The Galaxy S22 Ultra is edging closer to being released, possibly as the Galaxy S22 Note. In that vein, Samsung has confirmed that it plans to release the SM-S908U in China, seemingly with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The same variant has appeared on the Camera FV-5 database with an ISOCELL HM3 camera.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra, now thought to be called the Galaxy S22 Note, is still over a month away from being unveiled. However, the device has already appeared as the SM-S908U on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, as we have discussed separately. Now, the Galaxy S22 Note has turned up elsewhere under the same model number.

On the one hand, Samsung has listed the SM-S908U on a support website. The website, a screenshot of which we have embedded below, does not provide any details about the SM-S908U. In saying that, it confirms that the SM-S908U is an actual model number and that it will launch in China. Hence, Samsung will release its next flagship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in China.

On the other hand, someone has also submitted the SM-S908U on the Camera FV-5 database. Theoretically, someone could have faked this result, although this does not appear to be the case with a global variant of the Redmi Note 11 4G. Previously, Ice Universe has alleged that the Galaxy S22 Ultra or Galaxy S22 Note will rely on the ISOCELL HM3 as its primary camera, matching the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The ISOCELL HM3 is a 108 MP sensor, but Camera FV-5 describes the SM-S908U as having a 12 MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture and a 2.4 μm pixel size. The ISOCELL HM3 can mimic a 12 MP camera sensor though, yielding 2.4 μm-wide pixels as a result. Samsung is tipped to have improved the ISOCELL HM3 for the Galaxy S22 Note, albeit it is unclear how at this stage.
