Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus: Design
Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus' design isn't that different than the S21 Plus. In fact, the design looks more mature now. The vertical camera array still sticks to the top left corner of the device and the camera module's also frame melts into the frame of the phone just like the S21 Plus. However, the S22 Plus is a bit 'boxy' in shape now. It doesn't have as smooth of a corner radius as the S21 Plus.
The back is made out of glass which has been given a haze finish. The camera module's color now matches the color of the back of the body, unlike the S21 Plus. Overall, the smartphone now looks more modern, fashionable, and sleek.
Samsung hasn't forgotten about the phone's durability. The company says the S22 Plus is its 'most durable' smartphone to date. The chassis of the S22 Plus is made out of Armor Aluminum which increases its durability many folds. Moreover, the glass used on the back and the front is Corning's Gorilla Glass Victus+, which is one of the toughest glass for smartphones out there.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus: Display
Samsung Galaxy S21 series had one of the best displays in smartphones last year. With the Galaxy S22, Samsung is upping its game. The Galaxy S22 Plus features a big Dynamic AMOLED 6.6-inch display. This display boasts an FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2340 pixels) with an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. Samsung claims the display's brightness can go up to 1,750 nits — best of all smartphones — that enables class-leading color contrast and HDR playbacks.
In addition, the Galaxy S22 Plus also comes with Vision Booster technology that automatically adjusts the display to the lighting around you and enhances the color contrast. As mentioned above, the display is made up of Corning's Gorilla Glass Victus+ so you can worry less about accidental drops.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus: Cameras
Samsung Galaxy S-series devices have some of the best cameras of all smartphones. And just like that, the Galaxy S22 Plus is also promised to deliver next-level camera experiences. The triple camera setup includes a 50MP main wide-angle camera, a 10MP telelens, and a 12MP ultra-wide lens. The main 50MP camera of the device comes with features like Dual Pixel autofocus, Optical Image Stabilization, and an 85-degree field of view. The 10MP telephoto lens features 3x optical zoom while the ultra-wide camera boasts a field of view of 120-degree.

Other features include Auto-Framing which automatically detects and tracks up to 10 people and adjusts the camera’s focus to capture everyone clearly. On the video side of things, the S22 Plus can record up to 8K at 24fps. Samsung has also included advanced VDIS technology that stabilizes the video when you're recording on the move.
