You told us: You prefer one leaked Galaxy S22 Ultra design over the others

It looks like readers like the LG Velvet-style camera design.

Published onOctober 26, 2021

The year isn’t over yet, but we’ve already seen supposed renders for next year’s Galaxy S22 series phones. However, one of the big questions seems to be over the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s design, as we’ve now seen several possible designs for the rear camera housing.

The latest potential S22 Ultra camera housing design emerged last week, showing an LG Velvet-style raindrop camera layout. You can check this out below.

In other words, there aren’t one or two huge camera housings for all the sensors but rather cutouts in the rear cover itself for each sensor. So what do you think of this design compared to previously claimed designs? That’s what we asked you last week.

What do you think of the S22 Ultra’s raindrop camera?


We posted the poll on Thursday, October 21, with over 1,100 votes cast until now. The winning pick? Well, 55% of polled readers felt that this raindrop camera design was better than previously leaked designs. It’s hard to argue otherwise, as the LG Velvet’s own raindrop-style camera setup stood out last year.

Those who said it looked different but not necessarily better or worse made up just over 23% of the respondents. This was followed by polled readers who said that it was worse (12.76%), and the undecided respondents (7.75%).

We can’t think of many reasons why people would think this is worse than the P-shaped housing from previous S22 Ultra leaks. But one potential reason could be that this new design could attract more lint and dust around the individual camera sensors if the fit isn’t exact. An S22 Ultra with a P-shaped housing might only have debris collect around the housing itself.


  • Thiesi: All kinds of camera or whatever bumps are meh.
  • roaduardo: This looks much better. Way more sensible and mature.
  • Eoaoos: Looking forward to it. I’ll be upgrading from my Note 9
