Ice Universe: the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a built-in S Pen

Peter, 22 September 2021

The Galaxy Note series is dead, long live the... Galaxy S22 Ultra? Leakster Ice Universe has been told by two independent sources that the new S-series flagship will have a slot for the stylus.

The S21 Ultra was the first non-Note phone to support the S Pen, but having to use a special case just to have somewhere to put the stylus wasn’t ideal. The new Ultra will allegedly solve this particular headache, but it will require some design modifications.

For starters, the display will have a 19.3:9 aspect ratio, matching the Galaxy Note20 Ultra (the S21 phones all have 20:9 screens). This means that the phone will be wider, likely to make room for the stylus. Also, the corners of the device will be less rounded than the S21 series though note quite as square as the Notes.

Despite having to make room for a stylus within the phone’s frame, Ice writes that the battery capacity will be 5,000 mAh (500 mAh more than the Note20 Ultra and a match for the S21 Ultra).

We’re yet to see credible renders of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra that can corroborate the built-in S Pen story. Of course, the S22 launch is months away (will probably happen in January 2022), so reliable info is hard to come by.
