Korea’s Digital Daily (via Engadget) claims a Samsung official confirmed the date, and added that the company will start sending invitations for the event at the end of January.
According to the outlet, the Galaxy S22 series phones will be available for pre-order right after the event, on Feb. 9, with sales starting on Feb. 24. The products will also be showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which is scheduled to start on Feb. 28.
None of this has been officially confirmed on Samsung’s official communication channels. However, the timing is consistent with Samsung’s previous Galaxy S series launches, which typically happen in either January or February.
Rumors say that Samsung’s Galaxy S22 phones are likely to come with either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, or Samsung’s own Exynos 2200 chip.
Leaker Evan Blass shared an image of the Galaxy S22 Ultra earlier this month. If the image is an accurate representation of the device, it will have more in common, design-wise, with the Galaxy Note series than the S series, with heavily rounded edges on the sides and a flat top and bottom, as well as support for Samsung’s S-Pen.
Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S21 FE, a $699 smartphone that’s essentially a slightly downgraded version of last year’s Galaxy S21. That device will become available for purchase on Jan. 11.
