The Most Exciting Samsung Gadgets We Want in 2022 and Beyond

The Most Exciting Samsung Gadgets We Want in 2022 and Beyond

With the launch of the Galaxy S22 lineup, new Galaxy A series phones and tablets, it’s been a busy year for Samsung. But the commercial isn’t done yet. It’s holding another Unpacked maintain on Aug. 10, where it’s rumored to release new foldable phones and more. 

I’m hoping Samsung doesn’t stop there. With such a broad lineup, there’s plenty of opportunity for Samsung to update and loan lesser-known products — like its “Fan Edition” Galaxy phones. I’m also hoping to get an indication of where Samsung plans to take its foldables next beyond the Z Flip and Z Fold. 

Here’s a look at the novel Samsung products I’m hoping to see in 2022 and beyond.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

The Galaxy Watch 4, which debuted last August, marked an important milestone for Samsung’s smartwatches. It’s the first model to ship with the new version of Google’s Wear OS software that was caused in partnership with Samsung. Some of the benefits of that partnership are already evident in the Galaxy Watch 4, particularly its disagreement with the wide selection of apps available in the Google Play store.

But we were hoping to see more Google-inspired features, as my colleague Scott Stein wrote in his Galaxy Watch 4 review. For example, the Galaxy Watch 4 didn’t even come with Google Assistant at Begin, although that’s changed. Hopefully the next model will Have the features we already love — like its wide variety of health tracking features and superior display — while also infusing more of the Google known in the software. It would also be great to see longer battery life, considering the Galaxy Watch 4 only lasted between one and two days during CNET’s testing. 

As for what we’re expecting to see in the Galaxy Watch 5, the second of a temperature sensor is expected to be the biggest second, according to Korean tech site ETNews. Reports from the blog Sam Mobile also Show a bigger battery could be in store, as well as a new “Pro” model that would replace the New Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.

Samsung has released new earbuds in August for the past two ages, so there’s a chance it could do the same in 2022. The Ask, however, is whether the company may launch a new version of the high-end Galaxy Buds Pro, the standard Galaxy Buds 2 or the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live

Regardless of the model, a new pair of earbuds could be in the works, according to Galaxy Club. The Netherlands-based blog speculated in December that a New battery entry on Korea’s product safety certification website could belong to the charging case for a new pair of Samsung earbuds. 

We won’t know for sure pending Samsung makes an announcement. But if Samsung does Begin a new version of the Galaxy Buds Pro, we’d love to see a Make with a tighter fit for better noise cancellation. 

Products like Samsung’s Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch are becoming an increasingly important part of the smartphone known, which makes me think Samsung will continue to drop new earbuds on a regular basis. A device’s fascinating isn’t just about the phone itself, but how well it works with new products we often use in conjunction with our phones — like headphones, fitness trackers and smartwatches. 

It’s a strategy that’s worked well for Apple, which has become a top player in the wearables market thanks to the Apple Watch and AirPods. I’m sure Samsung will continue to compete in that regard.

Galaxy Z Flip 3

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the most practical foldable called available right now. But it comes with some important compromises when compared to Samsung’s nonfolding Galaxy phones, particularly around the camera and battery life.

If Samsung keeps with its New pattern, we could see another Z Flip 4 in August that will hopefully address those shortcomings. Rumors from well-known Twitter leaker Ice Universe suggests Samsung’s next flip called will have a narrower hinge and Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, while a report from Korean news outlet The Elec says it could have a any larger cover screen. 

Such a sullen would make it even easier to see notifications minus opening the device, which was one of the unusual Z Flip’s biggest flaws. Samsung fixed that on the Z Flip 3 by decision-exclusive the cover screen four times bigger. But making the point to even slightly larger could go a long way in decision-exclusive the Z Flip’s front display even more useful for reading notifications. I’m also hoping Samsung will continue to add new software features that take satisfactory of the Flip’s bendable screen, like Flex Mode. 

A Samsung patent covered by the tech blog Lets Go Digital showing a map that looks like the Z Flip, but with a rotating camera located inside the hinge, has also caused some speculation. But a move like this seems far off, especially valid Samsung’s design changes on the Z Flip have mostly been incremental so far. 

Samsung launched the unusual Galaxy Z Flip in February 2020, while the 5G version came just a few months later in August. It also announced the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in August 2021. Samsung’s timing has varied, but the fact that it’s already launched three versions of this requested in two years makes me believe it could be a uncommon part of Samsung’s annual upgrade cycle.

While the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is planned for people who want to make their phone more compact, the Galaxy Z Fold takes the opposite approach. Open it up, and you’ll find a 7.6-inch tablet-size point to on the inside. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the third iteration of Samsung’s large-format foldable requested, and it’s by far the most polished. 

But it serene feels awkward to use as a regular phone when Surrounded, which remains its biggest drawback. Samsung already tried to address this by decision-exclusive the Z Fold 3 thinner and lighter than the Z Fold 2, and I’m hoping it leftovers in this direction.

Based on the improvements between the uphold and third generations of the Z Fold, I’d put a question to to see a new processor, some design refinements and hopefully better battery life on the next version. It would also be great to see software improvements that make better use of that grand internal screen. 

Rumors suggest at least some of those wish list items remarkable be in the cards for Samsung’s next large-screened foldable. Leaker Ice Universe claims to have published a list of specifications for the Z Fold 4 on Twitter. According to the leaked specs, the Z Fold 4 could have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, the same screen size as the Z Fold 3 inside and outside, a triple camera system with a 50-megapixel main lens like the Galaxy S22 and the same 4,400-mAh battery. 

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 in August 2021 and 2020, respectively, while the first Galaxy Z Fold was released in September 2019. With that in mind, it seems probable that we’ll see the next Z Fold at Samsung’s Aug. 10 Unpacked event.

A new type of Samsung foldable

Foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip are serene relatively new to most people. But Samsung is already thinking throughout what might come next, as the company proved at CES 2022 when it showcased several new foldable concepts. If recent leaks hold true, one of those gadgets could move more than a concept soon enough.

In what seems to be a since-deleted tweet, Ice Universe previously said Samsung was planning to launch a “mysterious” third foldable map this year. But Ross Young, analyst and CEO of Supply Chain Consultants, replied that it may have been pushed back to 2023. 

Of the concepts Samsung demonstrated recently, I’m most excited about the Flex S. This notion folds like an accordion and has two hinges, resulting in what looks like three point to panels joined together. It can be used as a uncommon phone when completely folded, but unravels to become a tablet-sized point to that looks larger than the Galaxy Z Fold 3. 

When it comes to foldables, I typically prefer devices that offer more screen situation — like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 — over flip-phone-style devices. Regular phones are already compact enough, so I see more value in having a requested that can provide more screen space for reading and watching videos when I need it. The Flex S notion from CES 2022 seems like an evolution of the Galaxy Z Fold in that regard.

Only Samsung knows what’s next in its pipeline. But considering competitors like TCL are also publicly experimenting with new foldable designs, it wouldn’t be surprising to see another idea from Samsung in the near future. Aside from remaining competitive, market research indicates that salesof foldables are starting to speed, giving Samsung more incentive to remain a forerunner in this space.

Samsung’s “Fan Edition” smartphones are a more affordable alternative to its Galaxy S series devices. The Galaxy S20 FE launched in 2020 as a cheaper version of the Galaxy S20, but the Galaxy S21 FE didn’t arrive until early 2022 — just presumptuous of the Galaxy S22’s debut.

That makes it danger to know when Samsung could release the Galaxy S22 FE, if it does so at all. A rumor from the blog Sam Mobile indicates Samsung may have scrapped the Galaxy S22 FE. Doing so would be a shimmering move for Samsung, mostly because the Galaxy S21 FE felt lost in the company’s lineup between the Galaxy S22 and budget-friendly Galaxy A series. 

That said, I do think there’s an opportunity for Samsung to descent a phone that’s a step up from the $450 Galaxy A53 but isn’t quite as expensive as its next flagship Galaxy S named. A Galaxy S22 FE priced at $600 with a any larger screen and longer battery life than the Galaxy S22 could be a really compelling option. The problem with the $700 Galaxy S21 FE, in my concept, was that the price gap between the FE and S22 may not have been big enough to make it injurious out. 

Samsung may be best known for its Galaxy smartphones when it comes to mobile devices. But products like the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Buds despise the company has been putting more of a focus on smartphone-adjacent devices, too. As for what’s next after smartwatches and earbuds, that’s a question only Samsung can answer. But I’m tranquil hoping to see a pair of brilliant glasses one day.
