MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Feb.09, 2022(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Samsung Electronics Canada today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, merging the power of the Galaxy Note series with the pro-grade camera and performance of the Galaxy S series to set a new standard for premium mobile technology. Featuring a built-in S Pen, advanced Nightography and video capabilities, and battery life that lasts over a day1, Galaxy S22 Ultra is the most powerful Ultra device from Samsung to date.
“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 Galaxy 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.”
The Most Powerful Samsung Galaxy S Series Phone YetFor the first time ever, Note users’ favourite built-in S Pen is coming to a Galaxy S series device2 — and it’s the fastest, most responsive S Pen we’ve ever made. With 70% lower latency3 you can write and draw naturally on the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s expansive screen, delivering new ways to unleash.
With seamlessly integrated camera lenses and a sleek metal frame that creates a mirrored effect, Galaxy S22 Ultra both feels and looks premium. Luxurious glass and haze finishing adds an elegant touch to the reimagined linear, floating layout – complete with Galaxy Note’s iconic sharp angles – all encased in a durable, streamlined design.
Whether you’re viewing content or creating your own, Galaxy S22 Ultra’s immersive 6.8-inch4, Dynamic AMOLED 2x adaptive 120Hz display brings everything to life in stunning detail with a peak brightness of 1,750nit5. Plus, Vision Booster technology enables Galaxy S22 Ultra to intelligently adjust brightness throughout the day for an impressive viewing experience – even in bright sunlight.

Capture Stunning Photos and Videos, Day or NightWith Galaxy S22 Ultra, you can capture post-worthy footage regardless of lighting conditions. With Advanced Nightography, you can snag crisp, clear video – with both the front and back cameras – day or night. Built with a 2.4um pixel sensor6, the Super Clear Glass lens captures more light and data to optimize video quality for smoother and clearer nighttime video without flares. Video Auto Framing also ensures your camera captures exactly who you want — whether that’s one person or ten7.
And with zooming capabilities that get you 100x closer to the action8, Galaxy S22 Ultra isn’t just the most powerful camera from Samsung yet, it’s also the smartest9. Packed with new AI supported features like the enhanced Portrait Mode, Galaxy S22 Ultra is built to capture impressive photos regardless of whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer.
Galaxy S22 Ultra also offers exclusive access to the Expert RAW app10, delivering a comprehensive suite of in-camera editing tools for a DSLR-like experience. With the ability to save photos in RAW format up to 16bit, you can take control over your edits with access to more data. And just like a DSLR camera, you can brighten or darken your images with ISO settings and shutter speed, adjust the white balance to appear more warm or cool, and manually focus on your desired subject for even more creative control.
Unbridled Power and Performance Built for the most productive workdays, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is equipped with the latest 4nm processor, capable of powering advanced Samsung AI and ML processing. It also features Wi-Fi 6E connectivity up to twice as fast as Wi-Fi 611 — this means you can enjoy unrivaled performance on all your most-used apps whether gaming, streaming, or working12.
In addition, Galaxy S22 Ultra delivers all-day intelligent battery13 paired with 45W super-fast charging — you can record 50 minutes of video after just a 10-minute charge14.
Security You Can Trust The Galaxy S22 Ultra is secured by the powerful Samsung Knox Vault security platform, which includes a secure processor and memory that isolates sensitive data like your passwords, biometrics or Blockchain keys from the phone’s main operating system. One UI’s privacy Permission Usage and Mic/Cam sensor Indicator make it easy to see which apps are accessing your data and camera, so you can decide whether to grant or deny permission to each app. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also introduces several new security features —including the ARM micro architecture — which helps to prevent cyberattacks that target your operating system and memory.
Plus, the Galaxy S22 Ultra brings you Samsung Wallet15 – a seamless, convenient, and secure experience to make everyday life easier. Samsung Wallet combines digital payment, ID, keys and digital asset management into one tool to simplify your routine, from showing your student ID to compiling travel documents before a flight.
Connect Seamlessly Between your Galaxy Devices Alongside the Galaxy S22 Ultra and other Galaxy S22 series devices, Samsung is introducing an all-new line of tablets and a pack of updated features for Samsung Galaxy Watch4, so Galaxy users can stay connected in every aspect of their lives. Built for a new era of connectivity, Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series – including Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra – is the most versatile line of tablets yet from Samsung, built and designed to meet the ever-changing needs of those who work, study, play and create.
