After tons of leaks and rumors, Samsung has finally released the Galaxy S22 series. There are three smartphones in the series among which two are rumored to enter the Nepali market within two weeks. The phones are Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra. These phones have already started pre-order in Nepal. In this post, we will dig into the specs, features, availability, and the official price of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Overview
Display and Design
The new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra sports a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1750nits of peak brightness. You can also boost your touch sampling rate up to 240Hz in gaming mode. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ and has Vision Booster technology to manage the light intensity based on your surroundings. Further, it is IP68 certified against water and dust. This means it can survive up to 1.5m of water for 30 minutes.
Not only the screen but even the back panel gets its protection from Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+. Likewise, the frame is made from aluminum which leads the weight of the phone to be around 229 grams. It measures 163.3×77.9×8.9mm in dimension and is available in seven color options – Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, Burgundy, Sky Blue, Red, and Graphite. Here, the last three colors are Samsung.com’s exclusive options.
This phone has a boxy design with a completely refined camera housing. It even supports S-pen and ships with an in-built slot for the stylus. As a matter of fact, the pen leads to 70% less latency than the pen from note S20 Ultra.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, there are two processors on the device which depends on the region you are in. For the Europe version, it is powered up with Exynos 2200 chipset based on a 4nm manufacturing process. It integrates an octa-core (1×2.8 GHz Cortex-X2 & 3×2.50 GHz Cortex-A710 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A510) CPU with Xclipse 920 graphics processor.
For the rest of the world, you can get Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 gen 1 processor based on a 4nm manufacturing process. There is an octa-core (1×3.00 GHz Cortex-X2 & 3×2.40 GHz Cortex-A710 & 4×1.70 GHz Cortex-A510) CPU accompanied by Adreno 730 graphics processor.
As per memory, both models come in four memory configurations – 8/128GB, 12/256GB, 12/512GB, and 12/1TB of UFS 3.1. Among these two, only the middle two are available in Nepal now. You can not expand your internal storage further since there is no space for a microSD card slot. On the software front, the phone boots on Android 12 based on One UI 4.1. Samsung also promises four years of Android upgrades and 5 years of security patches.
Camera and Sound
Moving on, there is a quad-camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. It has a 108MP primary lens of an f/1.8 aperture, 0.8-microns pixel capacity, PDAF, Laser AF, and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) support. Likewise, there is a 10MP periscope telephoto sensor of an f/4.9 aperture, 1.12-microns pixel capacity, dual pixel PDAF, OIS, and 10x optical zoom. Next is a 10MP lens of f/2.4 aperture with 1.12-microns pixel capacity, dual pixel PDAF, OIS, and 3x optical zoom. Completing the setup is a 12MP ultrawide camera with an f/2.2 aperture, 120-degree field of view, and 1.4-microns pixel capacity. The last one also supports Super Steady Video which is quite impressive.
The module also holds the LED flash for better night shots. Galaxy S22 Ultra also has a 2.4-micron pixel sensor which is Samsung’s largest pixel sensor ever used. This results in better photo details even when there is low light. Further, the rear camera can record videos up to 8K at the rate of 24 frames per second with gyro-EIS support. It works with HDR10+ content and stereo sound recording.
Upfront, there is a 40MP selfie snapper with an f/2.2 aperture, 0.7-microns pixel capacity, and PDAF support. This time, there is a support of Dual video calls in the device. You can record videos up to 4K at 30/60 frames per second. Furthermore, there are stereo speakers that tune 32-bit/384kHz audio. Unfortunately, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack for calls and music.
Battery and Extras
Fueling the device is a medium Li-Ion 5,000mAh battery cell with 45W fast charging support. You can also see the USB Power Delivery 3.0, 15W Fast Qi/PMA wireless charging, and 4.5W Reverse wireless charging. The charging is done via a USB Type-C 3.2 port. Other connectivity options are Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, GALILEO), and NFC.
For biometrics, there is an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor and a software-based face unlocks. Other sensors include an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and barometer. Moreover, there are extra features like Samsung DeX, Samsung Wireless DeX (desktop experience support), Bixby natural language commands and dictation, Samsung Pay (Visa, MasterCard certified), and Ultra-Wideband (UWB) support.
