Samsung has started producing all parts of Galaxy S22
The chip shortage has affected the plans of several companies, and Samsung is not immune to those effects. Possibly to avoid unnecessary launch delays, a new report claims that South Korean giant Samsung has begun mass production of components for its upcoming Galaxy S22 series.
Mass production has not been smooth, but Samsung Electronics has not suffered a major setback so far. Flexible cables that connect various circuit boards inside the Galaxy S22 are coming off the production line, according to a report from WinFuture. The parts for the GalaxyS22, GalaxyS22 Plus, and GalaxyS22 Ultra were produced in the Asian program in the middle of last week. Production has reached tens of thousands, but the report notes that there have been some quality-control problems.
Fortunately, the problem hasn't reached a level that would be devastating to Samsung's mass production process, so we consider these issues to be within the margin of error. The three versions of the GalaxyS22 are known to have parallel components, with the top-of-the-line GalaxyS22 Ultra expected to be sold in large numbers in us and the remaining two versions to be particularly focused in other markets.
According to a previous report, Samsung plans to begin preorders for the Galaxy S22 on February 7, with an official launch a few days later. Judging by the above target dates, it's safe to assume that Samsung is being cautious about its approach, so the latest report discusses mass production plans. The last thing the company needs is a setback that would force it to delay production of all Galaxy S22 models and mean it would be difficult for consumers to get them in time.
Apple is working frantically to improve the iPhone 13's supply chain issues, and for Samsung, this is the perfect opportunity to give customers some valuable Android competitors. All Galaxy S22 models are expected to be released variants of the Snapdragon 895 and Exynos 2200 chipsets, and like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have S-Pen support.
Hopefully, Samsung will add more S-Pen features to its high-end products this time around so that potential users will be less concerned about the difficulties of launching a Galaxy Note in the future, which we know is highly unlikely.
