Samsung confirms February launch event, promises a "noteworthy" Galaxy S22 Ultra

20 January 2022
The wordplay is obviously meant to invoke a merging of Note and S lines.

Not mean to be pessimistic, the 60Hz display do not even bother me. The only two things I concern with current smartphone is IP68 rating, OIS and the price.

If you want to buy it, surely you can but there's no use buying it even when you're using an S10.

little bit of this little bit of that - no innovation at all, instead backward steps NO SD Card and its a Note - how good is that if you cannot port and store the Notes - someone really needs to think about functions not features - i get the wired phono but there are some many options with plugs such functions make you pay more a little bit more of something you dont need/notice forget it good luck Samsung, join the Nokia, Sony, NEC, Blackberry, Motorola members club soon!

No. That's very, very likely not going to happen. They might increase the price by 100 euros, but that'll be it.

The S21 Ultra was €1,249 at launch.

In Italy you can get samsung flagships at -30% just by wiating for about 8 weeks.

Many of you outtahere complaining of overheating issues,
Kept me 🤔 w 💭....
Do you actually play games with your $1,000+ phones(talkless of heavy gaming) when you are all time "2_4_7" on gsmarena(waiting for the next article to arrive).
Even before the article arrives,U ARE ALREADY THERE AT IT'S COMMENT SECTION...

Yet you say "EXYNOS SUCKS"...definitely gsmarena makes your phone overheats.

Anonymous, 21 Jan 2022The future is wireless. Accept itThe thing is, that future is not now.

In earlier years of tech, a feature would be removed only after it is obsolete for good. For example, optical media. There is no good reason to use them anymore, USB drives, internet etc. are much better alternatives to optical media. Thus, it is totally okay to remove optical drives.

However, the same is not true for wired audio and microSD slot. Wireless audio still has drawbacks that wired audio does not, audio latency and the need to recharge headphones to name a few. microSD can extend a phone's useful life by adding more storage to it as time goes on, something that phones without a microSD slot cannot do yet.

In short: I am disappointed in phone makers, because they remove features that, as of their removal, have alternatives with very real drawbacks. Earlier on, features would be removed only if they had good alternatives.

Finally a true flagship device from Samsung that worth buying. Something that is not like a midrange phone on steroid

So, how much is this going to cost? 2000€ ? Given how inflated the price of S21 Ultra was and adding all the "Note" goodies like S-Pen and more, they'll surely charge ridiculous money for it. And dragged lower models along with it because they can't have that massive gap between them in price. And then they'll wonder why no one buys them...

Anonymous, 21 Jan 2022Provide Snapdragon variant on my region!!! Not only crappynos!!!agree...and zero shutter lag

Yeah the most noteworthy, as if for the past months or so we aren't bombarded with intentional leaks already. Better camera? Faster processor? Better display? What else? Isn't it every year we just get the same thing with minor improvements.
