Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will reportedly not receive a Note variant when it hits the store shelves sometime next year. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has been floating around the rumor mill for quite some time now. Moreover, the phone has been subject to a myriad of leaks lately. If rumors making the rounds online are anything to go by, Samsung will launch the hotly anticipated smartphone in January 2022.
While nothing is set in stone yet, the Galaxy S22 Ultra continues to make appearances on the web in the form of leaks. Last month, a new set of renders for the Galaxy S22 Ultra surfaced online, revealing the phone’s front and rear panels. Interestingly, the leaked images suggest that the phone’s outward appearance will be similar to the Note series. However, a new report claims that the smartphone will not receive a Note branding.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Will Not Have a Note Variant
The next-gen Galaxy S22 Series smartphones comprise three models including the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Galaxy S22 Plus, and the Galaxy S22. Previously surfaced reports suggested that the Galaxy S22 Ultra could bear the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra moniker. The rumor mill began churning out this speculation since the phone featured a built-in S Pen slot. Moreover, it is tipped to oust Samsung’s Galaxy Note Series.

In another tweet, the leaker revealed that the Galaxy S22 Ultra moniker has been confirmed. Aside from that, he stated that the phone will not be dubbed, the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra. However, the phone will boast an array of Note-Series-like features.
Other Leaks & Speculations
A set of new renders suggest that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will adopt the same design as the Galaxy Note 20, featuring four sharp corners. It is likely to sport a 6.8-inch Super AMOLED LTPO display that offers a 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+ screen resolution. Furthermore, it could ship with Snapdragon 898 SoC or Exynos 2200 SoC based on the region. Also, it will pack an AMD RDNA2 GPU under the hood.
The phone will come with 12GB of RAM and offer a hefty 512GB of built-in storage capacity. In the optics department, the Galaxy S22 Ultra could house a 12MP ultrawide camera, a couple of 10MP telephoto lenses, and a 108MP main camera at the back. The phone could draw its juices from a 5,000mAh battery. The battery will probably come from Amperex Technology Limited and Samsung ADI.
For those unaware, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds draw power from batteries from China’s Amperex Technologies. The word on the street is that the vanilla Galaxy S22 version will come with a 3,800mAh battery. The Galaxy S22 Plus could get a 4,500mAh battery, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a robust 5,000mAh battery.
