Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will be the highlight of the upcoming S series. It’s not just the successor of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but also the Galaxy Note 20.


The device is expected to feature a squared-off design and come with a dedicated S Pen slot. As per reports, the S22 Ultra’s S Pen will have a latency of 2.8ms, which is the lowest so far.

It is expected to come with a 6.8-inch 2X Dynamic AMOLED display with a 2K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and punch-hole notch. It will use LTPO to switch between 1Hz and 120Hz refresh rate.

The camera bump that was found on the S21 Ultra will be removed and the S22 Ultra will instead come with four cameras placed separately. The device is expected to come with Gorilla Glass Victus+ at the front and the back.

The S22 Ultra is expected to feature a quad camera setup at the back – a 108MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera and two 10MP telephoto sensors with 3X and 10X optical zoom support. On the front, the device is expected to sport a 40MP selfie camera.

Another significant improvement will be in terms of fast charging. The device is expected to be equipped with a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wire fast charging and 15W wireless charging support.


Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus

The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are not expected to come with any significant changes over their predecessors. Even the camera bump is expected to be similar to last year. The Galaxy S22 is expected to ditch the “glasstic” back and both the devices will come with a glass back.

The Galaxy S22 is expected to come with a 6.06-inch display and the S22 Plus is expected to feature a slightly bigger 6.55-inch display. Both the displays will offer a Full HD resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and come with Gorilla Glass Victus+.

As for the optics, the S22 Plus and the standard S22 are said to feature a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide snapper and a 10MP telephoto camera.

The S22 Plus and S22 could be powered by 4,600mAh and 3,800mAh batteries, respectively, with support for 25W charging.

We should know more details in the coming weeks as Samsung takes the wraps off the flagship S22 series.
