The standard Galaxy S22 model is expected to account for more than half of the entire line’s production
Overall Samsung is expected to produce 20 million Galaxy S22 series handsets overall, a 33% decline from the 30 million Galaxy S21 series handsets it produced this year. If that number holds true, we can estimate that 10 to 12 million Galaxy S22 units will be built, along with 4 million Galaxy S22+ handsets, and 4 million to 6 million units of the Galaxy S 22 Ultra.
Samsung expects to build 20 million Galaxy S22 series handsets for 2022
Perhaps the reason that Samsung is being so conservative about the Galaxy S22 line is due to the poor performance of the Galaxy S21. Back in August, analysts at Kiwoom Securities estimated that during the first six months following the release of the Galaxy S21 series, a combined 13.5 million units of the phones shipped making it one of the worst-selling Galaxy S models ever.
Both chipsets used on the Galaxy S22 line will be manufactured using the 4nm process node by Samsung Foundry
Another reason why Samsung is being conservative with its production is because of the pandemic’s impact on manufacturing and on obtaining parts, especially chipsets. There has been a global chip shortage. However, both chipsets that Samsung will probably employ on the Galaxy S22 line, the Exynos 2200 and the Snapdragon 898 SoC, will be manufactured by Samsung Foundry using the 4nm process node.
The report also states that consumers should not expect Samsung to revise the Galaxy Note series next year.
