Updated (January 22, 2022; 8:00 AM ET): The article has been updated to include the latest leaked information and updates regarding the Samsung Galaxy S23.

Samsung continues to be the top dog of the Android land, and a significant reason is the Galaxy S flagship lineup. It’s been (almost) a year since Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 series. And, as it is with every other smartphone out there, rumors and leaks about its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, have started to heat up. Samsung has announced that it will launch its highly anticipated Galaxy S23 smartphone series at the Galaxy Unpacked event on Feb 1, and fans are eagerly waiting to see what the new phone has to offer.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

The Galaxy S23 is expected to be a major upgrade over its predecessor, the Galaxy S22, with a range of new features and improved specs. Ahead of its official unveiling, a lot of information about the Samsung Galaxy S23, including its specs, price, features, and availability, has leaked. In this post, we will provide an overview of everything that has been leaked and rumored about the Galaxy S23 and provide our thoughts on what we can expect from the upcoming Samsung flagship.

Note: This article will be regularly updated as more information about the Samsung Galaxy S23 becomes available.


Release Date & Price

On January 10, 2023, Samsung officially confirmed that it will be hosting its Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1, 2023, to unveil the new Galaxy S series. Unlike the past few events, this one will take place in person. It will kick off at 10 AM PST (1 PM EST) and will be live-streamed on the Samsung website, Samsung Newsroom, and Samsung’s YouTube channel,

While the company’s press release doesn’t explicitly mention the name “Galaxy S23,” it has announced that the event will introduce the next generation of the Galaxy S series, which is widely speculated to be the S23. The company stated that these new devices will raise the bar and set new standards for premium experiences, positioning them as the “epitome” of the ultimate premium experience.

In addition to the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung is also expected to launch its Galaxy Book 3 lineup at the event. To know more about the products that could be unveiled at the event, check out our ‘Samsung Galaxy Unpacked: What to expect’ guide right here.

As for pricing, it seems that Samsung will keep the price of the Galaxy S23 series the same as the Galaxy S22 — at least in the US. The information is based on the Reddit post (spotted by 9to5Google) that claims that the S23 will cost $799, the S23 Plus could be priced at $999, while the top-of-the-line S23 Ultra will cost $1,199. However, depending on inflation and economic conditions, we could also see an increase of $50 or $100 per model.

Design and Colors

Samsung Galaxy S23 Render 3

Samsung will reportedly ditch the contour-cut design in favor of a Galaxy S22 Ultra-like design on the Galaxy S23. The upcoming flagship won’t feature a protruded camera module and will instead come with discrete camera lenses protruding outwards. However, apart from this change, the Galaxy S23 will look like a typical S-series device with three camera sensors aligned vertically on the back, a glass-and-metal sandwich build, and thin bezels on the front.

Some rumors also claim that the standard Galaxy S23 will be both slightly taller and wider than the Galaxy S22. This could be due to the slightly larger battery (more on this down below) that Samsung is planning to ship on the Galaxy S23. In case you’re wondering about colors, multiple renders over the past few weeks have confirmed that the S23 and the S23 Plus will be available in four colors: Phantom Black, Cotton Flower (off-white), Misty Lilac, and Botanic Green.

Ahead of its official launch on February 1, popular leaker Evan Blass has showcased the official press renders of the whole Samsung Galaxy S23 series. In addition to the images of the smartphones, Blass has also shared some images of the first-party cases that will launch alongside the S23 series. While the design is similar to what the previously-leaked renders show, the images have confirmed the color variants of the Galaxy S23.

Display

Shifting our focus to the front, the Samsung Galaxy S23 is rumored to feature a flat 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED display. It will reportedly feature Full HD+ resolution (2,340 x 1,080), support up to 120Hz, and feature up to 1,300 nits of peak brightness. The specs of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus — in terms of the display — are also expected to remain the same as the S22 Plus, which means we’re getting a 6.6-inch Full HD+ display with up to 120Hz refresh rate.

According to the leaker Ice universe, the bezels of the Galaxy S23 will be slightly thicker compared to the Galaxy S22. While the reason behind this is unknown, it could be a move to increase the overall durability of the phone.

Moreover, RGcloudS, a Twitter leaker, has suggested that the whole Galaxy S23 series could be equipped with a new Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint reader. This under-display fingerprint sensor will be significantly larger than the current in-display fingerprint readers used by Samsung and will improve the overall experience.

Processor

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Key Visual-Red

Samsung is reportedly planning to launch the Samsung S23 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in all regions. This is a change from previous Samsung Galaxy S models, which were released with different processor variants in different regions. For example, the Samsung S22 was released with the Exynos processor in Europe, while it featured Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the US, South Korea, and India.

According to the latest information from 9to5Google, this processor will be called “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.” This custom variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will have a high clocked speed of 3.36GHz compared to the 3.2GHz on the regular chipset. The report also states that there will be ‘optimizations specific to Samsung phones,’ but it’s unclear as of this moment what that means.

Tipster Yogesh Brar reports that the Galaxy S23 will run on Android 13 out of the box. It will feature at least 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The Galaxy S23 Plus, unlike the base model, is expected to feature at least 256GB of onboard storage. Unfortunately, like the Galaxy S22, there will be no microSD card slot for storage expansion, per multiple reports.

In terms of connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to feature standard capabilities such as Wi-Fi 6, 5G, and Bluetooth 5.3. In addition to these features, the Galaxy S23 is rumored to feature support for Qualcomm Snapdragon Satellite, which will give this smartphone series iPhone 14-like capabilities of connecting to emergency services in areas with no cellular or Wi-Fi coverage.

Camera

According to leaks, the Galaxy S23 will feature the same camera hardware as previous models, including a 50MP main sensor, 12MP ultra-wide angle lens, 10MP telephoto lens, and 10MP front camera. However, even though the hardware may be unchanged, it is likely that there will be significant improvements in photo quality due to software optimizations and machine learning, as well as the potential for improved image processing thanks to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s new ISP.

Samsung, in its Galaxy S23 teaser videos, has stated that the upcoming smartphone series will feature various camera-related improvements. The video states that the upcoming device will offer “stunning night photos,” which aligns with recent claims from industry insider Ice Universe that the Galaxy S23 series will feature significant advancements in low-light photography.

Battery

S23 Plus Renders 4

Samsung Galaxy S22 was mainly criticized for its poor battery life. The company could be looking to correct its mistake with a slightly bigger 3,900 mAh cell on the Samsung Galaxy S23. While a bigger battery alone does not guarantee improved battery life, the combination of this larger cell with the efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor could mean that the Galaxy S23 will last longer than the Galaxy S22 on a single charge.

Coming to the charging speed, the Galaxy S23 will reportedly feature the same 25W fast charging as the Galaxy S22. Furthermore, we expect to see support for up to 15W wireless charging and support for 10W reverse wireless charging as well.

What Improvements Would We Like to See

Galaxy S22 Ultra in hand

  • Better Battery Life: One of the major cons of the Samsung Galaxy S22 was its bad battery life. The 3,700 mAh cell wasn’t just able to last a full day on a single charge, even with minimal usage. The Galaxy S23’s larger 3,900 mAh battery is a good start, but we would have loved to see an even bigger battery on the Galaxy S23. Maybe Samsung has a surprise in store for us, who knows?
  • Faster Charging: In the world of smartphones that are able to charge 120W and 150W, the Galaxy S23 will reportedly be limited to only 25W wired charging. We would love to see even faster charging on the Galaxy S23, which would allow users to quickly top up their battery when needed.
  • More Storage Options: Offering a range of storage options is always a good idea, as different users have different storage needs. Unfortunately, it appears that the Galaxy S23 will only be available in 128GB and 256GB variants, which may not suffice for many users, especially given the phone’s 8K video recording capabilities. As 8K video files can be quite large, having enough storage space is essential for capturing and storing high-quality footage.
  • Expandable Storage: In addition to offering more storage options, Samsung should also consider including a microSD card slot. This would allow users to easily add more storage to their device if needed without having to worry about running out of space.
