Leaked Samsung Galaxy S22 camera specs point to very few changes
UPDATE: Additional details have emerged courtesy of tipster Ice Universe (via MyFixGuide). The updated story continues below.

We’re about four months out from the Galaxy S22 announcement. Details about the next-gen devices have been scarce thus far, but a new report seems to be our first relatively detailed leak about the smartphones.

The Galaxy S22 cameras setups won't receive any massive upgrades


Samsung recently locked in the camera specifications for the upcoming Galaxy S22 series, according to sources speaking to The Elec, and it looks like the South Korean brand won’t be making too many changes.

The range-topping Galaxy S22 Ultra is set to include a quad-camera setup on the back. Much like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, a 108-megapixel sensor has been selected as the main camera, while a 12-megapixel shooter will be paired with an ultra-wide lens.

Both of those cameras support optical image stabilization (OIS) as standard, per the report. Separately, leaker Ice Universe corroborates these details and has shared some information about the remaining two cameras.

It's understood that there'll be two additional 12-megapixel sensors on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. One will act as a 3x telephoto zoom camera, while the other will be a 10x periscope snapper, each with OIS too. 

As for the all-important selfie camera, Samsung is once again going with a 40-megapixel sensor. Additionally, because the Galaxy Note is dead, the Galaxy S22 Ultra looks set to retain S Pen stylus support.

The standard Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ models, on the other hand, are expected to feature identical triple-camera setups. Sensor specifications haven’t been revealed, but a 3x telephoto zoom camera is part of the package. There’s also a 10-megapixel selfie camera.

Supply chain sources aren't optimistic about Galaxy S22 sales


It’s believed that Samsung has made virtually no changes to the sizing of its 2022 flagships devices. If that’s true, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ should use 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch displays respectively, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra is likely to feature a 6.8-inch panel.

Samsung is expected to start mass production for the entire Galaxy S22 series, which is codenamed ‘Rainbow,’ in November ahead of a planned release in January. That timeline mimics the Galaxy S21 development plan.

Sales estimates are yet to be made public, but sources within the supply chain aren’t overly optimistic. That’s because the current Galaxy S21 models are on track to ship less than 30 million units, making it one of the worst-performing lineups ever.
