Samsung is probably going to unveil the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra at the Unpacked event. The highlight of the event would be the transition from the Galaxy Note series to the Galaxy S series. For the uninitiated, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is probably going to feature a built-in S Pen slot. Moreover, we are able to expect an identical design as its predecessors on the quality and Plus models, whereas the Ultra variant goes to be chunkier (to imbibe the Note design) and include a replacement camera array design.
If tablets are what you’re after, there’s the Galaxy Tab S8 series to appear forward to. As always, there’ll be three tablets within the lineup — Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra. Going by previous leaks, all three tablets are likely to pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. As for the smartphones, while it had been initially rumored that Samsung may finally offer Snapdragon chipsets on all models across all regions globally, it’ll likely not be the case. The Galaxy S22 series will include the recently announced Exynos 2200 chipset with the AMD Xclipse GPU in tow.
Since the alleged Galaxy S22 launch is just a pair of weeks from now, we are able to expect Samsung to verify the date within the coming days. Considering multiple corroborations from leakers, it’s safe to assume that Samsung will indeed unveil its new Galaxy devices within the second week of February.
