As the world opens up, so too do the possibilities for incredible holidays. Gourmet escapes in Southeast Asia, beach breaks in the glittering South Pacific, yacht charters on the mighty Med… travellers are limited now only by their imaginations.

With the help of Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 Ultra – combining the best aspects of the Note and S Series, with a powerful suite of tools to help you capture, edit and share amazing content on the go – you can also bring others along for the ride in vibrant high definition.  

Packing a technical punch with four rear cameras (a 108 MP Wide-Angle Main, 12 MP Ultra-Wide, and two 10 MP Telephoto), 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen ideal for use outdoors, and a highly-responsive built-in S Pen, it’s like having an editing suite in your pocket. 

Beyond its impressive specs though, the Galaxy S22 Ultra also comes with a bevy of features designed to take your travels to the next level. In fact, it’s fair to call it the ultimate travel accessory.

Capture fleeting moments 

Some travel moments are so special you can’t help but reach for your phone to try and capture it, like the vibrancy of a Middle Eastern souk or flames igniting your senses at an Indonesian satay stall.

Whatever the situation, the Galaxy S22 Ultra can capture it in stunning detail and within the click of a button thanks to Samsung’s ‘Quick launch camera’ feature.

You also have an abundance of photography modes at your fingertips, from Food Mode that automatically adjusts colour in-frame and blurs the background, to Nightography, which uses advanced pixel sensors to bring low-light moments to life in bright detail.

Combine this with ‘Super steady’ image stabilisation, allowing you to record video with less blur and motion shake, even if you and the subject are on the move – like two passing ferries on Sydney Harbour – and you can do away with bulky tripods or other equipment.

There’s also a Pro mode for advanced users who like to manually fine tune their photography, adjusting elements from ISO and shutter speed to exposure, white balance and more.

Make edits on the fly with the built-in S Pen

For the first time on an S Series phone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with a built-in S Pen. It’s a feature Galaxy Note users have enjoyed for years, yet it’s received a significant boost, with improved responsiveness making it almost as if writing with a pen and paper.

But what can it do? In addition to converting handwriting to text, you can draw and add design flourishes to photos or video, set Air Command shortcuts for frequently used apps, and even use Air Actions that allow you to complete tasks with a Harry Potter-style swish and flick.

For travellers on the go, the S Pen unlocks a new level of note-taking – or journaling, if you like – and a handy ‘Screen Off Memo’ feature means you don’t even have to turn the screen. Just start writing on the black screen and it’ll be automatically saved and filed away!

Stay on top of business, knowing data is safe and secure

Try as you might, it can be hard to completely switch off from work on holiday, particularly with access to emails and logins in your phone. As a result, data safety can become a concern. But, thanks to Samsung’s powerful Knox Vault security built-in, you don’t have to stress.

It doesn’t matter where you are in the world – on the beach in L.A. or connecting with your spiritual side in Nepal – data remains safe and secure, fending off malware or intrusion with added layers of protection from the chip to the cloud. A pocket-sized Fort Knox.

Keep your adventures going with great battery life

Few things strike fear into the hearts of travellers more than a low battery warning, particularly when exploring new and unfamiliar territory, far from the charger left in your room. That’s not an issue with the Galaxy S22, which will last from your morning gym session to after-dinner drinks.

When you eventually do need to juice up though, 45W charging (an upgrade on the 25W charger in the previous model) means you can reach 50% charge in around 20 minutes.

Every feature of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, from its powerful functionality to security, combines to create the ultimate travel accessory, one that not only keeps up but encourages you to go even further.
