Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to be a game changer, since the S21 Ultra didn’t give us enough of a jump from the S20 Ultra. We’ve yet to see major leaks, except for some speculations about the camera, but luckily designers are on the case, having already created a Galaxy S22 Ultra render or two. There’s a video below, courtesy of designer 4RMD.
This smartphone has a new elegant premium design with a vertical camera centered on the back and a secondary screen at the bottom of the module. Shown in 8 colors, the device is said to have a revolutionary camera, that includes a main 108 MP shooter, although I have a feeling that 144 MP is the next step. There’s also a 16 MP ultrawide shooter, laser focus, 12 MP telephoto with 10X periscope camera, plus up to 120x digital zoom. There’s a MicroCam 5 MP 60X magnification cam similar to the Moto G100 one.
There’s 8K video capture and Night Mode too. The 40 MP selfie camera is under the panel this time around. We’ve got a 6.9 inch Dynamic AMOLED 4K display here with a 240 Hz refresh rate and a secondary back screen with always on display and more features. Samsung finally inaugurates the new Exynos x AMD GPU, the most powerful chip in a smartphone. There’s 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB or 1 TB of storage. The battery goes to 6000 mAh with 65W charging. S Pen support is also here and a $1199 price tag is also here.
The device is expected to drop in January, like the S21 series did. I’m not very sure if this new camera design would be loved, but at least it’s a change from the wraparound corner camera. I actually dig the Phantom Black, Phantom Violet, Phantom Pink hues, which the public will probably also love. The animation video is quite well done and well illustrated, so I recommend you check it out. I’m also curious about the way the main cam makes the device sit on a flat surface.
