Samsung Galaxy S22 series: What’s new?
This year, Samsung distinguished the Ultra model with a distinct look from the others. He was notified, if you will. It’s as if Samsung picked up where it left off with the Galaxy Note lineup from last year, but named the new device – Galaxy S22 Ultra. Samsung removed the island and placed the cameras directly on the rear surface. These sensors are a 108MP primary (Dual Pixel AF), a 10MP (10x periscope telephoto), a 10MP (3x optical telephoto) and a 12MP snapper (120˚ ultrawide).
The vanilla S22 and S22 Plus, meanwhile, have a rear camera bump similar to the S21 series, but with some changes to the sensors. Well, the setup now includes a 50MP primary sensor (Dual Pixel AF, OIS), a 10MP secondary sensor (3x telephoto with OIS) and a 12MP third snapper (120° ultrawide).
On the front, you get 40MP on the Galaxy S22 Ultra and 10MP on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+.
Other elements in the mix are One UI 4.1 (based on Android 12), LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1, storage, 5000 mAh + 45 W on the Galaxy S22 Ultra to 4500 mAh + 25 W on the Galaxy S22 Plus and 3700 mAh + 25 W on the standard Galaxy S22.
