Galaxy S23: Everything we know about Samsung’s 2023 flagship lineup

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series wowed us with its minimal yet sleek designs and super compelling specs. Looking at them, it becomes clear that the Galaxy S23 series has plenty of shoes to fill. While there were rumors circulating online of a much faster release, a new report puts them to rest, revealing that the upcoming flagships could pretty much stick to their usual release cycle.

Galaxy S23 Series: Release Date

A recent report suggests that the Galaxy S23 will be released earlier than usual. The launch will be held through an Unpacked event in San Francisco. Historically, the company has released its flagship series of phones a few weeks after the launch, and if anything like that happens, then the Galaxy S23 series could go on sale on February 17.

The report goes on to say that Samsung usually releases the Galaxy S series in March, but intense market competition is forcing Samsung to push the release window forward to February. This will help the company reflect the sales of flagship phones in the first quarterly report itself.

Galaxy S23 series processor and camera

Additionally, the report says that while the Galaxy S23 series is likely to rely mostly on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for its processing needs, some models may also ship with the Exynos 2300. Meanwhile, the flagship model – the Galaxy S23 Ultra – could sport a 200MP sensor developed by Samsung, which is nearly double the pixels compared to its predecessor’s 108MP unit.

There were rumors that the 200MP unit in question could be the ISOCELL HP3 sensor, but reliable tipster Ice Universe suggested otherwise. So if the Ultra will still have 200MP, but won’t use the next-gen HP3 sensor, then the next contender is the ISOCELL HP2. This, according to the same advisor, should bring significant improvements to nighttime photography.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus could have 12MP front-facing selfie units, according to GalaxyClub. This should result in a marked improvement over the 10MP unit from last year’s models. The rest of the cameras are likely to have the same resolution, though there may be improvements in other departments.

Galaxy S23 Plus and Ultra battery capacity

Meanwhile, Galaxy Club has managed to get its hands on some battery model numbers along with their estimated capacities. According to the Dutch publication, the EB-BS916ABY of the Galaxy S23 Plus has an estimated capacity of 4,565 mAh, which Samsung may market as 4,700 mAh. That’s slightly larger than the Galaxy S22 Plus, but smaller than the Galaxy S21 Plus. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s EB-BS918ABY has a rated capacity of 4,855 mAh and a typical capacity of 5,000 mAh. Again, this information has yet to be confirmed, so it’s best to take it with a grain of salt.

Galaxy S23 series design

Samsung, like Apple, is following a 3-year design refresh cycle. The same is expected to be true of the Galaxy S23 series, with the flagship phones more or less recycling the S22 models. However, Ice Universe says that the Galaxy S23 could have thicker bezels.

It’s not clear why Samsung would take a step back in terms of design like this, but hopefully it has something to do with improved durability.
