samsung galaxy s22 ultra

2022 will be the year of Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 + e S22 Ultra, the successor of the much appreciated S21 and top of the range of the company. Although the curiosity is all for the next leaflets Z Fold 3 e Z flip 3, the Galaxy S family continues to be the most advanced. Not so much in the forms, as in the specifications, especially the photographic ones, increasingly requested by the enthusiastic tech users. And it will not be outdone by an S22 Ultra for which a further upgrade of the main photographic module is planned, but not only. Let's see, therefore, what should be the news that Samsung would be planning for the next batch of flagships for next year.

Upgrade 18 / 10: a new leak shows us what the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra should look like. Find all the details in the paragraph “Design and display".

All the news coming for Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 + and S22 Ultra

Design and display

Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 + would be equipped with a 6,06 " e 6,55 " Full HD + with LTPS AMOLED technology. The screen of the Ultra model would be much more valuable, from 6,81 "Quad HD + with technology LTPO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide). A feature that would allow, just like Note 20 Ultra, to enjoy a adaptive refresh rate. In this way, the screen could vary from a minimum of 1 Hz to a maximum of 120 Hz, adapting according to what is on the screen to save battery. For the form factor, there is talk of a transition from 20: 9 to 19.3: 9 and a greater screen / body ratio.

Looking at the front, however, although we continue to rumor of the much desired camera in the screen, S22 should bring the display forward with punch-hole of the current models. Among the specifications we also expect an ultrasonic ID sensor and a Gorilla Glass Victus protective glass.

When it comes to aesthetics, Samsung usually renews the design every 2 years. And since with the S21 series we have seen a restyling compared to the previous generation, with the introduction of a new aesthetic language for the top of the Samsung range, there will be no upheavals with the S22 series.

As happened with the last generation, only S22 Ultra will have a retro in glass, while for S22 e S22 + a glass-like polycarbonate called "GLASSTIC". Those that could change are the colors of the three smartphones. In fact, if S22 and S22 + could arrive in white, black, rose gold and green, Galaxy S22 Ultra could instead have white, black and dark red colors.

To reveal the features of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series there are the always punctual renderings of OnLeaks. The S22 series carries on the aesthetic styles of the S21 one, in particular with the photographic form rear that maintains the "traffic light" position. We find the difference in a detail, namely that the module no longer merges with the side frame, as there is a gap between the two elements.

The same goes for Samsung Galaxy S22 +, while with Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra there would be a more radical change. The latest renderings highlight the presence of a quad camera with laser autofocus, but no longer the rectangular module to contain them. On the contrary, the sensors would be almost flush with the body, with the exception of the metal ring that surrounds them to prevent the lenses from scratching.

The renderings of the cover dedicated both to Galaxy S22 e S22 +, both to those for S22 Incredibly . The first, shown by Ice Universe, essentially show the shape shown in the renders of OnLeaks.

The other novelty of Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra would also lie in the form factor, more squared and therefore tending to the Note series, as well as by the integration of the S Pen (which we talk about in the section "Hardware“) Complete with special slot in the phone case. Recall that the S21 Ultra also supports the S Pen, but without a hole in the frame, therefore it needs a special cover to carry it with you. But since the S22 Ultra will be the heir to the Galaxy Note series, Samsung has well thought of compensating for this lack of the S21 Ultra.

Dimensionally, for all three models there would be a slight scaling body and weight. According to the leaks, S22 would measure 146 x 70 x 7,6 mm for 167 g, S22 + would rise to 157,4 x 75,8 x 7,6 mm for 195 g and finally S22 Ultra at 163,3 x 77,9 x 8,9 , 228 mm for XNUMX g.


Like every new S family, Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 + and S22 Ultra will also be equipped with future solutions Exynos 2200 o Snapdragon 895. According to rumors, the Exynos 2200 should only be used in Europe and other regions. There is talk of a Samsung production process a 4 nm, with a new octa-core CPU formed as follows: 1 x 2,9 GHz Cortex-X2 + 3 x 2,8 GHz + 4 x 2,2 GHz. But the real news would be the AMD GPU, for the first time on smartphones, with a clock of well 1250 MHz. The collaboration would be designed to compete with Qualcomm's Adreno solutions, although it remains to be seen what will happen with AMD's debut in the world of smartphones. It is said that the new graphics cards would allow the introduction of features such as ray-tracing and variable rate shading. As for the memories, we expect cuts that go up to a maximum of 16 GB of RAM LPDDR5 e 1 TB of storage for the maximum model.

However, there would be a big difference from the past. Rumors point out that the Exynos variant will be hard to find. The company would have encountered production difficulties and therefore there may be fewer chipsets than expected, also due to the ongoing semiconductor crisis. For this reason, the Exynos variant will be offered only in some selected markets: we will see if it will come to us or not.

Like S21 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will also have full support for the S Pen, thanks to the Wacom technology integrated into the screen. Although it can be assumed that, even in this round, it will be purchased separately and there will be new covers for the housing, from a new leak of Ice Universe comes the interesting indiscretion that the S series will completely incorporate the S Pen dei Notes, so as to have even integrated it (this refers to the possible new form factor of the three smartphones). We do not know if this will remain relegated to the Ultra model or will also extend to the other two, but it would certainly be a small change.

As for the battery, initially the leaks revealed us units from 3.700, 4.600 e 5.000 mAh for the three models of the S22 series, therefore lower than the S21 range. In reality, the amperages for the two base and Plus models would drop further, reaching 3.700 mAh e 4.500 mAh (3.590 mAh nominal for the standard one) by virtue of the smaller size, while for the Ultra one it would not change this aspect, keeping the aforementioned battery.

Instead, the charging standard seemed to increase. After being criticized for not being up to par with rivals such as Xiaomi, OPPO and Huawei, Samsung seemed to want to launch S22 + e S22 Ultra able to charge a 45W, at least according to Ice Universe, which relegating again to 25W model S22 smooth. The reason is to be found both in the battery capacity of the latter, which makes the standard more than sufficient, as on the iPhone. We will surely find the wireless charging, as well as the policy of not offering a charger in the box.

from 3C certification however, all of this is totally downsized. In fact, the 3 models would still have a fixed charging power at 25W, even for the Ultra model, which, however, is not excluded from being compatible with 45W. In short, we cannot expect huge steps forward from this department.


Since it will arrive at the beginning of 2022, the triptych consisting of Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 + and S22 Ultra will only be based on the next Android 12. It will be interesting to see if Samsung will embrace its new aesthetic style as well Material U. This novelty will allow Android users to further customize the graphical interface, choosing the various colors of the UI also based on the selected backgrounds. In addition, new security features will be added, such as the ability to block microphone and camera for your privacy. A version of Android that will be enriched and customized again in the future One UI 4.0.


For years Samsung has focused on improving the photographic quality of its smartphones, in particular with the high-end Galaxy S series. And as anticipated, with the S22 series there are interesting improvements in this respect. There were rumors of an alleged collaboration with Olympus, a well-known photographic production house based in Japan. A partnership that cannot fail to bring to mind what has been done by Huawei with Leica, I live with Zeiss e OnePlus with Hasselblad. But in reality the Japanese house would have denied this indiscretion.

Differently from the initial rumors, the S22 series would not use a sensor from either 200 MP nor one camera below the screen. The leaks tell us about a configuration from 50 + 12 + 10 MP with wide angle and telephoto lens for S22 e S22 +. The primary sensor would be the Samsung GN5, new 1 / 1,57 ″ sensor and 1,0 μm pixels, therefore greater sensitivity to light. It would not change the wide-angle lens, while the telephoto lens with zoom 3x it would be the same as seen on the S21 Ultra. For S22 Ultra, on the other hand, there are rumors of a quad camera from 108 MP by adding a system with dual telephoto lens.

One of the main novelties should be the use of a system of continuous optical zoom, a significant leap forward compared to now. If we take S21 Ultra, the smartphone is equipped with two fixed telephoto lenses with 3x and 10x focal lengths. Everything that is in the middle or beyond 10x occurs through software interpolation by combining the acquired data between the various lenses. In reverse, S22 Ultra it would have two telephoto lenses 3x e 10x with variable focal length. Both should use two sensors from 12 MP with 1,22 µm pixels and should have stabilization OIS.

Another noteworthy novelty would be the use of a new one optical sensor stabilization. A feature that we have seen recently adopted on the iPhone 12 Pro Max and that we find on the most recent Sony mirrorless. The advantage would be a more effective stabilization and less prone to artifacts, as it would be the sensor rather than the lens that moves during stabilization. Among other things, the rumors also mention a wide-angle lens 12 MP also equipped with OIS. Finally, for the selfie camera a sensor should be kept from 40 MP.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra - Price and Release Date

It is still early to get a clear idea of ​​when the Samsung Galaxy S22 series presentation event will take place. Initially the launch was supposed to take place in January 2021, but due to the postponement of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE the presentation would be postponed. On the other hand, it wouldn't make much sense for Samsung to launch an S21 series model alongside the S22 series. And therefore it is assumed that S22 may arrive later, perhaps on the occasion of the MWC 2022 of Barcelona, ​​currently scheduled from 28 February to 3 March.

The price with which the Samsung Galaxy S22 series models will be offered remains a mystery. But most likely they should not fall below those of the S21 series, which starts from € 849 to € 1.529 for the Ultra model. Surely, what we will see most frequently on the shelves will be the basic model, which never before would have a primary role in distribution. In fact, it seems that Samsung will produce as many as 20 million copies of the S22, that is 60% of the total production of the entire range. It is clear that Samsung wants to push a lot for the compact solution, which it seems to believe not poco. And this opens up a scenario that could also see an advance release of this model compared to the other two.
