Good news, everyone – all three Galaxy S22 series phones will have glass backs, per reliable tipster @UniverseIce.
This will go a long way for fans of the smaller Galaxy flagships, who had to contend with a plastic-backed Galaxy S21 next to a Gorilla Glass Victus-clad S21 Ultra. The Galaxy S21+ was also built with a plastic rear.
There is a definite answer about the rear cover material of Galaxy S22 series:
S22, S22 +, S22 ultra are all made of glass!

We here at HQ have been particularly irked by this Samsung strategy. Glass feels nicer and is more durable than plastic.
The Galaxy S22 series is coming in January.
