The Galaxy S22 Ultra is Samsung’s first true successor to the Galaxy Note series. Unlike its predecessor that did support the S Pen, the new handset has as integrated S Pen slot. Is this, however, the only distinction between the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Galaxy S21 Ultra? Obviously not.
There is a lot to discuss when it comes to these two devices, and there are some significant differences that may make upgrading from the older S21 Ultra to the new model worthwhile. This comparison of the specs of the latest top-tier flagships from the S series will aid in determining the differences. Let’s check it out:
The display specs of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Galaxy S21 Ultra are identical. Both smartphones feature 6.8-inch displays with Quad HD+ resolution and HDR10+ certification. Both support the S Pen and have LTPO AMOLED displays with an adjustable refresh rate of 1 to 120Hz. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra wins because to its slightly higher brightness and superior Gorilla Glass Victus Plus protection, but these are minor differences that you are unlikely to notice.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is powered by either the Exynos 2200 with AMD or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, depending on the region. There are various models available, with the base model offering 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage and the top range model offering 12GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage. None of the variants offer microSD support.
On the other hand, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 processor powers the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, depending on the region. There are 12GB or 16GB of RAM options, as well as up to 512GB of storage. There isn’t any microSD slot.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and S21 Ultra both have the same camera. They have a 108-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilisation, a 10-megapixel periscope sensor with 10x optical zoom, a 10-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, a 12-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 40-megapixel selfie camera.
Both smartphones have the same battery capacity, which is 5,000mAh. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, will most likely last longer because to its more efficient processor. It also supports 45W rapid charging, albeit there will be no plug included in the box. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, on the other hand, allows both rapid and wireless charging. It, too, does not come with a charger.
The starting price of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in India is Rs 109,999. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra costs at Rs 99,000 in the country. However, the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra remains a better choice for everyone.
