The Galaxy S22 Ultra is now official and available to pre-order, but will this brand new smartphone arrive early? Naturally, anyone that has reserved a unit in advance, or placed an early pre-order will be at the front of the line and eager to receive this exciting and powerful new Samsung smartphone. There are some indications that some Galaxy S22 Ultra units have shipped already, but Samsung hasn't made any announcements to confirm this.

There is great anticipation around Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra thanks to it being one of the most interesting S-series phones ever released. Previously exclusive to the Galaxy Note series, the Galaxy S22 Ultra includes a slot to store an S Pen inside the body of the phone, making it available at any time. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also has the fastest processor, the best cameras of any Samsung phone, and the brightest screen ever. It's also the first smartphone to be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+, which seems to be among the most scratch-resistant smartphone glass ever manufactured, approaching that of sapphire glass.

While buyers might want the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to ship early, it doesn't seem likely. Although there have been some early videos appearing and reports of shipping emails being sent out, this does not appear to be a widespread phenomenon. In fact, digging into those reports, it seems to be tech reviewers that are the ones getting early access. This is a fairly common practice since hands-on reviews help companies to promote and ultimately sell more phones. The good news is that the official release date is actually quite close. When Samsung announced the Galaxy S22 Ultra, it gave a release date of February 25th, 2022, and that's just a few days away.

Galaxy S22 Ultra Shipping Facts

Samsung states that every customer will receive an email with tracking information and an estimated delivery date once their order has shipped. If there is any concern about not receiving the email, progress can also be tracked by visiting the 'My Orders' page on and clicking 'Order Details.' If the Galaxy S22 Ultra order has shipped, there will be a 'Track Item' button to get the latest information on the status of the order.

On the Galaxy S22 Ultra order page, Samsung provides an estimated arrival date for new purchases. However, the exact estimated shipping date varies depending on the color and storage option chosen when ordering. If opting for any of Samsung's 'exclusive' colors, then the company states that shipping will commence in 5 to 6 weeks. Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra will arrive sooner for those that reserved a phone in advance and pre-ordered, possibly as early as February 25.
