Samsung is known for launching new Galaxy Smartphones every January but this time things changed a little bit as something new wanted to make its debut into the Samsung Mobile World. Behold as the combination of S20 Note and S21 Ultra great features are now combined into a single smartphone which is now called S22 Ultra along with the regular S22 and S22+ which also comes power-packed in all the various departments. New colours are introduced in all the Galaxy S22 series of smartphones and some colours are worth beg, borrow or steal for sure!
Let's talk about the launch event of 2022 and thanks to an in-person event we get to meet all the other fellow tech journalists and influencers in real life. The venue was grand, the welcome was awesome, the event was fun and above all the new technology introduced was an innovation at its supreme best.
Along with the launch event, food and drinks there was a helicopter ride of the Steyn City in Johannesburg, South Africa. I got the chance to get on the flight to do so and use the new S22 to take some low light videos. The same is shared on my Instagram channel.
I have been a fan of the Note series and this one has a Spen just like the Note series hidden inside the smartphone. The touch and feel of the device are enhanced to the topmost premium quality possible. The features are so much that I can continue to write a novel on the same. The white and Burgundy colours are going to be most sold for sure.
Just look at the powerful camera on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. 40MP selfie camera is never heard before in any Samsung device and with a quad-camera setup, the device features 12MP ultra-wide, 108 MP wide-angle, 10MP 3x optical zoom telephoto camera, and 10MP 10x optical zoom telephoto camera too. The optical image videography is something to look forward to also. It's a device for all vertical format content creators to immediately go on IG reels, YT stories and Tik Tok videos. Even Youtube is definitely achievable without the need of a gimbal but you just need a phone stand and remote will be the Spen to check on all the settings etc. The brightness levels are also increased to 1750 nits in both Ultra and Plus models of S22. With a 5000mAh battery, this can last up to 81 hours as claimed by Samsung and comes with 45W superfast charging too.
The other Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ feature a 10MP front selfie camera whereas the rear camera is a 12MP ultra-wide, 50MP wide-angle and 10MP telephoto camera with 30x space zoom. S22+ features a 4500mAh battery with 45W superfast charging to last 69 hours whereas S22 has 3700mAh with 25W superfast charging to last 54 hours max. The RAM is 8GB on both these devices with 256GB ROM powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor which is 4nm.
The price which has been decided by Samsung South Africa during the initial launch offer is S22 Ultra is ZAR 28999 (256GB) comes with Free Galaxy Buds Pro (worth ZAR 3999) during the pre-launch offer. S22 (256GB) is priced at ZAR 19999 and S22+ (256GB) at ZAR 22999 and both comes with a pre-launch offer of Galaxy Buds Live (ZAR 1999). The devices will be available in South Africa from 11 March 2022 onwards and this time they are planning to set up experience zones in various malls.
The best part is that you can trade in your old devices if they switch ON for the awesome trade-in giving up to ZAR 10000 cashback programs from Samsung to buy these amazing Galaxy S22 series devices. If you have ZAR 13000, then I would suggest you go for Samsung S22+, if ZAR 10000 then go for S22 and if you have ZAR 18999 then go for the best of the best S22 Ultra which I also wish to go for myself. Pre-order already started today on 10-Feb-22 what are you waiting for? Go for it!
The event didn't end with just the Galaxy Smartphones launch but expanded into the Galaxy Tab S8 series range of Tablets which are awesomeness at its best too. They are definitely going to replace the laptop market with their Spen feature and will be a big competition to the Surface tablets and even iPad Pro with Apple pencil. More on them in another blog post.
I am looking forward to getting a review unit soon and this is my 200th post for Samsung so I wanted to give it my touch to make it extra special as they made me feel extra special with the Helicopter ride and invite me to the launch event which was amazingly great.
