As you know, Samsung’s next-gen flagship will be called the Galaxy S23. Prior to this, we’ve seen the renders of the Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra. Today, /leaks showed the spy photos of these three.
The photos reconfirm that Samsung is ditching the Galaxy S23 and S23+’s contour-cut design (where the rear camera housing is attached to the phone’s metal frame), making it more similar to the Galaxy S23 Ultra and many other Samsung phones. We mean Samsung has been using this approach even on lower-priced phones like the Galaxy A32, of which the camera lens protrudes separately on the back.
At the same time, the Galaxy S23 Ultra looks similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, the design of these models is a bit different from the leaked renders. For instance, they show that the SIM card slot is on the side instead of the bottom.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Plus, we know that the vanilla variant will come with a 3900mAh battery, while the S23+ will have a 4700mAh battery. Both will support 25W fast charging.
As for the screen and the camera hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S23 will feature a 6.1-inch display with a 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate support; the Galaxy S23+ will feature a 6.6-inch display supporting a 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Both phones will sport a 32MP front-facing camera, while the rear camera will include a 50MP primary lens, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 10MP telephoto lens (supporting 3x optical zoom).
Other reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S23 could cost more than its predecessor due to inflationary pressures. But there is still no certainty because we have heard similar rumors about the Mi 13. But the series didn’t get a significant price increase in the end.
