Galaxy S22 series will reportedly have "Gorilla Glass Victus +", according to leaker
Recently, there have been many leaks about the upcoming Galaxy S22 series, and reputable leaker Ice Universe has been responsible for a big part of the info we have so far on the three premium phones from Samsung. Last month, we reported on the leak that all three models might be with glass backs this time. Now, the leaker has something to add.

Now, onto the story.

All three Galaxy S22 models will reportedly have 'Gorilla Glass Victus +' backs


Right now, Corning has released the strong Gorilla Glass Victus with has brought more toughness and durability to the Galaxy S21 Ultra (last year, as many of you know, the Galaxy S21 and S21+ did not have glass backs, but "glasstic"). So far, we are uncertain what the "+" in the tipster's tweet means, and if it is referring to a next-gen Corning Gorilla Glass Victus or not.


If it is indeed a next-generation Gorilla Glass Victus, it would basically mean the phones' glass will be even more durable and protective. We doubt this would mean you can just walk around, leave your case at home, drop your new Galaxy S22 Ultra here and there and expect it to look the same when you get home... jokes aside, nothing is official at this point, not even the launch date of the three phones (which is reported to be at the beginning of next month).

Galaxy S22 series coming soon: what to expect


So far, almost everything about the upcoming phones has been leaked by tipsters and leakers, and the picture is getting more and more detailed even before Samsung has anything to say about the upcoming Galaxy S22 Unpacked event.

Let's recap what we know so far: the Galaxy S22 series will come powered by the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor (and probably in most markets this time, according to the latest reports), the three phones are shaping to be a bit more expensive than their predecessors, and of course, all three will come with top-notch camera specs.

In terms of prices, leaks have detailed you will most likely have to pay some $100 more for each model (in comparison to their predecessors, the Galaxy S21 lineup). Here are the expected prices of the S22 line so far:

  • S22 - $899
  • S22 Plus - $1099
  • S22 Ultra - $1299

As we all know by now, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to come with a dedicated S Pen slot. The phone should boast a 6.8-inch display with the now-standard 120Hz refresh rate. On the back, the S22 Ultra is expected to come with a quad-camera system sporting a 108MP main sensor. It will reportedly be an improved ISOCELL HM3 sensor.

Complementing the main sensor will be a 12MP ultra-wide cam, a 10MP 10x periscope zoom module, and a 10MP 3x telephoto lens.

For the vanilla S22, we expect a 6.06-inch screen, while the S22 Plus will reportedly have a 6.55-inch display panel. Additionally, both phones are most likely going to come with triple cameras with a 50MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a 10MP 3x telephoto.

In terms of battery sizes, no big change is expected, although, a slight decrease of the batteries of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ might be on the table.

The Galaxy S22 battery is rumored to be a smaller 3700mAh unit compared to the 4000mAh battery on the Galaxy S21. The Galaxy S22+ is rumored to sport a smaller 4500mAh battery compared to the 4800mAh component on the Galaxy S21+. The only one of the three models not losing any battery capacity this year is expected to be the Galaxy S22 Ultra with its 5000mAh battery.

The three phones (according to the most recent leaks) will be announced on February 8. When we know more, we'll make sure to inform you, so stay tuned!
