Samsung Galaxy S22 series launch (expectations)
The South Korean smartphone manufacturer hasn’t revealed many details about the upcoming products yet. As per rumours and leaks, the smartphone manufacturer will announce a range of new products including the Samsung Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy S8 Tab series.
Rumours suggest that Samsung will announce three models under the S22 series – the Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The Ultra, Samsung hinted, will bring the goodness of the Note.
The Galaxy S22 is expected to bring powerful specifications when compared to the predecessor S21. Interestingly, rumours suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series in India will come packed with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor instead of Exynos 2200 SoC. The company usually launches Exynos model in India and Europe but looks like the company has different plans for this year.

As far as rumours are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus will come with a minimum of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with starting price of €849 (roughly translates to around Rs 72,400) and €1049 (around Rs 89,500), respectively.
What about the Ultra?
The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, is expected to bring features from the Note series. The Ultra will come packed with S Pen support, sharp corners, a large rectangular camera module, and more. This model will be priced slightly higher than the S22 and S22 Plus. Samsung will announce specific pricing details at the Unpacked event tonight.
