According to this latest rumor the Samsung Galaxy S22 will be cheaper than expected, as the new flagship base model could be released for the same price as its predecessor instead of becoming more expensive as previously claimed by leakers.

About a month ago, a leak claimed that Samsung would be raising the prices of its upcoming Galaxy S22 series of smartphones across the board. However, the Samsung-focused website SamMobile now asserts that won't be the case for the base model Galaxy S22, which could supposedly be priced at US$799. This would mean that the Galaxy S22 would carry the same price tag as its immediate predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S21, which is now discounted to US$699 on Amazon.

As always, such rumors and speculations regarding the pricing of upcoming smartphones should be treated with caution, since the final pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S22 could still change until its expected release date in February 2022. According to numerous previous leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S22 could come with the new Samsung Exynos 2200, which not only features ARM-based Cortex X2 and Cortex A710 cores, but possibly also a raytracing-capable AMD GPU.

Besides this purported performance upgrade, there appear to be slight changes to the design of Samsung's new flagship smartphone, and the base model S22 could come with a slightly smaller 6.06-inch AMOLED display which should still feature a high refresh rate of 120Hz and a resolution of 2,400 by 1,080 pixel. The 4,000 mAh battery capacity and 10 megapixel selfie cam apparently won't get noticeable upgrades, but the triple camera setup on the back of the Samsung Galaxy S22 could consist of a better 50 MP main camera and an additional 12 MP ultra-wide lens and a 10 MP tele focus camera.
