on

Samsung has unveiled Galaxy S22 and S22+, two flagship devices that power creativity and self-expression. Built with a bold design and sustainable materials, Galaxy S22 and S22+ are designed to be both beautiful and environmentally responsible. Galaxy S22 and S22+ introduce dynamic cameras with advanced intelligent image processing to make every moment epic.

 

“Our smartphone cameras have transformed the way we create, share, and communicate. Through photos and videos, we express ourselves and connect with the people we care about,” said TM Roh, President, and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business. “That’s why we focused on designing our latest S Series devices with ground-breaking camera capabilities that work day and night, powered by our best mobile performance yet.”

Own the Night with Samsung’s Most Intelligent Camera Yet

Galaxy S22 and S22+ are designed to deliver next-level camera experiences, so people can connect and share wherever they are. With the Galaxy S22 Series’ revolutionary new Nightography features – like the 23% larger sensor[1] and Adaptive Pixel technology – your camera is designed to let in more light, draw out details, and capture colours that make your content pop even in the dark[2]. Both Galaxy S22 and S22+ are built with a powerful 50MP main camera, 10MP tele-lens, and 12MP ultra-wide lens, so you always get the highest-quality shots. And when you’re capturing videos with friends, the new Auto Framing[3] feature detects and tracks up to 10 people and automatically adjusts the camera’s focus, so your camera captures everyone clearly. Both devices are powered by advanced VDIS technology which minimises vibrations, so you get smooth, sharp footage even when you’re on the move.

 

Galaxy S22 and S22+ are also equipped with Samsung’s latest AI technology, taking your photos to the next level. It’s easy to take perfect Portrait Mode photos with the new AI Stereo Depth Map, and your subjects will look better than ever with even the smallest details appearing crisp and clear thanks to a sophisticated AI algorithm. The same works for your favourite furry friend: Galaxy S22/S22+’s new Portrait mode prevents pet hair from blending into the background, so you always get the best shot of your pet.

Power and Performance That Keep Up with Your Life

From work to home, Galaxy S22 and S22+ are designed to power you through even the busiest days with the first-ever 4nm processor on a Galaxy smartphone. It powers our most advanced AI and ML processing to date, delivering unrivalled performance for all your streaming and productivity needs. What’s more, network behaviour analysis streamlines your app performance by automatically detecting which app you’re using and directing the most power there – so streaming, surfing the web, and navigating apps have never been smoother.

A fast processor demands power that can keep pace. Galaxy S22 is built with a robust all-day battery[4] and 25W fast charging that never slows you down, and Galaxy S22+ features a super-powerful battery that can last even longer than a day on a single charge4. Galaxy S22+ also offers 45W super-fast charging, so you don’t have to wait when your power is running low.

 

Streaming a movie or your favourite show will look even better on Galaxy S22 and S22+’s beautiful displays. Both devices come equipped with a Dynamic AMOLED[5] 2X adaptive 120Hz display, designed for the best in gaming and watching. Whether you choose Galaxy S22’s premium 6.1-inch[6] display or Galaxy S22+’s 6.6-inch[7], each screen is built with intelligent Vision booster technology that automatically adjusts the display to the lighting around you and enhances the colour contrast, so you can enjoy the best possible view of your content. Plus, hardware performance enhancements have improved display brightness – S22 has a peak brightness of 1,300nit while S22+ features a peak 1,750nit[8].

S22 and S22+ will also ensure you can always stay connected and collaborative. Through a partnership with Google, enjoy Google Duo[9] Live sharing[10] to view photos in Gallery with friends or write meeting notes with colleagues on Samsung Notes – even while you’re apart[11].

 

Design to Perfection and Built to Last

Both Galaxy S22 and S22+ feature the S Series’ iconic, fan-favourite Contour-Cut design that blends the camera seamlessly into the housing. To create a sleeker and more refined look, Samsung built both devices with a distinctive flat display, complete with a luxurious glass and haze finish. Now, the S Series camera housing is designed to match the colour of the device’s body with a slim and symmetric metal frame for a seamless look. The result is a balanced, unified design that’s modern, fashionable, and sleek. Both the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ are available in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, and Pink Gold[12].

 

And that stunning design is built to last: the Galaxy S22 Series presents Samsung’s most durable mobile devices yet. Galaxy S22 and S22+ are the first S Series models made with Armor Aluminium, so you can take your phone anywhere with peace of mind. The Galaxy S22 Series is also our first smartphones to feature new Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®+. The S22 Series devices are equipped with this tough glass on the front and back, so you can worry less about accidental drops.

But we know true durability is not just about hardware. As part of our commitment to giving users the best possible mobile performance and experience, the entire Galaxy S22 series will support up to four generations of Android OS upgrades[13]. Now millions of Galaxy users can increase the lifecycle of their smartphone even further without missing the latest security, productivity, and other exciting new features. Samsung will scale this effort across our product line-up to ensure you’re fully supported across your Galaxy ecosystem.

 

The Galaxy S Series also makes it easy to make your phone your own. You can use Samsung’s clean and intuitive One UI user interface to customise the look and feel of your home screen and widget. Tailor your icon colours, widgets, colour palette, and more to your personal preferences, and create a mobile experience that reflects who you are. One UI also gives you easy access to a wealth of emojis, GIFs, and stickers directly on your keyboard, so you can instantly communicate exactly how you feel without typing a single word.

Help Build a Sustainable Future through Galaxy for the Planet

As our most eco-conscious device ever, the Galaxy S22 Series pioneers mobile technology while supporting our planet. Plastic pollution poses serious threats to our environment, and discarded fishing nets are especially harmful to marine life and our oceans. By collaborating with leading organisations, Samsung helps recover discarded fishing nets[14] and transforms them into a high-performance material for our smartphones. This material – used in the Galaxy S22 Series’ key bracket – contains 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic[15] from discarded fishing nets. The Galaxy S22 Series also incorporates post-consumer recycled material in its speaker module, as well as the inner parts of the power and volume keys.

 

In addition to ocean-bound plastics, we also use recycled paper for the Galaxy S22’s packaging and include a protective film made from recycled plastic. Every case is also designed with UL-certified, eco-conscious materials – such as recycled post-consumer plastics or bio-based substances. These purposeful innovations are the latest example of Samsung’s commitment to doing more with less as part of Galaxy for the Planet.

Security You Can Trust

The Galaxy S22 Series is secured by Samsung’s powerful Knox Vault security platform, which includes a secure processor and memory that completely isolates sensitive data like your passwords, biometrics, or Blockchain keys from the phone’s main operating system. One UI’s privacy dashboard and Indicator make it easy to see which apps are accessing your data and camera, so you can decide whether to grant or deny permission to each app. The Galaxy S22 Series also introduces several new security features, including ARM micro architecture, which prevents cyberattacks that target your operating system and memory.

Plus, the Galaxy S22 Series brings you Samsung Wallet[16] – a seamless, convenient and secure experience to make everyday life easier. Samsung Wallet combines digital payment, ID, keys and asset management into one tool to simplify your routines, from showing your student ID to compiling travel documents before a flight.

 

Stay Connected with the Galaxy Ecosystem

Alongside the new S22 Series, Samsung is introducing an all new line of tablets and a pack of updated features for Galaxy Watch4 so that Galaxy users can stay connected in every aspect of their lives. Built for a new era of connectivity, Galaxy Tab S8 ­– including Tab S8, Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra – is Samsung’s most versatile line of tablets ever, built and designed to meet the ever-changing needs of those who work, study, play and create.
