Samsung Galaxy S22 Series: What’s new
This year, Samsung has set apart the Ultra model with a distinct look from the rest. It has been Note-ified, if you will. It feels as if Samsung took up from where it left off the Galaxy Note lineup last to last year, but named the new device — Galaxy S22 Ultra. Samsung has removed the island and placed the cameras right on the rear surface. These sensors are a 108MP (Dual Pixel AF) primary one, a 10MP (10x periscope telephoto), a 10MP (3x optical telephoto), and a 12MP (120˚ ultrawide) snapper.
Both the vanilla S22 and S22 Plus, meanwhile have a rear camera bump similar to the S21 series, but with some change in sensors. Well, the setup now includes a 50MP (Dual Pixel AF, OIS) main sensor, a 10MP (3x telephoto with OIS) secondary sensor, and a third 12MP (120° ultrawide) snapper.
On the front, you get 40MP on the Galaxy S22 Ultra and a 10MP on both Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+.
Other things in the mix are One UI 4.1 (based on Android 12), LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1, storage, 5000mAh+ 45W on the Galaxy S22 Ultra to 4500mAh +25W on the Galaxy S22 Plus, and 3700mAh+ 25W on the regular Galaxy S22.
