A hands-on image of the Samsung Galaxy S22 has emerged.
We’re only a few months away from the rumored debut date of the Samsung Galaxy S22, and another hands-on photograph of the phone has surfaced.
The most recent picture of the rumored Galaxy S22 was published on the Chinese blogging site Weibo by tipster Ice Universe.
The phone in the image seems almost identical to the Galaxy S21, with the same curved edges and vertically organized triple camera array. However, as MyFixGuide points out in its analysis, the camera lenses appear to protrude more from the rear of the phone, rather than dwelling beneath the surface as they did on the S21. The surface is also glossier than on the S21, which had a matte back.
The color is substantially deeper than the S21’s deepest hue, Phantom Grey, which has a gunmetal finish. Instead, the phone seems to be a genuine black, similar to the Phantom Black featured on the S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. This might imply that a new color choice for the regular S series device is on the way.
Of course, the phone is seen as maybe the bigger S22 Plus, which would explain the darker finish, since the S22 in the title could refer to any handset in the S22 lineup.
Only a few weeks ago, we heard rumors that the S22 will be priced similarly to the S21, with the basic model remaining competitively inexpensive at roughly £769/$799.
We’ve also heard a few rumors about the phone’s specifications. This information is once again provided by Ice Universe, which has a good track record with leaks.
The S22 will include a 50-megapixel (f/1.8) wide-angle sensor, a 12-megapixel (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 10-megapixel (f/2.2) telephoto lens with 3x zoom, according to the report. On the front, a 10-megapixel selfie camera is expected.
The leak also indicates the phone will feature a 6.06-inch display, which is significantly smaller than the 6.2-inch screen seen on the S21, but we won’t know which (if any) of these reports are accurate until early 2022.
