The first look of the Galaxy S22 Ultra has already been revealed. People are ecstatic that Samsung is bringing back the Note but at the same time, people have mixed opinions about the design of the camera module at the back. Some like it, some don't. There has been a rumor that Samsung is yet to decide the final design of the camera. The iterations seen so far include this P-shaped camera cutout and this 11 shaped dual-camera island design. But it looks like the final design may have neither of these designs because this is apparently what the camera on the back of the S22 Ultra looks like. Letsgodigital made these renders based on the information they got from a former employee of the wireless division of Samsung Electronics in South Korea. On top of that, Ice Universe is also suggesting that Samsung may indeed go with this design for the S22 Ultra.
Even though we don't have concrete evidence to back this claim, and you know what you need to do until further reports come out but this design is personally my favorite one among the three leaked designs. It reminds me of LG Velvet that had similar camera cutouts which honestly looked clean and minimalistic. So definitely hoping that Samsung to go with this design. Ice Universe further mentions that this design is optimal as far as reducing the weight of the phone is concerned. Because the addition of S Pen will add up to the overall weight and Samsung needs to remove something to minimize the weight. The current weight of the S21 Ultra is 228grams and the S Pen weighs around 20 grams. So removing the camera hump not only helps them to manage the weight but also makes the phone look more premium.
Anyway, a lot of you were asking me whether or not the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have support for a microSD card slot. The S21 Ultra didn't have an expandable slot option but considering the last Galaxy Note, the Note 20 Ultra had support for MicroSD card slot, people were wondering if its successor has one too. Well, it looks like neither of the phones in the Galaxy S22 series has MicroSD card support. The storage configuration will remain the same as last year, 128 GB base and 512 GB high end.
The Unpacked Event part two took place today and if you've missed it then let me tell you missed absolutely nothing. They kept a whole dedicated Unpacked Event just to announce new colors for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Watch 4. No new product announcements, no new software feature announcement, an event full of people talking new Z Flip 3 colors. What a complete waste of time. Samsung should be cautious not to devalue the Unpacked Events like this or people may start not taking these events seriously next time. Of course, let me know what do you think down in the comments.
