Samsung took to its virtualstage on Wednesday to show off its next-gen Galaxy S22 lineup, consisting of the , and . All three models are now. The phones’ features, such as their , have been upgraded for 2022.
The regular entry-level Galaxy S22 phone starts at $800 (£769, converts to about AU$1,450), then the price goes up to $1,000 (£949, converts to AU$1,800) for the Galaxy S22 Plus and finally $1,200 (£1,149, converts to AU$2,170) for the S22 Ultra.
The three devices have a similar glass and metal build, and share the same processor (the), the same display refresh rate (up to 120Hz) and the 40-megapixel selfie camera. The S22 is considerably more compact than its Pro siblings, with a 6.1-inch AMOLED display that’s notably smaller than the S22 Plus’ 6.6-inch screen and the Ultra’s 6.8-inch screen. It appears to be a much lighter device, too, at just 168 grams as compared with the S22 Plus’ 196 grams and the Ultra’s 229 grams.
By and large, however, the regular S22 isn’t all that different from the Plus model. Some of the key features, like the processor and, are virtually identical. The S22 and S22 Plus each have three rear cameras consisting of a 50-megapixel wide lens, a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 10-megapixel telephoto lens. The S22 Ultra has a four-camera module on the rear, headlined by a 108-megapixel main shooter. There are also two telephoto lenses and an ultrawide camera.
Many of these are the sort of iterative upgrades expected from next-generation devices. But the Ultra’s neware what set it apart from the rest of the S22 lineup and the broader premium phone market. For the first time, a Galaxy S Ultra phone will come with a stylus included inside the box and will also have a slot for storing it on the phone — just like Samsung’s all-but-discontinued Note series. S Pen fans who bought last year’s had to pay for the stylus separately and find a specific phone case that could store it.
The S22 Ultra is also the only device in the series to support ultrawideband, a radio technology that helps power features such as digital car keys and lost item tracking.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 returns to the flat screens of of the Galaxy S7. The regular Galaxy S22 is the smallest of the bunch, with a 6.1 inch screen but is powered by the the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It’s a proper beast even if it is diminutive compared to its bigger brothers.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is very similar to the smaller S22, but features 6.6 inch screen and can host up to 12GB of RAM. It does, however, use the same three camera set-up as the smaller S22. The S22 Plus is also missing the Note-esque stylus that comes with the S22 Ultra.
Samsung’s latest flagship superphone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has an impressive lineup of specs, including a quadruple rear camera, a big, vibrant display and the S Pen stylus you might remember from the Galaxy Note series. It comes with a high price, but those of you looking for one of the best Android phones around should have this on your short list.

The Nothing Phone will have a transparent backplate and wireless charging – MobileSyrup
It looks like the Nothing Phone (1) will release on July 21st for roughly €500 (about $675 CAD) if recent leaks are accurate.
This lines up with Pei’s stated “summer release date.” The price isn’t confirmed yet, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Pei attempt the same flagship killer strategy he pioneered at OnePlus and used for his company’s Nothing Ear (1)s.

— Carl Pei (@getpeid) May 24, 2022
In an interview with Wallpaper magazine, Pei and Nothing’s head of design mentioned that the phone will feature a clear back similar to the Nothing Ear (1) buds, and that the wireless charging circle inside the phone will be a major design focal point.
We also already know that the device will be made of recycled aluminum (likely the edges) and that it will run stock Android software called Nothing OS, which is available to demo now.
It’s exciting to see a new phone maker attempt to break into the space, but Nothing will need to reveal a really compelling phone if it aims to compete with Google, Apple and Samsung.

Redmi Note 11 Pro, Pro Plus announced: A huge power boost – Android Authority
Xiaomi has a ton of new budget Redmi Note phones in its portfolio, ranging from the China-only Redmi Note 11 series to the global Note 11 family, and the Redmi Note 11T. Now, the company has launched even more devices, dubbed the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Pro Plus.
The two phones share a ton in common, starting with a high-powered Dimensity 8100 chipset. Mediatek previously said this SoC specifically takes aim at the Snapdragon 870 and 888 and should deliver performance that’s more in line with the latter. The processor offers a 5nm TSMC design, octa-core CPU (four Cortex-A78, four Cortex-A55), and Mali-G610 MC6 GPU.
Interestingly, the new phones pack a 6.6-inch 144Hz LCD panel (20.5:9, FHD+), making for a departure from high refresh rate OLED screens seen on the global Redmi Note 11 series.
Otherwise, the Note 11T Pro and Pro Plus only differ in terms of battery and charging capabilities. The Pro model offers a 5,080mAh battery with 67W wired charging while the Pro Plus has a smaller battery (4,400mAh), 120W wired charging, and the in-house Surge P1 charging chip.
The phones also share a similar primary camera, namely a 64MP GW1 shooter. Redmi didn’t dish out secondary camera details, but we’re guessing the phones also pack an 8MP ultrawide lens and 2MP macro camera.
Other notable specs include a 3.5mm port, Bluetooth 5.3, IP53 rating, MIUI 13, NFC, side fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, x-axis linear motor, and Wi-Fi 6.

Redmi is also offering a special Astro Boy version of the Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus, offering a rather different design. In addition to the tweaked design, you’re also getting a special case and other goodies seen above.
Redmi Note 11T series pricing
The new Redmi phones are China-only releases for now, and there’s no immediate word on global availability. For what it’s worth, Xiaomi launched two separate Redmi Note 11 lines for global and Chinese markets, so it’s possible we won’t get these exact models.
Otherwise, you can expect to pay 1,799 yuan (~$270) for the 6GB/128GB Redmi Note 11T Pro, all the way up to 2,199 yuan (~$330) for the 8GB/256GB model. However, early bird prices mean you’ll be paying 1,699 yuan (~$255) and 2,099 yuan (~$315) respectively.
Redmi Note 11T Pro series: Hot or not?
The faster charging Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus starts at 1,999 yuan (~$300) for the base 8GB/128GB model, all the way to 2,499 yuan (~$375) for the 8GB/512GB model. Early bird prices of 2,099 yuan (~$315) and 2,499 yuan (~$375) respectively apply here too.
Like the idea of the Astro Boy edition? Then you’ll be spending 2,499 yuan (~$375) for the sole 8GB/256GB model.
