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 messed up the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s most important feature
Two Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 phones next to each other.

Samsung just held its latest Galaxy Unpacked July 2023 event in Seoul, Korea, and it was packed with a ton of new upcoming products. We have the next generation of foldables with the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, as well as the Galaxy Watch 6 series and Galaxy Tab S9 lineup.

But let’s take a closer look at the Galaxy Z Flip 5, which is hot on the heels of the latest Motorola Razr Plus. Both flip phones are pretty similar with that larger cover display, but unfortunately, this is where Samsung really fumbled the ball.

This tiny Android phone almost ruined the Galaxy S23 Ultra for me
The back of the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Zenfone 10.

Ahead of going away for a few days, I decided to swap from the phone I’d just finished reviewing to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, ensuring I had a great camera with me while on my break. Nothing odd about that, right? Usually, no, except I was coming from the diminutive Asus Zenfone 10, and picking up the S23 Ultra afterward felt like I'd chosen to take a 12.9-inch iPad Pro as my replacement device.

For a short while, the Galaxy S23 Ultra's enormous dimensions bordered on the laughably unmanageable. But then, it redeemed itself in the best way possible.
A truly massive size difference

I’m glad the Samsung Galaxy Note died when it did

The Samsung Galaxy Note changed the mobile industry when it arrived, and it became a firm favorite with a lot of people. Its committed, passionate fanbase is perhaps only rivaled by those who love the iPhone.

But all that was a long time ago, and now in mid-2023, I’m very glad Samsung killed the Note when it did.
