New leak says phone known as Galaxy S22 Ultra will be called S22 Note
In late September, when the first Galaxy S22 Ultra renders appeared, a rumor took hold that Samsung would brand the device as the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra. That rumor is back on, but there is a twist.
Leaked renders and real-life images of Samsung's forthcoming highest-end flagship which we thought would be called be called the Galaxy S22 Ultra seem to showcase a Galaxy Note successor. The device has a boxy look and will apparently offer a slot for storing the S Pen stylus. It also stands out from the other two models.
For a while, it was rumored that the model with an S Pen silo would be marketed as the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra, the variant which we currently know as the Galaxy S22 Plus would be called the Galaxy S22 Pro, and the base model would be known as the Galaxy S22.
Later on, these leaks were put to rest by a prolific leaker who claimed the Note name wouldn't return. Late last month, a report backed that up by asserting Samsung has no plans to release a Note phone in 2022, or probably ever.
Leaker Tron has now reignited that rumor and he claims that there is no Galaxy S22 Ultra, and we can instead expect a Galaxy S22 Note.

Next is the S22 Note
The claim doesn't sound far-fetched, given not only the recent reports but also the ones from nearly three years ago that said Samsung would combine the Galaxy Note and S ranges down the line. A Note branding could help Samsung boost sales and make the Ultra model one of the best phones of 2022.
