Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Unpacked event date just leaked

The Galaxy S22 series is the main draw in the Android ecosystem at the start of 2022. It’s the phone a special kind of Samsung fan has been waiting for: the Galaxy Note user. That’s because the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the first Galaxy S model to rock with a built-in S Pen and Note design. It could also have the Note mark, given the important note that follows. Unlike last year, Samsung had no plans to unveil the Galaxy S22 series around its CES event. But Unpacked 2022 is coming soon, and a report claims that Samsung has already set the date for the Galaxy S22 Unpacked event.

YouTuber Jon Prosser said in early November that Samsung would host its Galaxy S22 Unpacked event on February 8. The phones will be supposed to be pre-ordered the same day and hit stores on February 18. Then, about a month later, the leak manager revised those dates.

The Galaxy S22 Unpacked launch date has not been changed. But Prosser said a few weeks ago that Samsung moved the Galaxy S22’s pre-order date to February 9 instead of 8. More important is the delay in the release date. The phone will now arrive in stores on February 25, Prosser said.

“Sources cite a fairly significant supply chain problem,” he added, without revealing any further details. Again, the entire mobile industry has been grappling with supply chain and logistics challenges for over a year now. Things do not seek better today.

The date of the Galaxy S22 Unpacked launch event

That brings us to a new report out of Korea which states that Samsung has in fact set an Unpacked 2022 launch date for the Galaxy S22 series. Through the Daily digital, Samsung has reportedly confirmed the launch schedule for the next flagship products.

The report claims that an anonymous Samsung Electronics official said the company has confirmed that the event will take place on February 8. The company is discussing when to send out the media invitations. This will likely happen at some point in late January. The invitation date doesn’t really matter, as the Galaxy S22 Unpacked launch will be virtual.

Daily digital Also states that pre-orders for the Galaxy S22 will begin on February 9. The Galaxy S22 release date is apparently February 24, while buyers ordering early could get the handset starting February 21.

These dates are in line with Prosser’s leaks, specifically the date of the Galaxy S22 Unpacked event. As for the pre-order and release dates above, it’s unclear whether they refer to international markets or just South Korea.
