Leaked images reveal differences between S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra
Samsung's flagship Galaxy S22 series is all set to launch in January 2022. Now, images of alleged dummy models of the handsets have leaked online (via tipster Yogesh Brar), revealing their design details. The S22 and S22+ will have a "Contour cut" camera module and a glossy rear panel, whereas the S22 Ultra will have up to five lenses housed in the matte-finished panel.
Why does it matter?
- With the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung is departing from its traditional launch style.
- This time around, the Korean tech giant is reportedly planning to offer a Note-branded model (Galaxy S22 Ultra), alongside two S-series phones.
- This shift in strategy suggests that the Note range might not be dead after all and we may see possible annual upgrades.
