Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra might have the Fastest S Pen ever

Specifications for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a next-generation S Pen with a latency of 2.98 milliseconds, a 3x improvement over its predecessor. Even though Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra speculations have created the image of a very uninteresting successor, according to a new leak, it will be equipped with the quickest S Pen pen that the firm has ever supplied with its Note-series phones. The forthcoming Samsung flagship is a remarkable device because it continues the heritage of the Galaxy Note series by introducing a built-in S Pen to the Galaxy S series for the first time in its history.

With a slightly changed camera lens configuration, the Galaxy S22 borrows the aesthetics of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which is the starting point for the design of the device. The android transfer — Galaxy S21 Ultra, released last year, included stylus input, but Samsung marketed the S Pen separately. With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung has relegated the S Pen to a garage that has been drilled directly into the phone’s chassis for protection. However, this isn’t the only S Pen improvement included with the forthcoming Samsung phone.

According to reports, the smartphone would include a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution, a 120Hz variable refresh rate, HDR10+, an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint reader, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU (or an Exynos 2200 processor in select areas) and features a 5,000mAh battery.

Furthermore, the Galaxy S22 Ultra might have a 40MP selfie camera, a main camera with 108MP resolution, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and two 10MP telephoto sensors (3x and 10x optical zoom). Apart from dual speakers, an IP68 certification, 45W fast charging, 15W wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging, Samsung might also include these features in the phone.

A Market First

Tech After previously posting claimed marketing material for the Galaxy S22 UItra, YouTuber Zaryab Khan now claims that the accompanying pen would be far speedier than the S Pen from the previous generation of devices. As a result, Khan says that the input latency has been reduced by around three times, which indicates that users will not suffer much input lag and that the experience of taking notes or sketching would be far smoother. While writing or drawing, stylus latency is one of the most significant issues that prevent tablets, particularly low-cost devices, from providing a gratifying experience. This is because the input lag is immediately visible while writing or drawing.

Khan said that the stylus latency had been decreased to an astounding 2.98 milliseconds, which he said was another addition to his Samsung leak spree. Think about the S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which has an input latency of 9 milliseconds yet feels great when used regularly in everyday situations. Similarly, the second-generation Apple Pencil has a latency of 9 milliseconds, one of the lowest latency values available for a product not aimed at a certain market group.

Reports of a third-generation Apple Pencil have already begun to surface, and it is quite probable that the latency statistics will continue to improve in the coming months. However, it should be emphasized that delay is not just a function of the stylus’s movement. It also requires some extensive software tweaking and advanced techniques such as pixel path prediction to provide the smoothest possible experience. Therefore, it remains to be seen if the current S Pen leak proves to be legitimate and how Samsung managed to attain the 3ms latency number.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra will be powered by an Exynos CPU manufactured in 4nm regarding the remainder of the specifications. However, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC model will be available in select territories. According to the manufacturer, the OLED panel has a refresh rate of 120Hz, but the brightness has been increased to an astonishing 1,750 nits. The camera system consists of the main camera with 108 megapixels, a 12-megapixel ultra wide angle camera, and a pair of 10-megapixel telephoto sensors. The secondary camera has 12 megapixels, and the ultra wide angle camera has 12 megapixels. Additionally, 12-bit HDR capture is included, and Dolby HDR video capture is supported up to 4K resolution at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
