A MOMENT of silence, please, for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Once the electronic giant’s specs flagship, with its signature stylus, the Note has been quietly discontinued, its features and positioning now officially absorbed into Samsung’s S line.

For what is the Galaxy S22 Ultra except a Note by another name? It has the latest specs, a sizable 6.8-inch screen, and even a little housing for the S Pen — something last year’s S21 Ultra didn’t have.

Compared to last year’s curvier model, the S22 Ultra has a more angular, geometric frame (like a Note!). It also ditches the camera array at the back for four embedded lenses: a 108MP wide, a 12MP ultrawide, and two 10MP telephotos. A new 4nm chip powers everything under the hood, with a 5,000 mAh battery chipping in the fuel.

Specs-wise, Samsung offers three choices — Option A: 128GB storage with 8GB RAM; Option B: 256GB storage with 8GB RAM; and the priciest, beefiest Option C: 512GB with 12GB RAM.

The base S22 Ultra is cheaper by P1,000 compared to the S21 Ultra. Check out the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra prices below:

Meanwhile the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ get slightly smaller screens (0.1 inch smaller, to be precise), and smaller batteries (300 mAh smaller, to be precise), but in a thinner, more svelte design. They also both get Samsung’s brand-new chip, Gorilla Glass Victus Plus on the back (last year’s S21 had a “glasstic” back), and improved camera technology.
