Just before Christmas, we heard signature color information for each of Samsung’s three upcoming Galaxy S23 models: green for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, pink for the Galaxy S23+, and gold/pink for the Galaxy S23. Today 91mobiles showed off some promotional images for the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S23+.
Last month, concepts were released by the YouTube channel 4RMD, but the promotional images that 91mobiles was able to obtain exclusively should show us the real chosen one. And in case you’re wondering, the images were provided by an “industry source”.
If Twitter informant Ice Universe has a reason, ask us to see the Galaxy S23 line presented on February 1 at the next Samsung Unpacked event. Based on Samsung’s past performance, this indicated a February 10 or February 17 release date for smartphones. Remember that Samsung has yet to officially announce the date for its first Unpacked event of 2023.
2023 should be a special year for the range. Instead of equipping the Galaxy S line with different chipsets depending on the region (typically the US, Canada and China would get their Galaxy S equipped with a Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm while the rest of the world would get smartphones equipped with Samsung’s Exynos SoC), all Galaxy S23 models would be equipped with the high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
However, this is not everyone’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The version of this chip produced by the founder TSMC will have a high-performance X-3 core clocked at 3.2 GHz. The variant for the Galaxy S23 models is said to be made by Samsung’s own foundry with an overclocked X-3 core running at a clock speed of 3.32 GHz.
We can also see Samsung equipping the Galaxy S23 Ultra with a 200-megapixel camera sensor which is said to be different from the HP1 sensor that Samsung sold to Motorola for the Edge 30 Ultra and Xiaomi 12T. One of the improvements will be the smartphone’s ability to record 8K video at 30 frames per second (fps) compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 24 fps. Therefore, you might see smoother videos recorded by the Galaxy S23 Ultra in 8K.
Once again, the top Ultra model shares a design with the late Galaxy Note series. Note the parts and, of course, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with the S Pen and the slot to house it.
