The flagship Samsung Galaxy S22 family of smartphones is expected to emerge early in 2022, and now a series of diagrams seem to reaffirm the allegedly leaked designs we’ve already seen.
The diagrams were shared with SamMobile, though the site makes no mention of the source or context for them, so take them with a pinch of salt. All the same, they seem to match the Galaxy S22 designs we’ve seen before, while also confirming the reports that the handsets will be downsized this generation.
Here are the pictures of the Galaxy S22 and larger S22 Pro — it seems the earlier report of the “Plus” name being dropped was also accurate.
We’re looking at a possible 149.98 x 70.56 x 7.65mm for the S22, and 157.43 x 75.83 x 7.65mm for the S22 Pro. For reference, the S21 was 151.7x 71.2 x 7.9mm, while the S21 Plus was 161.5 x 75.6 x 7.8mm. The shape, as previously indicated, is the same as the current Galaxy S21, with curved corners and a raised area for the camera bump. But now we actually have some measurements here, too, with it taking up 49.63 x 21.32mm on the Galaxy S22, and 49.95 x 21.64mm on the S22 Pro.
Once again we also see that the Galaxy S22 Ultra could not only support the S Pen like its predecessor but actually have a place to dock it like the Note series of old. That means it will likely be bundled, and a whole lot more useful than the optional accessory it became for the S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 3.
One interesting change, though is the docking port for the S Pen has been relocated from the right-hand side where it used to live on the Note to the left. That would take some getting used to for long-time users.
To recap some earlier S22 rumors, all three models are likely to feature a conventional punch-hole selfie, rather than an under-display one, with a 6.1-inch display on the regular S22 and a 6.6-inch one on the S22+. We are still not sure about the S22 Ultra’s diagonal. Speaking of cameras, the S22 and S22+ are likely to get an upgraded main snapper – Samsung’s ISOCELL GN5 – a 50MP sensor with all-directional autofocus and big 1.0µm pixels.
