Samsung recently launched the flagship Galaxy S22 series globally, including India, and the top-end Galaxy S22 Ultra has already started causing trouble to users. It has been reported that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is facing some screen flickering issues. Here are all the details you should know.
Galaxy S22 Ultra Display Issue Will Be Fixed Soon
Some Galaxy S22 Ultra users have reported that their handsets are showing a pixelated line at the top portion of the screen, where the clock widget is placed. The line appears when a user unlocks the device or plays YouTube videos.
This line is mostly seen when the display resolution is set to QHD+ and the color mode is set as Natural. If the user switches to another resolution and the Vivid mode, the issue seems to vanish.
It is also revealed that this display issue is mainly popping up for the Galaxy S22 Ultra models powered by the Exynos 2200 chipset and not the ones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform. That means S22 Ultra models that will soon start shipping in India should be free of this issue.
Several users took to Twitter and Reddit to raise the issue. You can have a look at the persisting display issue in the tweet attached below:
The issue is said to be a software bug and Samsung has acknowledged its presence. The company, via a Reddit post, has announced that it will soon release an update for the Galaxy S22 Ultra to fix the issue. Although, there’s no word on when this will happen.

I have a similar issue with my brand new S22 Ultra. When I turn on my screen, the natural mode takes over and give a yellowish tint because of the natural mode being such. When opening the gallery the screen comes back in Vivid mode with my customized color setup.
The issue is happening since I changed the color mode and also the screen resolution to the highest, WQHD+.
I have applied the latest update that was available on 25th February but the issue is still there.
