The much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has finally been announced in Nepal. In terms of design, Galaxy S22 Ultra takes its inspiration from the Samsung Note lineup whilst introducing a built-in slot for the S-Pen. The S-Pen, similarly, is said to deliver 70% less latency than the one seen in the Note 20 Ultra. Galaxy S22 Ultra also flaunts a 6.8-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with curves on both the left and the right corners.
Here we will take a detailed overview of the device followed by its expected price in Nepal and availability.
