Samsung released the Galaxy S21 just under six months ago and rumors for the next generation of the Galaxy S family have already started to surface. A source with a good level of credibility released the possible screen sizes for each model, with a reduction in inches for two variants.

  • Samsung Announces World’s Smallest 50 MP Sensor to Reduce Cell Thickness
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 FE leaks again in 8 GB RAM variant
  • Samsung releases security package with critical fixes for several Galaxy

According to the Mauri QHD profile, which has a good history of much anticipated leaks, the Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06-inch display, while the Plus model will have a 6.55-inch display. These are screens smaller in diagonal size than the 6.2 inches and 6.7 inches of the Galaxy S21 and S21+, respectively. The Ultra should maintain the 6.8 inches of the current generation, and would be the only one with an LTPO panel.

The information was passed on by a source Mauri dubbed Hades, and who hit seven of the eight leaks sent to him so far. For security reasons, leaker doesn’t go into further details, not even about what matters this source got right and what was the incorrect information sent by it.

This is one of the first — if not the first — leaks about South Korea’s next-generation high-end. The devices will only be officially announced in January of next year, if Samsung repeats the 2021 lineup.

Higher brightness with less power consumption

Samsung has used the LTPO panel in at least two other high-end phones in the past: the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy S21 Ultra. It is a technology that can consume up to 16% less energy, according to the company itself, and it is an organic material in which electrons move more quickly between the layers of the display.

“In other words, OLED panels can emit stronger light while consuming less energy, which increases battery life,” Samsung explained to The Verge website in January.

It is worth noting that this is a technology that combines with the Dynamic AMOLED of Samsung’s top-of-the-line screen. A screen has several layers and can bring different types of technology to complement each other or perform specific functions.

The LTPO panel is also present in OnePlus 9.
