If you’ve been following the leaks, you’ll know that the Samsung Galaxy S23 is the successor to the S22 — which basically means it follows the same unique recipe for certain component upgrades.
Yesterday we got a first look at Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 performance, which showed promising Geekbench scores. However, it also revealed that the 2023 model will come with 8GB of RAM, just like the 2022, 2021 and 2020 phones. Is a bloat of 12 GB long overdue? Samsung doesn’t see it that way (the S20 had a 12GB option, Samsung knows how much it will sell for).
Leakster Yogesh Brar has shared a summary of the Galaxy S23 specification and those tell the same story – 8GB RAM, 128/256GB storage. The new model will have a bigger 3,900mAh battery, well, bigger than the S22 but not the S21 or S20 (both at 4,000mAh). And it supports the same old 25W wired and 15W wireless charging. Both Samsung and Apple have been conservative with the charging speed of their smartphones, especially the smaller models.
On the front, the new phone will have a 50MP main camera (with OIS), 12MP ultra wide and 10MP telephoto, plus a 10MP selfie camera. That reads the same as the S22’s cameras, though it may include new sensors and optics. It includes a new processor thanks to a more powerful chipset.
Finally, the phone will have a 6.1-inch flexible AMOLED 2X display, still with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340px, still not LTPO. That’s what the rumors say anyway. Ice universe He says the bezels will be fractions of a millimeter thicker, but that’s not the whole story.
We’ve seen from systems that the design will be reworked to be more in line with the S22 Ultra (the S23 Ultra looks basically the same). We’ve also seen it in the case designs – the camera island is gone, the single lens pops up at the back.
Looking back, the Galaxy S21 used the S20’s cameras but housed them in a redesigned body. The S22 reused the design but upgraded the cameras. Now we are in for a new design and similar cameras. This seems to be Samsung’s update for the Galaxy S series, at least for the vanilla and Plus models (the Ultras see big changes year-to-year).
One big question that remains at this point is whether the S23 series will use only Snapdragon chipsets or whether the Exynos team will convince their colleagues.
