Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra launched as the best phone yet of 2022

Samsung’s latest generation of Galaxy S flagships is finally official. The Galaxy S22 range includes the vanilla S22, the S22+ and the S22 Ultra, which are now one of the most, if not the most powerful phone in the world.

The main upgrades are Samsung’s flashy new chipset, the Exynos 2200, which was made in collaboration with AMD, and the RDNA 2 graphics. RDNA 2 technology also powers today’s most powerful game consoles on the market, namely the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

The Exynos 2200 models will hit the global market, but Chinese and US customers will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 version.

Design and display

At first glance, you can see that the S22 Ultra is the love child of the Galaxy S series and Note series. The design language is reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 20 with symmetrical dimensions and aggressive display curves on the sides. The S Pen is now fully integrated into the phone with a dedicated slot, unlike last year’s S21 Ultra, which only came with S Pen support without full integration.

Does this mean the Galaxy Note series is officially dead? Probably.

The screen is a large 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with 2K resolution and a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. Being a ‘dynamic’ AMOLED panel, it can lower the refresh rate when needed to conserve battery life. Aside from that, the display has support for HDR10+ content, 12-bit colors and a peak brightness of 1750 nits.

The fingerprint sensor is an ultrasonic sensor built into the display.

The S-Pen and S22 Ultra are also IP 68 water and dust resistant. It will be available in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, Burgundy, Graphite, Red and Sky Blue, with the last 3 exclusive to Samsung.com.

Interior and storage

As mentioned, the S22 Ultra features the flagship Exynos 2200 SoC, which can rival the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Dimensity 9000 in performance. The Xclipse 920 GPU is powered by AMD’s rDNA 2 graphics, which incorporate hardware ray tracing in smartphones for breathtaking visuals in video games.

Samsung says the S-Pen has lower latency at 2.8ms than the previous generation.

The base memory configuration is 128GB/8GB, but Samsung offers up to 1TB of storage and 12GB of RAM if you don’t mind splurging on an arm and a leg. The phone boots One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 and Samsung promises 4 years of OS updates and 5 years of security patches, which is a first for Samsung.


The main camera setup is a beast. It includes a 108MP primary camera sensor with a size of 1/1.33″ and it is equipped with Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS, Laser Autofocus and more. It is capable of 8K video recording at 30 FPS, 4K 60FPS, 1080p slow motion, HDR10+ clips and more The second sensor is a 10MP periscope telephoto camera capable of a whopping 10x optical zoom.

The third sensor is another 10MP telephoto camera, but it doesn’t come equipped with a periscope lens for super zoom capabilities. It is limited to 3x optical zoom. The last sensor is a 12MP ultrawide camera with 120 degrees FOV. All these cameras support OIS and super stable video clips and images.

Even the 40MP selfie camera can capture 4K videos at 60 FPS.

Battery and prices

Samsung has finally lifted the barrier to 25W fast charging. The S22 Ultra has support for 45W wired charging on its 5,000mAh battery, as well as 15W wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has a starting price of $1200 which translates to Rs. 227,000, although it will cost slightly higher in Pakistan.
