Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra launched with S-Pen: Here’s what you need to know

After months of wait, Samsung has finally unveiled Samsung S22 Ultra alongside Samsung S22 and S22+ at the Galaxy Unpacked event. Although the phone looms over the expensive side, it has its fair share of boastful spec bumps and features. Let’s have a detailed look at it’s specifications!

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: Design and Display

The design of the S22 Ultra appears to be largely influenced by the Note 20 Ultra. The stylus, known as the S-pen, is now more thoroughly integrated with the “Galaxy S” experience, having its own enclosure to safely store it while not in use. However, it features a new design along with a metal body which has a new camera layout bearing no camera bumps. 

The S22 Ultra boasts a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a resolution of 1440p (3080×1440). All thanks to LTPO 2, a variable refresh rate of 1Hz-120Hz. The panel has a maximum brightness of 1750 nits, supports touch sampling at up to 240Hz (in gaming mode), and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus Plus offering superior protection. The display has a punch hole cut-out in the centre. The 2022 flagship smartphone has a 40MP punch-hole selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.2. An ultrasonic fingerprint reader is present in the same spot as that on Galaxy S21 Ultra

Additionally, Galaxy S22 Ultra’s display has been enhanced with Wacom technology (a leader in drawing tablets) to offer enhancements to S Pen capabilities, including reduced latency. It sports dual stereo speakers, a dual-SIM slot, and support for 5G , Wi-Fi 6E , along with ultra-wideband (UWB).

A 108MP main camera with an f/1.8 aperture is the highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra camera setup. A 12MP, 120-degree ultra wide camera with an f/2.2 aperture is also included in the quad-camera setup. Finally, two 10MP telephoto camera sensors with 3x (30x digital zoom) and 10x optical zoom are included.

The front of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra features a 40-megapixel camera sensor with an f/2.2 aperture lens. All thanks to its 2.4um pixel sensor, Samsung also touts excellent “Nightography” low light photography advancements.
