The beginning of 2022 should see the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series – three new camera smartphones, all expected to be 5G-ready. The most eagerly anticapted of the three 5G phones is the flagship Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G, successor to the S21 Ultra. Based on the plentiful rumours around the new phone, Technizo Concept has created concept renders of the new phone, in corporation with LetsGoDigital, who have kindly allowed us publish them.
There’s been a plethora of rumours and predictions in terms of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G’s possible premium features – it’s expected to be powered by a new 4nm Exynos SoC with AMD GPU and support for ray-tracing and variable rate shading. It’s also thought that this will possibly result in a new cooling solution, in the form of a built-in fan.
It was discovered by LetsGoDigital that Samsung had filed a trademark for Active Fan Mode – this information, combined with gaming smartphones with a built-in fan, like the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel and Nubia RedMagic 5s, hitting the market, makes it a distinct possibility that Samsung may also work on such a fan for its smartphones. If this were to be the case, it’s extremely likely that this fan would debut in the flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra.
New 4nm Exynos SoC
At the start of this month chip manufacturer, AMD, announced at Computer 2021 that the company has started a cooperation with Samsung for its upcoming Exynos SoC. This will come with an AMD RDNA2 GPU with support for ray-tracing and variable rate shading – both features will make games on your mobile fantastic and a built-in fan would surely help to compensate for the heat during intensive gaming sessions.
Sales for the S21 series were disappointing, so the Korean manufacturer is expected to throw everything it’s got at new Galaxy S22 series and we expected to see a significantly upgraded camera system in the S22 Ultra. An ISOCell 200MP image sensor with optical zoom and sensor-shift OIS technology is rumoured. It’s also rumoured, and likely, that the camera system will be developed in cooperation with the Japanese camera and lens manufacturer, Olympus.
