The Samsung Galaxy S22 should offer a new look and plenty of upgrades
The Samsung Galaxy S22 won’t arrive next year, but leaks about Samsung’s next flagship are already starting to appear. Potential upgrades include a possible under-display camera, a thinner design, and even better 8K video recording.
That’s good news. As good as the Galaxy S21 is — especially the cameras on the Galaxy S21 Ultra — there’s definitely room for improvement. This is especially true because the Galaxy S22 will be competing with the iPhone 13 by the time Samsung releases this device. And with Samsung reportedly planning to skip the Galaxy Note 21’s release this year, the pressure will be on the Galaxy S21 to deliver another premium flagship experience.
