Samsung’s 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 will reportedly make up more than half the series’ production
Samsung’s Galaxy S22 lineup is expected to arrive sometime in Q1 of 2022. A new report from The Elec claims that Samsung is aiming for the standard Galaxy S22 model with a 6.1-inch display to account for 50% to 60% of overall shipments for the series. The 6.6-inch Galaxy S22+ model is aimed to make up 20% while the S22 Ultra is targeted to hit 20% to 30% of total shipments.
The Elec‘s sources also confirm that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will indeed be able to house an S Pen and it claims that “It is highly likely that the Galaxy Note series won’t launch in 2022.” We’ve already seen renders of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and they corroborate with rumors and leaks that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will indeed have the S Pen built-in. Should these reports (1,2) be accurate, an S Pen-integrated Galaxy S22 Ultra would mean there is no need for Samsung to release a proper Note lineup.
Samsung is targeting 20 million units of production prior to launch, which The Elec notes is a conservative number. Samsung originally targeted to ship 26 million Galaxy S21 units but this was increased to 30 million units around launch time. This could be due to the component shortage.
