Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra arrives months ahead of schedule in leaked hands-on photos displaying a blend of Galaxy S and Galaxy Note designs
FrontPageTech has leaked the first hands-on photos of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, months before the device's expected release. While OnLeaks already gave an idea of how the device would look with several renders, they are not the same as seeing photos of an actual device.
Presumably, these are of a prototype or an engineering sample; we doubt that Samsung would have a retail model lying around when the Galaxy S22 Ultra has only just entered mass production. According to FrontPageTech, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has five cameras, with four on the back and one on the front. As previous leaks have suggested, its primary camera is a 108 MP sensor that Samsung complements with a 12 MP ultra-wide and dual 10 MP telephoto sensors offering 3x and 10x optical zoom.
In short, this is the same camera arrangement as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, even down to the megapixels of each camera. However, in every functional sense, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is a successor to last year's Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Correspondingly, the handset has a built-in S Pen and flat edges, mirroring the Galaxy Note's design language. The display and back panel curve into each other too, with the smallest of side rails separating them.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will launch alongside the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy Tab S8 series. All devices are thought to arrive in February or March 2022, or at least two months after Xiaomi's next flagship smartphones debut.
