Samsung Unpacked Announced!

Another Samsung product announcement is on the horizon. The South Korean tech giant has revealed that its next Unpacked event will take place on February 9th, during which the Galaxy S22, its latest flagship phone series, will be officially announced. Samsung's Galaxy S handsets are usually the company's highest-specced non-folding phones, and they're usually our first glimpse at the year's main smartphone trends.

However, given Samsung's track record, phones are unlikely to be the only thing introduced on September 9th. According to recent reports, they'll be joined by a new array of Galaxy Tab S8 tablets, which will both supersede the Tab S7 devices that arrived in 2020 and include a new, larger "Ultra" branded tablet. There's even talk of a new smart speaker called the Galaxy Home Mini 2, whose production is said to have just begun.

The New Galaxy S22 Series 

The Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra are likely to be released this year, marking the start of a new year with a fresh lineup of top Samsung Galaxy S smartphones. We also have a pretty decent notion of what their specs will be thanks to a detailed leak from WinFuture. All three will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, in the United States, while devices in Europe will most likely be powered by Samsung's own Exynos 2200 processor, which is notable for being the first smartphone chip with AMD graphics in over a decade, ever since Qualcomm acquired AMD / ATI's Imageon division and renamed it Qualcomm Adreno graphics.

According to reports, all of the upcoming Samsung phones will include ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanners, albeit only the Plus and Ultra will have UWB support for complete compatibility with Samsung's Galaxy SmartTag Plus trackers.

The S22 and S22 Plus appear to be simple revisions of the S21 and S21 Plus, having extremely similar designs to last year's models. That implies both phones should feature the new design language for 2021, which includes camera bumps neatly incorporated into the upper left corner of the phone's back, as well as flat displays with centrally oriented hole-punch notches for their front cameras.

The New Galaxy Tab S8 Series

While Samsung's new Galaxy S smartphones may be its most "notable" to date, the corporation is undoubtedly betting that its new tablet lineup will be a cut above the competition. Its new Tab S8 series has been hotly rumored in recent months, while it hasn't been verified that they'll arrive alongside the Galaxy S22.

Rumors, as well as a photograph on Samsung's own website, imply that the company's next flagship tablet will feature a display notch similar to the one it lambasted Apple for using on the iPhone X. According to WinFuture, the notch is expected to be coming to a new Ultra tier in the Tab S8 lineup, which will sit above the Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus in the company's 2022 Android tablet portfolio.

Despite the fact that all three tablets are said to be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, screen sizes vary, ranging from 11 inches for the Tab S8 to 12.7 inches for the Tab S8 Plus and 14.6 inches for the Tab S8 Ultra. Only the Plus and Ultra have OLED panels, although all three are 120Hz. The Ultra also has a second 12-megapixel selfie camera (thus the notch), though it's unclear what use this extra sensor will serve at this time.
