Samsung is expected to unveil its new Galaxy S23 at the Unpacked event scheduled for February 1st. Often, most of their secrets have already been revealed. This year again, the high-end offering from South Korea will be available on three devices: Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra.

The first two again have to share most of their technical sheet, while the Ultra version intends to solidify its place in the premium segment.

Wise change

This new range should offer no significant changes in dimensions and design. The Galaxy S23 will still opt for a 6.1-inch screen, while the Plus model will retain the 6.6-inch panel. Both will display a definition of 2340 x 1080 pixels.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will still be the most impressive with a 6.8-inch diagonal displayed in 3080 x 1440 pixels. The screen should also be very bright, as rumors suggest a peak of up to 2200 nits, thus surpassing the iPhone 14 Pro. It should also benefit from certain proprietary technologies such as LTPO 4.0 (1 Hz to 120 Hz) and compatibility with the S-Pen stylus, unveiled in 2022 on the S series (Galaxy S22 Ultra).

Images are shared on the site WinFuture show a very similar appearance. The main change will lie in the loss of photo islands to highlight each sensor individually.

Snapdragon for everyone?

Over the years, Samsung has offered two versions of its high-end smartphones. One is equipped with a Snapdragon chip manufactured by Qualcomm America and is aimed at the North American and Asian markets. The second incorporates an Exynos chip manufactured by Samsung’s semiconductor division and aimed at Europe. This version has often been criticized for failing to deliver similar performance and sometimes suffering from more limited battery life.

Aware of this discontent, Samsung has gradually removed the Exynos chip from certain models, but not from the latest Galaxy S22. This generation should mark a definite step to Qualcomm’s SoC. We imagine South Korea will opt for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the chipsets the top of the casting range, to animate its three new smartphones.

200 Mpx sensor in the pipe?

As we explained recently, the Galaxy S23 Ultra should have a 200 Mpx main sensor. It’s not expected to be the Isocell HP1 or Isocell HP3, which launched earlier this year. It will probably be equipped with the new Isocell HP2, a sensor that clearly uses engineering pixel binding, which makes it possible to combine multiple photosites (0.6 µm) for brighter shots. However, such a definition is not synonymous with a better picture, because it is mainly the work of the algorithms that makes the difference.

The Isocell HP1 is the world's first 200 megapixel sensor.

This 200 Mpx sensor will be accompanied by three others, including a 10 Mpx telephoto lens with x3 optical zoom, a 10 Mpx periscope sensor with x10 zoom, and a 12 Mpx ultra-wide angle.

The Galaxy S23 and S23+ should maintain the same configuration as in 2022. As such, we will find a triple camera module consisting of an ultra-wide-angle module (12 Mpx), a 50 Mpx main sensor and x3 optical zoom (10 Mpx sensor). ). Once again, the use of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 can make a difference (in photos and videos) with the previous generation.

The battery is more generous

Samsung also intends to increase the autonomy of the entire range. To do this, the manufacturer will decide to increase the battery capacity of each device. According to the website Galaxy ClubThe Galaxy S23 will be equipped with a 3900 mAh accumulator (as opposed to 3700 mAh for the S22), while the S23+ will opt for 4700 mAh (4500 mAh on the former).

The S23 Ultra will retain the massive 5000 mAh battery of its predecessor. The S22 will still support 25 W of charging power. Same observation for the other two, which will still settle for 45 W. A bit disappointing for a standard model that’s meant to be high-end.

The combination of this new accumulator, One UI 5 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 can indeed have a positive effect for daily consumption.

Prices are relatively stable

Based on RGcloudSsubmitted by TechRadar, the price list for the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra should be stable or slightly increased. So the Galaxy S23 with 128GB of storage can be priced at $799, and the 256GB version for $849. On the Galaxy S23 Plus side, consumers across the Atlantic should expect a price tag of $999 for the 128GB version and $1049 for 256GB of storage.

Finally, the starting price of the Galaxy S23 Ultra should be set at $1249 in the 256 GB version, $1349 with 512 GB and $1499 for the 1 TB version. As a reminder, the S22 Ultra retails from $1199 in 128GB. therefore head there, without blowing the bill.

Four colors should be available for each model: matte black, forest green, lilac and cotton white.

Just another two weeks of waiting to find out all three devices in detail, but new information will still leak by then.
