Samsung's latest Galaxy Unpacked event saw the company debut three S22 phones and three Tab S8 tablets, each set dominated by an unusual Ultra
By Tech Advisor, Tech Advisor
This was Samsung’s week, so it was no surprise to see just about every other tech company in the world step back and give the Korean giant some space.
That means we’re focusing on a
Galaxy Unpacked deep dive on the show, starting with the
Galaxy S22 series. There are three phones this time around, but really it’s
all about the Ultra, the souped up flagship that looks more like a Note phone than anything else in the S22 series, with a rounded body and space for an S Pen stylus to slot inside.
The regular S22 and S22+ are no slouches though. They may look similar to last year’s S21 models, but they’ve had seriously upgraded camera setups that should keep them competitive in the 2022 market. And by returning to a glass body while
keeping prices the same, Samsung has done a lot to win its core fans back over.
Then there’s the
Tab S8 series. The S8 and S8+ are solid, if unexciting, Android tablets. But the S8 Ultra is its own strange beast. With a massive 14.5in widescreen display it’s essentially
positioned as a laptop replacement, helped by including powerful front-facing cameras that will beat any laptop webcam – though admittedly we could do without the notch.
