The Samsung Galaxy S22 is, for the time being, still a smartphone that’s only talked about speculatively but we’re slowly getting there: there are rumors floating about online that might steer us in the right direction regarding what we can expect for this future Samsung flagship.

Most of the rumors so far have focused on the device’s cameras, more specifically, that Samsung has developed a camera alongside Olympus. On the other hand, other rumors have hinted at a Snapdragon 895 and an under-display camera.

There’s also word that the company’s supply chain partners are preparing the necessary bits and bobs for Samsung to develop a vapor chamber for the Galaxy S22. This is not surprising and falls in line with other speculations regarding the smartphone’s design: we might see a slimmer and lighter device on our hands, which means that proper cooling solutions would be necessary in order to keep the smartphone going.

While the smartphone’s processor limitation is bound to reduce the overall temperature, the flip side implies that the device may not perform optimally from a performance standpoint.

Device overheating is a serious operational challenge for smartphone manufacturers and it is critical for a company to develop solutions that will keep its flagship devices at the top.
With a more efficient cooling mechanism, the smartphone’s chipset will operate in optimum conditions even during gaming sessions or other processor-intensive applications.

Samsung is not a stranger to vapor chamber cooling solutions – the company has implemented the technology in a few of its devices already, though almost all of them were in the Ultra category.

But that is not all, according to leakster Ice Universe, the company is also working on faster charging speeds for the S22, with options like 25W, 45W and 65W on the table. This, if true, would be really good news for Samsung fans: the company has not, so far, kept up with the likes of Huawei or OnePlus in terms of what fast charging has to offer and has rarely ever offered faster speeds than 25W, even on its most recent devices.

We can remember the Galaxy Note 10 Plus and the Galaxy S20 Ultra as two of the devices that offered 45W charging speeds. However, it’s worth mentioning that those two models were the most expensive in their respective series.
We’ll have to wait and see what Samsung has in store for us, or at least wait on some more reliable leaks for us to form an opinion.

The device is expected to launch in January or February of 2022, so the wait will be long. But that usually means a slew of leaks are coming our way and, as always, we’ll tell you all about it.
