It is the time of the year again where we see major flagship launches. Apple just launched their new iPhones, OnePlus canceled their flagship launch and Samsung, well, is doing something ridiculous this year with their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone.
It is now relatively evident and clear that the Note series has been officially discontinued by the brand and the S series will take over their entire flagship non-foldable business by incorporating the Note’s key elements like the S Pen slot. Some new renders by famous and accurate leaker @OnLeaks and Digit reveal some crazy design elements of this upcoming device that nobody expected.
According to OnLeaks and Digit, the new phone will come with the hole-punch selfie camera and candy bar shape of last year’s Note, along with stylus support and what looks like an actual stylus slot, again, like we see with the Note devices. The design on the front seems to resemble the Note 20 Ultra while the back is… a mess. The main rear camera bump seems to follow the same “plateau” design from its predecessor but with a very evident “P” shape. The letter could be a hidden reference to something but that is a story for another day.
The previous Ultra included a main 108MP wide-angle sensor, two 10MP telephoto sensors, and a 12MP ultrawide sensor on the back of the device. This year’s renders show the presence of what looks like a five-camera setup on the back of the Ultra phone.
We have no idea what crazy innovations Samsung will come up with this year and how they will manage to improve the already ridiculous specifications of their previous generation. It will be interesting to see what the best they can offer and how the phones compare once again to other flagships like the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Let the games begin!
