Rumors currently suggest that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will become the de facto replacement Galaxy Note fans have been waiting for, with the built-in S Pen and all. And while Samsung hasn’t officially announced the S22 lineup, it has teased it with pre-order reservations already underway.
The lack of an official announcement hasn’t stopped enthusiasts from creating their own mockups of what the Galaxy S22 Ultra might look like based on leaked information and rumors. The latest comes from the Dutch website Let’s go digital. And what the Dutch team has given us is nothing short of spectacular.
As previous rumors have suggested, the S22 Ultra appears to have an almost utilitarian design. There are no massive camera bumps or buttons stylized by Let’s Go Digital renders. What we see is an almost flush camera array with a curved screen on a plain glass slab. And as rumors have suggested, there’s also a slot for the beloved S Pen.
Apart from the apparent design of the phone, there are a few rumors circulating on the internet. For example, at the moment the phone is slated for a February 9 release, according to Ice Universe, which will likely be announced at this year’s Galaxy Unpacked 2022 event.
The monstrous handset is expected to sport a 6.8-inch LTPO 2.0 AMOLED display with 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Powering the device will likely be the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, or the Exynos 2200 in the markets. international. The phone is rumored to have between 8-16GB of RAM and 128GB-1TB of storage.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Samsung flagship if it didn’t have an industry-leading camera that could support the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Current leaks suggest that the S22 Ultra will retain the same 108MP resolution as last year’s Galaxy S21 Ultra, but with a supposed AI enhancement mode for greater brightness and clarity. The new phone is also rumored to have a super clear lens, whatever that means.
Other update rumors suggest that the next S Pen will have a latency of 2.98 milliseconds, which is a huge step up from the Note 20 Ultra. In addition to the more responsive stylus, a rumor claims that the S22 Ultra will offer 45W fast charging.
Since the Ultra range is Samsung’s premium product, it is often priced accordingly. Don’t be surprised if the S22 Ultra goes over $1,200.
Right now, there’s a huge hype surrounding the S22 Ultra. Whether it lives up to that hype will be determined in our review later this year.
