For those who want the very best that Samsung has to offer in a smartphone today, the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is for you.
Galaxy S22 Ultra offers a design that’s different from its smaller siblings and looks almost like what I’d imagine a Galaxy Note device would look like if one was released now. Oh, the S-Pen? There’s now a dedicated compartment for it.
The device has a 6.8-inch Edge QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, the largest in the lot, bolstered with a 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate in Game Mode, and 1750 nits of peak brightness for hassle-free outdoor use. At the helm is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor along with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage.
For optics, the Galaxy S22 Ultra packs a 12MP ultrawide unit, a 108MP wide-angle lens, two telephoto cameras, one 3x, and the other 10x. It features 100X Space Zoom. At the front, a 40MP snapper takes care of selfies.
Being the most advanced in the series, the device is built with a 2.4um pixel sensor, the largest pixel sensor from Samsung, allowing the lenses to capture more light and data for brighter and clearer photos. It’s also equipped with the advanced Super Clear Glass for improved night videos, then there’s auto-framing, for making sure that you capture the exact subject you want.
Like its siblings, the Galaxy S22 Ultra lets you access the Expert RAW app, which brings in-camera editing tools for a DLSR-like experience, as well as the ability to save photos in up to 16-bit RAW format.
Galaxy S22 Ultra gives you 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 it can focus on a fast-moving subject with AI-assistance. You also get brighter night portraits with support for up to 3x optical zoom.
It comes pre-installed with Android 12 with Samsung’s One UI 4 on top, and packs a 5,000mAh battery with up to 45W wired and 15W wireless fast charging. It comes in Burgundy, Green, Phantom White, and Phantom Black colors.
