The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the new kid on the block from Samsung, and everything about this device has been refreshed to get more out of it. There is a definite Galaxy Note-like outlook about the Ultra variant, especially since it has a slot for the S Pen, which is on the bottom-left. Yes, the rumours were true. Even at the back, the cameras are laid out in an elegant manner, as the quad rear sensors have been spaced out with focus on keeping the design clean. The screen is the biggest of the three on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which translates into a thicker device at 8.9mm and heavy as well at 229 grams.

Samsung Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S22+ vs Galaxy S22 Ultra: Hardware

Samsung is using top-end hardware for its flagship series once again. The company has powered all three devices with a 4nm chipset without disclosing if it is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or its own Exynos 2200 SoC. But what we do know is that Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22+ have been offered with 8GB RAM but with the storage options of 128GB and 256GB, which sadly is not expandable.

With the Galaxy S22 Ultra you have multiple variants with 8GB and 12GB RAM. While the storage options for buyers start from 128GB, and go up to a whopping 1TB this year. The other big difference with the Ultra model is the S Pen support for the first time. It even has a slot to house the Samsung stylus.

Cameras are another department where the Samsung Galaxy S22 series gets some big upgrades.

While on the front, they come with a 10-megapixel shooter.

The upgrades are even more impressive with the Galaxy S22 Ultra which comes equipped with a quad rear camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, an 108-megapixel sensor, 10-megapixel telephoto sensor and another 10-megapixel telephoto sensor. For selfies, this variant gets a 40-megapixel camera.

Rest assured, the cameras are expected to match the best in the market, and we are excited to see what Samsung has to offer this year.

And the last aspect that we would like to cover in this comparison is battery. The Galaxy S22 comes with a 3700mAh battery with support for 25W wired charging and 15W wireless charging. Samsung is offering a bigger 4500mAh unit on the Galaxy S22+ which supports 45W wired fast charging and 15W fast wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is Samsung's ultra-flagship offering for 2022. It comes with a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone also houses an S-Pen slot, as most rumours had hinted since last year. (Image: Samsung)

Moving to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the brighter display and a bigger screen size has invariably resulted in use of a 5000mAh battery which gets 45W wired fast charging and 15W wireless charging support.

Samsung Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S22+ vs Galaxy S22 Ultra: What we think

After looking at the detailed set of features, it is easy to see how Samsung is going up against other flagships with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The other variants of this series make up for the numbers in an impressive fashion, and give buyers more choices, without compromising on performance or quality in any way. We are eager to see how these devices fare against the other premium models that you have in the market.
