Samsung Galaxy S22 series to reportedly go official in February

Confusion surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S22 series launch continues.

Highlights
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 series is tipped to debut around the last week of January.
  • There are reports suggesting the flagships could debut in February.
  • The lineup should include the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra. 

Samsung Galaxy S22 is the company’s forthcoming flagship series and is expected to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset. There have been reports that the lineup could debut in February. The company is rumoured to have pushed the event in the wake of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE announcement being moved to January owing to chip shortage. According to tipster Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup could be released in the “last week of January.” While this contradicts most recent rumours, it does fall in line with earlier reports.

How likely is the Samsung Galaxy S22 series launching in January is something that only time can tell. SamMobile, on the other hand, reports the phones will be launched in early February. But then again, things could change at any point in time given the chip shortage worldwide. The phones will be announced, they should be up for pre-orders and around a week or so later, the phones could hit stores. How confident we are about the said timelines is something that remains to be seen in the next few weeks.
