Samsung is gearing up for the next Galaxy S-series of flagship devices. The company is rumoured to launch the Galaxy S22 series early next year. If rumours are to be believed, the Galaxy S22 series will debut in January 2022. Samsung is yet to confirm the key details of its upcoming flagship smartphone series. While we wait for that to happen, alleged images of the Galaxy S22 Ultra have leaked online. The leaked details confirm some of the previous leaks while striking off some rumours. Let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra design images, and leaked details.
Front Page Tech shared several photos, which show the curved display, waterfall quadruple camera layout and thickness to accommodate the S Pen. The site also reported that Samsung had pushed the Galaxy S22 launch into February, with some rumors saying the company did that to make room for the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Details
With a slot for the S Pen, it’s hard to even call this a Galaxy S phone. The rounded edges, block design and thick body all look more Note than ever before. It’s almost eerie seeing how radical of a shift this is from the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s design, except for the camera array.
These photos further confirm the P-shaped camera layout shown in leaked device and case renders. Front Page Tech claims that there will be four cameras: 108MP wide-angle, 12MP ultrawide, 10MP 3x telephoto and 10MP 10x telephoto.
In terms of dimensions, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is tipped to measure 163.29 x 77.87 x 9.05mm — or 6.4 x 3.1 x 0.4 inches. Rumors currently peg the display to measure 6.8 inches diagonally, down from the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 6.9 inches. We expect the Galaxy S22 series to debut the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 895/898 processor, and we’d guess the phone will have 12GB of RAM to go along with the new powerful chip.
The front display is still curved along the edges (gross), with the same centered hole-punch camera at the top. Besides the slot for the S Pen, there aren’t any surprises on the bottom of the phone. You still have the usual speaker, USB Type-C port, and what appears to be a SIM card slot.
As per previous leaks, the phone is expected to have a 6.8-inch display with support for 120Hz. There is also a hole-punch front-facing camera and a speaker grill next to the USB Type-C charging port. As the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s release draws nearer, we expect to see and hear more about it.
