The Samsung Galaxy S22 leaks have gained momentum once again as the official launch gets closer, which is expected on February 8th.
Based on everything that’s been leaked so far, we’ve already gotten a pretty good idea of what to expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship lineup, however, one of the most compelling rumors is that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to be the successor to the Galaxy Note series, for which the company halted production back in 2021.
This made room for speculations like an integrated S Pen along with a wider display and a rather squared-off design for the Galaxy S22 series. Now, some new renders show the much anticipated S22 series will come in four colors such as black, green, white, and pink gold.
Recent leaks from 91mobiles showcase detailed images, confirming that the design of the Plus model won’t be any different from the vanilla’s, while the Ultra model remains unique in terms of its design. The renders further show visible antenna lines over the rear frame, suggesting that it might be made of metal, but that’s hardly going to come as a surprise considering a flagship of its grade.
The rumors further suggest that Europe might be getting the Snapdragon variation as the Exynos chip was allegedly plagued with overheating problems leading to performance issues.
