Samsung Galaxy S22 rumors and leaks

The rumor mill speculates the Samsung Galaxy S22 is going to have a 50 megapixel sensor. Apple has focused on image stabilization and color quality. At present the studio has a 3840×2160 LCD which is still well above the mainstream.

  • 1080p – 1920 x 1080 (2 megapixels)
  • 4K – 3840 x 2160 (8.2 megapixels)
  • 8K – 7680 x 4320 (33 megapixels)
  • 16K – 15,360 x 8640 (132 megapixels)

3840×2160 is 8 megapixels, 7680×4320 is 33 megapixels. 50 megapixels is above the 8K LCD panels. 16K panels are very expensive at present and that resolution is far from even professional standards. Innolux has the only known 16K panel.

SSD storage for mobile devices is now very low cost suggesting that ultra high capacity models will be coming to market in the 4Q21 and into 2022. It remains to be seen what Apple will offer with the September launch of the next iPhone.
