Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ are official – same formula, but better

The Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ are official alongside the S22 Ultra, and as before, they lack a few of the Ultra’s specs, but unlike before have all of its premium build quality.

The pair of sub-flagships are also slightly smaller than their predecessors, which is particularly crucial for the vanilla Galaxy S22 as it’s bound to attract those that value flagship power in compact shells.

The Galaxy S22 and S22+ share the same chipset options. Depending on the market, you’ll either get a 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, or a 4nm Exynos 2200 – both feature an octa-core processor with one Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710 cores, and four Cortex-A510 ones. Both S22 and S22+ come in 8/128GB and 8/256GB configurations.

The cameras are also shared between the Galaxy S22 pair. The main one is the 50MP Samsung GN5 with a 1/1.57″ imager with 1.0µm pixels that binns to a 12.5MP final snap with 2.0µm pixels.

There’s also a 12MP 13mm ultrawide camera in front of a 1/2.55″ 1.4µm sensor without autofocus (sigh). There’s a 3x zoom camera with a 10MP sensor, not the 64MP digital zoom unit of the predecessors. For selfies, the pair of S22’s use a 10MP fixed-focus cam.

The Galaxy S22 now fits a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X that’s brighter and smarter with its refresh rate. It can reach a peak brightness of 1,300 nits and can adapt its refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz (the S21 did 48Hz-120Hz).

Dropping 0.1″ compared to the S21’s display has allowed the Galaxy S22 to shave 5mm of length, 0.6mm width and 0.3mm thickness, but it weighs about the same.

Another notable difference is the move away from plastic with this year’s S series. The rear panel of the S22 is all glass, Gorilla Glass Victus+ at that. In fact, all Galaxy S22 devices have Victus+ glass on all their panels.

Battery-wise, the Galaxy S22 has a smaller, 3,700mAh battery, compared to its predecessor’s 4,000mAh. It charges at the same maximum rate of 25W.

The Samsung Galaxy S22+ has a bigger 6.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x display that dynamically refreshes between 10Hz and 120Hz but achieves a higher 1750 nits of brightness.

The battery is bigger at 4,500mAh, with faster 45W wired charging. The S22+ also has Wi-Fi 6E, while the S22 only goes up to Wi-Fi 6.

Both new Galaxies come with Android 12 and OneUI 4.1 out of the box. Unsurprisingly they also have 5G on all their versions. They’re IP68 waterproof, and use Samsung’s ultrasonic fingerprint for biometric authentication.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ are available for pre-order starting tomorrow. The S22 is €849/£769 for the 8/128GB and €899/£819 for the 8/256GB, while the S22+ is €1,049/£949 for the 8/128GB and €1,099/£999 for the 8/256GB, respectively.
