2022 is just around the corner. In other words, product announcements will resume soon. Spring has always been a particularly busy time for big smartphone announcements, with CES in January and Mobile World Congress in February. These events are at stake as Omicron variants continue to spread, but hardware announcements are still ongoing. At the very least, we know Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy S22 early next year. And the latest Galaxy S22 leak is the biggest ever.
Galaxy S22 leak confirms final design
Last week we shared a video from Steve Hemmerstoffer showing off three compelling Galaxy S22 dummies. In the video, we’ll take a closer look at what we believe to be the final design of the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

If you doubt that those dummy units are accurate depictions of the phone, we are here to dispel them. on Wednesday, LetsGoDigital We have released leaked press material from Samsung that appears to be equipped with Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra. The publication states that it will not share additional details to protect the source. But as often as Samsung’s marketing material leaks before launch, we tend to believe this is genuine. The S22 poster in question is:
As you can see, the leaked design is virtually the same as the dummy design. The two phones in this poster look almost the same as those in the video above. This would suggest that all of the myriad Galaxy S22 leaks in recent months have been discovered all along.
Everything we know about the Galaxy S22
First of all, we need to talk about the Galaxy S22 Ultra. For months, I’ve been reading rumors and reports that Samsung is dropping the next Galaxy Note on an oversized S model. This almost proves it, as you can see the unique shape of the new phone and the addition of the S Pen in press rendering. Samsung seems to have ported all the signature features of the Galaxy Note to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. In addition, the Ultra model has a new camera array with a lens protruding directly from the rear panel. This is an interesting tweak from Samsung’s latest flagship mobile phone.
The poster only mentions the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but it looks like it’s supported next to either the Galaxy S22 or the Galaxy S22 Plus. Based on its size, I guess it’s the S22 Plus. In any case, you can see that the design of the two smaller models is similar to the design of the S21 series devices. Samsung may also have somewhat flattened the curve around the phone, similar to what Apple did with the iPhone 12.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced the Galaxy S22 yet and has no plans to announce it in January. In fact, just this week, Jon Prosser reported that Samsung will postpone the Unpacked event to announce its flagship phone due to supply chain issues. Currently, Samsung announced the Galaxy S22 series on February 9th and plans to start selling it on February 25th.
