Off the back of our release date article for the Samsung Galaxy 22 Ultra, we are now receiving multiple reports of new renders of the handset based on a South Korean-based leaker thanks to LetsGoDigital and render artist Technizio Concept. Here’s the full video:
Dutch website LetsGoDigital and South Korean leaker Super Roader, a former Samsung Electronics employee in their wireless division, have collaborated on some top-secret Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra specification information. Whist said information hasn’t been made public, it’s not stopped them from employing Technizo Concept to produce some high-quality renders of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Spoiler alert; it looks beautiful.
What other Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra information do we have?
There’s plenty of speculation about the rear camera array right now which has an overall consensus on a ‘P-Shaped’ configuration. What we didn’t expect was a lack of camera bump, or island as the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is shaping up to have two telephoto cameras with 3x and 10x optical zoom, 108 MP ultra-wide lense but will apparently sit (more or less) flush within the handset. There’s a 40MP front-facing camera too, which is an absolute powerhouse. All four rear cameras have motion blur detection and a laser autofocus lens integrated also. We haven’t seen this in a flagship handset for a very long time, certainly not one with optical zoom capabilities.
We only have to look at the budget-focused Galaxy A32 for a good idea of Samsungs preferred camera configuration, which may become a feature for all future Galaxy models. This ‘waterdrop’ design also saves on weight, which will be a big focus for Samsung considering the S21 weighed in at 228 grams and ultimately looks a lot better.
Arriving in burgundy red, black, and white, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will in fact be the model name. LetsGoDigital confirmed Samsung is dropping the ‘Note’ brand in favor of a uniform Samsung Galaxy S22 line, at least according to their reliable sources anyway. The handset will however have a built-in stylus that is accessible to the bottom left of the device, which seems to have taken up all the room for any SD card storage. It’s not the best news, but lack of expandable storage is becoming a trend with leading handsets.
The appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is also taking a view of visual cues from the now-defunct Note line too. Sharper angles and smaller curves on bezels bring that 6.8-inch screen into a smart yet sleek design. Design choice should leak into the modified Android 12 build of One UI 4, hopefully bringing some ‘material you’ user interface features from the vanilla build.
In Europe, leaker Ice Universe has stated the upcoming Galaxy S-Series handsets will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 2200 with AMD RDNA 2 GPU, which is a bold move for Samsung to being their chip manufacturing in-house. Other parts of the world will most likely see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 895 SoC configuration. The S22 has now received 3C certification in China, which covered the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra for 25W wireless charging, but it should be capable of 45W wireless charging a 5,000 mAh battery at launch.
