Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra render video imagines 2022-bound flagship based on recent rumours and leaks
LetsGoDigital has collated several rumours about future Galaxy S smartphones to imagine how the Galaxy S22 Ultra could look, the putative successor to this year's Galaxy S21 Ultra. Naturally, there is no guarantee that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will look anything like this, even though its design does not depart much from the one Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
As we have reported previously, Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a 6.81-inch display that contains an LTPO backplane. Unsurprisingly, the front of the imagined Galaxy S22 Ultra resembles its predecessor's. LetsGoDigital also assumes that next year's flagship Galaxy S smartphone will support Samsung's S Pen, a reasonable assumption in our opinion. Based on a report from South Korea, Samsung will hold fire on using under-panel cameras (UPC) in the Galaxy S22 series, although the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to feature one. Hence, the absence of a UPC in the renders that LetsGoDigital has created.
The website has also included the 200 MP Olympus-branded camera that it has included in previous renders. However, rumour has it that while Samsung plans to announce this camera sensor in September, it will debut in a Xiaomi flagship smartphone.
Finally, LetsGoDigital has imagined the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a built-in fan, as has become popular among gaming smartphones in the last few years. This idea stems from two trademarks that Samsung filed in May for the phrases 'Activate Fan Mode' and 'Unleash Your Fan Power'. LetsGoDigital has interpreted these phrases literally, but we do not necessarily think Samsung is referring to a physical fan here. Instead, we could see the company using these phrases when marketing another Fan Edition smartphone, possibly the rumoured Galaxy S21 Fan Edition.
Correspondingly, we doubt that Samsung has designed the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a built-in fan. Naturally, we could be wrong, but the impending release of the Galaxy S21 FE makes us question LetsGoDigital's interpretation here. Nonetheless, the most likely rumour about the Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to its Exynos SoC with an AMD RDNA 2-based GPU.
