Our sources tell us that Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy S22 series in February, and judging by recent leaks, the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s exterior design should hold no mysteries. Of course, nothing is confirmed until it is, as there’s always a chance that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will defy expectations.
Speaking of which, a leaked photo that claims to reveal the design of the Galaxy S22 series’ camera housing has been making the rounds for a couple of days now (via NotebookCheck). And contrary to what other, more reliable leaks indicate, the photo in question suggests that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a P-shaped camera housing design, similar to what we saw in early CAD-based renders. In turn, this would mean that the previously-leaked Galaxy S22 Ultra hands-on photos depict a prototype model.
Or, this leak could be a remnant of an older prototype
The new leak reveals only a glass cover accessory that’s supposed to go over the camera housing. Even so, it could be that these accessory were based on early pre-production components. Samsung develops countless prototype pieces before it pushes a new flagship phone into mass production to experiment with different designs. This leak could be a remnant of that early process, and it seems more likely that the full-fledged Galaxy S22 Ultra hands-on photos are closer to the truth.
The P-shaped camera housing design has been a point of contention for many Samsung fans. The aesthetics are too removed from what customers expect, and the P-shaped camera just doesn’t seem to pair well with how the rest of the phone looks. At least by most accounts. Hopefully, Samsung views things the same way.
