The first Galaxy S22 Ultra renders reveal an S Pen storage slot and a Tetris-shaped rear camera housing


Galaxy S22 Ultra

I know, we are still in September but if you’ve already begun wondering about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S22 flagship you are in luck because the first leaked renders have been released which reveal two important details and a curvier design.

The leaked renders come courtesy of Digit.in and @OnLeaks, showing the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a flat top and bottom edge but with curved sides. Besides the USB-C port and speaker chamber on the bottom edge, the render shows that the Galaxy S22 Ultra has an S Pen storage slot on the left-most side, which means you won’t need a special case for the stylus this time around.

The other confirmed detail (at least with regards to the render) is the presence of an odd-shaped camera housing on the top left of the rear panel that bears a resemblance to the classic Tetris game. The Galaxy S22 Ultra would appear to have four cameras which is could consist of a 108MP main camera with a selection of other sensors on the rear and a 40MP selfie camera on the front.

What about the specs?

Well, the Galaxy S22 Ultra apparently has a 6.8-inch curved AMOLED panel which will almost certainly sport a high resolution and a fast refresh rate. Counting the camera housing, the flagship will have a thickness of 10.5mm and 8.9mm without.

The presence of the storage slot all but confirms the demise of the Galaxy Note series as an entity, with its S Pen function being shared out to both the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy Z Galaxy Fold 3 during 2021, and also to the Galaxy S22 next year. Hopefully, the addition of the slot doesn’t impact too much on battery capacity which is believed to be around the 5,000mAh mark.
