It’s been a busy day for Samsung rumors, as we have heard about the pricing for the upcoming Galaxy S22 along with seeing some new renders. As it turns out, Samsung is here to keep the “official” hype-train rolling as the company has announced its next Galaxy Unpacked event.
According to Samsung, Galaxy Unpacked 2022 will take place on February 9, kicking off at 10 AM ET, or 7 AM PT.
The event will be live-streamed, as expected, and this is likely where we’ll learn everything there is to know about the Galaxy S22 series. Samsung could even potentially show off the rumored Galaxy Tab S8 lineup of devices.
When Samsung first teased the event a few weeks ago, there were more than a few mentions made in regards to the Galaxy Note. It’s becoming more and more clear that the company wants to appease those who want a phone with a built-in S Pen and don’t want to jump into the foldable market yet.
With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, this phone is essentially going to become the new Galaxy Note complete with a built-in S Pen slot. This was one of the biggest complaints with the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which require cases or workarounds just to carry the S Pen with you all of the time.
Other expected features include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset which will be found in many flagship phones over the course of the next year. As for the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, this is likely to be just an iterative update as not much will change in the design department.
While you can’t pre-order Samsung’s next flagship phone just yet, you can register through Samsung’s website and you’ll save $50 when the time comes. It also wouldn’t come as a surprise if Samsung comes out swinging with pre-order deals and trade-in offers as it usually does when a new phone is released.
