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.

Samsung may have already tipped its hand about some of the key specs of the Samsung Galaxy S25. Though we’re many months out from the anticipated launch of the Galaxy S25 (the S24 was only launched in January of this year), Samsung has announced three new camera sensors that seem likely to be featured on the S25: the 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP9, the 50MP ISOCELL JN5, and 50MP ISOCELL GNJ.

For the 50MP GNJ sensor, we’re looking at what’s likely to be the Galaxy S25’s primary camera. It has a sensor size that’s roughly on par with the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus, with 1-micron pixels. For reference, 50MP is the approximate sensor and pixel size that’s been on phones since the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus. If this is the primary sensor for the S25, it means we’re going another year without a major change to the primary sensor, though Samsung claims efficiency gains of 29% in preview mode and 34% with 4K video at 60 frames per second.
