The Samsung Galaxy S22 could finally giving us another small flagship

Samsung could be going "mini" with the Galaxy S22.

What you need to know

  • Samsung is tipped to launch the Galaxy S22 with a smaller display than previous-generation flagships.
  • The Galaxy S22 could feature a 6.06-inch display, which is smaller than the Galaxy S10.
  • Samsung is also rumored to decrease the battery capacity of its next flagship.

With Samsung's new foldables out and in consumers' hands, the focus has started to shift on what the company could release next. The latest rumor points to an interesting design choice for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22, which could please many users depending on their tastes.

According to Ice Universe, Samsung's next flagship could launch with a 6.06-inch display. For comparison, that's smaller than the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S20, which both feature 6.2-inch displays, and even a hair smaller than the Galaxy S10 display which measures in at 6.1-inches. In fact, the S22 display size would fall between the S9 and S10.

If this turns out to be the case, it would match up with rumors that Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy S22 with a smaller battery than its predecessor. It could also suggest that Samsung is slowly starting to revert to smaller display sizes, which Apple and ASUS have done with their recent releases.

That said, given the smaller battery, this could also be Samsung's way of leveling out the power consumption, especially given that it's likely to be powered by a more efficient Snapdragon 895.

It's unclear at the moment how this might affect other models like the Galaxy S22+ or S22 Ultra, but the smaller size could potentially widen the gap between the standard and Plus models, which have mainly only differed in size in recent years.

Nonetheless, it would be a curious move for Samsung, which popularized large-screen smartphones with some of its best Android phones like the Galaxy Note series. However, it could prove to be a good move for people who prefer smaller smartphones, as Ice Universe points out that the body of the device would be smaller than even the new iPhone 13.

Would you mind a smaller flagship from Samsung? Or would this entice you to consider a Plus/Ultra variant?

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
