The Samsung Galaxy S-series phones have been some of the most powerful Android phones made each year and with the success of the S21 series, the brand is only set to get better. With the S22 series, which is rumoured to launch in early February, Samsung is expected to include a new design, more powerful hardware and more camera capabilities.We are also going to see the new Android 12-based One UI 4.0 software in the new flagship phones, along with rumoured S-Pen support on the top-end Galaxy S22 Ultra, which as per some rumours may be called the S22 Note this year, effectively carrying forward the Note series, which has reportedly been discontinued as a standalone phone series now.Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy S21 FE smartphone early in 2022. Succeeding the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, the phone will aim to offer a budget flagship experience to buyers who don’t want to spend too much on the S22 series. The S21 FE is expected to offer some new specifications and a new design compared to its predecessor and will help Samsung compete with rivals like OnePlus and Xiaomi in the sub-Rs 50,000 segment.
OnePlus is expected to launch its new OnePlus 10 series devices in early January 2022. The series is expected to pack the OnePlus 10 as well as the OnePlus 10 Pro. The smartphones are expected to be powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and will likely see a new camera setup on both the front and back along with signature specifications like a QHD screen on the Pro variant.
OnePlus is also set to bring the new Unified OS set to debut with the OnePlus 10 series. Expected to be a rework of Oppo’s ColorOS, the Unified OS is set to blend ColorOS together with OxygenOS and as per CEO Pete Lau, will later be coming to all eligible older phones as well.
