We haven't heard many rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S22 lately, but with the phone's launch now possibly just a couple of months away – and the rumour-dominating iPhone 13 now official – that will soon change. The latest concerns the S22 Ultra's screen – apparently the device will have the brightest OLED panel ever seen in a Samsung smartphone.
That's according to serial leaker Ice universe (via GSMArena). He claims the peak brightness of the S22 Ultra's display "broke through the highest record of Samsung's OLED screen". He goes on to imply the screen will remain exclusive to Samsung.
There aren't any specifics to get into, but suffice to say Samsung's premium smartphones have some of the best screens in the business (it provides panels for other manufacturers' handsets too, including some iPhones).
The Galaxy S21 – whose screen we described as rich and smooth in our review – peaked at 1500 nits, so expect the S22 to top that.
