Excited for the AMD-powered editions of the Galaxy S22 series? So are we, but getting your hands on one of these won’t be easy in the slightest. That’s according to the latest industry rumor concerning Samsung’s next flagship series, which also happens to disclose some other technical details about the upcoming devices.

Let’s start with the more straightforward part of the news: display sizes. Namely, the Galaxy S22 is said to feature a 6.06-inch screen, 0.14 inches smaller compared to its predecessor. A near-identical resizing is in store for the Galaxy S22+, which is expected to sport a 6.55-inch panel. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, is destined for a 6.81-inch display. It should hence have a similar physical footprint to that of the 6.8-inch Galaxy S21 Ultra.

AMD or not, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will remain a few steps ahead of its peers

Furthermore, only the Galaxy S22 Ultra is anticipated to sport an LTPO panel, with the other two smartphones using LTPS tech, as per the same source. In the battery department, the trio is estimated to feature 3,800mAh, 4,600mAh, and 5,000mAh cells. So, no real change compared to this year’s models. Other than the base Galaxy S22 possibly looking at a slight downgrade compared to the 4,000mAh Galaxy S21 – at least on paper.

The lineup is also said to circumvent Samsung’s under-display camera tech. The very one responsible for one of the most underwhelming aspects of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. As for the main camera setups, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are expected to sport familiar-looking triple-lens setups utilizing a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto module, and another 12-megapixel, ultra-wide shooter.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S22 Ultra should utilize Samsung’s cutting-edge 108-megapixel sensor for its main camera and double down on the telephoto front for a total of four rear cameras. On top of leveraging a laser autofocusing system.

As for the system-on-chip powering the 2022 flagship range, the Snapdragon 898 is expected to be the silicon found in the vast majority of markets. While the Exynos 2200 is still on course to be commercialized by early next year, its yield is predicted to remain low until at least mid-2022. Meaning your chances of picking up a Galaxy S22-series device equipped with the much-anticipated AMD GPU are pretty slim, no matter where in the world you’re located.
