Camera bumps are pretty common in smartphones these days. Flagship devices tend to have very thick ones, especially if they come with a periscope camera. The Samsung Galaxy S series isn't an exception, but Samsung aims to change that with the Galaxy S22 series.

According to Ice Universe, the rear of the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will be flat. Since the camera bumps for the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ are not too thick, it won't be surprising if Samsung managed to even out the back. This would allow them to sit flush on flat surfaces without a phone cover. Also, both models are expected to have thinner display bezels, which will result in a higher screen-to-body ratio.

The tipster also had an update on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. It was previously believed that Samsung might upgrade the 10MP cameras to 12MP. However, the rear quad-camera will be maintained at 108MP+12MP+10MP+10MP instead. On the bright side, Samsung will allegedly use an improved version of the ISOCELL HM3 sensor as the main camera. The two 10MP telephoto cameras will also be using new Sony mobile image sensors.

Of course, there's no proof that these specs are accurate, so please take the news with a grain of salt. With that said, what else are you hoping to see from Samsung's next flagship smartphone series? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for more updates about it.
