Samsung has finally hosted its first big Unpacked galaxy presentation of 2022, following weeks of rumours, and has introduced three new smartphones and three new tablets. It didn’t introduce a new smartwatch, but it did update its Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Classic with a slew of new health and wellness features.
Here’s all you need to know about Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 smartphones and tablets.
Galaxy S22 Ultra
Samsung’s latest “best of the best” flagship smartphone is the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
It’s noteworthy because, in addition to boasting the most cutting-edge features of any new Samsung smartphone, it also has the power and productivity features formerly reserved for Samsung’s Note series. That’s correct; it’s got a new low-latency S Pen built-in. (This also implies that Samsung is discontinuing the Note line.)
The Galaxy S22 Ultra has the largest AMOLED display (6.8 inches), the largest battery (5,000mAh), the greatest and most competent camera (now is with 108-megapixel wide angles, capable of shooting 8K video, 100x zoom, and a bunch of AI-driven features), and the best built-in speaker system, with support for Dolby Atmos, among Samsung’s new smartphones (which you can check out below).
It also has the world’s first 4.0-nanometer CPU in a smartphone.
Price and Availability: The Galaxy S22 Ultra will be on sale on Friday (February 9) and available everywhere on February 25. It will cost $1,200, to begin with.

In many aspects, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ are comparable to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. They share the same 4nm CPU, AMOLED display (although smaller), and most camera features. The Galaxy S22 and S22+ vary primarily because they are smaller, have smaller batteries, and lack a built-in S Pen.
The Galaxy S22 and S22+ feature the same camera systems as the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Still, they don’t have the 108MP wide-angle lens (instead, they have 50MP), meaning they can’t snap as high-resolution photographs and don’t have the same superior autofocusing capabilities.
The main changes between the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are their sizes, battery life, and charging rates (and price, of course). The Galaxy S22 features a 6.1-inch display and a 3,700mAh battery, while the Galaxy S22+ features a 6.6-inch display and a 4,500mAh battery. Both charge at a maximum of 15 watts wirelessly. The S22+, like the Ultra, can charge at 45 watts when wired, but the S22 can only charge at 25 watts.
The Galaxy S22 and S22+ will be available for pre-order beginning on February 9 and worldwide on February 25. The Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will be available for $800 and $1,000, respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, S8+, and S8 Ultra are tablet computers from Samsung.
Samsung has unveiled its new top tablet line, which includes three models: the Galaxy Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra, similar to its new smartphone line. All three are noteworthy since they’re far more powerful and attractive than previous Samsung tablets – it appears that Samsung is finally producing higher-end tablets that can compete with Apple’s iPad lineup.
All three Tab S8 tablets include the same fast 4nm CPU (exactly like the company’s latest smartphones), 120Hz screens (ideal for gaming), 5G compatibility, and an S Pen. The S8 Ultra is the most advanced camera system in the new Galaxy Tab S8 series, with 12MP wide and ultra-wide lenses (the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ only have the 12MP ultra-wide lens). It’s also Samsung’s largest tablet (with a 14.6″ AMOLED display), super-thin bezels, and most sophisticated camera with 12MP wide and ultra-wide lenses (the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ only have the 12MP ultra-wide lens). It’s the closest thing Samsung has ever offered to Apple’s iPad Pro models, with a complete keyboard and pen attachments.
With 11″ and 12.6″ screens, the Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8+ are smaller than the Tab S8 Ultra. The Tab S8+ feels like a good compromise between the two other versions since it has the same Super AMOLED panel and a fingerprint scanner as the Tab S8 Ultra (although the Tab S8 lacks both), but the Tab Tab Tab S8’s camera system and colour selections.
Price and Availability: Starting in February, the Galaxy Tab S8, S8+, and S8 Ultra will be available for pre-order (February 9). The Tab S8 is available for $700. The Tab S8+ is available for $900. The Tab S8 Ultra, on the other hand, starts at $1,1000.
