Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra specs: New leak mentions a faster charging rate
Samsung will likely announce the Galaxy S22 series in a few weeks, so it is not surprising that more details about the Galaxy S22 Ultra have already leaked. And a new report indicates the high-end smartphone model will receive a substantial upgrade in terms of fast charging.
The latest report on Galaxy S22 Ultra comes from well-known leaker Ishan Agarwal through MySmartPrice. The device is expected to offer a 5000mAh battery capacity similar to its predecessor. But Samsung will reportedly upgrade the device by increasing its wired fast charging rate to 45W from 25W. But its wireless charging capacity is expected to remain at 15W.
The same report reiterates what Samsung fans already heard about the Galaxy S22 Ultra cameras. It is expected to sport a 108MP main camera, along with a 12MP ultra-wide sensor on the rear. But the new leak suggests both 10MP cameras will serve as telephoto lenses with 3x and 10x optical zoom. For selfies, the device will reportedly offer a 40MP camera on the front.
Samsung fans may also be familiar with the reported Galaxy S22 Ultra display specs because they are almost identical to Galaxy S21 Ultra’s. The upcoming device is rumored to sport a 6.8-inch 2X Dynamic AMOLED panel with 2K resolution (1440 x 3088 pixels). The same report said the display can function with a 1Hz to 120Hz refresh rate, suggesting the device might support an adaptive refresh rate.
Previous reports have shared renders and even live photos of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and they are all hinting at a meaningful redesign. This explains why the leaked dimensions of the upcoming device are slightly different from Galaxy S21 Ultra. The reported measurements of Galaxy S22 Ultra are 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm. Galaxy S21 Ultra’s dimensions were 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9 mm.
For the device’s protection, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is still expected to be certified with an IP68 rating. Samsung will also reportedly use Gorilla Glass Victus+, possibly on the front and back of the device.
The latest leak echoes a previous report that the Galaxy S22 Ultra S Pen will have a much-improved latency at 2.8 milliseconds. The device is also purportedly equipped with dual speakers developed by AKG and with support for Dolby Atmos. With the Galaxy S22 series expected to be released next month, the upcoming phones are very likely to ship with Android 12 and One UI 4.
