After a few rumors on the interwebs, Samsung has now quietly revised the specifications sheet for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus, following the unveiling of the Galaxy S22 series last week. Initially, the smartphone manufacturer had claimed that both devices supported 10-120Hz variable refresh rates, leading us to believe that they were equipped with Low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) panels.

According to the updated spec sheet on Samsung’s website, the devices will have a variable refresh rate of 48–120Hz instead of the earlier advertised 10-120Hz, similar to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus.

Ross Young, the CEO of DSCC, was the first to point out this development, revealing that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus are equipped with LTPS panels that support a variable refresh rate of 48–120 Hz.

Samsung’s LTPS panels on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus have reportedly reached refresh rates of less than 48Hz in some tests. As a result, even though the production models don’t support 10-120Hz variable refresh rates, Samsung probably used the lower variable refresh rate figures in its initial marketing material. The spec sheet on Samsung’s website has since been updated to reflect the correct 48-120Hz refresh rate statistics.

Samsung did not immediately to Techspace Africa’s request for comment.

This new development makes the regular Galaxy S22 look very boring in terms of improvement from last year, the cut battery life, and now the same display? It does, however, have a peak brightness of 1,750 nits which is better than its predecessor.

The bigger Galaxy S22 Ultra does have an LTPO screen. In fact, it has an LTPO 2.0 panel, which lets you change the refresh rate from 1 to 120Hz. That’s a big change from the LTPO panel on its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which had a 10-120Hz variable refresh rate.
