Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra's deliveries may extend by three months
Samsung is all set to launch its latest Galaxy S22 series of flagship smartphones globally on February 9. Now, Korean tipster Dohyun Kim has claimed that the company is expecting higher demand for its top-end S22 Ultra model as compared to its production yield. If the demand and supply chain disrupts, then Samsung may take about three months to deliver the handset.
Why does this story matter?
- Samsung's upcoming S22 Ultra will bring elements of both the S series and Note series, along with top-tier hardware and new productivity features.
- It will attract not just the fans of Note series but also those looking for a power-packed premium smartphone.
- However, like the Galaxy Z Fold3, the S22 Ultra may face delayed deliveries due to the ongoing chip shortage.
The handset will flaunt a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a punch-hole design with slim bezels, curved edges, an IP68-rated build quality, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The handset will bear a 6.8-inch QHD+ (1440x3200 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It will also have a dedicated slot for housing the S Pen.
It will boast a 108MP main camera

For selfies and video calling, it will have a 40MP (f/2.2) front-facing camera.
It will offer 15W wireless fast-charging support
