Samsung just concluded it’s Galaxy Unpacked Event and there are a lot of new things to talk about. At the event, Samsung announced its flagship Galaxy S series smartphones for 2022. The line-up included the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, Samsung also announced the Galaxy Tab S8 series, which includes the vanilla Galaxy Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8+ Ultra. However in this post let’s us talk about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra – The Ultimate Android Smartphone. Head over to Tech Everyday to get updates about other products and a lot more.
Samsung has played it safe with the design of the S22 Ultra. It retains the same camera placements and design as the previous year S21 Ultra. What makes it different from the S21 Ultra is the fact that now there is no separate housing for the cameras. The back panel is now a single glass piece which in my opinion gives it a refreshing look. Samsung this time around has given its users a lot of color options to choose from. The S22 Ultra comes in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, Burgundy, Red, Graphite and Sky Blue.
Samsung has finally included a S-Pen inside the smartphone. This step has also finally killed the Samsung Note Series. S pen latency came all the way down from 9 milliseconds to 2.8 milliseconds. Samsung also says that the algorithm can predicts the path a user will draw with the pen. The S-Pen is improved and the handwriting recognition rate is now higher. The S22 Ultra also supports S pen air actions, like flipping through your photo gallery or controlling the phone’s camera remotely, without touching the screen. This is one of the biggest reasons why Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra – is The Ultimate Android smartphone.
S22 Ultra is part of the first Galaxy S series to be equipped with the latest 4nm processor, which powers Samsung’s most advanced AI and ML processing. Samsung has used the new Exynos 2200 SoC which is built in association with AMD. Check out this post to know more about the processor. Samsung has also used the Snapdragon 8 gen 1 processor in some regions. It also features Wi-Fi 6E, up to twice as fast as Wi-Fi 6. Also comes with a dual-SIM slot along with support for 5G and ultra-wideband (UWB). That means you can enjoy unrivaled performance on all your most-used apps, whether you’re gaming, streaming, or working.
The S22 Ultra is IP68 water and dust rated. The phone also includes Gorilla Glass Victus Plus on the front and back panels. Samsung has also promised 4 years of android updates and 5 years of security updates. There are 4 storage and RAM options available.

Display & Battery
Samsung always has the best displays in the market. Its 6.8-inch OLED still features a 120Hz variable refresh rate, but it can reach an even higher 1,750 nit peak brightness if you are in direct sunlight. The display is a 6.8-inch, Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with Vision Booster technology which enables it to intelligently adjust brightness throughout the day. The display can automatically adjust the refresh rate from 1 to 120Hz depending on the content.
This Beefy boy packs a solid 5,000mAh battery with 45W fast wired and 15W wireless charging. Wireless powershare is also available for charging other compatible devices wirelessly. The phone will easily last more than a day under normal circumstances.
Camera specs on the S22 Ultra are similar to its predecessor. We still get a 108-megapixel main camera, 3x and 10x telephoto cameras, a 12-megapixel ultrawide, and a 40-megapixel selfie camera. This time around the improvements are largely software based and focused around low-light photo and video capabilities. It’s now possible to take night mode portraits, and users can capture high-resolution night mode shots. Images from the 108-megapixel camera now incorporate the added light-gathering benefits of pixel-binning technology.
The S22 Ultra can better identify subjects and separate them from the background as well as includes number of RAW photo tools for more comprehensive editing, and an advanced Super Clear Glass lens to help take smoother and crisper night-time videos without flares. There is a new app for capturing RAW images directly.
