The first Galaxy S22 Ultra leaks have arrived courtesy of respected leaker OnLeaks, and it looks like a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. The Galaxy S22 Ultra even has a built-in S Pen, but the huge downward point thumb has caught people's attention for the wrong reasons.

There have been plenty of rumours about the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy Note 22 Ultra of late, with many started by Ice Universe. Most recently, the renowned leaker has settled on the notion that Samsung will borrow from the Galaxy Note series' signature design for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, rather than release both smartphones.

Now, OnLeaks has published renders of the Galaxy S22 Ultra that corroborate Ice Universe's claims. As the images show, the Galaxy S22 Ultra looks more like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In effect, Samsung will release the next Galaxy Note smartphones under the Galaxy S series.

Apparently, the Galaxy S22 Ultra measures 163.2 x 77.9 x 8.9 mm, within which it houses a 6.8-inch display. If these measurements are correct, then the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be shorter than the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as wide as the Galaxy S21 Ultra and thicker than both of them.

As expected, the Galaxy S22 Ultra houses an S Pen, support for which Samsung introduced to the Galaxy S series with the Galaxy S21 Ultra. However, Samsung has done away with the smart camera housing from the Galaxy S21 series. For some reason, the company has opted for a P-shaped housing, a shape that some people have likened to a thumbs down.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S22 series later this year or in early 2022 at the latest. The Galaxy S22 Ultra should be joined by the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus, alongside which Samsung may also launch the Galaxy Tab S8 series.
