While the Galaxy Note’s fate is still in limbo, it appears that Samsung is bringing back its design with a slot for the S-Pen with the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra. Ahead of its launch next year, leaks of the Galaxy S22 Ultra reveal what appears to be an engineering unit–confirming a lot of initial rumors.
Revealed by Frontpagetech, this engineering unit of the Galaxy S22 Ultra has a squared-off design that is very reminiscent of recent Galaxy Note phones. The cameras in the back now have individual camera bumps and are reminiscent of the waterdrop design used on the LG Velvet.
One of the four cameras is a periscope module, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to have a 108-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 10-megapixel 3X telephoto camera, and 10-megapixel 10X periscope camera. If the setup is familiar, that’s because they are the same set of snappers used on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Unlike the Galaxy S21 Ultra, however, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has a slot for the S-Pen, which basically confirms that it will be the spiritual successor of the Galaxy Note series.
Based on previous leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will pack a 5000mAh battery with support for 45w charging, along with either an Exynos 2200 processor with AMD RDNA2 GPU or a Snapdragon 898 processor. Color options will include black, white, green, and red.
