South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, will release its next-generation flagship series early next year. On February 9 this year, Samsung released three flagship mobile phones including the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra. Yesterday, a tech blogger, @iceuniverse exposed the configuration information of Samsung’s next flagship phone, Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+. According to the information, the Samsung Galaxy S23/S23+ has the same design as the Galaxy S22/S22+. There is almost no change in the design and as far as the middle frame remains the same.
In terms of configuration, the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ will use the same screen. Furthermore, these smartphones also come with the same camera as the previous generation. Under the hood, reports so far claim that the battery will be the same as the previous generation. This means that the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ almost have no change, the only upgrade is probably the processor. This flagship series will come with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Galaxy S23 series uses the same telephoto camera
According to GalaxyClub’s report on June 28, the Samsung Galaxy S23/S23+ will use the same telephoto camera as the Galaxy S22/S22+. This is consistent with the latest revelation regarding this series. The Galaxy S22 / S22+ Chinese versions were released on February 22 this year, starting at 4,999 yuan. Both models are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and use ultrasonic fingerprint recognition. In the camera department, these smartphones come with a front-facing 10-megapixel selfie camera. Furthermore, these devices come with a triple rear camera setup including a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera.
In addition, according to the blogger’s revelation, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will use the yet-to-be-released 200-megapixel sensor ISOCELL HP2. This sensor has a better overall performance than the two 200-megapixel sensors HP1 and HP3. However, the two sensors, HP1 and HP3, have not yet been released in real smartphones. The first 200-megapixel flagship Motorola X30 Pro equipped with HP1 will be released in the near future. Nevertheless, the biggest change in the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in terms of design is the middle frame. This new flagship comes with a wider middle frame and this reduces the curve on the screen, closer to the micro-curved screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 standard version uses a 6.1-inch screen, a built-in 3700 mAh battery, and weighs 167 grams. The Galaxy S22+ features a 6.6-inch screen, a built-in 4500 mAh battery, and weighs 195 grams.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will still use a 5000 mAh battery
Samsung’s next-generation flagship, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has been attracting a lot of attention. According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will still use a 5000 mAh battery. However, just like the rest of the series, this flagship model also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will not be thinner and lighter.
Gizchina News of the week
Well-known analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo said on July 9 that the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will only be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors. Qualcomm previously said that the 2022 Snapdragon Summit will be held from November 15th to 17th this year. Qualcomm is expected to announce the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip at the summit, so the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will come after that. There is no more information on the configuration and price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to use the new 200MP camera
Earlier this month, Samsung said that it has no plans to re-launch the Galaxy Note series. However, the company will not abandon the spirit of the Note series. Samsung now incorporates the spirit of the Galaxy Note series into the Galaxy S Ultra models every year. According to speculations regarding the Galaxy S23 Ultra, this device will come with a new camera sensor. Samsung released the world’s first 200-megapixel mobile image sensor ISOCELL HP1 in 2021. An image sensor is a semiconductor chip that converts the light signal entering the camera lens into a digital signal. At present, Samsung has two 200-megapixel sensors, the Samsung HP1 and HP3. Popular tech blogger @iceuniverse previously reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will not use the Samsung HP3 sensor.
Samsung’s internal 200MP sensor
Thus, all we know for now is that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will use a 200-megapixel main camera. However, the exact sensor that it will use will most likely be the Samsung HP1 sensor. Recall that Motorola’s upcoming flagship smartphone will also use the 200-megapixel Samsung HP1 sensor. This will be the first time that the Samsung Galaxy S Ultra series uses a 200-megapixel main camera. At the same time, this means that the image strength of the Galaxy S23 Ultra will significantly improve.
Back in May, Businesskorea revealed that Samsung Electronics is developing a 200-megapixel mobile phone camera. According to the report, this series will be first installed on the next-generation Samsung Galaxy S23 series mobile phones. Experts predict that Samsung’s competition with Apple over smartphone cameras will heat up. In the second half of 2022, Apple will officially release the iPhone 14 series. For the first time, an iPhone will come with a 48MP camera. This will be the first time that Apple is increasing its smartphone camera pixel in seven years. In addition, Ming-Chi Kuo said on July 9 that the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will only be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. This means that we will not have an Exynos version of the Galaxy S23 series.
