This is new and interesting, as Samsung has traditionally released its high-end Galaxy S and even the now-defunct Galaxy Note phones using the company’s most advanced Exynos processor. Many in India have wished for Snapdragon-powered flagship Samsung smartphones, and this news may appeal to them.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy S22 series have also been launched in India, allowing customers to get their hands on the phones as soon as they are released in the country. They will also receive a free Samsung SmartTag worth Rs 2,699 from Samsung.
However, we do not yet know the pricing of the Galaxy S22 series in India, nor do we know when it will be released. We expect these specifics to be released next week, so stay tuned for further information.
Features and Specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series
As previously stated, the Galaxy S22 is available in three models, each of which has a 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED QHD+ display, Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC variations, better cameras, Android 12 with One UI 4.1, and more.
While the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are design-wise comparable to the Galaxy S21 phones, the Galaxy S22 Ultra leans more toward the Galaxy Note design ethos, making it a hybrid of the Galaxy S and Note lines. It also includes a built-in S Pen.
The Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra both support 45W fast charging, although the standard model only supports 25W. As part of Samsung’s commitment to a sustainable environment, all three models are partially comprised of repurposed fishing nets.
