The Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will be smaller than this year's models and with minor design tweaks
Yesterday, OnLeaks provided a first look at the Galaxy S22 Ultra, months before Samsung unveils the device. In short, the Galaxy S22 Ultra looks more like a Galaxy Note than it does the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung has even included an S Pen housing in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, a feature that it has previously reserved for its Galaxy Note line.
By contrast, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will follow the design language that Samsung established with the Galaxy S21 series. According to OnLeaks, the Galaxy S22 measures 146 x 70.5 x 7.6 mm, a much smaller footprint than the Galaxy S21.
Reputedly, Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S22 with a 6.06-inch display, 0.14-inches smaller than the one that the Galaxy S21 has. The Galaxy S22 will only be 2 g lighter than its predecessor at 167 g, too.
Similarly, the Galaxy S22 Plus measures 157.4 x 74.8 x 7.6 mm and has a 6.55-inch display. For comparison, the Galaxy S21 Plus' 161.5 x 75.6 mm chassis houses a 6.7-inch display. The Galaxy S22 Plus is also 0.2 mm thinner than this year's model and is 5 g lighter.
Overall, little separates the looks of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus from their predecessors. Samsung has revised the rear camera housing somewhat, but it follows the style of those that introduced earlier this year. The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus do not gain any additional cameras, either.
Incidentally, @DSCCRoss asserts that only the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have an LTPO display. Hence, neither the Galaxy S22 nor the Galaxy S22 Plus will support dynamic refresh rates.
