Samsung's brand-new flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra, unveiled Wednesday at its Unpacked event, replaces last year's Galaxy S21 Ultra

Amazing 10x optical zoom.

Both phones have 6.8-inch displays with pretty much the same resolution See on amazon

both have 12GB of RAM

both support 5G the S21 Ultra could be configured up to 16GB

both have pretty much the same camera hardware (including that 10x optical zoom, 8K video and 108-megapixel main sensor) and both have the same size battery.

The S22 Ultra comes with the latest Android 12 software (the S21 Ultra got an update to Android 12 late last year)

Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor -- or Samsung's new Exynos processor, depending on the region. How these two chips really compare to the Snapdragon 888 chip in the S21 Ultra remains to be seen in our testing

biggest physical difference is the S22 Ultra's addition of the S Pen stylus, something typically only seen on the now-retired Galaxy Note series. If you loved doodling on Note phones then that's one reason to consider the S22 Ultra over its predecessor.
