Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone
The Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra were unveiled at the “Galaxy Unpacked” conference on February 9, 2022. These brand new smartphone models are now available! The Samsung Galaxy S22 are now released on February 25, 2022 for the Ultra model and March 11 for the classic version and the S22+.
Samsung took advantage of its “Galaxy Unpacked” conference to reveal a lot of information about the new Samsung Galaxy S22. Among the latter, we find in particular the characteristics of smartphones, but also their base price for their launch.
- Galaxy S22: from 859 euro
- Galaxy S22+: from 1059 euro
- Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: from 1259 euro
These new smartphones are therefore always positioned at high-end prices. Note that the prices listed can be evaluated depending on the storage space you need.
Despite all the efforts made to keep the secret around the Samsung Galaxy S22, the firm has not succeeded in preventing numerous leaks from scattering on the web. Several pieces of information were therefore already known before the official announcement, and confirm the excellent characteristics of the three new Galaxy S22s:
An Exynos 2200 processor
Samsung is one of those manufacturers capable of offering their own in-house processors. The S21 was notably equipped with the Exynos 2100 chip with excellent performance that can compete with Snapdragon processors. It would seem that the firm wants to continue with this decision since our European models still have an in-house chip.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 are therefore all equipped with an Exynos 2200 processor. The latter, if it has excellent results on the various specialized tests, however seems a bit behind compared to the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 unveiled there. a few months old. However, it will be necessary to wait for new tests on the marketed versions of the S22 Ultra to be fixed.
A design very close to its predecessor
The first leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S22 already produce a state of great resemblance to its predecessor! We find there in particular a photo block placed on the side as well as a front sensor placed in the center of the screen and not directly placed under the screen as is already the case on the brand’s foldable phone, the Z Fold 3.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra differs a little more from its classic counterpart by offering an original P-shaped photo block. The latter also has an additional photo module dedicated to the telephoto lens. The edges of the S22 Ultra also differ from the other two models since they are more rounded in order to leave more room for the screen. The latter is in particular fully compatible with the use of the Samsung S-Pen stylus which is directly available with the smartphone.
Four colors are available for the Samsung Galaxy S22. The first two models (S22 and S22+) are available in Rose Gold, Green, White and Black. The Samsung S22 Ultra replaces the Rose Gold color with a Burgundy red that is exclusive to it. These colors are all available on the official Samsung website as well as at specialist retailers.
A high definition screen with 120 Hz
Regarding the screen of the Galaxy S22, the latter are divided into two distinct categories: on the one hand the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ equipped with a Full HD + panel while the S22 Ultra is equipped with a QHD + panel. All three screens feature screens capable of displaying an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. The latter will allow you to benefit from a great fluidity during your games and applications, while saving your battery when necessary. Regarding the sizes relating to the screens, these evolve according to the desired model:
- Galaxy S22: 6.1″ screen.
- Galaxy S22+: 6.6 screen“.
- Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: 6.6″ screen.
A camera with 50 MP
The current generation of Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ has three photo sensors of 12, 12 and 64 MP respectively. Only the S21 Ultra stood out with four dedicated sensors (12, 108, 10 and 10) for wide angle, ultra wide angle and telephoto. The Samsung Galaxy S22 offer new sensors with a main switch to 50 Mpx. The smartphone thus fits the following model:
- Galaxy S22: 50MP main sensor / 12MP ultra-wide angle / 10MP telephoto lens.
- Galaxy S22+: 50MP main sensor / 12MP ultra-wide angle / 10MP telephoto lens.
- Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: main sensor 108 Mpx / ultra wide angle 12 Mpx / 2 telephoto lenses 10 and 10 Mpx.
