According to Ice Universe, the Galaxy S22 could be a little smaller than expected. But not much.
Samsung hit hard this summer by lifting the veil on two new folding smartphones, smartphones that have convinced us by their size and their functions. Now all eyes are on early next year. Date by which the new ones should be presented flagships from the South Korean manufacturer.
In the meantime, rumors are rife and the latest comes from a high-profile leaker: Ice Universe.
A slightly more compact Galaxy S22
Earlier in the week, the latter indeed published a series of tweets devoted to the Galaxy S22.
In these tweets, the leaker tells us in particular that the terminal will be equipped with a battery that does not exceed 3,700 mAh in capacity. And thus a battery a little smaller than that which was present on board the devices of this year.
Why such a difference ? Quite simply because Samsung would have given itself the mission, or the objective, of producing a device that is more compact and therefore easier to handle.
Consumers’ best friend looking for a slim fit?
In its message, Ice Universe indicates that the Galaxy S22 will be both smaller and thinner than the iPhone 13, which will be its direct competitor. Obviously, to get there, Samsung had to make some concessions and this includes the integration of a smaller battery … and lower capacity.
The leakeur does not stop there, however. In a second tweet, he also specifies that the Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06-inch diagonal screen, against 6.1 inches for this year’s model. If the difference does not seem significant, it could still help reduce the overweight of the phone. Even more if Samsung manages to reduce the size of the borders surrounding the panel.
If these tweets are true, then the Galaxy S22 should be a great surprise for anyone looking for a compact, one-handed smartphone. We just have to hope that autonomy will follow.
