Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Note wallpapers appear to confirm tweaked aspect ratios and display resolutions
The Galaxy S22 series is fast approaching, with Samsung expected to announce the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 Note in early February 2022. Dummy units of all three have already leaked this week, as have official wallpapers. While not necessarily all the wallpapers that Samsung will release for the Galaxy S22 series, they could be those that Samsung uses for marketing purposes.
Regardless, @UniverseIce has noticed that the files contain information about the trio's display resolutions and aspect ratios. Writing on Twitter, the leaker has demonstrated that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus have 2,340 x 1,080-pixel displays, 60 pixels shorter than the displays in their predecessors.
This slight change also results in an altered aspect ratio. This year, Samsung opted for 20:9 panels in the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus, an aspect ratio replicated by the Galaxy S21 Ultra. By contrast, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus have 19.5:9 aspect ratios on account of their shorter displays.
Incidentally, Samsung has adopted a 19.3:9 aspect ratio for the Galaxy S22 Note, previously referred to as the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This strange aspect ratio comes from the device's 3,088 x 1,440-pixel resolution, 112 pixels shorter than the Galaxy S21 Ultra's. All models should launch globally with at least the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and probably the Exynos 2200 in some markets like Europe.
