Announcement. Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ - micro-flagship and flagship in its heyday

Samsung announced today (oops, alreadyyesterday) a fresh line of their flagships. Called which, of course, Galaxy S22. This news is about two younger smartphones of the line, about Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22+. They are almost twins. Only the first is smaller and the second is bigger.

Of course, these new smartphones are the developmentlast year's Samsung Galaxy S21 and Samsung Galaxy S21+. There are enough differences. The same cameras are pretty reworked. But the essence, and appearance - they are the same. In short, everything is good and expensive.

What is very curious, Samsung decided toreduce the appetites of the size of their flagships. And not only due to the thinning of the frames, but also by reducing the diagonals of the screen. Where it was 6.2″, it became 6.1″. And instead of 6.7″ now 6.6″. As a result, the length of the Galaxy S22 has decreased compared to the Galaxy S21 by almost 6 millimeters and has reached 146 mm! Microflagman right!

Unlike the older brother Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, the younger smartphones are far from being as brick-shaped, but they have much flatter screens. Which, in my opinion, is a big plus.
From all sides, the devices are protected by the latest Gorilla Glass Victus + super glass. From the side of the back, judging by what reviewers say, the glass is frosted and not slippery. This is good.

Mass of colors. Moreover, those that you see in this picture can be bought anywhere ...

... But these three colors are exclusive for their loved ones. If you want one of them, slap on Samsung.com and go nowhere else.

Iron. In our country, smartphones will work on a fresh Exynos 2200 chipset. In a number of other countries (in particular, in the States) - on the well-known Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Memory. Strictly 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent memory. Support for memory cards, of course, no.

The screens are 6.1″ and 6.6″ respectively. Matrix - Dynamic AMOLED 2X. Resolution - 1080 × 2400 (431 ppi) and 1080 × 2340 (390 ppi). Refresh rate up to 120Hz, ultra high brightness.

The battery capacity of the Galaxy S22 is so smallthat makes me really nervous. Only 3700 mAh. The Galaxy S22+ has a larger capacity, 4500 mAh. Charging is fast, but not excessive - 25 and 45 watts. You can also charge wirelessly - 15 watts. There are no chargers included.

The camera sets are identical.The front ones have a resolution of 10 MP. Behind the trio 50 + 12 + 10 MP. The main camera, wide-angle (without autofocus) and a triple telephoto lens with optical stabilization. Apparently, Samsung ISOCELL GN5 is used as the main sensor (it is also used in the recently announced Vivo iQOO 9 and Vivo iQOO 9 Pro, if I'm not confusing anything).

The fingerprint scanner is, of course, built into the screen. There is no standard audio output, of course. But there is protection against water and dust according to the IP68 class.

About money.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 will cost ₽79990 ($1070) and ₽84990 ($1140) for the 8+128GB and 8+256GB versions, respectively.

The Samsung Galaxy S22+ is noticeably more expensive. ₽94990 ($1270) and ₽99990 ($1340) for versions with the same amount of memory.

Smartphones have already been shown to reviewers.True, no one was allowed to work with them in detail. Therefore, so far all the texts and videos are extremely superficial. I hide a few reviews under the cat. Well, look for a complete collection of links to reviews on the pages of smartphones on our website (one, two).
