Samsung’s Galaxy Note line may be gone for now, but its spirit could live on in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The company is said to be building the S22 Ultra with an S Pen silo, similar to what the Note series has traditionally used. The phone is also said to come with angular edges, as reported by Samsung Leaker Ice Universe and publication Galaxy Club.
Renders of what the Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to be have also appeared online courtesy of Leaker AufLeaks, shows a device that would look very similar to what we would expect from a Galaxy Note 21 if one had popped up. It’s a square, flat-bottomed phone, like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and there’s a visible silo on the back of the device for the S Pen. The display is supposedly 6.8 inches tall and curved, and it’s expected to be is an S AMOLED display with a high refresh rate.
Interestingly, Samsung appears to have adopted an oddly shaped camera hump that is less pronounced than the current one if this rendering is correct. The S22 Ultra is expected to continue to maintain a quad camera setup like the S21 Ultra with a 108 MP main camera and three 12 MP cameras: telephoto, ultra wide angle, and a periscope zoom lens with 10x optical zoom.
Samsung’s Galaxy S line had grown closer and closer to the Note line in recent years. With the S21 Ultra, the Note had become more or less superfluous, as Samsung added S-Pen support to the flagship. The company would later bring that support into its foldable products, but some still missed the grade.
This week, a report from Fierce Wireless found that T-Mobile was dissatisfied with the cancellation of the Note, allegedly saying, “Many of our customers simply loved the Note range.” Foldable devices like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 have become attractive, but they are still not for everyone.
Samsung hasn’t officially discontinued the Note, but the company didn’t launch it this year and instead opted to redirect functionality from the Note to other devices. A Note-like S22 Ultra would do a lot to allay the concerns of customers who loved the overall aesthetic of the Note line, while keeping the Galaxy S brand and Samsung focusing on its foldable devices in the second half of the year.
