The prolific leaker Ice Universe has made new predictions concerning the Galaxy S22 series' Ultra variant. Not only does the tipster believe that it will introduce the mythical Samsung/AMD mobile GPU, it will also debut with a potential breakthrough in optical zoom for smartphones. The putative flagship may also drop the current central punch-hole selfie shooter for one that hides under the display.

Despite the projected impending rise of foldable and rollable devices, Samsung is still expected to produce "conventional" updates for the Galaxy S flagship line in 2022. Should one of them be the third-gen Ultra variant, it might offer a host of new and significant advancements in various areas of smartphone technology.

According to the leaker Ice Universe, they are to include the new 'Radeon for mobile devices' GPU, not to mention an under-display camera (completely first-party in that case). Then again, both potential new specs have been linked to the Galaxy S22 series before.

However, the tipster now also asserts that the S22 Ultra will launch with "continuous optical zoom". This possible latest thing in rear-camera technology is currently thought to benefit 'basic' (2x to 3x, say) levels of zoom before a dedicated telephoto lens kicks in.

Continuous zoom is reportedly based on variable focal length conferred by modules that allow lenses to move freely within them, such as the one recently unveiled by the company O-FILM. However, Ice Universe claims that the S22 Ultra's new form of zoom has, again, been developed by Samsung itself, within its own electromechanics and semiconductor units.

These new and interesting potential big things in premium mobile device tech may be combined with 200MP Olympus-branded cameras in the S22 line-up. Furthermore, it is slated to debut with a new (possibly "Armor"-clad) chassis that may embrace the Minion-cam trend and with further S-Pen integration.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
