Samsung has only just lifted the lid on its mid-range Galaxy S21 FE smartphone, but eyes are already turning to what’s next from the South Korean firm. Rumours are rife that its latest Galaxy S22 flagship will be unveiled soon with a more powerful chipset, improved camera, better battery life, and brighter OLED display.
A glossy new design seems likely alongside an upgraded Ultra model which may get an S Pen stylus just like the now-extinct Galaxy Note range. The team at 91mobiles have even shared images of how the devices could look with the Ultra getting a more industrial design and five cameras.
Samsung usually reveals its new flagship devices in February and March and whispers suggest that 2022 will follow a similar launch cycle.
Although the S22 is bound to be packed with upgrades it seems those wanting to own one may need to be prepared to pay a hefty price to pop this next-generation smartphone in their pocket. Unconfirmed rumours suggest the Galaxy S22 will start from around €912 which is considerably more than Samsung’s €879 pricing for last year’s S21.
To make things worse, the S21 is now one year old and that means there are some decent deals to be bagged on this current flagship.
EE is even dishing out laptops when signing up to the network and we can expect to see even bigger and better S21 deals when the S22 is finally revealed in the first part of the year.
Of course, if you want the best smartphone Samsung has ever made then we’re pretty sure the Galaxy S22 will beat the ageing S21 when it comes to features and performance, but things might not be so clear when it comes to value for money.
If the S21 drops in price and the S22 really is as expensive as rumours suggest then fans could face a pretty tough choice to make in the spring.
Express.co.uk will bring you full details of a launch as soon as we find out more.
If you can’t wait to upgrade the new S21 FE is certainly worth a look. This device will go on sale next week and features a stunning 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a speedy 120Hz refresh rate.
There’s also a powerful processor, triple-lens rear camera, embedded fingerprint scanner and wireless charging. Prices start from £699 with Samsung currently offering three months of Disney+ for free.
