Yesterday afternoon, we got our first look at what could end up being the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Since then, new CAD renders have appeared for both the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus.

Starting off with the S22+, these also come from @OnLeaks in conjunction with 91mobiles. Looking at the renders, it seems that instead of opting for a drastic overhaul in the design department, the S22+ will look pretty much the same as the Galaxy S21+. This includes a triple camera setup on the back, with a module that “melts” into the frame.

In fact, the only real noticeable change here is that the volume buttons have been moved slightly lower. This was a complaint for some over the past year, as Samsung moved the buttons a bit too high to be comfortably pressed. The display will still feature a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera, but nothing else has been changed. According to @OnLeaks, the phone will include dimensions of 157.4mm x 75.8mm x 7.6mm, and the thickness is raised to 9.1mm when you include the camera module. 

There is one change that could be in the works for Samsung, and it comes down to the actual name. @OnLeaks explained that the renders he received were sent as the “Samsung Galaxy S22 Pro” and not the S22+.

Moving onto the Galaxy S22, we have another iterative update and nothing as drastic as what we saw with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The camera module remains the same, along with the display, and hole-punch selfie cutout.

@OnLeaks partnered with Zouton for the Galaxy S22 renders, and revealed what camera sensors are expected to be used. The Galaxy S22 is likely to use a 50MP primary wide-angle camera, along with 12MP ultra wide and telephoto sensors. Dimensions for the S22 come in at 146mm x 70.5mm x 7.6mm, lining up almost perfectly with the Galaxy S21.

Although some have speculated that Samsung could unveil its upcoming flagship lineup as early as December, @OnLeaks claims the devices won’t arrive until early 2022. We’re likely looking at a late-January announcement with the release coming in early February.

All three Galaxy S22 models are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 898/895 or the Samsung Exynos 2200, depending on the region. Other rumors have suggested that Samsung will be bringing back faster wired charging, which will definitely be a welcome addition.
