Having said that, the Galaxy S22 series comes with One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 out of the box. Samsung also announced that they will be offering four years of major Android updates complemented by five years of security patches.

Unsurprisingly, the recently launched series comprises three models with the Galaxy S22 Ultra being the first phone to include an in-built S Pen that uses an ‘AI-based coordination prediction system’.

The South Korean smartphone manufacturer also redesigned the rear camera array which is now made of metal along with a separate lens protrusion for every camera.
