Samsung Galaxy S22 is about to arrive. Now, some smartphone critics claimed that this new device could take iPhone 13’s spotlight. Here are some reasons.
Samsung Galaxy S22 is about to arrive. As of the moment, the giant Apple competitor still hasn’t confirmed its new smartphone’s exact arrival date. However, various rumors and speculations are already claiming that the new Galaxy S22 lineup could be released this coming January 2022. However, some leakers also stated that the giant smartphone maker could release it before 2021 ends.
Since the launch date of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 is still unconfirmed, some tech experts and critics are now sharing their opinions about the upcoming smartphone lineup that would go toe-to-toe against next-generation iPhone models. These include iPhone 13 and iPhone 14.
Specifically, these critics claim that the new Samsung Galaxy S22 could outshine the upcoming iPhone 13. However, they did not share if this is also their belief when it comes to the upcoming iPhone 14. If you are wondering why various tech experts are saying these things, here are some of their reasons why they believe that the new Galaxy S22 could overtake Apple’s new smartphone model.
iPhone 13 Could Lose Against Galaxy S22?
Fast Charging Feature
One of the most important features that smartphone users are looking for is a faster charging capability. Some rumors claimed that iPhone 13 could be lacking this function. Meanwhile, they explained that the new Samsung Galaxy S22 could offer 45W charging speeds or even 65W. The latter would match the OnePlus 9 Pro, which got to 99% in just 30 minutes, making it the fastest charging phone out there.
If you are going to compare the new Samsung smartphone with its predecessors, the new Galaxy S22 would be faster compared to S21 since it only has 25W charging speeds.
Advanced Camera Sensors
The new Samsung Galaxy S22 could offer continuous optical zoom, as opposed to two separate telephoto lenses at 3x and 10x. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 Pro series is tipped to possibly offer a folding zoom lens, as well as improved computational photography features like portrait mode video and an astrophotography mode.
Efficient In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor
It looks like the iPhone 13 will stick with Face ID for this generation and not include an in-screen fingerprint sensor like the Galaxy S21 series and presumably the Samsung Galaxy S22. And that’s a bummer because a Face ID doesn’t work when wearing a face mask unless you’re wearing an Apple Watch and using iOS 14.5 or newer.
AMD’s Advanced Gaming SoC
As of the moment, Apple’s next-gen handset models are expected to rely on its in-house SoC called Bionic models. Meanwhile, the new Galaxy S22 could take advantage of the upcoming Exynos mobile chip that has AMD’s RDNA2 graphics architecture. Why? Because Apple’s competitor decided to partner with AMD since it still doesn’t have its own chipset for its mobile devices. The Exynos 2200 chip with AMD muscle is expected to power laptops and tablets later this year, but it could also find its way to phones like the Galaxy S22 early next year.
