Specifications, price and release date Australia

Mobile device makers like Samsung have backed themselves into a bit of a corner. For one thing, each version is hailed as the only phone you’ll ever need. On the other hand, their main goal is to sell the latest and greatest year after year. So how do they reconcile this conflict inherent in marketing philosophies? Simple. Raise the bar, perfect upon perfection, and pack all the fan-favorite features of the series into a supremely sleek form factor, like with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

“The S22 Ultra brings together the best of the S Series and Note DNA in an all-new experience. The built-in S-Pen is designed to unlock new possibilities for productivity and creativity,” said Garry McGregor, Vice President of the mobile division of Samsung Electronics Australia.

“We know that Australians’ use of smartphones has increased by 40% after another year of extended pandemic life. Because of this and extended work-from-home agreements, 44% of people who buy a new smartphone buy premium products because they need more capable devices.

Along with introducing the S-Pen outside of the Note series, an incredibly clear display, world-class technical grunt thanks to the Galaxy’s fastest chip, plus battery life in spades, like predictably, Samsung continues to wage war with its camera.

Night photography is the “next frontier,” says Vice President Garry McGregor. Naturally, the South Korean tech giant has invested considerable R&D into what the manufacturer has now dubbed “noctography” – setting itself apart from the conversation that has long been dominated by Apple, Google and Huawei.

Armed with a 2.4um pixel sensor – the largest pixel sensor ever designed by Samsung – the Galaxy S22 Ultra effectively offers the everyday gambler the ability to capture pro-quality snapshots in all conditions. ‘lighting. A bigger sensor means more light and more data, which means the phone can optimize lighting and detail like never before without any flares.

“With new AI-supported features like Portrait Mode, Galaxy S22 Ultra is designed to make every photo look professional. With the S22 Ultra’s robust smart camera capabilities, your phone does the heavy lifting, so you’ll always capture photos and videos in any light.

“People use their smartphones to escape through entertainment and other leisure activities. Having a device that powers both work and play has never been more important.”

Garry McGregor, vice president of the mobile division of Samsung Electronics Australia.
