Sweet tech leaks, please stop this one! There has been a lot of speculation over what Samsung is doing with the Samsung Galaxy S22, and Samsung Galaxy S21FE smartphones. Now, a more direct leak has revealed the dates you will be able see the devices in person. You can also preorder the device that suits your preferences.
Jon Prosser is a well-known tipter. He claims that the Galaxy S22 handsets will be revealed on February 8, 2022. Preorders will open on the same day. General availability and shipping are set for February 18, 2022.
Prosser said that the cheaper Samsung Galaxy S21 FE phone will be available for purchase on January 4, 2022. This phone will not be available for pre-order, however the date of on-sale is January 11, 2022.

The big Unpacked reveal is coming twice
Despite not having a perfect track record, Prosser remains a reliable source. These launch windows for January and February match up with other rumors about these smartphones. The Galaxy S21 FE appears to be unveiled at CES 2022.
It seems that the delay in revealing the Galaxy S21 FE has pushed S22 from its January slot to later this year. We will have to wait to see how this affects the demand for Samsung’s next flagship series.
Prosser has had a busy few weeks. The same source just posted leaked images from the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. These images show the most expensive handset in S22’s range, both front and back. We should be able get our hands on these phones when February rolls around. It’s interesting that Moore is known for being more realistic about the current state of self-driving car technology than his former boss Elon Musk.
More than 11,700 Tesla cars were recalled earlier this week due to issues with the Full Self-Driving beta software. There have been many issues, including unexpected braking.
This shows that even experts in the field struggle to get self-driving technology to work properly without human supervision.
Analysis: Samsung has plenty of time
All the talk about delays to the Galaxy S21 FE and subsequent rescheduling for the Galaxy S22 Launch might give the impression Samsung’s 2022 plans are in chaos. But these new dates won’t be a total disaster for Samsung, even if they’re not what originally planned.
We will see many new smartphones at the start of 2022, most likely including handsets from Motorola and Xiaomi, but the S21 FE/S22 will still have plenty time to draw attention and establish themselves.
It is unlikely that the OnePlus 10 will break cover before March, but we’ll be able to see the iPhone 14 or Google Pixel 7 in September and October respectively (assuming they match their launch dates).
We should not forget that Samsung holds a second launch event in August every year. This year, we saw the Galaxy Z fold 3 as well as the Galaxy Z flip 3 debut their products. It’s perfectly acceptable to have a six-month gap between February and August. This is in line with the Samsung Galaxy S series’ tradition of launching the Galaxy S21.
