[Update: Fix Coming Soon] Galaxy S22 Ultra Users are Experiencing a Weird Display Issue
[UPDATE]: Thankfully, Samsung has now confirmed that this issue has plagued a handful of Galaxy S22 Ultra phones and they are currently working on a fix that should come out soon. Meanwhile, you can follow the steps that are mentioned below.
We are aware of a limited number of Galaxy S22 Ultra devices experiencing a pixelated line on the display when [the] customer plays YouTube or unlocks the device with fingerprints.
The issue may occur rarely when the user set[s] the device resolution to WQHD and Screen mode to Natural mode.
We have already worked to develop a patch on Galaxy S22 Ultra and will release software updates to address the issue soon. We recommend that until then, please change the screen mode to Vivid or resolution to FHD+ of your device.
[Original Story] Samsung flagship devices are known to top the charts every year they are released; the Galaxy S22 Ultra is easily one of the best smartphones to have come out this year and packs absolutely amazing hardware, to a point that you are not going to find any issues with the phone. However, a bunch of reports is now suggesting that the display of Galaxy S22 Ultra is running into a weird issue.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra Exynos Variant is Suffering From a Horizontal Pixellated Line on the Display
A number of users have reported that the Galaxy S22 Ultra display ends up showing a pixellated line that runs horizontally through the entire display. The funny thing is that all the issues that we have seen so far show the line appearing in the same position. It also seems like the issue is on the software end because changing the display mode to Vivid fixes the problem.
At the time of writing, the display-related issue is only appearing on the Exynos 2200 variant of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 variants are still not suffering from this issue. Hopefully, Samsung will resolve the issue soon and we will get a fix.
Here is what the issue looks like.
Even if it is a software issue, it still is an embarrassing situation considering the price of the phone. Sadly, Samsung has not issued a comment on this weird glitch but we are hoping to hear from them soon. I am still waiting to get my hands on the Galaxy S22 Ultra so I cannot really comment on the situation.
