Samsung has announced that it will be holding its next Unpacked event on February 9, and here are the top five things we expect to be announced during the show.
It’s official – Samsung will be hosting an Unpacked event in a few weeks and this is where we expect it to showcase the latest and greatest of its tech products.
Here are the top five things we expect to see on the big day, so be sure to stay tuned to find out what’s in store.
1. The arrival of the S22 series

Unsurprisingly, the main news of the event is the debut of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series of smartphones. Hoping to prove itself as the cream of the crop, there are believed to be three models in the range – standard, Plus and Ultra – and this year the rumored upgrades would include a new main camera sensor and chipset (but more on that later). …)
2. Potential Price Increases
Did you think those improvements would come for free? Well, I have bad news for you…
$799, $999 & $1199
Perhaps a $50 increase based on and plus up, a larger model could see a $100 increase.

According to the rumor mill, the S22 series could be eligible for significant price increases. The source above indicates a $50 increase for the base model and $100 for the Plus and Ultra, while Twitter tipster @chunvn888 hinted that the S22 Ultra could cost as much as $1,299.
We don’t have any hard evidence of the price hikes at this point, but don’t say we didn’t warn you!
3. Restoring the S-Pen . on-board
Samsung Galaxy Note 20
When the Galaxy Note line was discontinued in 2019, the onboard S-Pen suffered the same fate. Yes, the stylus reappeared as an optional extra with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, but the lack of a secure slot to insert meant it was more of a nuisance than a nice thing.
According to recent hints — including some dropped by Samsung itself in an editorial ahead of the event — the built-in S-Pen looks set to make a triumphant return.
4. Samsung’s first-ever 4nm chipset
Samsung Exynos 2200 chipset
In the wake of the announcement of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Samsung has also joined the 4nm club with its own brand Exynos 2200. What makes it especially special is that it is the very first mobile chipset to support ray tracing, a feature that means that light can be simulated as accurately as possible in video games and the like.
European customers will likely get the Exynos 2200, while US customers could get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 instead, but early indications show the chipsets offer somewhat similar performance.
5. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8

Last but not least, we expect the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. Little is known about the successor to the 2020 Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, but it is thought that a huge 14.6-inch Ultra edition could arrive in the range, along with the same latest mobile chip technology found in the S22. series.
