Meanwhile, the flagship duo also shares the same Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel but then, of course, the Plus is larger than the standard one. The S22 5G uses a 6.1-inch display while the S22+ 5G, on the other hand, opts in for a larger 6.6-inch one. Both devices support 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, IP68 water resistance, and a peak brightness of 1300-nits and 1750-nits respectively.

Around the back, both models also share the same triple-camera setup that is consisting of a 50MP f/1.8 main, 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, and 10MP 3x telephoto camera modules with an LED flash while on the front, you get a 10MP f/2.2 selfie snapper.
