Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra teardown
Contributing Authors: Daniel Yang, Stacy Wegner
TechInsights was very lucky to get the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra European model SM-S908B/DS in our hands early - it arrived in our Warsaw lab for teardown on Monday, February 21. Our colleagues did a quick teardown of the Samsung Exynos 2200-powered Galaxy S22 Ultra, so we can share some of our early teardown results now.
New Silicon in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
Samsung Exynos 2200 Application Processor and Modem: Samsung announced its 4nm process node is used for this chip. We have previously seen the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that was also fabbed in the Samsung 4nm process. We discussed the Snapdragon when we found it in the Motorola edge X30.
Samsung RF Transceiver S5520: We are working now on the die photo from this new RF Transceiver. Subscribers to TechInsights’ Mobile RF analysis will be the first to see the results.
We also found a new NFC Controller & Secure Element SN220.
Not-So-New Silicon in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
So far, with the few exceptions noted above, most of the other silicon components in this phone are not new. We have seen the following components from the Galaxy S22 Ultra before, including the LPDDR5, NAND Flash, Wi-Fi & BT Combo SoC, and UWB. Our CMOS Image Sensor experts suspect that the cameras are not new either. We will provide updates of our findings in the next few days when we have lab results of the silicon devices and cameras. Stay tuned.
