What could be causing this screen tearing on my Samsung S22?

My Samsung S22 has started having these weird artifacts (see attachments). Sometimes it's lines, sometimes dots, sometimes some kind of screen tearing, or a combination of the three. It seems to be a software issue, as they are still visible when screen recording through a mirroring software (Vysor). Some apps seem more affected than others. My phone OS is up to date. I can't find any similar issues when googling it. Here are some clips to illustrate the issue:

Welcome to AC!
So this happens everywhere on your screen?
Was the device dropped?
Do you have any type of insurance on the phone ? Your probably going have to contact Samsung through Samsung members app

Pretty much everywhere, yes. The device hasn't been dropped (not that I know of, anyways), I really suspect this is a software issue as in some apps there are only a few pixels flashing and in others it's the whole screen glitching, and it shows in my mirroring software.
This is a work-provided phone, so I'm guessing my employer has insurance, but I'm not even sure this would be covered by insurance.

From what I've seen in your screenshot it looks like a bad display, back up anything important just in case it goes out and won't be able to .

Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Safe Mode and seeing if the glitches still occur. If they don't, then you know the problem is due to some 3rd party app. The challenge will then be to figure out which app -- that can be tedious, and might require uninstalling apps one by one until the problem goes away.

Since it is a company provided phone, you need to take it to your company's IT department and have it looked at and possibly replaced.
