The Samsung Galaxy S21 came out less than a year ago and, although its successor isn’t due until 2022, speculation is ramping up for the Galaxy S22. The latest rumor about Samsung’s new flagship says that the Galaxy S22 could have faster charging time than the Galaxy S21. Leaker FrontTron on Twitter said that 65W charging support is in the testing phase for Rainbow RGB, a rumored codename for the S22 series. New foldable phones are also on their way soon; you can check out more about Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event on Aug. 11 here.

Although the exact launch date for the Galaxy S22 is still unclear, Pulse New Korea speculates that the new phone lineup could be arriving in January. The Galaxy S21 was revealed in January 2021, a change from the phone maker’s previous timeline for the Galaxy S Series, which usually gets unveiled in February.

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series features three phones, the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. (Here are the CNET Galaxy S21 review and Galaxy S21 Ultra review.) The Galaxy S22 series is rumored to mirror the three-phone lineup with a standard, Plus and Ultra model, if leaks around the phones’ screen sizes are to be believed.

Cost: Galaxy S22 and S21 should have a similar price point
We haven’t heard any credible rumors yet about the price of the upcoming Galaxy S22 lineup, but we anticipate that Samsung may keep prices fairly consistent from last year’s flagship. The South Korean electronics giant slashed the price of its Galaxy S21 handset by $200 compared with the previous year’s flagship, the Galaxy S20, and we’d be surprised if Samsung were to dramatically increase the price this year. The Galaxy S21 ranges in price from $799 to $1,379 depending on the model.

Here’s the Galaxy S21’s US pricing, for reference. GALAXY S21 US PRICING

128 GB 256 GB 512 GB
Galaxy S21 $799 $849 N/A
Galaxy S21 Plus $999 $1,049 N/A
Galaxy S21 Ultra $1,199 $1,249 $1,379
Design: Galaxy S22 will be thinner than the S21, with a smaller display
The Galaxy S22 lineup could be slightly smaller and thinner than the S21, according to leaker Mauri QHD. The Galaxy S22 is speculated to come in three sizes: 6.06, 6.55 and 6.81 inches. In comparison, the standard Galaxy S21 is 6.2 inches, the S21 Plus is 6.7 inches and the S21 Ultra is 6.8 inches.

Mauri QHD also theorizes the thinner design may result in a smaller battery for the Galaxy S22. The Galaxy S21 houses a 4,000- to 4,500-mAh battery. The anticipated shrinkage of the Galaxy S22 is abnormal when looking at Samsung’s previous phone models. The South Korean electronics giant’s S series has been steadily growing in size over time from the Galaxy S10 (149.9 x 70.4 x 7.8mm) to the Galaxy S20 (151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9mm) and then Galaxy S21 (151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm).
