Galaxy S22 Launch may Postpone: Due to supply chain issues, Samsung may postpone the release of the Galaxy S22 series.
We’ve seen a slew of leaks, renderings, and stories of Samsung’s next-generation flagship Galaxy S22 series before its formal announcement. While Samsung had planned to debut the Galaxy S22 series on February 9, a source now alleges that the Galaxy S22 and S22+ models would be delayed owing to supply chain concerns.
Is the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ being delayed?
Jon Prosser, a reputable tipper, recently shared the news on Twitter. According to Prosser, due to supply chain challenges caused by the continuing Coronavirus-led pandemic, Samsung has experienced a “slight slowdown” with the debut of the Galaxy S22 series. As a result, according to the source, Samsung will have to postpone the release of several Galaxy S22 variants. Take a look at the tweet below.
I’m told that due to supply chain issues, the Galaxy S22 lineup has had a slight setback.

For those who are unaware, Samsung is slated to unveil the Galaxy S22 series next week, which will comprise the normal Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. According to Prosser, pre-orders for all of the models will be available on the day of the launch. However, owing to supply difficulties, the models’ availability has now been separated.
Galaxy S22 Launch may Postpone: According to the source, although the higher-end Galaxy S22 Ultra will be available for purchase on February 25, Samsung may delay the availability of the lower-end Galaxy S22 and S22+ to March 11. When questioned why Samsung is prioritising the Ultra model over the lower-end Galaxy models, Prosser said that it’s “more about scale,” as Samsung need more time to produce a particular number of lower-end Galaxy models for a full-scale release.
It is important to note that Samsung has not yet publicly announced the delay. As a result, we recommend that you wait for the Korean giant to launch the Galaxy S22 range and give facts about its availability. Stay tuned to our website for future information.
