Samsung is expected to launch the Samsung Galaxy S23 series only in Q1 2023. That can happen in January or February next year, so we’re still plenty of months away from the release. However, the leaks are already appearing in full force. The past few weeks have been filled with multiple Samsung Galaxy S23 series-related leaks. There have been rumors suggesting minor changes, and not so many hardware differences. However, a set of renders have appeared today, showing the Galaxy S23 and S23+ design. Apparently, Samsung is finally taking a major departure from the Galaxy S21 design.
The new renders come from OnLeaks in partnership with Smartprix. They show the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23+. The design is new for the vanilla and Plus models, however, it’s not actually new. Samsung is ditching the rectangular camera island, to adopt the “raindrop design”. The same design is already present in the Ultra series with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. We expect the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to stick with this very same design. In the next year, all three devices will be easily recognizable as Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones.
Gizchina News of the week
Each camera will have its own round protruding. The Galaxy S23 and S23+ will pack a triple-camera setup. According to leaks, the two models will not bring advanced changes in the camera department. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, on the other hand, will pack a 200 MP camera.
Galaxy S23 and S23+ specs and features
Moving to the front, we have the same usual design. Slim bezels with a tiny punch-hole for the selfie camera. Thankfully, Samsung is not moving backward to adopt some sort of pill-shaped notch and mimic Apple’s iPhone 14, Pro Max. However, those waiting for an under-screen smartphone in the Galaxy S series, will be disappointed.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 will pack a 6.1-inch panel keeping the dimensions of its predecessor. Its dimensions are 146.3 x 70.8 x 7.5 mm. The Samsung Galaxy S23+ is bigger than its predecessor at a 157.7 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm in size. However, it will keep the very same 6.6-inch screen as its predecessor.
According to recent leaks, the devices will have disappointing 25W charging. The Exynos variants are still coming with the Exynos 2300 for the 2023’s family. We can also expect Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 variants. The phones will get a 5% increase in battery capacity. So theoretically, the Galaxy S22 will have a 3,900 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be for another year in a row, the true flagship of the family. However, we may not see many changes apart from the camera and processor.
