The flagship Android smartphone launch season begins with one day left in January. Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1 will again live-stream the Galaxy S23 series.
In the next flagship series, there will be three phones: the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S23 Plus, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Following several internet leaks and rumors, we know five things about the Galaxy S23 series of smartphones.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be found in the Galaxy S23 series.
Every Samsung Galaxy S23 phone would be powered by a customized version of Qualcomm’s most recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU, which came out in November 2022. To quickly review, the processor is made by TSMC and is based on the ARMv9 architecture.
Qualcomm’s next chip boasts 40% less electricity, 25% faster GPU, and hardware ray tracing. The latest chipset contains an AI processing unit, Bluetooth 5.3, and real-time head tracking.
New cameras and improved low-light photography
Both the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23 Plus have the same camera sensor. Both phones will have a 50MP main camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture and 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP ultrawide lens with a 120° field of view and an f/2.2 aperture.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra will contain a 12MP ultrawide lens, two 10MP telephoto cameras, and the announced 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor. The new sensor improves low-light photography, records 8K video at 30 frames per second, and uses Tetra Pixel, a superior pixel arrangement.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s upgraded ISOCELL HP2 sensor can improve color reproduction and solve the issue of photographs becoming washed out in strongly illuminated areas. Additionally, a better front camera is anticipated for every phone in the Series.
Higher battery capacity
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is likely to get a small boost in terms of how long the battery lasts. The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus may have 3,900mAh and 4,700mAh batteries, respectively. Both phones are supposed to allow cable charging up to 25W.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra, the most expensive model, may contain a 5,000mAh battery and 45W wired charging. Smartphones should enable reverse and Qi wireless charging. Since the CPU uses less power and the batteries are slightly bigger, the Galaxy S23 phones may last longer.
The Galaxy S22 may cost less than the Galaxy S23 series.
Multiple sources say that it looks like Samsung is going to raise the price of the Galaxy S23 series. The S23 Series could experience a price increase of up to 100 Euros in some European nations. The Galaxy S23 could see a price hike of Rs 7,000 from Samsung in India. At the same time, the Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra are expected to be Rs 5,000 more expensive than their 2022 counterparts.

As a result, the entry-level model of the Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to cost Rs 79,999. In contrast, the Galaxy S23 Plus and the Galaxy S23 Ultra are expected to start at Rs 89,999 and Rs 1,14,999, respectively.
If this is true, it would be the biggest increase in price for the Series in the last three years. Even though the corporation has been gradually raising the price, the increase was just about Rs 3,000 yearly.
Galaxy S23 Ultra’s new color options
In addition to the usual botanic green, cotton flower, mystic lilac, and phantom black colors for the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung may offer a few new colors for the next Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus might also get additional color options.
The S23 Series has some new colors, albeit in considerably smaller quantities than the core four. Gray, Light Blue, Light Green, and Red join Beige, Black, Green, and Light Pink in the S23 Ultra.
According to the latest leak from reliable tipper Ross Young, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will come in blue, light green, and red. Samsung’s website states that these new hues are exclusively available online.
quicker storage and more RAM
Samsung may also boost the RAM on the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s base model. The base Galaxy S23 Ultra model had 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage last year. However, the company is increasing the storage and RAM on the least expensive Galaxy S23 Ultra to 256 GB and 12 GB, respectively.
UFS 4.0 storage will be available in future phones. According to Ice Universe, only the Galaxy S23 with 128GB of storage will have UFS 4.0. Samsung did this because Kioxia is the sole Japanese manufacturer of 128GB UFS 4.0 storage modules. The South Korean company that makes phones decided not to put the newest features in the base model.
In India, pre-orders for the Galaxy S23 series are presently being accepted. At the official Samsung website, Samsung Exclusive Stores, Amazon, and other top retailers, you can reserve one of the upcoming smartphones for just Rs 1,999.
