Samsung Galaxy S22 series
Based on the leaks and rumors that we’ve seen so far, the Galaxy S22 series will include three devices — the vanilla Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S22 Plus, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. All three phones will pack either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip or Samsung’s Exynos 2200 SoC (varies by region). The regular Galaxy S22 will feature a design similar to the Galaxy S21 from last year, but it will have a smaller footprint. It will pack a 6.06-inch AMOLED display with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera and a triple camera setup. The device will likely measure 146 x 70.5 x 7.6mm.

The device will measure 157.4 x 75.8 x 7.6mm and weigh around 195 grams.
