- Samsung might be renaming it’s top-end flagship in 2022
- The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra flagship will have a built-in silo for the S-Pen
- This would essentially mark the merger of the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note series
While controversial and laughed at initially, the Galaxy Note series was a trendsetter for the smartphone industry. From the very first model, Samsung Galaxy Note has packed all of its top-features into the biggest form factor possible. However, with smartphone screens becoming bigger over the year, it made less and less sense for Samsung to have a standalone Galaxy Note lineup in the portfolio. In fact, 2021 marked the first time that a Galaxy Note phone was not launched and the Galaxy S21 Ultra came with S Pen support. Well, now it looks like the Note lineup may truly be dead, with a S22 series model carrying on the legacy, not just in terms of features but even the branding. Sort of.
According to tipster FrontTron, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will actually be called the Galaxy S22 Note. That pretty confirms two things: that the Note series is finally dead, and that the Galaxy S22 Ultra/ S22 Note will feature a silo for the S Pen. Moreover, this move will help bring Note fans into the fold, in case they were waiting for the next-gen standalone Note model in 2022.

Next is the S22 Note 😉
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra/ Galaxy S22 Note smartphone has been leaked several times in the past, including specifications, renders, and live photos. These include a quad-camera setup with a 108MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide lens, 10MP telephoto unit with 3x zoom, and a separate 10MP telephoto lens with 10x zoom. A tall display with centre-aligned punch-hole design, curved corners, a housing for the S Pen, Type-C port, and metal body will also be part of the package. The phone will also get Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, Android 12 OS, and up to 12GB RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 series launch is reportedly slated for February next year, so stay tuned for further details.
