Samsung’s middle new smartphone model is supposed to get a huge update. According to a leak, the Samsung Galaxy S22+, which will be unveiled together with the S22 and S22 Ultra at the beginning of February, will inherit some features from the Ultra model.
Samsung Galaxy S22+ as new top model
The new information comes from Indian leaker Ishan Agarwal, who revealed some exciting information about the mid-range S22 model about three weeks before the Samsung Galaxy S22+ unveiling.
After Samsung releases the S22 Ultra as a replacement for the Note series and it should also come up with a different design, the S22+ could be the new top model for fans of classic smartphones.
According to this, the display of the Samsung Galaxy S22+ is supposed to shrink in size from 6.7 inches to 6.55 inches compared to last year’s S21+ model, but the AMOLED panel is supposed to get an update compared to the normal S22.
There is talk of a peak brightness of 1,750 nits and a dynamic refresh rate. At the same time, the S22+ is said to weigh 195 grams (compared to 228 grams for the Galaxy S22 Ultra and 167 grams for the small Galaxy S22) and offer space for a 4,500 mAh battery. Just like in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, this should be able to be charged quickly via USB-C with up to 45 watts.
Camera remains the same
There should be no differences between the S22 and S22+ in terms of the camera setup, though. Agarwal sees a 50-megapixel main camera in both smartphones.
In return, according to the leaker, a 108 megapixel camera including “Remosaic Mode” is available in the middle model, which is also used in the S22 Ultra. HDR recordings with 12 bits and a triple, real optical zoom are also reportedly available.
All in all, the Samsung Galaxy S22+ is supposed to use a setup of three camera lenses including LED flash on the back. Furthermore, the leaker assumes that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will be available for sale starting February 25, 2022. We will probably know whether all leaks are true from the beginning of February when the company presents the smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event.
