Galaxy S22 and S22+: Bold and dynamic with just the right soul!

February 9, 2022

Samsung’s S22 line has become official today, with UAE availability from the 25th of Feb onwards. This is an impressive line-up with the Galaxy S22 and S22+ being a key part of the trio. Built with a bold, sustainably conscious design, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are designed to be both beautiful and environmentally conscious.

Streaming a movie or your favorite show will look even better on Galaxy S22 and S22+’s beautiful displays. Both devices come equipped with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, designed for the best in gaming and watching. Whether you choose Galaxy S22’s premium 6.1-inch display or Galaxy S22+’s 6.6-inch , each screen is built with intelligent Vision Booster technology that automatically adjusts the display to the lighting around you and enhances the color 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 1,300nits while S22+ features a peak 1,750nits.

Next-level camera experiences are a key highlight on the Galaxy S22 and S22+. With the Galaxy S22 series’ revolutionary new Nightography features – like the 23% larger sensor than S21 and S21+ and Adaptive Pixel technology – your camera is designed to let in more light, draw out details, and capture colors that make your content pop, even in the dark . 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 high quality shots. When you’re capturing videos with friends, the new Auto-Framing 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 minimizes 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 that takes 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 favorite furry friend: Galaxy S22/S22+’s new Portrait mode helps prevent pet hair from blending into the background, so you always get the best shot of your pet.

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 the brand’s most advanced AI and ML processing to date, delivering unrivaled performance for all streaming and productivity needs. What’s more, network behavior 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 lightning-fast processor demands power that can keep pace. Galaxy S22 is built with a robust all-day battery 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 charge. Galaxy S22+ also offers 45W super-fast charging, so you don’t have to wait when your power is running low.

S22 and S22+ will also ensure you can always stay connected and collaborative. Enjoy Google Duo  live sharing  to view photos in Gallery with friends or write meeting notes with colleagues on Samsung Notes – even while you’re apart.

Both Galaxy S22 and S22+ feature the S series’ iconic, fan-favorite 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 color 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.

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 Aluminum – the brand’s strongest aluminum frame, so you can take your phone anywhere with peace of mind. The Galaxy S22 series is also the 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. The entire Galaxy S22 series will be supported by up to four generations of Android OS upgrades. This allows Galaxy users to take advantage of the latest security, productivity and other exciting new features, for longer.

Help Build a Sustainable Future through Galaxy for the Planet

Positioned as Samsung’s 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 organizations, Samsung helps recover discarded fishing nets  and transforms them into a high-performance material for our smartphones. This material – used in the Galaxy S22 series’ component, key bracket – contains 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic  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 use 100% recycled paper for the Galaxy S22’s packaging and include a protective film made from recycled plastic. Every smartphone 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.

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 helps prevent cyberattacks that target your operating system and memory.

Alongside the new S22 series, Samsung is introducing an all new line of tablets. Built for a new era of connectivity, Galaxy Tab S8 series – 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.

Galaxy S22/22+ will be available in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, and Pink Gold in 128GB and 256GB models with 8GB RAM.
