From Galaxy S to Galaxy S22, here's a timeline of Samsung's flagship Android phones in pictures

We've put together a chronological round-up of all the major Samsung Galaxy S smartphones from the first to the most recent.

Samsung continues to be one of the most popular phone manufacturers in the world and with good reason. The company's Galaxy S flagship smartphones often pack the greatest tech, innovative designs and easy-to-use functionality that users love. The Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra launched as Samsung's 2022 flagship phones, replacing the S21 models from the previous year. Come with us on a trip down memory lane and see how Samsung has changed its devices in our history of the Galaxy S.

Samsung Galaxy S



It all started in 2010, which showed us what Samsung and Android was going to look like. First released in June 2010, the Samsung Galaxy S ran on Android 2.1 and had an 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display. It also had a single-core 1GHz processor and 0.5GB of RAM. The rear camera was 5-megapixels, while the front was just 0.3-megapixels. The thing that really stood out about it was the customisation of Android. Although we'd seen some of TouchWiz on other devices, it felt like it worked on the Galaxy S.


Samsung Galaxy S II



Embracing widgets, the Galaxy S II looked less like an iPhone. Also known as the Samsung Galaxy S II, the refreshed phone was released in April 2011 and sported a similar 800 x 480 screen as its predecessor. The processor got a bump up to dual-core and 1.2GHz, and there was 0.75GB of RAM. The rear camera was 8-megapixels this time, with a 2-megapixel front-facing cam. Samsung embraced widgets with the Galaxy S II, something that rivals HTC was really pushing.


Samsung Galaxy S III



It felt like an evolution in design, softer, more curved, with a higher resolution display. Again sticking with the Roman numerals, so therefore technically known as the Samsung Galaxy S III, this model came out in May 2012 and was the first in the series to have a HD screen. Its resolution of 1280 x 720 was pretty revolutionary at the time. It also sported Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There was a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM on launch, although Samsung stuck with an 8-megapixel rear camera. It was slightly more sculpted than the previous phone and it felt like Samsung wanted to push the design a little harder.
