The first set of renders have officially arrived, kicking off the next several weeks of renders, leaks, and rumors surrounding Samsung's next flagship smartphone. The renders arrive from reliable source @OnLeaks, so we may very well be looking at Samsung's next flagship in these renders. Keep in mind the renders don't represent final hardware exactly. Even if these are based on the actual device, the final design could change.
Sooo... Here comes your very first and early look at the #Samsung #GalaxyS22Ultra and its quite "unique" rear camera housing design! (360° video + stunning 5K renders + dimensions)— Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) September 24, 2021

Anyway, on to the Samsung device in question. These renders represent the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the design highly resembles what a Galaxy Note smartphone should look like. The top and bottom sides of the phone are flat, and the phone has a cylindrical shape, which reminds us of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the one with the waterfall display. The S22 Ultra doesn't appear to have this degree of a curve, however.
Let's shift focus to the quad-camera setup. It looks like it borrows the same camera hardware from the Galaxy S21 Ultra, down to the layout and position of the cameras. This has been dubbed the P-shapeThe front-facing camera also appears to be unchanged.
Another notable feature of this phone is the slot for stowing an S Pen. This corroborates with two recent reports (1,2) about the phone carrying its own S Pen. Interestingly enough, the Galaxy S22 Ultra was reported to have the same size 5,000 mAh battery so Samsung might have managed to figure out how to re-arrange the phone's internals while making enough room to add the S Pen.
According to @OnLeaks leak partner Digit, The Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch dual-curved display with high refresh rate and high-resolution. The dimensions provided are 163.2 x 77.9 x 8.9mm with the maximum thickness at 10.5mm if you include the camera bump.
There is no Galaxy Note smartphone for 2021, but the Galaxy S21 Ultra supported the S Pen. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold3 also supported a new S Pen, assuring enough alternatives for a proper Galaxy Note 20 Ultra successor.
We won't hear about Samsung's next flagship until the first quarter of next year. Samsung's Galaxy S21 lineup launched in late-January of 2021, so we could expect it to arrive around the same time or later.
