Samsung previously stated that both the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus have variable refresh rates ranging from 10-120Hz, suggesting that the smartphones will have LTPO OLED technology. However, one notable display analyst has revealed that this is not the case.
In a now-deleted tweet, Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), revealed that, apart from the top-end Galaxy S22 Ultra, no other model in the series features LTPO OLED technology.
With LTPO, the screen refresh rate can be switched between 10 Hz and 120 Hz, depending on what is displayed on the screen. The technology helps reduce unnecessary battery drain, but has a higher production cost compared to traditional panels.
Samsung was unable to integrate the technology onto the Galaxy S22 or S22 Plus for obvious reasons without increasing the cost of both handsets. The refresh rate on these smartphones can only go up to 60 Hz.
Now that Samsung has reduced the screen sizes of the smartphones, they will also get smaller batteries compared to last year’s models, which has an impact on battery life.
