Samsung had just announced their latest Galaxy S22 series that will make Galaxy Note fans very happy. In there you will find Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra which not just looked like the Note, it also comes with S Pen and also the best in class camera system. That’s truly ULTRA grade smartphone for Samsung fans.
|Galaxy S22 5G||6.1″||128GB||S$1,178|
|Galaxy S22+ 5G||6.6″||128GB||S$1,468|
|Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G||6.8″||128GB||S$1,718|
Samsung even improved the latency performance by threes times, from 9ms to 2.8ms. Together with predictive A.I. technology, your scribbling experience will now be smoother and more accurate than ever. And don’t worry about where to keep the S Pen. It’s just like the old Note. You eject it out from the phone at the bottom. No need to keep it separately like the S21 Ultra launched last year.
And talking about performance, it is nice to know that Singapore will get the latest 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 available in all the S22 devices sold here. Great news for those who find it a taboo to have the Exynos chips.
For those who often use their phone under the sun, the display on the S22 Ultra will have a 6.8″ super bright Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. This new display have a maximum brightness of up to 1,750 nits. So it’s not going to be an issue to read under the bright sunlight.
As for the best in class camera system, the S22 Ultra will have a 108MP main camera which is also a bigger sensor than before for better image quality. It will also have two 10MP telephoto cameras (3x & 10x optical zoom) and a 12MP ultra wide camera. Samsung also introduce their latest NIGHTOGRAPHY feature with this launch. It’s suppose to help you take brighter and more details shots in low light conditions.
We briefly gave it a try as you can see in our tiktok video, but we are unable to download in the image to show you here. The results seem comparable with HUAWEI and iPhone’s standard. We will let you know more once we do the tests.
Samsung had also improved their Portrait shots, so now you can get more natural looking bokeh shot. Identifying fine details like hair and strings have been greatly improved. So it’s less likely to get abrupt blurring that looks weird.
Videography had also been improved for better night video for sharper and less noisy shots in low light. Subject track focus and video stabilization have been greatly improved too. Being able to take a great video is just as important as photos these days. I am glad that Samsung have added these improvements too.
If you misses the Galaxy S series design, fear not. The S22 and S22 Plus will maintain that classic S series form factor. But it will also have a slightly lower performance camera system compared to the Ultra. Likewise the price are also much lower than the S22 Ultra too.
