Technology giant and mobile phone giant Samsung is once again getting ready to shake up the international market. The South Korean company recently launched the new Galaxy S22 along with its offshoots S22+ and S22 Ultra. The new smartphones should of course shine with state-of-the-art technology. Among other things, they proudly presented how great and efficient the new screens are. However, it has now emerged that this is not entirely true.
Galaxy S22: Target frame rates not possible
When presenting the new products, Samsung advertised that, among other things, the energy efficiency of the new displays was significantly better. Adaptive frame rates should ensure this. The so-called “Dynamic AMOLED” panel is said to cover 10-120 Hertz in the Galaxy S22 basic models and 1-120 Hertz in the Ultra.
However, experts on the net agree that this is not possible with the S22 and S22+, as Nextpit reports. According to this, Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants discovered subsequent changes to the corresponding data sheets, as he also did on Twitter announced.
He also provided the evidence. In fact, there is now only talk of a frame rate range of 48-120 Hertz and no longer of 10-120. After all, the S22 Ultra should continue to deliver the promised efficiency.
Less efficiency = higher battery consumption?
The fact that the displays in the two basic models cannot keep what was initially promised is not good news at first. The fact that Samsung changed this data afterwards should at least make you skeptical. However, it remains to be seen to what extent this will make itself felt among consumers.
Lower efficiency initially sounds like higher battery consumption – and that’s actually never a good thing. And the standard model of the Galaxy S22 in particular has a smaller battery than its predecessor. However, the device comes with a new processor that really has to prove its performance first. In addition, the bottom line is that the software and its use will also have a significant share in the battery consumption.
But no matter how the result turns out in the end: You can plan a purchase with a clear conscience: Because the Galaxy S22 from Samsung surprisingly uses a new material.
