Samsung's excellent Galaxy S22 range has been available for several months now, and it's remains the South Korean manufacturer's non-folding flagship smartphone line of 2022. That means if you're set on a traditional Samsung phone, the Galaxy S22 suite of handsets is where it's at.
And, just like with any other major flagship phone, you'll be able to find it at all the usual Aussie retailers and carriers — the only difference is that Samsung's Galaxy S22 devices have been out long enough to get some decent discounts on occasion.
The entry-level Galaxy S22 sports a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED display and now starts at AU$1,049, which is a couple hundred bucks cheaper than it was at launch. It offers a triple camera setup on the rear led by the same 50MP wide sensor that's on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Next is the Galaxy S22 Plus, which is far more expensive than the standard model at AU$1,549, despite being practically identical in terms of specs. That said, it does offer a larger battery and 6.6-inch display. Thankfully, it's often discounted at retail.
And finally, Samsung's most premium non-folding handset of the year, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which sports a 6.8-inch QHD+ display and quad camera array, led by an impressive 108MP main sensor. And, just like the now-defunct Note series, it's got a built-in S Pen. Pricing for this beast of a phone starts at AU$1,849.
