Samsung has quietly adjusted its press release details by saying that the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are only equipped with Dynamic AMOLED 2X 48 Hz ~ 120 Hz screens instead of 10 Hz ~ 120 Hz as before.
According to Neowin , the information comes from leak expert Ross Young, who realized that Samsung has just changed the details of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ in their marketing materials 2 days after their launch.
From what he gathered, Young noticed in older Samsung marketing materials that both the Galaxy S22 and S22+ were equipped with a refresh rate display that varied from 10 Hz to 120 Hz, but in According to the latest marketing material Samsung published, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are only equipped with a refresh rate display that varies from 48 Hz to 120 Hz, the same as last year’s predecessors.
This information is also further confirmed through a comparison between the current Samsung Newsroom website for the Galaxy S22 and S22+ with the archived version of this website via the Internet Wayback Machine.
Samsung has quietly changed the details of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ after it opened pre-orders on February 10 for both phones in select markets like the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Misrepresentation of screen specifications has also been widespread as many tech have uploaded hands-on videos and mentioned that both devices have 10Hz ~ 120Hz refresh rate screens, while in fact both only support 48 Hz ~ 120 Hz.
It is known that many people have been worried about the fact that the Galaxy S22 and S22+ have worse battery life than their predecessors when they only have 3,700 mAh and 4,500 mAh batteries respectively, while the Galaxy S21 and S21+ have two times the battery life. are 4,000 mAh and 4,800 mAh larger, respectively. Buyers think that the more frugal 10 Hz ~ 120 Hz display can make up for the 300 mAh reduction in battery size because the screen when reading e-books runs on less battery at 10 Hz compared to 48 Hz.
Now, as Samsung tweaks the specs, it is hoped that the software’s battery-saving optimization will be enough to make the Galaxy S22 and S22+ last all day on a single charge when they reach consumers .
