After the launch of the new smartphones Galaxy S22 and S22 +, many Internet users questioned the correctness of the information presented on the technical sheet of the devices. It seems that not all of them are accurate.
Samsung lifted the veil last week on A new generation of high-end smartphones, Galaxy S22, S22 + and S22 Ultra. On the official data sheets, Samsung indicated that its screen Galaxy S22 and S22+ Variable refresh rate display from 10Hz to 120Hz, Which indicates that they were using LTPO (polycrystalline oxide at low temperature).
With the LTPO panel, the screen can dynamically change its frequency according to the displayed contentAllow Great energy saving. This technology is found in most high-end smartphones, including OnePlus 9 Pro And OnePlus 10 Prothe Oppo Find X3 Prothe Galaxy S21 Ultrathe iPhone 13 Pro or even Pixel 6 Pro.
Galaxy S22 and S22+ does not use LTPO technology
When contacted on this topic, Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, confirmed that Galaxy S22 screen did not use LTPO panel, but LTPS panel. The problem is that the LTPS board is currently there Unable to lower refresh rate below 48Hzas this would cause major flickering problems.
Facing the anger of netizens on social networks, Samsung has finally officially announced that the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are not compatible with LTPO technology. Therefore, the Korean manufacturer made changes to the data sheet for both devices. This now determines that the monitor delivers a frequency from 48Hz to 120Hzinstead of 10 Hz to 120 Hz.
So this is very bad news for users, because the LTPO display would have allowed smartphones to be more autonomous than their predecessors.. Unlike Galaxy S22 Ultraso Samsung preferred to settle the LTPS board over Galaxy S22 and S22 +, which puts them on the same level as Xiaomi 12. In fact, Xiaomi has also adopted the LTPO display only on the more expensive model. Xiaomi 12 forefront.
Smartphones can change their refresh rate by software at several levels, like what Xiaomi smartphones actually do. They will use a frequency of 120 Hz in social networks, but for example they will be limited to 60 Hz when watching a video. Battery saving can’t be as close as it is on the LTPO displaysince this device is capable of taking any value between 10Hz and 120Hz, or 1Hz and 120Hz for the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s LTPO 2.0 technology.
What about the autonomy of the Galaxy S22 and S22+?
The Galaxy S22 and S22+ this year saw a decrease in their battery size. Sure, smartphones are a little smaller than previous models, but their batteries lost 300mAh of capacity compared to previous models.. Galaxy S22 is equipped with a battery of only 3700 mAhCompared to 4000 mAh on the Galaxy S21. from his side, Galaxy S22+ uses a 4500mAh batteryIt’s smaller than the Galaxy S22+’s 4,800mAh battery.
So smartphones needed a more energy efficient LTPO display to provide a slightly longer autonomy. To compensate for the low battery capacity, Samsung has raised the maximum fast charging power of the Galaxy S22+ to 45W, but the classic Galaxy S22 will still have to make do with only 25W. Samsung is still lagging behind in fast charging technologies on its smartphones. For example, we are far from 67 watts from the Xiaomi 12, its main competitor.
While waiting to be able to thoroughly test all the Galaxy S22 series smartphones to see if they are more durable than their predecessors or not, you can actually go Consult keeping in mind all new Samsung flagships. As a reminder, you still have to be patient before you can get your hands on the devices. Galaxy S22 Ultra will be available to everyone on February 25while it will be necessary to wait for a file March 10 for Galaxy S22 and S22 +.
