What you need to know
- Real-world cases for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series have leaked.
- The Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a Smart Clear View Cover, while its smaller siblings will be outfitted with leather cases.
- The upcoming phones are expected to be unveiled on February 9.
As the Samsung Galaxy S22 series announcement date inches closer, we continue to see an abundance of leaks and rumors about the upcoming devices. Following a massive leak a few days ago that revealed all of the key specs of Samsung's next-generation Android phones, the devices' real-world cases have now surfaced.
The official-looking cases, courtesy of SamMobile, give us a glimpse of the various designs for the upcoming phones' protective accessories. The leak shows the leather covers for both the vanilla Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, wrapped around what look like dummy handsets in real life.
The Ultra model, on the other hand, appears to be getting a Smart Clear View Cover with a square cutout for the phone's always-on display. This allows access to notifications, time, and other information while the phone is closed, as well as display protection.
The cases also confirm previous leaks about the design of the phones. The Galaxy S22 Ultra's case, in particular, bears a striking resemblance to the design of the Galaxy Note, as we've seen in previous leaks. On the other hand, the base and the Plus models take after their predecessors, at least in terms of the camera array at the back.
While the leaked cases appear to be fairly basic, they give you plenty of time to decide on a design, making the checkout process much easier when the phones become available for purchase.
The Galaxy S22 series is expected to arrive on February 9, as per Samsung's recent teaser. But this early, you can already reserve a spot to pre-order your favorite model ahead of launch and get a $50 store credit towards other Samsung products.

If I drop it from a ballon will it protect it?
Depends, what's a ballon? lol
A french ball, I think?
Only if it had a headphone jack!
Sammobile has ALL the S22 details.
Android is Samsung... Better off following Sammobile
Thanks for telling us how to internet.
Samsung isn't even the biggest brand in Android, that's BBK group. Add Xiaomi in there as well and you see how well over 1/3 of all smartphone sales in the world are made up of these two brands.
Unless they make the s22 ultra same as s21 ultra I'll pass. I cant stand the pointy corners for more reasons 1.
@ezapper2 yes! I came here to say exactly the same thing. While I applaud the inclusion of a silo for the stylus, going back to the Note's rectangular body design is a step backwards, and not in a good way. Phones still need to fit in pockets, and the bigger they are, the more they benefit from rounded corners. Here's hoping the S23 Ultra has rounded corners...
Wait.... the CASE has a camera hump? The main reason I buy a case is I can lay it flat on the table :(
