Samsung has reportedly started mass producing the Galaxy S22 series

Samsung is also said to be pushing down the prices of the phones.

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Galaxy S22 series has reportedly entered mass production.
  • Production for key internal parts of the phone apparently started in late October at Samsung's factories in Asia.
  • Samsung is likely launching the upcoming flagship phone early next year.

Samsung has reportedly kicked off mass production for the Galaxy S22 series in preparation for its upcoming launch early next year, corroborating previous rumors suggesting that the phone will debut in January (or February).

According to WinFuture, Samsung began mass producing the flex cables that connect the phone's circuit boards in the middle of last week. In addition, the company is said to have increased production at its Asian factories to tens of thousands of units.

The report also noted some issues with achieving that production rate, although these were nothing out of the ordinary. Production for all variants of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ is said to be in full swing while the Galaxy S22 Ultra's production appears to be focused on the U.S. variant.

While there have been conflicting rumors about the possible unveiling of the Galaxy S22 series, the general consensus is that the phone will most likely be available in early 2022. The start of mass production three months before the phone's expected debut is also consistent with Samsung's recent timeline.

The latest rumor should provide some reassurance to Samsung fans that the Galaxy S22 is still on track, despite the global chip shortage that has impacted many OEMs other than Samsung. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, for example, has been discontinued in India, possibly due to the same component scarcity.

Samsung is also expected to lower the prices of the Galaxy S22 series, especially since its debut is expected to follow the announcement of the Galaxy S21 FE. Here's hoping that the upcoming flagship device will be available in sufficient quantities unlike the other best Android phones released this year such as the Google Pixel 6 Pro.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

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
