According to recent reports from Android Authority, Ars Technica, Wccftech, and other tech reports, the Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra’s system space can take up to 60GB. However, there is a data mistake in this news. The Galaxy S23’s 128GB model occupies 18GB. Second, there will be a 7% “loss” in storage due to the conversion from 1000 to 1024.
Samsung’s OneUI 5.1 operating system does not require 60GB of storage, as noted by Notebookcheck. This is primarily due to Samsung’s usage of 1000/1024 base conversion in system storage. This helps to clarify for users why the 512GB model actually only has 472GB, indicating a 7% “loss” in storage.
The image below reveals the space that the storage display in the Galaxy S23 takes. The OneUI 5.1 system takes up roughly 18GB of space on the 128GB model, 32GB of space on the 256GB model, and 58GB of space on the 512GB device. There could be a variance of several GBs depending on the region, the type of mobile phone, and the OS version.

The Dutch version of the 512GB model has a “loss” of about 35.84GB, and the actual space taken is about 22.2 GB. The actual space taken between the two systems is roughly the same, so this should be reasonable. There is a 7% “loss” which is roughly 17.92GB, and the actual system occupies roughly 20.47GB under this assumption. Such a system naturally consumes a lot of space.
Samsung Galaxy S23 specs
All of the devices in the Galaxy S23 series employ the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. This chip has been improved by Samsung to operate better than the regular version. Comparing the Ultra variant to the Galaxy S23 and S23+, the Ultra model offers up to 12GB of RAM while the other models support up to 8GB of RAM. Each model offers a storage option with capacities ranging from 128GB to 1TB. The Galaxy S23 and S23+ include three cameras: a 12MP ultra-wide angle, a 50MP wide-angle, and a 10MP telephoto zoom with 3x optical zoom.
In the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, a sizable 200MP wide-angle sensor is present. Additionally, you may locate the various small-model cameras here. A secondary 10x telephoto zoom sensor does exist, though. The Plus and Standard models are very different from the Ultra model.
