Samsung has officially confirmed the next Galaxy Unpacked for February 2022. The announcement came via an official post from Dr. TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics. He did not reveal the exact launch date but teased a lot of things that will be revealed in detail at the event.
The upcoming event is being touted as "the next evolution of Galaxy". Roh said Galaxy devices have offered features in the past that redefined the mobile industry and the same will happen again next month. He teased that they will take wraps off "the most noteworthy S series device" they have launched yet. This makes it clear that it is the Galaxy S22 series that will go official in the coming weeks. It is speculated that the event will take place on February 9th.
We have heard rumors that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is nothing but essentially a Galaxy Note device in disguise. This is exactly what the official announcement also hints at. We will see the high-end Galaxy S22 model packed with Galaxy Note features including stylus support. Samsung did the same with the Galaxy S21 Ultra as well but 2022 seems to be the farewell year of Galaxy Note lineup.
The lineup will also have standard Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus models. These two devices will be the pure Galaxy S-series phones with none of the Galaxy Note features. All three flagships will be powered by Samsung's newest Exynos 2200 processor that boasts AMD RDNA2 based GPU. It will be limited to select regions as other markets will get models with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. We can also expect impressive camera performance from 2022 Samsung flagships.
