Every year for the past 12 years, Samsung has launched a new Galaxy S phone. The Galaxy S22 series is Samsung's latest set of flagship smartphones, with three new models called Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra. It was launched and hit the pre-order phase on February 9th, 2022. It is available for general purchase from February 25, 2022. There are welcome improvements in the Galaxy S22 like faster processor and better camera. But there aren't any game-changing updates that bring substantially new features to the Galaxy S22. This flagship is available in two variants with different storage sizes and the same 8gb ram in both of them. The current price for 8GB RAM + 128GB Storage is $799.99 and 8GB RAM + 256GB Storage is $849.99. In India, you have to pay ₹72,999 for 8GB RAM + 128GB Storage and ₹76,999 for 8GB RAM + 256GB Storage.

The Galaxy S22 is slightly more compact than last year's Galaxy S21 and noticeably smaller than the Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra. Among the S22 series, the Galaxy S22 is great for those who want a phone that's easy to use with one hand, around the same size as the iPhone 13. The premium device from the brand packs an impressive specs sheet.
