Leaked Galaxy S22 Ultra is basically a Galaxy Note with a weird camera bump68
Here’s our first look at what the Galaxy S22 Ultra should look like.
The Galaxy Note is back! Sort of.
Corroborating recent rumors of a squared-off design, these Galaxy S22 Ultra renders make it clear that Samsung has taken inspiration from the seemingly discontinued Galaxy Note series. Adorning the front of the next Galaxy flagship is a 6.8-inch screen that features curved edges on either side and extremely thin bezels.
Turning the smartphone over is where things get especially interesting. Earlier this year Samsung introduced its new ‘Contour Cut’ camera bump, but less than twelve months on it seems to be ditching the camera module.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra should be a worthy Galaxy Note 20 Ultra successor
Arguably the most exciting part of this Galaxy S22 Ultra leak is what lies on the bottom of the phone — a dedicated S Pen slot, something that until now has remained a Galaxy Note exclusive. The feature will undoubtedly be a welcome addition, and it gives loyal Samsung customers a true successor to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which was originally released in August 2020.
Built-in S Pen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra also builds on Samsung’s commitments this year. It added S Pen support to the Galaxy S21 Ultra and released dedicated cases capable of carrying the stylus. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 also supports the stylus, with Samsung again releasing dedicated cases. None of this year’s efforts matched the seamless integration of a built-in S Pen on the Galaxy Note line, though.
What else does the Galaxy S22 Ultra offer?
The bottom of the Galaxy S22 Ultra is home to a USB-C port, speaker, and microphone. That’s in addition to the aforementioned S Pen. Moving up the right side of the phone reveals a power button and volume rocker.
As for the inside, Samsung is expected to fit the Galaxy S22 Ultra with the Snapdragon 898 in the US and the homegrown Exynos 2200 with an AMD GPU in Europe and other international markets. A 5,000mAh battery is on the cards too. That's the same size as the S21 Ultra battery and is quite impressive considering the S Pen usually leads to a smaller cell.
