Galaxy S23: We know when Samsung will launch its new high-end smartphones

Samsung is expected to stick to its usual routine and launch its Galaxy S23s in early 2023. After several rumors, it is now known that the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra could be launched at the very beginning of February during a Galaxy Unpacked in the United States.

We already knew almost everything about the Galaxy S23, except the price and the launch date. But that was before the famous leaker ice universe announces that Samsung’s new flagships will be launched on February 1, 2023 during a dedicated Galaxy Unpacked.

This date coincides with the first rumored launch in early February, based on South Korean media. The leaker also confirmed that the event will be held in person in San Francisco, California, although Samsung has yet to send out its invites.

Galaxy S23 (Ultra): Specs and price

In addition to the release date, the Galaxy S23 specs have been revealed recently. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED display, improved 8K video recording, and a new 200MP primary lens.

At the same time, the three Galaxy 23s differ from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC which should offer much better performance than last year. The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus would benefit from larger batteries as well as a unified but minimalist design. Samsung could also equip the Galaxy S23 with a more resistant Gorilla Glass Victus 2 glass.

No pricing details are mentioned. But multiple sources suggest prices will remain restrained due to uncertain circumstances in the global economy next year. It would also make sense for Samsung to maintain attractive prices given the fierce competition from Apple’s iPhone 14 (Pro) in particular.

As a reminder, the Galaxy S22 was launched at 859 euros against 1259 euros for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Both models have obviously come down in price since then.

In your opinion, will Samsung really keep the same prices for its Galaxy S23? Are you impatiently awaiting their launch?
