The next Galaxy S-series top-end model is slated to be a ground-breaking phone in a number of respects, even for its premium line. Now, an eminent leaker asserts that the South Korean giant has broken a specific record in developing a display for this flagship device. The feature in question is now projected to beat even the Galaxy Z Fold3 in these terms.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra has yet to launch or even be confirmed to exist at present; nevertheless, this has not stopped the rumor mill from churning out new and advanced milestones it is expected to pass on its way to a debut. The hypothetical Samsung flagship is thought to be first to ditch an Ultra-sized monolithic camera hump in quite a number of generations, not to mention first to an in-built S Pen (within its own series, that is).

On that note, it is also now projected to have a display more like that of a Galaxy Note-series phone than ever.. The reliable tipster Ice Universe now claims that this panel will come with a spec big enough to match its potential dimensions and screen-to-body ratio.

The leaker asserts that Samsung has achieved a peak brightness that "broke through the highest record of Samsung's OLED screen[s]" in the S22 Ultra. This may mean the flagship could arrive rated for a maximum brightness greater than the 1200-nit spec found in the Galaxy Z Fold3, not to mention the S21 Ultra's 1,500 nits.

Therefore, should this tip prove accurate, it implies scope for a variant or successor for the advanced Eco2 OLED made for the freshly-launched foldable device. To briefly recap, it is rated for enhanced transmittance at optimal power-efficiency; therefore, Samsung might soon be seen to boast of a Galaxy S22 Ultra that can get brighter than ever while still conserving its battery life.
