Samsung acknowledges Galaxy S22 Ultra screen flickering issue, fix coming soon
Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 Ultra on February 9 and promised shipping will begin on February 25. Yet some users got their units early and some of those stumbled upon an unpleasant surprise - the screen started flickering in certain scenarios.
An official forum moderator replied to concerned users on Reddit acknowledging the issue. He also assured them a fix is coming soon.
If you have an Exynos #GalaxyS22Ultra pls check if your device is affected by this bug, too.— Golden Reviewer (@Golden_Reviewer) February 22, 2022

Seems to be a widespread issue now.

The issue occurs when the resolution is set at WQHD, and Screen mode is set to Natural. Once these options are enabled, the flicker can happen while playing YouTube videos or unlocking the device.
Our Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra review unit is also flickering, suggesting this not an isolated accident.
The moderator confirmed Samsung had already developed a fix, and will seed it soon. Until then, you can avoid using the WQHD resolution in Natural color mode to save yourself some flickering.
