The phone’s purported specifications are also extremely amazing. In the United States and most other regions, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, while European models will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 2200.
According to previous reports, the S22 Ultra will also include a 6.8-inch QHD+ display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, a 108MP primary camera, and a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wired charging. What may surprise some is that the lowest configuration will only feature “just” 8GB of RAM.
In the United States, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 and S22+ variants will also use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU. Both phones are expected to include a new 50MP primary sensor, as well as a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 10MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
While the standard model is reported to have a 6.1-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, the S22+ might have a much bigger 6.6-inch panel with the same high refresh rate as the finest Samsung phones.
On the software front, the S22 series phones will most likely run Android 12 with Samsung’s One UI 4.1 on top. In addition, the phones may receive four Android OS upgrades and five years of security updates.
The Galaxy S22 series phones aren’t the only new products scheduled to be unveiled at Unpacked 2022 by Samsung. It is also expected to reveal the Galaxy Tab S8 series, which is expected to contain Samsung’s first-ever “Ultra” tablet.
