Samsung Galaxy S22 series is scheduled to launch today. However, the series consisting of Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra has already been leaked online revealing the specs, features, price, color variants, and more. Find out everything here.
Samsung has scheduled the “Galaxy Unpacked” event for Wednesday, February 9, 2022, where it will unveil the latest Galaxy S22 series alongside new S8 Tablets. We could also have a new Galaxy Note device (as hinted by Samsung itself previously). However, we could also have Galaxy S22 Ultra replacing the Note series.
Ahead of the launch, multiple leaks have revealed a lot of information about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy series. The most prominent one is a leak from an Australian retailer which reveals several key details about the S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra including Nightography, Victus+ Protection, etc.
Other leaks are from reliable tipsters who have shared images, specifications, and prices of the upcoming series a few hours before the launch event.
Amazon Australia Retailer Lists Samsung Galaxy S22 Series Revealing Key Details
The latest leak about the Samsung Galaxy S22 series comes from an Amazon Australia retailer who has listed the upcoming devices as part of a bundle with the Echo Show 8. The listing includes the Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra models in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options.
Only the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is revealed to have the largest storage capacity. The color options shown in the listing include blush, burgundy, green, black, and white for each mode.
The online retailer’s listing has also unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra models with the S Pen. This further supports the belief that S22 Ultra is going to replace the Galaxy Note. It’ll be the first Non-Galaxy Note Samsung device to come with a stylus.
Features like Nightography, Victus+ Protection & Price Revealed
The information available in the listing doesn’t reveal some of the very specific details. However, there are some interesting things to note there. There is information available about the pro-grade camera with the clarification that both front and back cameras will take night portrait photos.
There is also something known as “Nightography.” It suggests that the larger pixels on the sensor and auto framerate will help you shoot clearly in the dark. It also mentions that Aa 58% wider OIS correction angle will help you shoot a more stable video. The 108MP main camera on S22 Ultra is also confirmed from the listing.
For device protection, the S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra will have a Gorilla Glass Victus+ display, a tougher Armor Aluminimum frame, and IP68 waterproofing. The display is named “BrightVision” which claims to be the brightest ever from Samsung.
The listing states that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will be available from March 4, 2022, in Australia. The devices are available for pre-order currently, and the prices are as follows:
- S22 Ultra 512GB – AU$2562.90
- S22 Ultra 256GB – AU$2397.90
- S22 Ultra 128GB – AU$2232.90
- S22+ 128GB – AU$1902.90
- S21 128GB – AU$1572.90
Remember that the prices are in Australian Dollar (AUD), and do not confuse them with USD. It is also possible that the listing turns out to be inaccurate for certain claims. We’ll have to wait for a few hours to find that out.
