Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Overview
And for the first time in the S series, the S22 Ultra now comes with an S Pen stylus built-in, which was previously exclusive to the Galaxy Note series. The S Pen has a latency of just 2.8ms, down from 9ms of the Note 20 Ultra and S21 Ultra.
The S22 Ultra also got rid of the rear camera enclosure that had been featured in its predecessor. The positions of the cameras and the flash are the same, though.
Both the front and back of the phone are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+, making it the first smartphone to feature the material. It has an aluminium frame and is rated IP68 water and dust resistance.
It also has a new Burgundy colour option along with Phantom Black, Phantom White, and Green.
The S22 Ultra features a 6.8-inch curved Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a peak brightness of 1750nits. It’s an adaptive refresh rate display, similar to what we saw on the OnePlus 10 Pro, that can reach up to 120Hz for smooth scrolling and down to 1Hz to save energy.
Samsung also introduced Vision Booster technology this year with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. According to Samsung, the technology intelligently adjusts the screen brightness of the device throughout the day to enhance the viewing experience, even in direct sunlight.
Samsung’s flagship phone this year came equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in Nepal.
It is built on a 4nm process and is designed in a tri-cluster structure comprised of a single powerful Arm Cortex-X2 flagship-core, three performance and efficiency balanced Cortex-A710 big-cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A510 little-cores.
Qualcomm claims the new Adreno 730 GPU in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can boost graphics rendering capabilities by 30% and power savings by 25% compared to the previous generation.
Additionally, the phone supports Wi-Fi 6E, which the standard Galaxy S22 does not.
The device comes with two memory configurations: 12GB RAM with 256GB of storage and 12GB RAM with 512GB of storage.
Spec-wise, the S22 Ultra cameras are mostly identical to the last year’s S21 Ultra. It has a 108MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, two 10MP telephoto cameras: 3x and 10x optical zoom.
Samsung claims the S22 Ultra’s OIS hardware has a 58% wider correction angle compared to the S21 series, resulting in better video stabilization. Samsung also introduced an Auto Frame Rate feature on the S22 Ultra.
Additionally, the S22 Ultra can save images in RAW format, up to 16bit. However, users must first download the free Expert RAW app from the Galaxy Store.
On the front, the S22 Ultra sports a 40MP selfie camera. The rear camera can take video at up to 8K while the front can take up to 4K resolution.
Battery and Others
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with a 5000mAh battery and supports 45W fast charging. However, the charger is not included in the box.
The device runs on the latest One UI 4.1 on top of Android 12. Samsung has committed to providing its flagship series with four generations of Android OS upgrades.

This year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra feels more like the Note 20 Ultra’s successor. Samsung has combined the S and Note series features into the S22 Ultra.
The S22 Ultra’s boxier design, sharp edges, flat sides, and the built-in S Pen stylus all evoke the design language of the Note series.
To save battery, the display’s refresh rate can now go as low as 1Hz from 120Hz. It is also the first mobile device to offer ray tracing thanks to Exynos 2200.
