It looks like Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, will borrow more than ever from the DNA of the Galaxy Note. In fact, a recently leaked official rendition released by Evan Blass confirms that the phone is pretty much a note in all respects except the name. Wider screen with more writing surface? To verify. Silo S Pen? To verify. Top and bottom flat? Yeah. At the rear is a network of cameras that sticks tightly to the layout of the S21 Ultra.
Personally, I think the S21 Ultra was one of the boldest and best looking phones Samsung has ever produced, especially this sleek matte black version. He owned the big camera bump in a way that looked good.
While I’m happy to see that Samsung has found room for the sensors in a way that keeps the rear of the device uniform, there’s certainly something a little more bland about this design. It looks quite like a Note 10 Plus or Note 20 Ultra with a redesigned camera system, but maybe that’s exactly what some Samsung fans want. Real-world photos of the S22 Ultra were also leaked recently, and again, it looks pretty good in black.
Anything that can help increase sales of the company’s traditional phones is probably the right decision. The company is happy to talk about the foldables’ momentum, but the S21 line would have been disappointed with its retail performance.
Based on past history, Samsung is expected to announce the S22 family in February.
Microsoft’s new Windows 11 operating system is here. It includes a new user interface, a redesigned Start menu, a revamped Microsoft Store, and much more. Microsoft compares Windows 11 to a familiar family home that has been renovated, but are the renovations complete?
