Samsung Galaxy S22 series tipped to debut on February 8
Samsung will launch its flagship S22 series of smartphones via a virtual "Galaxy Unpacked 2022" event on February 8, according to DDaily, a South Korean publication. The report also claims the S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra will be up for pre-orders from February 9 onward. The handsets will be shipped starting February 21 and will arrive in stores from February 24.
Why does this story matter?
- Samsung has seemingly delayed the launch of the Galaxy S22 line-up due to the Galaxy S21 FE and now that it has been launched, the road is clear for the flagship models.
