First Look: Everything You Need to Know about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series
Samsung just recently released their newest line of Smartphone flagships, the Galaxy S22 Series comprising three new models, namely the Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+ and the S22 Ultra. , The series starts progressing with the S22 and S22+ versions, all through to the S22 Ultra being the premium model out of the three devices.
So what has Samsung brought to the table this time? One of the main aspects to look forward to is the possibility of a 1TB storage option on the S22 Ultra. However, this is region-specific and will only be available in China and Korea at present.
Samsung has also made attempts to go green, with some of its components that are made from discarded fishing nets recycled for sustainability.
The S22 Ultra will, however, only include the S-Pen and a USB-C to USB-C cable along with the handset right out the box. The box will not include the Fast charging brick or headphones, so you will have to purchase that separately.
But due to demands and supply constraints, the more premium S22 Ultra will be the first out of the three to be released in the market. The S22 and S22+ will follow, but the waiting period or release is not yet clear.
S22 and S22+:
Now, as far as the spec sheet is concerned, both the S22 and S22+ are predominantly the same except in the battery department and display, where the S22+ features a slightly larger screen and battery than the S22.
The S22 features a 6.2-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Display with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels that can max out at 1,300 nits brightness and a 120Hz Refresh Rate.
