Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: Angular design reaffirmed as 45 W charging time revealed
Much has already been written about the Galaxy S22 Ultra and its proposed design. While the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will resemble their predecessors, the Galaxy S22 Ultra's looks and form are closer to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Not only will the Galaxy S22 Ultra feature a squarer design than its predecessors, but it will also have a built-in S Pen. Samsung brought S Pen support to the Galaxy S series earlier this year with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, albeit without a dedicated slot for it.
Now, @UniverseIce has shared photos of various Galaxy S22 Ultra screen protectors on Twitter that reinforce the device's expected design. Notably, the Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to have thicker top and bottom bezels than those running along the sides of the display. However, it seems unlikely that the device has symmetrical display bezels; part of that may be because of the display's modest curvature, though.
Additionally, @UniverseIce has provided some more details about the charging speeds that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will offer. Unlike the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus, which Samsung will restrict to 25 W, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have up to 45 W at its disposal. Supposedly, this will allow the device to recharge its 5,000 mAh battery to 70% capacity after 35 minutes, much quicker than what the Pixel 6 Pro delivers but nowhere near the levels of Xiaomi's 120 W HyperCharge technology.
Unfortunately, Samsung is not expected to bundle an appropriate charger with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Instead, the company will require people to purchase a branded charger separately or use a third-party one that can recharge the Galaxy S22 Ultra at 45 W. The Galaxy S22 series is thought to be arriving early next year alongside the Galaxy Tab S8 series.
