If you want the look and all the features of the Samsung Galaxy S22 but with a bigger screen and battery, there’s the Galaxy S22+.
Galaxy S22+ has a 6.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection and a 120Hz refresh rate. Like the rest of its siblings, it also runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor along with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage with no provisions for a microSD card.
The device also shares the same optics with the vanilla Galaxy S22. That means you get a 12MP Ultra-Wide unit, a 50MP wide-angle shooter with OIS, and a 10MP Telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and OIS. It also has a 10MP front camera.
As such, it also gets all the goodies in the more affordable variant – brighter and more detailed night shots, a redesigned AI ISP that compounds up to 20 photos to drastically reduce noise, as well as better NPU and GPU performance.
Samsung also promises Stable Videos using Wider Shift OIS as well as Advanced VDIS that boasts four times faster stabilization by predicting the device’s movement while also analyzing the subject’s movement. Even in low-light, the device can focus on a fast-moving subject with AI-assistance. You also get brighter night portraits, complimented with up to 3x optical zoom.
Galaxy S22+ runs Android 12 with Samsung’s One UI 4 and packs a 4,500mAh battery with 45W-fast charging. It comes in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, and Pink Gold colors.
