The ultimate video and camera experience

The Galaxy S22 Series features enhanced changes on the pro-grade camera providing better quality across multiple lenses. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has a 100x Space Zoom with the Dual Tele Zoom system with a 3x and 10x Optical Zoom and AI-enhanced Super Resolution zooming up to 100x.

You can take clearer videos and photos and get better visibility in any light with the enhanced Super Clear Glass, Larger Pixel sensors, Auto Frame rate, Super Night Solution, Adaptive Pixel and Detail Enhancer.

Take overwhelming Nightography

The Galaxy S22 Series uses Larger Pixel and Pixel Binning technology to absorb more light with enhanced low noise processing for brighter, more detailed night videos and photos.

The 108MP high-resolution camera of the Galaxy S22 Ultra has the biggest pixel sensor yet. It can detect low lighting and meld its megapixels together, creating blocks of nine pixels to increase the size, and the resulting 2.4μm pixels pull in a lot of light. Low noise processing helps get rid of the grain, for a clear, detailed shot in the dark.

  • Taking night videos: An automatic frame rate and shutter speed adjustment according to the light conditions provide more brightness and details at night.
  • Taking night pictures: The redesigned AI ISP compounds photos and removes noises and shaking parts by just one shutter.
  • Taking night portraits: Enhanced night solution is applied to selfies, 1x and 3x zoom optical lenses, enabling brighter and clearer photography from various angles of view.

Super Clear Glass & Lens

The Super Clear Lens on the rear camera tones down lens flare and fast-acting AI delivers near-instant intelligent processing. It helps provide clearer shooting without a reflection or glare, even in the dark.

Note: Super Clear Lens is applied on the Galaxy S22 Ultra side camera only.

Super HDR

Super HDR displays 64x more colour so you will notice smooth videos in every take.

The Super HDR provides more realistic results by optimising colour contrast on bright and dark spots with Algorithm Optimisation. This feature analyses subject movement and noise patterns so you can make clearer videos and get better visibility in any light.

A new Adaptive Pixel Sensor

The Galaxy S22 Series Camera provides Adaptive Pixel technology so you can experience unimaginable clarity and depth, especially regarding the photo quality.

This intelligent camera detects the lighting in your surroundings. If the light dims, the new Adaptive Pixel Sensor adapts and switches from 108MP high-resolution mode to 12MP high-sensitivity mode, or shoots in both modes simultaneously, combining frames to create a highly detailed and bright photo.

The 108MP (Galaxy S22 Ultra), 50MP (Galaxy S22+/S22) and AI pair up to level up your photo skills. It utilises deep-learning, intelligently improving your photos with incredible detail.

Dynamic AMOLED 2x Display

The Galaxy S22 Ultra boasts a 6.8-inch Edge Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with Vision Booster. It is our most stunning display experience yet, with 16% more brightness and a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

Note: The Dynamic AMOLED 2x display of the Galaxy Series received a certification from VDE Germany for 100 per cent Mobile Colour Volume in the DCI P3 colour range.

Vision Booster

The Vision Booster is a technology that provides tone mapping for enhanced visibility against strong illumination in outdoor circumstances.

Vision Booster's algorithm analyses the histogram data of all content appearing on the display, inspecting each pixel's value. Then, it performs tone mapping to adjust the display, making dark areas brighter and colours richer, maximising colour contrast for a sharper picture, even under direct sunlight.
