All three new Galaxy S22 variants have just launched with displays made of first-party Dynamic AMOLED 2X, have 120Hz refresh rates and are protected with the latest Gorilla Glass Victus+. However, the Ultra version is the only one with an Adaptive Refresh mode that can go down to 1Hz rather than 10Hz. It also contains some other upgrades that has its maker calling it "our most advanced display yet".

The long-awaited Galaxy S22 series has arrived with what may be some welcome upgrades in terms of build across variants, such as the return of a glass back (made of Gorilla Glass Victus+, no less) in the base S22. However, the OEM has still reserved its most premium features for its Ultra sibling, display properties included.

The proprietary Dynamic AMOLED 2X material of which its new screen is made does not change in the S22 and S22+, no more than it does in the S21 series and even the older Galaxy Z Fold3. However, Samsung asserts that it improves on even its foldable counterpart with new and cutting-edge features in the S22 Ultra.

For a start, it is the only new flagship variant to also boast LTPO 2.0, which allows its variable refresh rate mode (or "Adaptive Refresh" in One UI) to drop all the way down to 1Hz on the fly, in a manner touted to benefit performance while saving battery. It has also been found to do so regardless of resolution chosen.

Samsung has also introduced Vision Booster alongside the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This new mode is rated to set the phablet's AI to analyze a whole-display histogram and adjust light emittance pixel by pixel. This is intended to deploy the ability of AMOLED to assign blacks (by simply turning off) with more accuracy, resulting in a better image overall.

Finally, the Galaxy S22 Ultra's display is of course the only one within its range that can support an S Pen with 1,750 nits of max brightness. It will be interesting to see how its new features work out in real life - not to mention review, of course.
