“At Samsung, we constantly push ourselves to raise the bar on our most premium devices,” said TM Roh, President, and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business. “Galaxy S22 Ultra takes the beloved functionality of the Galaxy Note and the most celebrated aspects of the S Series and merges them for a truly unique mobile experience. This is a leap forward for mobile technology, setting a new standard for what a smartphone can be.”

Samsung has unveiled Galaxy S22 Ultra, merging the best of two smartphone legacies – the famous power of the Note Series and the pro-grade camera and performance of the S Series – to set a pioneering standard for premium smartphones. Featuring a built-in S Pen, advanced Nightography and video capabilities, and battery life that lasts over a day, Galaxy S22 Ultra is the most powerful Ultra device Samsung has ever created.
