At the Unpacked event, Samsung claimed that similar to Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ also feature a display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate which is able to drop as low as 10Hz. However, a few days after the devices gets official, the company changed the details on its official website.
Samsung recently updated its spec sheets to reveal that the Galaxy S22 and S22+ displays can only drop down to 48Hz. Now the company has officially issued a comment to Android Police to clarify the issues regarding the minimum refresh rate.
Samsung unveils that it uses the same display components on both devices and that the component supports a 48-120Hz variable refresh rate. However, Samsung is using proprietary technology to improve power consumption. This lets them reduce the data transfer rates to as low as 10Hz.
Check out the official statement, mentioned below:
The display refresh rate was originally listed between 10 and 120Hz (10 to 120 frames per second), and we later opted to update how we communicate this specification in order to be in line with the more widely-recognized industry standard.Consumers can be assured there has been no change of hardware specifications, and both devices support up to 120Hz for super smooth scrolling.
Have early look at future Galaxy Rollable/Slidable by Samsung!
After foldables, Samsung appears to be focussing on an even more futuristic kind of Galaxy smartphone, which can be defined as Rollable or Slidable. This type of flexible display can be rolled inside to reduce the size of the smartphone, while it can also be expanded back to provide a bigger viewing area.
The same Samsung again showcased the recent display exhibition in South Korea, which gives yet another confirmation for its future Slidable or Rollable display smartphone.
Entitled Flex OLED, it is the South Korean tech giant’s most astonishing next-gen product that folds up into an ‘S’ shape or that fold twice inward with two hinges, folding laptops, and slidable expanded from both sides.
In the concept video shared by Samsung, we can see a prototype slidable display smartphone that has an expandable display that can be enlarged vertically, providing a larger viewfinder for the consumers.
Check the video below.

Samsung Display is progressively experimenting and developing the organic OLED display for various display devices such as TVs, computers, Laptops, and present-day smartphones.
As of now, we don’t have any official information regarding Samsung’s plans for rollable/slideable display smartphones. As the company has showcased prototypes earlier, it’s obviously confirmed that there will surely be rollable phones launching in near future.
Samsung Galaxy S23/S23+ to feature old design, camera, and wider bezels
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at its mid-year Unpacked, and all of our eyes are on the next Unpacked which will bring the Galaxy S23 series. Ahead of the release, tipster IceUniverse shared important information that suggests the Galaxy S23 and S23+ won’t get a new design, camera and display.
According to the tipster, the design, camera, screen and resolution of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ smartphones will be identical to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+, respectively. At the same time, the source claimed that the bezels of all three models including S23 Ultra will be a little wider, which doesn’t make sense.
The tipster didn’t talk about the design and camera specs of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is rumored to be packed with a giant 200MP ISOCELL HP2 lens. However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumored to come with wider bezels, which could be Samsung’s durability expansion decision.
Galaxy S22, S22+
The Galaxy S22 features a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with up to 1300 nits (peak) brightness, 87.4% screen-to-body ratio, and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. The Galaxy S22+, on the other hand, comes with 6.6 inches Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with 1750 nits (peak) brightness and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution.
Samsung might launch the Galaxy S23 series smartphones in early 2023, most possibly in February. The lineup will include three models the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. The top variant of this lineup is rumored to feature an unreleased 200MP primary camera sensor.

Samsung confirms 4 Android updates for Galaxy A52s, but, don’t be happy!
Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is undoubtedly a flagship-grade smartphone with powerful performance, thanks to its Snapdragon 778G processor. Similar to the Galaxy A52/A72, Samsung promised 3 major Android updates to Galaxy A52s 5G, however, the manager of its UK Twitter account just confirmed 4 updates, which is not valid.
Twitter user Jon Crawford shared the information that his Galaxy A52s smartphone just got the August 2022 security patch to praise Samsung’s support. Following the Tweet, Samsung UK comes up and thanked the user and further reminded him that the A52s support up to 5 years of security updates.
As a regular Twitter post become a thread of official communication, another user Medbuddy asked Samsung about the Android OS updates support for the Galaxy A52s 5G. Samsung UK didn’t stop and accidentally confirmed 4 generations of Android updates for the Galaxy A52s and embedded the newsroom post of the new policy.
Firstly, we’ve rechecked the software updates support of the Galaxy A52s on Samsung’s website, which still promises 3 updates, then we headed for the 4 OS guarantee press release to check if the manufacturer made amendments in the list of devices, but, it’s the same as day one.
According to the information mentioned in the policy, Samsung won’t bring 4 Android updates to the Galaxy A52s smartphone as this guideline applies to the Galaxy A53/A73 and select models that will launch in the future. At the same time, flagships starting the Galaxy S21 series are also listed for the same support.
Due to a lack of information, Samsung UK appears to be doing fake promises to the consumers which are disappointing. We hope, that this mistake will be solved as soon as our voice reaches Samsung’s ears, meanwhile, we would be happy if the Galaxy A52s 5G becomes eligible for 4 OS updates.
Great question! The A52s will receive four generations of Android OS updates! You can read more about this here: https://t.co/baCrxumW9S ^RR
