Samsung may be looking to change the names of the Galaxy S22 series, and confuse consumers at the same time. The Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra surfaced in CAD-based renders quite recently. Those images revealed the designs of all three phones.
That being said, 91mobiles says that @OnLeaks told them that the Galaxy S22+ may be referred to as the Galaxy S22 Pro instead. Following that, Chun, a tipster, shared some additional naming information.
Most Galaxy S22 series phones may feature different names
He said that the Galaxy S22+ will indeed be called the Galaxy S22 Pro. The vanilla Galaxy S22 won’t offer a name change, it will still be called the Galaxy S22. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, well, it may include the ‘Note’ branding.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra may actually launch as the Galaxy Note 22 Ultra, if the tipster is to be believed. That may seem surprising, but recently we heard that Samsung is looking to revive the ‘Note’ series with the S22 Ultra.
That handset will not only support an S Pen, but it will ship with it docked, like the Galaxy Note 20, and its predecessors. The device will also offer a different design compared to the Galaxy S22 and S22+ / S22 Pro.
This change does make sense, to a degree
Therefore, this may even make sense, in a way. It will confuse consumers, though. If it ends up being true, Samsung will essentially release two Galaxy S-branded phones, and a Note-branded handset in January.
Do take this information with a grain of salt, of course, it hasn’t really been confirmed or anything of the sort. We’re sure we’ll get more information regarding this in the coming weeks / months.
The Galaxy S22 and S22+ / S22 Pro will resemble their predecessors when it comes to the design. The Galaxy S22 Ultra / Note 22 Ultra will offer a completely different-looking rear camera setup, and will have much sharper corners. Samsung is obviously looking to differentiate that device when it comes to its design.
