My top 5 Samsung Galaxy S22 wishes

Tech Highlights:

  • We’ve already had the launch of the Apple iPhone 13 and Google’s Pixel 6. Those phones may well influence Samsung’s plans for its own phones. Expect to see this article updated as the months progress, and keep an eye on CNET’s ongoing rumor roundup for the latest on the Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy S21 FE.

  • The pro-level camera, bright screen, and fast CPU of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 pleased us. But the Galaxy S22, its replacement, isn’t far behind. The Galaxy S22, which might be unveiled at Samsung’s Unpacked event in February, is reported to contain a 200-megapixel camera and a smaller display, among other things. (See how the Samsung Galaxy S22 compares to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 FE.) We even got a sneak peek at the Galaxy S22 Ultra in a supposed leaked poster, but we’ll have to wait until the phone is officially shown to see whether the rumours are genuine. Meanwhile, as a demanding tech junkie, I’ve created my own wish list of features for Samsung’s forthcoming phone.

The camera on the S21 Ultra is superb, with an awesome optical zoom that lets you get shots that few phones can compare to. But it wasn’t a big upgrade over the S20. Both had 100x zooms, both did 8K video, both had 108-megapixel sensors. The S20 Ultra was the big leap forward, the S21 Ultra just refined it slightly. It’s time then for a bigger update, and some early rumors suggest a 200-megapixel sensor and much-improved zoom systems on the S22 Ultra.

But Samsung needs to make sure its software is on point too. There are more advances needed to allow for improved computational photography and better raw image capture. Apple’s ProRaw has blown me away: It can capture beautiful HDR images that still give me full control over editing in apps like Adobe Lightroom, just as I would with any raw file from a DSLR. Samsung’s software isn’t quite at that level and I’d like to see more focus here.

That would be lovely, but more megapixels doesn’t necessarily mean better photos, so I’d also like to see an even bigger image sensor — maybe a 1-inch sensor. It’s no secret that a bigger image sensor allows for better dynamic range in a photo. If Samsung paired that resolution with a big sensor capable of capturing tons of light and contrast details it could have an absolutely astonishing camera system on its hands.
