The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 base model is said to account for half of the total production.

Sources told TheElec that the 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 will account for 50% to 60% of the shipment goal for the series. The 6.6-inch Galaxy S22+ and 6.8-inch Galaxy S22 Ultra are believed to account for 20% and 20% to 30% of the shipment goal respectively. Overall, Samsung is said to be aiming to build 20 million units of the Galaxy S22 series for launch.

TheElec claims this is the first time Samsung has decided that one model will account for over half of the production and shipment goal. For the Galaxy S20 series, the base model accounted for 40% while the Plus model accounted for 40% to 45% and the Ultra model accounting for 10% to 15%. 

The Korean publication also says the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a slot for the S Pen, which is a first for the Galaxy S series. It added that Samsung is unlikely to launch a new Galaxy Note model in 2022. A sketchy rumour last month suggests that the Galaxy S22 could be announced before the end of the year, but TheElec expects a launch in Q1 2022. Purported specs of the Galaxy S22 models have also been revealed.
