According to XEETECHCARE, the input delay on the Galaxy S22’s S Pen stylus will come in at 2.8 milliseconds—not bad at all when you consider the figure 9 milliseconds for the previous version of the accessory.
And if you’ve been thinking that Samsung Galaxy S22 rumors and leaks may be slowing down between now and the expected February launch, then forget about it. This is the latest information to reach us about the Ultra model and the S Pen stylus that comes with it.

Samsung itself has made it clear that S Pen support will be coming to more of its devices in the future – though it’s disappointing that no other phone has yet offered an integrated S Pen dock like the Note. This is something that we hope will change.
