We had exclusively revealed last week that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S22 series in February 2022. A few days ago, another report had confirmed that the South Korean firm has started the mass production of some of the components used in the upcoming high-end phones. Another leak has hinted at the production schedule and color variants of the phones in the Galaxy S22 lineup.
According to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, Samsung has scheduled the Galaxy S22 mass production to start in the first week of December 2021. Moreover, he also claimed that the Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22+ would be launched in four color variants: Black, Green, Pink Gold, and White. The Galaxy S22 Ultra could be released in four colors as well: Black, Dark Red, Green, and White.
Since these colors were also revealed in another leak, it looks like the information could be accurate. The Galaxy S22 series could be unveiled during MWC 2022, and the pre-orders could start in the second week of February 2022.

The Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22+ could feature 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch Super AMOLED 120Hz displays, respectively, with Full HD+ resolution.
