The next big Samsung Unpacked event, where we expect the Samsung Galaxy S22 for the first time, is now scheduled for February 2022.
We have yet to know the exact launch date, but a new blog post from TM Roh, president and head of Samsung MX, confirms that the launch will be in February.
Leaks pointed to February 9 as the launch date, and a recent source was even confident in predicting the exact timing of the event on that date at 7am PT/10am ET or 3pm GMT.
Other leaks have said that the Galaxy S22 release date has been set for February 25, but none of these details have been confirmed by Samsung. We will have to wait a little longer until we hear the official date for Samsung Unpacked.
If you live in the US, you can pre-order Samsung’s upcoming phones on Friday, January 21 from 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT with offers including a $50 Samsung credit for other devices. We have yet to hear if this will be an option in other markets.
Roh didn’t mention the Samsung Galaxy S22 in the blog post, but he did refer to the next generation of Galaxy S handsets.
The blog post reads: “At Unpacked in February 2022, we’re introducing you to the most remarkable S-series device we’ve ever made. The next-generation Galaxy S is here, bringing together the best experiences of our Samsung Galaxy into one ultimate device.”
Roh’s comments here, especially the word “remarkable,” seem to suggest that we’ll see a member of the Samsung Galaxy S22 family take over features from the Galaxy Note line of smartphones.
That’s all note
Numerous leaks have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a more Note-like design than its predecessor. That’s expected to have a squarer look than on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and the phone may also have a dedicated slot designed to house the S Pen stylus.
This smartphone is believed to be a spiritual successor to devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. While Roh’s comments don’t explicitly confirm these leaks, it strongly suggests that they are correct.
He says: “We know many of you were surprised when Samsung didn’t release a new Galaxy Note last year. You loved the unparalleled creativity and efficiency of the Galaxy Note series, which allowed you to move from gaming nirvana to high-performance productivity. octane rating in the blink of an eye.
“You raved about the lifelike S Pen, which many believe are rivals that put ink on paper. And we haven’t forgotten these experiences you love so much.”
Again, there’s no explicit confirmation that we’ll see the return of the S Pen stylus on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but the allusion is clear.
Going on, Roh writes: “It will put you in charge of the night – you’ll take the best and clearest photos and videos you’ve ever taken with a phone. You’ll also dominate the day with power, speed and tools that can’t be found elsewhere. to be found.
“You’ll enjoy the very latest innovations made possible by the smartest Galaxy experience yet, all while feeling good as part of the most sustainable Galaxy ecosystem. And yes, you’re helping Samsung redefine the future of smartphones to rewrite.”
There’s a lot of marketing talk in those quotes, but it’s clear that this upcoming launch will be the introduction of a new line of flagship smartphones.
We may also see some other Samsung devices, such as the Galaxy Tab S8, during Unpacked 2022. All that’s left to do now is to wait for Samsung to announce the official date of the February Unpacked event.
