Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2022: What to expect

We already have a good idea as to what will be announced later today. Most importantly, we expect to see the unveiling of the Galaxy S22 lineup. 

Our guess relies not only on the countless rumors and leaks that we've spotted throughout the past year, but also on Samsung's not-so-subtle hint that was dropped in the Unpacked invite image. As you may have already noticed from the image below, the invitation features a big pink "S" inside a box, which is a pretty clear indication that a new S lineup will be the star of the show.

The Galaxy S22 lineup is expected to bring us three different models: the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra. We're anticipating that the first two handsets will get fairly straightforward upgrades compared to their respective predecessors, such as a refreshed design, improved chips and better camera systems. (Here's a closer Galaxy S22 vs. Galaxy S22 Plus comparison that talks about how the models will differ.)

However, the Galaxy S22 Ultra looks like being a different matter, with a design that harks back to Samsung's Galaxy Note series plus an integrated S Pen. In fact, it's fair to say that we're very excited about some of the Galaxy S22 Ultra's new features.

There's also a good chance that we will see the introduction of the Galaxy Tab S8 series. Again, it's likely that Samsung will announce three tablets in total: the standard, Plus and Ultra models, all of which are expected to get an improved set of specs compared to the S7 lineup. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra could get a display notch, leaving more display room and slimming down the bezels.

There may well be other products announced at Galaxy Unpacked 2022, including, potentially, new wireless earbuds in the Samsung Galaxy Buds range. But it will be well worth tuning in for the S22 range alone, so bookmark this page and make sure you don't miss a second as it happens.
