There is a Galaxy S22 rumor that hasn’t gotten lots of play because it emerged this week, however we actually hope its true. Samsung is allegedly going to extend the quantity of assist you get with the Galaxy S22. As a substitute of three years of software program updates, the rumor claims, you’ll be able to count on 4 years of Android updates with the Galaxy S22.

That is huge information, if true. One of many largest edges Apple has over the Android world is that it helps iPhones with software program updates for ages and ages. The iOS 15 replace nonetheless works on telephones that got here out six years in the past, for crying out loud.
Samsung’s not going to have the ability to match that, however this rumored improve in software program assist strikes the Galaxy telephones just a little bit nearer to the form of assist iPhone customers take pleasure in.
If you’re solely now tuning into the Galaxy Unpacked dwell stream — embedded above in your comfort — Samsung is operating its standard pre-show reel that highlights the logos of previous Unpacked occasions whereas futuristic music performs. As hype movies go, it’s totally soothing.
Samsung typically rolls out unique colours for its telephones on its web site, and that could possibly be taking place this time round, too. Leaker Evan Blass has posted what he calls “unique on-line colours” on his Twitter account, with photos of the totally different fashions, too.
If you cannot see the tweet, we have posted a display screen cap above. The Galaxy S22 Extremely’s on-line colours will allegedly be graphite, purple and sky blue. The Galaxy S22 is tipped to have cream, graphite, sky blue, and violet choices.
It will not be lengthy till we see how correct this leak — and the a whole lot of different Galaxy S22 leaks — are.
There’s one other telephone that will probably be affected by the Galaxy S22’s introduced value right now — that will be the Galaxy S21 FE that Samsung shipped final month.
One of the vital interesting issues concerning the authentic Galaxy S20 FE was the truth that it had many of the options of Samsung’s essential flagships, however at a fraction of the worth — the S20 FE price $300 lower than the Galaxy S20 when it debuted in 2020. Since Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 at decrease costs, that trick was tougher to tug off with the S21 FE. That telephone prices $699, however that is solely $100 cheaper than the principle S21.

In lower than an hour, we will discover out.

How a few good Samsung Galaxy S22 household picture earlier than Unpacked will get began? This picture posted by @TheGalox_ on Twitter reveals a leaked picture of the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Extremely.
As you’ll be able to see, the common S22 and S22 Plus appear like an evolution of the contour lower design of the Galaxy S21 with rounded edges. However the Galaxy S22 Extremely has its personal look with a digital camera array that is extra flush with the again of the telephone and squared off edges. And when you cannot see it on this picture, count on a built-in S Pen on the Extremely.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 dwell stream is now dwell with over 20,000 folks tuning in on Samsung’s YouTube channel to observe the evolution of the Unpacked artwork over time and take heed to some trippy music. Sure, now we have just a little time to kill, however the anticipation is certainly constructing…
A brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Extremely video has leaked exhibiting off the important thing options of Samsung’s new flagship pill a bit early. You will see that there is a enormous show together with S Pen integration, in addition to the power to run three apps directly through multi-window software program.
This video additionally reveals what seems to be a full-sized keyboard and touchpad, in addition to a Floor-like kickstand on the again. This could possibly be the primary good iPad Professional rival from the Android camp.
One other factor to contemplate is how the face-off between Samsung Galaxy S22 vs. Cellphone 13 will prove. The iPhone 13 is a stellar telephone, although the shortage of a 120Hz show arguably holds it again.
However the Galaxy S22 is tipped to not solely get the core options of the S21 but in addition some notable upgrades, principally focussed on refinements to the triple digital camera array. That might make it a reasonably interesting telephone for anybody deciding now’s the time for a change from Apple and its locked down ecosystem.
The Galaxy S22 is shaping as much as be a bit extra evolution not revolution over the Galaxy S21. That not a foul factor in, as our Samsung Galaxy S21 evaluate we concluded it is a very effective telephone.
However going by the rumors to this point, there could also be just a few notable upgrades. So that can assist you make snese of them we have divvied up the most important rumored variations between the Samsung Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S21.

The digital camera will see main enchancment. #GalaxyUnpacked #samsung #Unpacked #Demonix #DemonixLeaks #GalaxyS22 #S22Ultra pic.twitter.com/zmmouLXa4LFebruary 9, 2022
It appears to be like like some official advertising and marketing photos of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus have popped up on-line.
Do not count on a dramatic departure from the Galaxy S22’s Contour Minimize design, however that darkish inexperienced shade appears to be like reasonably catching. Appears to be like like Samsung has achieved away with the two-tone shade scheme for the digital camera module and the rear panel; that is likely to be just a little disappointing, because the S21’s Phantom Violet actually drew one’s eye, albeit in a blingtastic vogue.
One other Galaxy S22 pre-order bonus that is rumored to be on the playing cards is that Samsung will throw in a pair of the Galaxy Buds Professional wi-fi earbuds.
That is a fairly beneficiant supply because the Samsung Galaxy Buds Professional usually are not your common pair of earbuds. In actual fact, they secured a spot in our greatest noise-cancelling earbuds roundup. We have additionally awarded the Samsung Galaxy Buds Professional the “Most modern headphones award” within the Tom’s Information Awards 2021 Audio class. We will not verify if this rumor is reliable, so do not gest too excited simply but!
And this is one other last-minute leak, courtesy of Amazon Australia. It appears to point out off the costs of the Galaxy S22 vary. Beginning at AU$1572.90, these costs appear just a little steeper than anticipated, so take them with a severe dose of skepticism.
We might roughly count on the Galaxy S22 vary to have the identical pricing cadence as that of the Galaxy S21 lineup. Maybe the Galaxy S22 Extremely could possibly be just a little pricier given it is tipped to have Be aware-like options. However in a aggressive smartphone area, we doubt Samsung will need to go too far with mountain climbing up its flagship costs.
A whole lot of Android updates is likely to be boring, providing small tweaks and safety upgrades to telephones, typically downloading within the background. However they’re just about important for preserving a smartphone operating easily and safe.
So the rumor that Samsung may equip the Galaxy S22 vary, in addition to the Galaxy S21 and different flagship grade units with 4 years on Android updates is sweet information. It is also probably an enormous deal, as not many telephone makers supply such prolonged assist. An extended replace program would assist lengthen the lifetime of a telephone, so Samsung is likely to be main the cost right here for others to observe.
As talked about earlier, the Galaxy S22 Extremely is about to be spearhead right now’s Unpacked occasion. However is it the massive telephone for you? The place as soon as the Galaxy Be aware was the one actual contender for giant Android telephones, now bigger handsets are fairly widespread.
So listed below are our early ideas on how the battle would possibly play out between the Samsung Galaxy S22 Extremely vs Google Pixel 6 Professional. After all of the Google Pixel 6 Professional was the Android telephone Roland Moore-Colyer was ready for final 12 months, as it is a killer huge telephone; the Galaxy S22 Extremely might want to deliver out the massive weapons.
Probably the one merchandise we will hear about right now at Unpacked are the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8. However this week noticed some stirrings about one other potential product launch.
A Galaxy Tab S8 announcement press launch that fell into the arms of leakers contained an odd footnote concerning the pill’s reverse charging options. Based on the footnote, you can cost the Galaxy Tab S8 at 15W speeds utilizing choose Galaxy telephones. That is not the bizarre half, although. The unusual factor was that the press launch particularly listed the Galaxy A53 as a type of telephones — and that gadget hasn’t been introduced but.
That is precipitated some rumor websites to invest that the Galaxy A53 may additionally seem right now, although we predict that is a little bit of a stretch. Samsung will doubtless need everybody speaking concerning the Galaxy S22 — not some midrange telephone that is a part of its Galaxy A sequence. Which isn’t to say that there isn’t any such telephone within the works — rumors are choosing up concerning the Galaxy A53. However a type of rumors is that the telephone will arrive in March.
Yup, a month from now we could possibly be doing this another time.
Samsung actually has lots of methods to observe its Unpacked occasion — the whole lot from TikTok to Amazon Reside to Reddit will probably be internet hosting a feed. However probably the most intriguing manner is likely to be digital actuality. Or as we’re now ordered to name it by Mark Zuckerberg, the metaverse.
For a VR tackle right now’s proceedings, head over to Samsung 837X. That is the immersive part of Samsung’s flagship New York retailer the place you’ll be able to watch product reveals just like the one right now.
The Galaxy S22 Extremely feels just like the star attraction headed into Unpacked, and for good cause — it is rumored to revive most of the options we missed when Samsung went by way of 2021 with out issuing a brand new Galaxy Be aware. However do not sleep on Samsung’s different rumored Extremely product, the Galaxy Tab S8 Extremely.
That is, probably, a 14.6-inch pill with some severe energy — sufficient possibly to even be a viable various to the iPad Professional. Our colleague Mark Spoonauer actually thinks so, and he by no means imagined himself getting enthusiastic about an Android pill. Discover out the 5 methods the Galaxy Tab S8 Extremely may problem Apple’s pill dominance, from the included S Pen to its rumored design.
For those who’re even enthusiastic about the potential of choosing up no matter Samsung’s asserting right now, you may need to act now and reserve your house in line for pre-ordering your telephone or pill. Samsung’s been operating a promotion the place you’ll be able to assure a $50 credit score towards different Galaxy merchandise by making a reservation to put an order and right now’s your final day to take action.
You are not obligated to tug the set off on a purchase order, however registering will make you eligible for different affords as soon as pre-orders start. Samsung’s reservation web site shuts up store at 9 a.m. ET — an hour earlier than Unpacked will get underway.
Good morning and welcome to our Samsung Galaxy Unpacked dwell weblog. We’ll be bringing you all the massive information because the Galaxy S22 vary is unveiled, along with info and evaluation round the whole lot else that will get introduced.
