price, release date, spec sheet, everything about the new Samsung

A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, a 200-megapixel sensor, satellite communications, a bigger battery… Samsung’s Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra are getting more technical details as we get closer to their launch next February.

As every year, speculation The next high-end smartphones from Samsung the next one in less than two months because it’s going well Galaxy S23The successor to the currently available Galaxy S22 is about to hit stores.

Still, the manufacturer should offer three new models:

  • Galaxy S23 : entry-level model.
  • Galaxy S23+ : slightly more advanced version, especially the bigger screen.
  • Galaxy S23 Ultra : equipped with the highest level of equipment (screen, photo sensors, battery, etc.).

? What is the release date for the Galaxy S23?

The Galaxy S23 is expected to be announced during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event, which is expected to take place on February 1, 2023.

? How much will the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra cost?

Nothing has been leaked yet regarding the pricing of the three models in different configurations (memory and storage capacity). For now, we can recall the launch prices of the Galaxy S22.

  • Q22 With 8 GB of memory and 128 or 256 GB of storage space, it costs 859 and 909 Euros, respectively.
  • S22+ It costs €1,059 and €1,109 with 8GB of storage and 128 or 256GB of storage, respectively.
  • S22 Ultra It is available from 1259 € (8 GB memory and 256 GB storage space). Models with 12 GB storage: €1359 (256 GB storage), €1459 (512 GB storage) and €1659 (1 TB storage).

Will the manufacturer remain on such bases, or will the prices rise a little? Answers in less than two months.

? What design will the Galaxy S23 have?

Apriori, there should be no big changes on the front of the three smartphones. The small bump where the front photosensor is located will always be in the center of the screen. Their signature colors should be pink, green and gold.

On the other hand, it looks like we already know the dimensions of the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Indeed, the latter should measure 16.4 x 7.81 x 0.89 cm for a weight of 233 grams. Within a millimeter or two, its format will not change compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra (16.3 x 7.79 x 0.89 cm).

The Galaxy S23 Ultra should still come with a stylus that can be stored in the slot next to the USB C port.

In terms of design, the main change should be attributed to the Galaxy S23 and S23+ models. The two new smartphones have to abandon the traditional optical unit that includes all the rear photo sensors. Indeed, the latter should disappear so that the two smartphones adopt the flip-out design of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, with the sensors integrated directly into the back shell.

On the other hand, as shown in a leaked photo that reveals the protective covers that should protect the three models, we see that the Galaxy S23 and S23+ have more rounded edges compared to the more squared Galaxy S23 Ultra. . The S23 prototypes revealed in mid-December will show that.

Of course, full sealing against water and dust will always be on the program, with IP68 certification like last year’s three models.

? Which screen for Galaxy S23?

All leaks so far point to OLED screens Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra It should have the same specifications as the S22 generation.

So the Galaxy S23 and S23+ should still be 6.1-inch and 6.6-inch diagonal, while the top model S23 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch screen.

The screen definition for the latter will always be 3088 x 1440 pixels (so like the S22 Ultra). It shouldn’t improve on the S23 and S23+ either, with a 2340 x 1080 pixel display mode.

As for the display frequency, the three Galaxy S23 should support 120 Hz mode.

? Which photo sensors for Galaxy S23?

The main big expected innovation is related to the main sensor of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which will be able to take snapshots. 200 megapixels. It will be a Samsung Isocell HP2 model, so it will replace the 108-megapixel sensor used since the S20 Ultra.

Therefore, if the two images published by a recent leaker are to be believed, the 200-megapixel sensor can produce significantly more accurate images than the Galaxy S22 ultra’s 108-megapixel sensor. Another shot compares the performance of the 200-megapixel sensor with the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 108-megapixel sensor and the Pixel 7 Pro (50-megapixel).

On the other hand, the other three sensors of the S23 Ultra should be kept:

  • 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor.
  • 10-megapixel telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom.
  • 10-megapixel periscopic telephoto sensor with 10x optical zoom.

And the Galaxy S23 and S23+ can retain the sensors of the Galaxy S22 and S22+. Know: 50-megapixel main sensor, 12-megapixel wide-angle and 3x optical zoom telephoto lens.

It is possible that the Galaxy S23 will also perform Slightly smoother 8K video recordings Unlike the S22 generation, thanks to which the number of frames per second will increase from 24 to 30.

? What technical report and performance for Galaxy S23?

Things are done a priori. The Samsung Exynos processor designed for the Galaxy S smartphones sold in Europe until now is no longer on the agenda. And that’s a good thing, because the various versions of Samsung’s chip have always been less efficient than Qualcomm’s equivalent chips.

For the Galaxy S23, it will be because of this Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For everyone! Remember that this model has 8 cores:

  • 1 core at 3.2 GHz
  • 4 cores running at 2.8 GHz
  • 3 cores running at 2.0 GHz.

It is even possible that the Qualcomm chip integrated in the Galaxy S23 has been overclocked and the frequency of its fastest core has increased to 3.36 GHz.

On the other hand, like the iPhone 14, Samsung could also equip the Galaxy S23 with satellite communication functionality to solve the problems of white areas where there are no 4G or 5G networks.

? What autonomy is there for the Galaxy S23?

While the Galaxy S23 Ultra battery retains the same capacity as its predecessor, 5,000 mAh (actually 4,855 mAh), the Galaxy S23 and S23+ batteries should increase their capacity by 200 mAh to reach 3,900 mAh and 4,500 mAh, respectively. which is always better to take…
