Our Korean colleagues from The Elec have managed to obtain the ” Samsung cell phone shipping plan for 2022 “, which groups all smartphones that will be in production at the Korean giant next year. We therefore already know which models Samsung plans to release in 2022, as well as the number of units that will be produced. The schedule notably confirms the launch of certain smartphones that we have not yet heard of.

Among the smartphones, we find for example the Galaxy S21 FE, which had been reposted many times. We know thanks to leaker Jon Prosser that it will finally be available on January 4, and the table now tells us that the Korean giant intends to produce 9.3 million copies. A Galaxy S22 FE is also planned for the end of 2022. However, Samsung intends to sell a little less, since it would only be produced at 5.7 million units next year.

New foldable smartphones will arrive in 2022

Unsurprisingly, The Elec confirms that Samsung intends to renew its range of foldable smartphones next year, on which it has placed a lot of hope in 2021. Indeed, thecompany plans to produce 2.9 million Galaxy Z Fold 4 and 6.9 million Galaxy Z Flip 4, much more than the current generation. Samsung also intends to continue to produce a few million Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. In total, folding smartphones will represent 20% of the total production of flagships for Samsung, the company therefore really wants to democratize this type of device.

Samsung had drastically reduced the prices of its folding smartphones in 2021, which resulted in a significant increase in sales. However, due to the shortage of components, Samsung is currently unable to produce enough Galaxy Z Flip 3s to fulfill all orders. The increase in production next year could therefore be a clue that Samsung hopes to sell even more folding smartphones in 2022. To boost sales, therefore, next year’s models are expected to be even cheaper than this year.

Samsung hopes its Galaxy S22 will be a hit

On the Galaxy S22 side, Samsung is not betting on fair success between all models. Indeed, the manufacturer will produce 14.1 million Galaxy S22, 7.9 million Galaxy S22 Plus and 10.9 million Galaxy S22 Ultra. We already know that Samsung plans to increase smartphone prices compared to the Galaxy S21 by nearly $ 100. It will therefore be very difficult for the Korean giant to sell so many models, knowing that the Galaxy S21 had recorded the worst sales for years. According to a report by research firm Counterpoint, Samsung had only sold 13.5 million Galaxy S21s in six months, much less than previous generations.

Despite poor sales and the arrival of the new generation, Samsung will continue to produce a few million units of Galaxy S21 in 2022. The manufacturer would also bet on its Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S20 FE (5G) from last year, since he would like to produce a little more than 3 million copies. However, the company appears to have abandoned the other models in the series, the Galaxy S20, S20 +, and S20 Ultra.

The manufacturer is betting everything on its mid-range smartphones

According to information from The Elec, like every year, Samsung intends to make the most sales with the A range. This has always been the most popular, in particular thanks to its more affordable prices than the flagships of the S range. At the start of 2022, Samsung plans to produce 28 million Galaxy A53 5Gs, of which we have been able to discover the first renderings a few days ago. So that’s almost as much as all the Galaxy S22s put together.

We will also find other models like the Galaxy A33 5G which will be produced at 23 million units, or the low-end smartphone Galaxy A13 which will be manufactured in 27 million copies. The table also confirms the arrival of a Galaxy A73 5G, a Galaxy M53, a Galaxy M33 as well as a Galaxy M13. Several dozen other smartphones are also planned, but we do not yet have details about them.
