Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: 5 important things
The following five things you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra:
#1 Goodbye, Galaxy Note
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is the second S smartphone to feature S Pen support. The only difference from last year is that you can now store it inside the device itself. Does it look familiar to you?
Thanks to its large screen, design and certain color options, the Galaxy S22 Ultra was already very similar to the Note. The similarity is undeniable with the addition of the S Pen in the device itself. The end of the Galaxy Note is here, ladies and gentlemen.

#2 Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: the specifications
We could tell you a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, but the real enthusiast just wants to know what the specs are. After all, that’s the reason why people are likely to grab this model. In that regard, you can expect the following:
6.8-inch Edge QHD+ display | 120Hz | 240Hz Touch Sampling Rate
Exynos 2200 processor
8GB or 12GB working memory

#3 Camera block gone
We didn’t include the camera system in the spec list, because this guy deserved some attention. Especially when, as a platform, you’ve been shouting for years that companies like Samsung, OnePlus and Xiaomi should throw those damn camera blocks in the trash.
Thankfully, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra does just that. The camera block is a thing of the past and the lenses are now glued to the back of the smartphone, so to speak. Especially in combination with the pink color option, it’s quite a pretty sight.
What is also nice are the specifications of that camera. The Galaxy S22 Ultra offers a Quad camera system consisting of:
12 megapixel ultra-wide camera
108 megapixel wide camera
10 megapixel telephoto lens (3x optical zoom)
10 megapixel telephoto lens (10x optical zoom)
Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is also equipped with Space Zoom. This makes it possible to zoom a photo up to 100x.
On the front of the device you will find a 40 megapixel selfie camera.

#4 Updates for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with more updates than any other S smartphone. At least, during its launch. Along with the S21 series, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Flip3 and the Galaxy Tab S8, all models in the series will receive longer support.
Consumers can expect as many as four different versions of Android on the devices and then receive security updates for five years. A very big step in the right direction, if you ask us.

#5 Prices and availability
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, as mentioned, will compete with the top all year long. In fact, it is expected that this model will be present in the top all year. It should be, because the smartphone is not cheap.
As of February 25, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is available. The smartphone is available in Burgundy, Phantom Black, Phantom White and Green colors. The following price ranges apply:
