Find out more about the Samsung Galaxy S22 specifications and features, as we break them down in further detail below.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Design & Display

Samsung has put display development front and centre with the Galaxy S22, which sports a 6.1-inch Infinity-O Display, equipped with Dynamic AMOLED 2X and Vision Booster tech to improve outdoor visibility, to protect against bright glare. There’s an 87.4% screen-to-body ratio, so bezels are subtle too, and the screen is only interrupted by the punch hole housing the front camera.


The display offers a 120Hz refresh rate, so you can expect a cinematic viewing experience, whether your priority is scrolling through socials, watching YouTube clips or gaming on the go. As for design, it has an aluminium frame with smoothly curved edges, making it both comfortable to hold and easy to grip. Coated in Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the front and back, this device is as durable as it is stylish, and with an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, it can easily withstand the occasional drop or splash.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S22 features a triple-lens camera system, comprising of a 50MP wide lens, 10MP telephoto lens and third 12MP ultra-wide lens. Not to mention, the camera on this device can achieve up to 30x Space Zoom, so you can hone in on your subject from a distance, without sacrificing the quality of your image.

You’ll find all the photography software you’d hope for, including Night Mode, Portrait Mode and also what Samsung is calling Nightography. Powered by a sensor that’s 25% larger, the intelligent camera setup can shoot beautifully balanced, detailed images in low light – including crisp portraits.


There’s a range of different videography features to unpack too – like Auto Framing, which keeps the camera focused and centered on a person or object, even if it moves around in the frame. On top of this, you can now flick easily between your front and rear cameras, or even from one lens to another with Director’s View, resulting in professional-grade footage.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Power

This series also debuts the fastest ever chip on a Galaxy smartphone, with a 4nm processor, enabling a super smooth, efficient performance. It’s the powerful chipset that makes many of the prominent features on this device possible, like dual recording and intelligent battery distribution. The device is 5G Ready, so there’s no doubt that this smartphone can handle intensive multi-tasking on advanced apps with ease, as well as lag-free streaming and instant downloads.


The Galaxy S22 arrives with One UI 4.1 installed and running, which is based on Android 12 and overlaid with Samsung’s unique interface. This operating system is designed to be as intuitive as possible, so even those making the switch from other Android or Apple devices can navigate settings and apps with ease.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Battery

The 3700mAh battery on board will learn from your smartphone habits and prioritise battery life in line with them to help you make the most of a single charge. In fact, according to the manufacturer, the handset can last well over 24 hours, depending on your usage and environment.


There’ll be no need to plug in overnight either, thanks to 25W Super Fast Charging which is available with the relevant adapter (sold separately). Plus, if your Galaxy Buds are running low, you can transfer some power from the Galaxy S22 to your headphones with Wireless PowerShare, as long as you’ve got at least 30%.
