The New Galaxy S23 and S23+: What to Expect
We can expect the new Galaxy S23 on February 1, 2023. Samsung has released enough information about the product now that we can get a good picture of what the device will be like. The one thing we don’t know yet is the exact price of the lineup. We’ve seen a lot of fluctuation in Galaxy prices across the years, but there have been reports stating that Samsung expects to raise the prices of the new Galaxy S23 lineup. Last year’s lineup (the S22) started at $999 and increased with the higher-end models. Therefore, we can predict a price increase of around $100 for the S23.
There aren’t many changes to the S23 compared to the S22, which is quite similar to the iPhone 14 and 13. This may come as a disappointment to many who were expecting significant changes. The cameras on the base model include a 50MP primary lens, 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 10MP telephoto camera with a 3x zoom. As for the selfie camera, you get a 12MP sensor in the middle of the front of your phone. The cameras are the same across the S23 and the S23+.
The S23 has a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080, with an edge-to-edge screen. Those who like bigger screens and impressive displays will appreciate the upgrade compared to other smartphones like the iPhone. The base model can adjust the refresh rate between 48Hz and 120Hz and uses the Gorilla Glass Victus 2, a sturdy material that reduces your phone’s chance of breaking. As for the S23+, you get a 6.6-inch display (which is a pretty giant leap) with the same specs and resolution.
The battery hasn’t changed much since the S22. You get a slight upgrade at 3,900 mAh, while the S23+’s battery remains unchanged at 4,700 mAh. The Galaxy S22+ had a battery life of around 15 hours on a full charge so we can expect a similar time for the S23+. As for the S23, expect a slightly longer battery life than in previous years. Nothing too impressive.
If you’re interested in the S23 base model, you get the 128GB and 256GB storage options. If you need more than that, you’ll need to order the S23+. The S23+ comes with 256GB and 512GB options. All devices have 8GB, regardless of how much storage room they provide. Both phones run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which is pretty good for a mobile phone. You’ll be able to enjoy high-graphic games and watch ultra-HD movies comfortably. All-in-all, that’s a decent amount of storage and processing power.
Galaxy S23 Ultra Specs
The new Galaxy S23 Ultra is a more expensive and powerful option. Here’s what you can expect from the device.
The selection of cameras on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is different from the base model S23 and the S23+. The primary camera is the 200MP Samsung ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor, which looks pretty great. It’s a new technology developed by Samsung, and the S23 Ultra will be the first time we see it. You can capture 8K video with it at 30 FPS, and it stabilizes all motion using Super QPD. The secondary camera is the 12MP ultrawide camera, and it has two telephoto lenses that zoom at 3x and 10x. The selfie camera on the S23 Ultra is the same as on the two lower-priced models and is 12MP, down from the S22’s 40MP camera.
The display for the S23 Ultra is impressive. It’s 6.8 inches, has a 3080 x 1440 resolution, and adjusts between 1Hz and 120Hz. A screen that big at that resolution means you can support some beautiful imagery on your phone. It also comes with the Gorilla Glass Victus 2 to help protect your device from cracking.
The S23 Ultra is a powerful phone, and a powerful phone requires a large and reliable battery. Unfortunately, this model has a 5000 mAh battery, the same as the S22 Ultra. This may mean that there aren’t many significant improvements to processing power and the phone’s capabilities compared to last year. It has 45W fast charging, so you can expect to charge your phone quickly when needed. You can expect a similar battery life to the S22 Ultra, around 13 hours. This is still worse than the S21 Ultra, which is very disappointing.
The S23 Ultra has three storage options: 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. Depending on which storage option you choose, you can get 8GB or 12GB of RAM, as a phone with more storage will need more space to store and process data. This phone also uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor so you can expect similar graphics on a bigger and more impressive display.
If you look at it in a vacuum, the new Galaxy S23 has some impressive specs, but when you compare it to previous iterations, it’s a bit disappointing. When you consider that Samsung is planning to raise the prices of the model, there might be a reason to skip this year’s release. There’s still a little time left until the release, so maybe there’ll be a few changes.
