Samsung starts mass-producing the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra
According to Roland Quandt, Samsung has begun manufacturing its next flagship smartphones in earnest. Writing on WinFuture and Twitter, Quandt states that Samsung has started 'ramping up mass production' of parts for all Galaxy S22 models, which is thought to be the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Samsung has not announced when it will host its next Galaxy Unpacked event, having scheduled several this year for smartwatches, smartphones and even laptops. However, leakers like Jon Prosser assert that Samsung will start selling the Galaxy S22 series by early February, with the Galaxy S21 FE arriving a month earlier.
Quandt believes that the timing of mass production reinforces this release window; typically, Samsung takes two or three months to launch a smartphone from when it starts mass-producing parts. Currently, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are believed to resemble their predecessors. By contrast, the Galaxy S22 Ultra could combine the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as leaked renders have shown.
