Samsung's latest Galaxy S22 series smartphones are practically confirmed for launch on 8th February at the firm's now traditional Unpacked event, and although there have been plenty of leaks regarding the "standard" flagship Samsung Galaxy S22, a fresh batch of renders has now appeared on gadget research destination MySmartPrice claiming to specifically depict the firm's largest (and almost certainly priciest) Galaxy S22 Ultra. 

The renders were initially shared by tipster Ishan Agarwal, who has added plenty of extra information alongside the images (below). 

The renders kindly published by Agarwal give us a good look at four colourways for the S22 Ultra: black, white, purple and green – and the included S Pen is black with a pop of colour on the top to match the colour of the device. 

Also, the tipster's images seem to support earlier speculation that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will essentially assume the role of Galaxy Note 22 Ultra (a notable omission from Samsung's S21 lineup last year) since it appears to look and perform just like a Note – on paper, at least.

According to MySmartPrice, Agarwal also thinks the rear camera setup will comprise 108MP main, 12MP ultrawide, 10MP telephoto (primary) and 10MP telephoto (secondary) snappers, plus a fifth unknown sensor (likely to be depth). 

Agarwal predicts that Samsung's flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a 3088 x 1440 resolution, covered with Gorilla Glass Victus Plus – an as-yet unannounced version of the protective glass favoured by Samsung for its premium smartphone screens. 

The tech analyst and enthusiast also thinks the Galaxy S22 Ultra will sport a 5,000mAh battery with 45W wired charging speeds. If true, that would make it Samsung’s fastest charging phone to date. 

As always, watch this space...
