In both cases, that is 300 mAh less than its predecessor. Remarkable but not shocking. They will both have a smaller screen; 0.10 and 0.15 inch smaller respectively. With a smaller screen, the battery can also be smaller to reach the same battery life. The battery of the S22 gets type number EB-BS901ABY and appeared at a Korean approval website.

Galaxy S22 series

The Galaxy S22 series does seem to break away from the S21 series despite the same looks. The entry-level S22 is a lot smaller, the S22 Ultra looks more like a Note with S Pen support and the S22+ sits more in between in terms of size. A launch is expected in the 1st quarter of 2022 so there is still enough time in which things can change.
