More evidence is piling up to support the unusual Galaxy S22 Ultra design that got leaked a couple of weeks ago. A series of new leaked renders that seemingly originate from various third-party manufacturers have emerged via Gizmochina, and they all double down on the design cues seen before.
Once again, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is depicted as having an odd, P-shaped camera housing featuring four cameras, a laser autofocus sensor, and an LED flash. In essence, it's the same camera layout as the one you'll see on the back of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, except the camera housing itself got redesigned into a protruding P-shaped block.
A couple of these new leaked cases have a slim design, but there are also two renders of industrial-looking thick protective cases. Check the gallery below for more.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra dedicated S Pen slot reappears
Every Galaxy S22 Ultra render leaked in recent weeks suggests that the upcoming flagship will have a dedicated S Pen slot. There was one time when this characteristic was missing, but now we seem to be back on track with the S Pen-related leaks.
The future of the Galaxy Note series is uncertain, but with no Galaxy Note 21 coming this year, Samsung may want to effectively turn the Galaxy S22 Ultra into a Note device, even though it might not have the name. And if true, then a dedicated S Pen slot is the most important design element a Galaxy phone needs to adopt before it can even attempt to fill the shoes of the Galaxy Note.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will be launched in January, according to rumors, and it won't be alone on stage at Galaxy Unpacked. Standard and Plus models should accompany it, though neither has a dedicated S Pen holster, judging by recent leaks.
