Week 3 in review: Samsung announces Exyno 2200, Galaxy S22 leaks continue





In the third week of 2022, the most popular news articles were related to Samsung. We had a bunch of Galaxy S22-related leaks, but also an official announcement when Samsung unveiled the Exynos 2200 chipset. It will come with an all-new Xclipse GPU co-developed with AMD and power the flagship lineup in select markets.

With all the Galaxy S22s, the Android community is increasingly interested in the upcoming mid-range Galaxy A53 5G as it appears again in our weekly roundup.

From Apple’s side, the most popular article was the iPhone 13’s inability to apply noise cancellation during calls. Apart from that, we also got a bit more information about the upcoming iPhone SE handsets slated for this year and next year. And apparently this year’s non-Pro iPhone 14 models will be missing ProMotion displays.

Oppo Reno6 Lite and vivo Y55 5G have made their official debuts. And we may have had our first glimpse of the Oppo Reno8 series and the Find X5 Pro as well.

Here’s the full list of this week’s highlights and see you in seven days!
