Samsung to begin 2022 with the Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy S22 series arriving later
Jon Prosser has weighed in once again on the release of the Galaxy S21 FE and the Galaxy S22 series. Earlier this month, the leaker claimed that Samsung had delayed the former until January 2022, with January 11 touted as the device's launch date. Rumour had it that Samsung would be announcing the Galaxy S22 series that month, or December 2021 at the earliest.
Now, Prosser asserts that Samsung is working towards a different date instead. Reputedly, Samsung will begin accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 Ultra during week 6 of 2022, which is the second week of February. In other words, Prosser believes that the Galaxy S22 series will be pre-orderable from February 7.
It is worth noting that Prosser includes the following caveat: 'Samsung hasn't solidified things just yet'. Hence, the series' launch date could move around between now and early next year, as has been the case with the much delayed Galaxy S21 FE.
Presumably, Samsung will host another Galaxy Unpacked event for the release of the Galaxy S22 series. If that is the case, we imagine it will be in late January, which would give the Galaxy S21 FE a short lifespan as Samsung's latest flagship smartphone. @UniverseIce seems to think so at any rate, although they do not have a specific release date yet either.
