Here's our first look at the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and it's not great news on multiple fronts

Here's our first look at the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and it's not great news on multiple fronts

2021 was a year of change for Samsung. Foldables have come into their own as the company's high-end focus, and a wild rumor made the rounds for months, suggesting we'd seen the end of Samsung's "enthusiast" Galaxy Note flagship series. Seeing as Unpacked came and went with no new Note smartphone (instead only giving us the Z Fold3 and the Z Flip3), it's pretty safe to say by now that the Galaxy Note is done for — at least for 2021.

But if you already know you're going to upgrade to the Galaxy S22 next year, all that really matters is the available color choices — and with today's leak, we're getting our first hints about what those could be.

Is someone really listening up there? Have our incessant pleas for the return of sensible phone sizes finally been heard? Some recent rumors sure have us wondering as much. And we're not talking about the return of some explicitly petite series like Sony's Xperia Compact line, either — there's increasing evidence of a trend towards the smaller for one of Android's most prominent flagship families.

Samsung's Galaxy S22 might feature a much smaller battery than its predecessor

Time and time again, we've seen evidence that consumers care deeply about how long their device can last on a single charge. That's never stopped smartphone manufacturers from prioritizing speed, displays, and a thin chassis above all else. Samsung's entire Galaxy S21 series sports some pretty solid battery life, but that might not be the case for its upcoming Galaxy S22 lineup.
