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.

The Galaxy S22 series is coming in January.
