Samsung S22 Ultra's 1TB model to arrive in select markets
Samsung is ready to launch its Galaxy S22 series of flagship smartphones on February 9. In a fresh development, tipster @Ice universe has claimed that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be offered with up to 1TB of internal storage but in select markets. According to the tip-off, the Chinese and Korean markets are "almost certain" to receive the 1TB model of S22 Ultra.
Why does this story matter?
- With the arrival of 4K and 8K video recording, heavy users need a lot of built-in storage. For reference, a five minute 8K recording will take up around 3GB of space.
- Hence, Samsung is likely to offer up to 1TB of internal storage on its top-of-the-line S22 Ultra model. Apple also provides 1TB storage option on its iPhone 13 Pro models.
The handset will have a 6.8-inch AMOLED display
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a punch-hole design with curved edges, a dedicated slot for S Pen, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The handset will bear a 6.8-inch QHD+ (1440x3080 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and up to 1,750-nits of peak brightness. It will come in shades of Burgundy, Green, Phantom Black, and Phantom White.
It will have a 108MP primary camera
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will sport a quad rear camera module comprising a 108MP (f/1.8) primary sensor with Super Clear Lens, a 12MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide lens, a 10MP (f/2.4) telephoto snapper with 3x optical zoom, and a 10MP (f/4.9) telephoto camera with 10x optical zoom support. For selfies and video calls, the handset will have a 40MP (f/2.2) front-facing snapper.
The phone will be fueled by an Exynos 2200 SoC
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will be powered by an Exynos 2200/Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. It will boot Android 12-based One UI 4.0 and house a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wired fast-charging support. For connectivity, it should offer support for Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6E, NFC, and 5G.
