Galaxy S22 might feature ultrathin bezels and a wider display

The Galaxy S22 series is likely to be the next Samsung flagship, and it could launch in early 2022. Despite being months away, we’ve already gotten plenty of leaks ahead of its anticipated launch. The latest leak claims that the Galaxy S22 lineup will come with ultrathin bezels, leading to a wider display and generally sleeker look.

The latest development comes from the tipster Ice Universe on Twitter, who posted alleged tempered glass screen protectors of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ alongside the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+. As per the images, Samsung will trim the bezels and make the edges rounder. The Galaxy S22 Ultra in the series is also touted to have a new camera design and S Pen support.

This is the first time we have seen the Tempered Glass Screen Protector of Galaxy S22 and S22 +. We can find that they are more rounded and slightly fatter than S21 series.

As per a previous leak, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ might have a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, which seems likely looking at the tempered glass photos. Meanwhile, the Ultra variant could have a 19.3:9 aspect ratio. The images also suggest that Samsung would opt for equal bezels all around the display. The edges seem slightly rounder as well. However, screen protectors can be a bit deceiving in terms of bezel proportions, so the bezels might not be as slim as seen in the leaked pictures.

As per the rumor mill, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series could be launched in February next year. Depending on the region, the trio might be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 system on a chip or a flagship Exynos chipset. Finally, these smartphones are expected to come with support for 25-watt fast charging.

Why the Galaxy S23 is the small phone you’ve been waiting for
Galaxy S23 back in hand.

I think we have the wrong idea of a “compact phone.” Sure, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini fit the bill with their 5.42-inch displays, but it’s 2023 – the era of content consumption. And In my opinion, any screen under 6 inches is too small for a regular person watching videos on their phone.

The definition of "big" phones has changed in recent years. In 2013, when the Galaxy Note 3 launched with its 5.7-inch display, it was considered huge. But a decade later, with the advancements in shrinking the bezels and phones getting bigger, I’m here telling you how a phone with a 6.1-inch display is the compact phone you’ve been waiting for.

New Galaxy S24 Ultra rumor teases a major camera upgrade
The back of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, showing the camera lenses.

It's no secret that the Galaxy S23 Ultra's cameras are impressive, but it seems like the S24 Ultra may be one-upping its predecessor. Aside from the addition of its 200MP sensor, there wasn't much of a difference between the S22 Ultra's camera array and the one found on the S23 Ultra. However, a new leak suggests that the S24 Ultra will be taking a major step to elevate camera performance.

In a post to Twitter, leaker @Tech_Reve claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be ditching the S23 Ultra's 3x and 10x telephoto lenses in favor of a single 3x to 10x variable folded telephoto lens. While the change may seem subtle, the difference in what the S24 Ultra can accomplish with its camera array could be vast as a result.
