Just recently, well-known market research firm – Canalys released its new report on the global smartphone market data for the third quarter of 2021. Canalys report suggests, due to the global chip shortage and supply imbalance, smartphone shipments in the quarter fell by 6% from the previous quarter.
Speaking about specific companies, Samsung maintained the top spot with a market share of 23%. Aside from this, Apple ranked second, with a market share of 15%, an increase of 1% compared to the same period last year. Notably, the US tech giant surpassed Xiaomi to become the second-largest phone maker.
On the other hand, the global market share of the Chinese tech giant had reached 14% in the third quarter of this year. With 14% of total market share, Xiaomi slipped to the third rank, while it was the second-biggest smartphone vendor during the second quarter. Moreover, OPPO and Vivo tied for fourth with a 9% market share.
Canalys Principal Analyst, Ben Stanton. “The smartphone industry is striving to maximize production of devices as best it can. On the supply side, chipset manufacturers are increasing prices to disincentivize over-ordering, in an attempt to close the gap between demand and supply. But despite this, shortages will not ease until well into 2022.”
Samsung Galaxy S22 Series: Here’s everything we know so far!
Samsung has two main flagship lineups – Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, at the same time, there’s a Galaxy Z lineup available as well, which represents foldable smartphones. All of these series have their own identities as the Galaxy S is a camera focussed lineup, while the Galaxy Note includes phones with S Pen support.
Earlier this year, the Korean tech giant launched its new Galaxy S series called Galaxy S21. It includes three separate models with slightly different functionalities. The company introduced the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which features two telephoto lenses, for the first time, to offer a massive photography experience.
After the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung fans started talking about the next generation of the Galaxy S lineup that could also be unveiled early next year, most probably in January. According to speculations, the next year’s Galaxy S22 series will feature major upgrades over the current Galaxy S21 lineup.
However, we are months away from the tentative launch period of the Galaxy S22 series, but the leaks and rumors are continuously appearing online. So we’ve decided to maintain a track of every single piece of information regarding the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The following rumor IS NOT FIXED, but one of the CONSIDERING OPTIONS.
S22 Ultra will be the ONLY model with a GLASS back.

Download Samsung Galaxy S22 wallpapers [Link]
In early 2022, we hope that Samsung will launch the next iteration of its flagship Galaxy S smartphone that is the Galaxy S22 series. Now, a month before the expected launch, we have four leaked wallpapers from Samsung’s upcoming flagships for you to try.
With sprinkles of yellow, red and green – with an elegant design, not to mention the black variant that is suitable for dark mode – these backgrounds will fit any device you are currently rocking (via- Android Police).
They are reminiscent of early wallpapers we saw last year for the S21 series, which had a hover particle effect before the plain backdrop. It is reminiscent of sand, sometimes looking like water, with its bead-like droplets, each tinted with a tone that matches the rest of the wallpaper.
We expect a little more for the S22 series than the previous lineup, with the recent February launch window confirmed. Although the smaller S22 and S22+ look like refined versions of this year’s model, the S22 Ultra seems to be the successor to the Note 20 we have been dreaming of for a year.
You can download four wallpapers in the zip file on Android File Host to try on your phone. If you are interested in what will be available for us next year in the S22 series, be sure to check out our rumor roundup for everything we have learned so far.
