We’re nonetheless ready for the total particulars of Samsung’s subsequent Unpacked occasion, which is able to happen subsequent month. However there’s excellent news for anybody who’s been lacking the corporate’s Galaxy Be aware: Samsung simply teased its return, although it is going to be a special system than what you may anticipate.

“At Unpacked in February 2022, we’ll introduce you to probably the most noteworthy S collection system we’ve ever created,” Samsung President Dr. TM Roh, head of the corporate’s MX Enterprise, wrote in a Thursday weblog submit. “The subsequent era of Galaxy S is right here, bringing collectively the best experiences of our Samsung Galaxy into one final system.”

Samsung launched the Galaxy Be aware in 2011 to nice fanfare. The 5.3-inch show was one of many largest screens you can get on the time. And whilst flagship telephones grew in display measurement, the Be aware morphed into probably the most premium system of Samsung’s smartphone lineup, with the corporate reserving its most premium specs and options for the Be aware. (Allow us to not neglect the exploding batteries, too.)

Now, Samsung is passing the baton to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Extremely, which Roh talked about on the finish of his Unpacked teaser: “Prepare for the final word Extremely expertise.”

It’s been rumored that Samsung would substitute the Extremely model of its Galaxy S lineup with a Be aware-like system—full with a slot for the S Pen. You should buy the Samsung Galaxy S21 Extremely now and get that type of S Pen performance, however there’s no docking spot for the stylus with out investing in a clunky case.

However the S Pen isn’t the one a part of the Be aware that individuals preferred. It usually had the very best cameras of any Samsung cellphone, plus a beefy processor and loads of area for paperwork and photographs. The Be aware was positioned as a cellphone for energy customers. It is smart that the Galaxy S22 Extremely (which is what we anticipate it to be referred to as) would take its place, the place Samsung can consolidate its provide chain whereas additionally attractive you to pay slightly bit further for higher {hardware}.

Samsung supplied a couple of hints at a few of the options to anticipate from the Extremely. There’s a point out of proudly owning “the night time” to take “the very best and brightest photographs,” which appears to counsel a bigger picture sensor for capturing mild. There’s a promise you’ll “dominate the day with energy,” which feels like there’s a giant battery stuffed inside. This can even be the “smartest” Galaxy expertise, which makes me consider it has one thing to do with Matter—possibly one thing akin to Samsung’s lately introduced House Hub.

All of this syncs up with what’s leaked concerning the Galaxy S22 Extremely. Leaks point out that the Extremely will sport an fascinating digital camera array consisting of a 108MP wide-angle main digital camera, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 10MP telephoto lens with 10x zoom, and a second 10MP telephoto lens with 3X zoom. Different unconfirmed specs embrace a 6.8-inch AMOLED show with a 120Hz refresh fee, as much as 16GB of RAM, and not less than 512GB of storage. And it’s prone to be powered by the brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip.

Samsung is opening reservations on Jan. 21 for regardless of the new Be aware-like Extremely shall be earlier than asserting any further particulars. Should you’re feeling courageous, you too can reserve Samsung’s subsequent pill. Each shall be out there to order on Samsung’s web site beginning tomorrow.
