Two years ago, the Ultra versions appeared in the line of Samsung flagships, which offer the best at the maximum price. And in order to distinguish them favorably against the background of other models, the company preferred to give them a slightly different design and better cameras.
This is how the Galaxy S22 Ultra should be. Although insider @FrontTron announced today that the company will abandon such naming. The bigger model of the series will be the Galaxy S22 Note and will be a kind of replacement for the Galaxy Note line. The smartphone will suit everyone who liked the Note’s large and slightly angular design, as well as the built-in stylus compartment. The company really tried to highlight the smartphone against the background of other Galaxy S22 models and in it the Note breed is visible.
Which naming the company will eventually choose for its bigger model is not so important. Much more important is what specs and features it plans to equip it by. At the moment, it is known that the Galaxy S22 Ultra or Galaxy S22 Note should offer a 120 Hz LTPO AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 chipset, up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, a 5000 mAh battery with a fast 45-watt charging. The main camera will receive 108 MP + 12 MP + 10 MP + 10 MP sensors.
Apple to overtake Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone supplier in Q4, analysts say
Apple may overtake Samsung to become the world’s largest smartphone supplier in the fourth quarter. This forecast was presented by the analytical company TrendForce based on supply chain data on the scale of smartphone production. According to analysts, Apple’s share of the smartphone market will reach 23.1% in the fourth quarter of this year.
It is expected that both strong iPhone demand during the holiday quarter; and better control over the supply chain than its competitors will help Apple to break out of the leadership. TrendForce says that despite some improvements, economic uncertainty and component shortages continue to hold back smartphone sales. However, negative factors affected Apple to a much lesser extent than other smartphone manufacturers. In the third quarter, the company unveiled four iPhone 13 series devices. In the same third quarter, iPhone production increased 22.6% from the previous three months to 51.5 million units.
The Holiday Quarter is a period when analysts expect Apple to be particularly successful. TrendForce, based on supply chain reports, suggests that Samsung, Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo will all see a decline in sales; while Apple’s share will grow from 15.9% in the third quarter to 23.2% in the fourth. This will be enough to overtake Samsung and take the leading position in the global smartphone market.
