Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus Overview:
Design and Display
Unlike the Galaxy S22 Ultra, this year’s S22 and S22 Plus don’t bring any significant changes in their design. Still, they have smaller form factors compared to their respective predecessors.
That’s because Samsung has reduced the screen size on both phones by a marginal 0.1-inch. Vanilla S22 has a 6.1-inch screen, whereas the S22 Plus sports a 6.6-inch panel. The latter sports a peak brightness of 1,750 nits while the former has a peak of 1,300 nits. Also, the bezels are a lot more symmetrical now.
Here, both are FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X panels with a 120Hz variable refresh rate. The touch-sampling rate reaches up to 240Hz in game mode.
Like the Ultra model, they have Vision Booster technology that adjusts the light intensity based on the ambient condition. These handsets also have IP68 certifications against dust and water damage.
Over on the back, they have the same camera modules that extend out of the metal frames. Likewise, there’s Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection on the rear and the front of the devices. Similarly, Samsung offers the S22 and S22 Plus in Phantom Black, Phantom White, Green, and Pink Gold color. However, the Green color variant is not available in Nepal.
Moving on, Samsung ships the S22 and S22 Plus with two processors—either Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Exynos 2200, depending on the region. Unlike previous editions, the Nepali market is getting the Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S22 Series. Anyway, both chipset variants are coupled with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

At the back, Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus both flaunt a triple camera setup. They now use a new 50MP primary sensor with 23% bigger pixels than last year’s 12MP module. A bigger pixel can capture more light, enhancing the overall quality of the image. Likewise, you also get 12MP ultrawide and a 10MP telephoto lens.
The primary and telephoto lenses come with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Like S22 Ultra, they are powered by Video Digital Image Stabilization (VDIS) technology that minimizes vibrations of the video even when you’re moving. Both devices have a 10MP selfie camera on the front.
Samsung also mentions the use of Super Clear Glass on the camera module to reduce lens flare. However, it’s not clear if it’s only on the primary lens or the whole setup.
On the software front, there is now a new feature called “Adaptive Pixel” that switches between 50MP and 12MP based on the lighting condition. It can even shoot at both modes and combine two pictures for higher quality. There is also something called “Detail Enhancer” for the 50MP model.
Moreover, there’s the auto-framing feature that detects and tracks up to ten people and automatically adjusts the camera focus. Other features include Object Remover, Auto Framing, Director’s View, and more.
