There have been various reports hinting the two line-ups would see the daylight in early 2022. However, the latest bit of launch forecast from leakster Jon Prosser (FrontPage Tech) seems more real. He has shared the date of the launch of the S21 FE and S22 series via his Twitter handle.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE to launch in January 2022
According to Jon Prosser, Samsung will be hosting an Unpacked event for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE on January 4, 2022. It won’t have any pre-booking period and will be up for sale in select markets starting January 11. Earlier it was reported that S21 FE could launch in the CES 2022 (Jan 5-8), but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

As far as the successor to the S21 series is concerned, the Galaxy S22 series is expected to launch on February 8 at 10:00 AM ET as per the leaks by Jon Prosser. Pre-orders will kickstart from the same date and the sale will begin on February 18, 2022.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Series Expected Specs
S22 Series is expected to have 3 new smartphones-Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra. Some live images of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra have also been leaked. The images reveal the inclusion of the S Pen with a slot at the bottom edge, next to the USB Type-C port and the speaker grille. The smartphone has a curved display with a hole-punch cut-out.
Samsung is expected to launch the new smartphone with a 6.8-inch AMOLED display and a 120Hz refresh rate while the standard S22 and S22+ will have 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch displays with a 120Hz refresh rate.
S22 Ultra is expected to feature a quad-camera setup with a 108MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and two 10MP telephoto sensors with 3x and 10x optical zoom. Being a flagship device, it is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset.
