Galaxy S22 Ultra could get a memory downgrade that you can live with

It's also rumored to have a handy camera upgrade that makes shots clearer and reduces glare.

What you need to know

  • The specs sheet for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has leaked.
  • The camera on Samsung's higher-end flagship variant could see a significant improvement.
  • However, the device's maximum memory and storage options may be downgraded compared to its predecessors.

All eyes are now on the Samsung Galaxy S22 series following the Galaxy S21 FE debut earlier this week. While there hasn't been a shortage of leaks about the upcoming flagship lineup in recent months, a new leak has revealed some interesting feature upgrade and downgrade for the device.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra could include 8GB of RAM for the base model and max out at 12GB, if a specs sheet posted by Zaryab Khan on Twitter is anything to go by (via WinFuture). Its internal storage capacity may also be limited to 512GB, with the base variant shipping with 128GB.

If the internal document is correct, it will be a bit of a bummer for power users who have come to expect the Galaxy S22 Ultra to have the same memory and storage options as Samsung's best Android phones in 2021. The Galaxy S20 Ultra and S21 Ultra, on the other hand, have a minimum of 12GB of RAM and a maximum of 16GB, with their internal storage reaching up to 1TB.

Having said that, an 8GB RAM won't have much of an impact on the phone's performance. By any standard, it is still a flagship feature.

The leaked specs sheet also reveals some details about the phone's camera, battery capacity, and color options. While the memory configuration might disappoint some consumers, it's not all bad news for Samsung's upcoming top-end variant.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S22 Ultra's main camera will boast a new feature dubbed "Super Clear Glass," presumably a branding of Gorilla Glass. It will supposedly minimize reflection and glare in photos, resulting in clearer shots.

The rest of the leaked specs corroborate previous reports that claimed the phone would have a 108MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, two 10MP telephoto cameras, and a 40MP selfie snapper. It's also said to pack a 5,000mAh battery. Unsurprisingly, the leak claims the device will be powered by a 4nm-based Exynos 2200 chipset.

As for the color options, the device may come in phantom white, phantom black, olive green, and burgundy colorways.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
