Samsung confirms February Galaxy Unpacked, teases S22 merger with the Note line

It's finally happening! An official press release written by Samsung's Mobile chief TM Roh revealed that the company is planning to hold the next Galaxy Unpacked in February. This is the one that everyone's been waiting for as the

Galaxy S22 series announcement is expected at this event.

Roh made sure to acknowledge last year's omission of a Galaxy Note phone in

his post, including the fans' disappointment. Addressing everything users loved about the Galaxy Note series, he says Samsung will "introduce you to the most noteworthy S series device we’ve ever created” at the event.

Reading between the lines here, it seems the Note series as we know it will be no more. Based on Roh's words, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will inherit everything that made the Note special, including the signature S Pen and a dedicated slot for it. "Get ready for the ultimate Ultra experience," the post enthusiastically reads at the end.


You will be able to reserve the Galaxy S22 series

Don't mistake this for a pre-order, though. It is just a way to reserve a slot for ordering the device once

Samsung has officially unveiled it.

What's even better is that you will receive a $50 credit, which you can then use to order any other Galaxy products from Samsung's website. And don't worry, you won't have to pay anything upfront while making the reservation.

Unfortunately, Samsung did not include the exact date and time of the Unpacked event in this press release. Previous rumors, however, tell us that it should be either on February 8 or February 9, so we have just a few weeks left.

Galaxy S22 expectations in a nutshell

Galaxy S22 price and storage

First and foremost, pricing. For the regular Galaxy S22, we expect a price between around $800, $1050 for the S22+ model, and $1300 for the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Of course, price will vary depending on the storage configuration you choose, which could start at 128GB and then go to 256GB, 512GB, and even a 1TB (1000GB) option for the S22+ and S22 Ultra.

Galaxy S22 cameras

The cameras of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are said to come with a new 50MP main camera, while likely keeping the same 12MP ultra-wide and 10MP 3X telephoto cameras from the Galaxy S21.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, is expected to keep the same 105MP camera. Although, leaks have shown us that Samsung is expecting to double down on the software to bring out the most out of its sensor, resulting in clearer images with more colors, less shaking in videos, and better focusing.

As for the rest on the Ultra's back, two new10MP 3X and 10X telephoto cameras, as well as a 12MP ultra-wide are said to be included. 

Galaxy S22 chip

Usually, each year Samsung releases two versions of its flagship series—one with a Snapdragon chip for the US market, and one equipped with its own Exynos SoC for the rest of the world.

However, 2022 might become the first year Samsung does not launch a Galaxy phone with an Exynos chip inside. Instead, rumors point at a version of Galaxy S22 series with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, with the company completely skipping on its own latest and greatest—the Exynos 2200.

Galaxy S22 display and battery

Samsung is famous for its amazing displays and it doesn't plan to disappoint this year either. The Galaxy S22 series is expected to come out with a 6.06-inch on the regular model, a 6.55-inch for the Galaxy S22+, and a 6.81-inch screen for the famed Note successor—the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The leaks we've had so far say that powering the S22 and S22+ will be a 3,700mAh and 4,500mAh batteries respectively. As for the beast of a phone that the Ultra is, it will have a 5,000mAh one.
