Something to look forward to: The brief teaser of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy flagship hints that the S and Note series will finally merge, presumably under the S22 lineup. Previous rumors indicated that a new note was missing in action last year. Samsung’s official announcement confirming its Unpacked event for February did not specify a launch date or any other Galaxy products; however, popular leaker Ice Universe expects the company to announce the notched Galaxy S22 series and Galaxy Tab S8 on February 9.
Samsung seems confident that its upcoming Galaxy S22 will set a new standard for smartphones. Such claims are neither new nor surprising, but this year’s iteration of the Galaxy S series is expected to resurrect the Galaxy Note under the rumored S22 Ultra variant. The “rules of the industry” are about to be rewritten, according to Samsung.
Of the society official statement the Unpacked 2022 event announcement also praised the now-defunct Note series for making big screens mainstream and taking notes with a stylus. Of course, it became harder and harder to justify the Note line when Samsung’s own S20/S21 Ultra variants started offering similar capabilities.

Beyond an improved camera experience, Samsung hasn’t shared any specs or variant information for the Galaxy S22, but there have been numerous leaks suggesting we’ll get a trio of models: S22, S22+, and S22. Ultra. Additionally, the notched Galaxy Tab S8 is also set to debut at the Unpacked event.
For die-hard fans looking to reserve a pre-order slot weeks before these devices are revealed, Samsung will begin taking reservations today at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET on its official website.
