Samsung won’t be announcing its new flagship Galaxy smartphones until next month, but German IT site WinFuture has gone ahead and shared their key specifications for mobile users who are considering updating their handsets this year.
According to the data shared by WinFuture, Samsung’s new Galaxy phones, which comprise the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra, will, as expected, feature the company’s latest and greatest mobile chip, the Exynos 2200. Exclusive to the European models, the Exynos 2200 is an octa-core SoC that’s been highly anticipated for its Xclipse GPU, which leverages AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture to enable next-generation visuals in future mobile titles.
The U.S. variants of Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 phones will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip instead, but all users of the Ultra model can expect to enjoy a 120 Hz AMOLED screen with 3080 x 1440p resolution, memory capacities of up to 12 GB, a quad camera system that can shoot up to 108 megapixel photos, and a 5000 mAh battery that supports both fast and Qi charging.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 lineup will be officially unveiled as part of this year’s Unpacked event, which will be livestreamed on February 9, 2022. The company has shared an introductory video for the Exynos 2200 chip ahead of the event that teases the features enabled by the chip and GPU, such as hardware ray tracing and variable rate shading.
