New Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ Deliver Revolutionary Camera Experiences, Day and Night
Create, capture, and share your best moments with pro-grade AI camera features on the latest Galaxy S series
Samsung Electronics Canada today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22+, delivering dynamic cameras and advanced intelligent image processing to power creativity and make every moment epic. Built with a bold, sustainably conscious design, the latest devices from the Galaxy S series are not only beautiful, but environmentally conscious.
“Our smartphone cameras have transformed the way we create, share, and communicate. Through photos and videos, we express ourselves and connect with the people we care about,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business. “That’s why we focused on designing our latest Galaxy S series devices with groundbreaking camera capabilities that work day and night, powered by our best mobile performance yet.”
Own the Night with the Most Intelligent Camera from Samsung Yet
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are designed to deliver next-level camera experiences so people can connect and share wherever they are. With revolutionary new Nightography features like the 23% larger sensor and Adaptive Pixel technology, your camera is designed to let in more light, draw out more details and capture more colours so your content pops – even in the dark. Both Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are built with a powerful 50MP main camera, a 10MP tele-lens, and a 12MP ultra-wide lens for professional-worthy shots.
And when you’re taking videos with friends, the new Auto Framing feature can detect and track up to 10 people, automatically adjusting focus to capture everyone clearly. Both devices are powered by advanced VDIS technology that minimizes vibrations for smooth, sharp footage, even when you’re on the move.
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are also equipped with the latest Samsung AI technology, bringing your photos to the next level. Taking photos in Portrait Mode is easier now easy with the new AI Stereo Depth Map, and the tiniest details appear crisp and clear thanks to the sophisticated AI algorithm. The new Portrait mode even prevents pet hair from blending into the background to help you get the best shot of your favourite furry friends.
Power and Performance that Keep up with your Life
From work to home, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are designed to power through even the busiest days, thanks to the first-ever 4nm processor on a Galaxy smartphone. It powers our most advanced AI and ML processing to date, delivering superb performance and productivity experiences. What’s more, network behaviour analysis streamlines performance by automatically detecting which app you’re using and directing the most power there. Streaming, surfing the web, and navigating apps is now super-smooth.
A lightning-fast processor demands power that can keep pace, which is why the Galaxy S22 is built with a robust all-day battery and 25W fast charging. The powerful Galaxy S22+ battery can last even longer than a day on a single charge, and thanks to 45W super-fast charging, you don’t have to slow down when your power is running low.
Streaming a movie or show looks even better on beautiful Dynamic AMOLED 2x adaptive 120Hz displays on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ – ideal for gaming and watching your favourite content. Whether you choose the Galaxy S22’s premium 6.1-inch display or the 6.6-inch display on Galaxy S22+, each screen is built with intelligent Vision Booster technology that automatically adjusts to the lighting around you and enhances colour contrast for the best possible view. Plus, hardware performance enhancements have improved display brightness – Galaxy S22 has a peak brightness of 1,300nit while Galaxy S22+ features a peak 1,750nit.
Galaxy S22 and S22+ also ensure you can always stay connected and collaborative. Through our partnership with Google, you can enjoy Google Duo live sharing to view photos in Gallery with friends or write meeting notes with colleagues on Samsung Notes – even while you’re apart.
Design to Perfection and Built to Last
Both Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ feature the Galaxy S series’ iconic, fan-favourite Contour-Cut design, paired with a distinctive flat display and luxurious glass and haze finish. The camera housing is designed to match the colour of the device’s body, and the slim and symmetric metal frame lends to an overall seamless look. The result is a balanced, unified design that’s modern, fashionable, and sleek.
And that stunning design is built to last: the Galaxy S22 series devices are the most durable mobile devices yet from Samsung. Made with Armor Aluminum – our strongest aluminum frame – and new Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®+ on the front and back, you can take your phone with you with peace of mind and worry less about accidental drops.
The latest from the Galaxy S series also make it easy to make your phone your own. You can use the clean and intuitive new Samsung One UI user interface to customize the look and feel of your home screen. Tailor your icons, widgets, colour palettes and more to your personal preferences for a personalized mobile experience that reflects who you are. One UI also gives you easy access to a wealth of emojis, GIFs, and stickers directly on your keyboard, so you can instantly communicate exactly how you feel without typing a single word.
Help Build a Sustainable Future through Galaxy for the Planet
As part of Galaxy for the Planet, the Galaxy S22 series is a prime example of how Galaxy technology can positively contribute to a more sustainable future. Plastic pollution poses serious threats to our environment, and discarded fishing nets are especially harmful to marine life and our oceans. By collaborating with leading organizations, Samsung helps recover discarded fishing nets and transforms them into a high-performance material for our smartphones. This material – used in the Galaxy S22 series – contains 20% recycled ocean-bound plastic from discarded fishing nets. The Galaxy S22 series also incorporates post-consumer recycled material in its speaker module, as well as within the inner parts of the power and volume keys.
In addition to recycled ocean-bound plastics, we use 100% recycled paper for the Galaxy S22 series’ packaging and include a protective film made from recycled plastic. Every smartphone case is also designed with UL-certified, eco-conscious materials – such as recycled post-consumer plastics or bio-based substances. These purposeful innovations are the latest example of the commitment from Samsung to doing more with less as part of Galaxy for the Planet.
Security You Can Trust
Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are 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 dashboard and 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. Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ also introduce several new security features – including the ARM micro architecture – which helps prevent cyberattacks that target your operating system and memory.
Plus, Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ bring you Samsung Wallet – 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 Galaxy S22 series smartphones, Samsung is introducing an all-new line of tablets and a pack of updated features for Galaxy Watch4 so Galaxy users can stay connected in every aspect of their lives. Built for a new era of connectivity, Galaxy Tab S8 series – including Tab S8, Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra – is the most versatile line of tablets ever from Samsung, built and designed to meet the ever-changing needs of those who work, study, play and create.
