Usually, when a device is starting to get leaked online, it’s in small bits: some info about the display here, a new camera bump there, some talk about colors on the other side and, piece by piece, we manage to make out its design after weeks, if not months, of collecting information.
That is not the case with Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the S22 Ultra, which is supposed to take center stage sometime in 2022. Images of the smartphone have leaked online via digit.in, showing us the device in all its glory, from all angles.
The renders show us a smartphone that looks a little like the Galaxy Note series, with flat edges on top and a curved display that wraps around the sides. We can immediately guess a slot at the bottom, a clear indicator that the smartphone is going to house an S Pen.
Sooo… Here comes your very first and early look at the #Samsung #GalaxyS22Ultra and its quite "unique" rear camera housing design! (360° video + stunning 5K renders + dimensions)— Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) September 24, 2021

The device’s measurements are around 163.2 x 77.9 x 8.9mm. In terms of thickness, if we are to include the camera bump, the phone measures 10.5mm.
The curved display is a 6.8 inch one and we expect it to be a high resolution AMOLED with a high refresh rate.
Of course, the cameras are expected to be showstoppers but, unfortunately, we don’t have any information about them just yet, aside from the fact that one of them will be a periscope telephoto lens.
The previous Ultra model had a 108MP wide-angle sensor, two 10MP telephoto sensors and a 12MP ultrawide set up on the back, so if those cameras are any reference for the improvements to come, we’re excited to see them.
The camera module on the other hand, well that’s a whole different story altogether – be it that you call it P-shaped or meat cleaver-shaped, the fact still stands that it won’t be the most subtle camera module out there. We’ll let you guys decide how you feel about it.
The ongoing trend at the moment seems to be large camera modules with unique shapes so we bet it’s not the last we’ll see of this and other similar designs.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any new information and as soon as we get it, we’ll tell you all about it.
