We’ve already heard quite a lot of leaks and speculations of the Samsung Galaxy S23 well before the device’s scheduled release date – but this reflects how keen people are for the follow-up to the Samsung Galaxy S22.
Release date for the Samsung Galaxy S23
The Samsung Galaxy S23 will possibly be launched in February 2023. We say ‘possibly’ not because of any leaks but because, apart from the Samsung Galaxy S21 (unveiled in January 2021), new models in the line have been continuously introduced in February. for years.
Samsung Galaxy S23 price
It could be equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S22 in terms of price, which starts at $799 / AU$1,249. That’s the exact launch price of the Galaxy S21. So Samsung can choose this three years in a row, even though the price may rise a little.
In terms of appearance, the Galaxy S23 series may be influenced by the Galaxy S22, with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, particularly, looking quite similar to its predecessor.
The smartphone will measure 6.43 x 3.07 x 0.35 inches, barely above the 6.42 x 3.06 x 0.35 inches of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This time, the two smallest rear camera sensors can be flush with the back of the phone, and the metal lens covers can be significantly larger.
The screen will have some improvements, such as improved HDR, better higher brightness, and greater color accuracy, but will remain 6.8 inches in size.
Camera Features and Battery Life
We’ve previously heard a lot about cameras, including the chance of a 200MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. We’ve also just heard a second and third time that a 200MP sensor is in the works, so that seems quite possible.
Another source indicates that the selfie camera will have a resolution of 12MP, up from 10MP on the S22, which would be a small but appreciated upgrade. However, another rumor says that the Galaxy S23 won’t include an under-display camera.
In addition to the camera, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a 5,000mAh battery, even though the standard S23 will continue to use 25W charging like its predecessor.
According to one report, at least in some countries, Samsung may employ a MediaTek chipset in the Samsung Galaxy S23 line. This would be a big change from previous models, which had featured Snapdragon or Exynos chips – often both, with diverse areas receiving different brands.
That estimate was backed up by one of the top phone experts; the S23 series will utilize its chipsets internationally (albeit with a language that provides some wiggle room), so the Galaxy S23 seems likely to go all out with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 engine.
Indeed, a source has now confirmed that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is getting used.
