Samsung Galaxy S23: Release date, price and features

860 unlocks

Samsung is about halfway through the Galaxy S22 product cycle, and now details about next year’s Galaxy S23 are starting to emerge. Smartprix and Onleaks have released allegedly leaked 3d renders of the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra.

According to these sources, the design of the S23 and S23 Plus will change more than the Ultra model, with the cameras in separate elevations instead of a “camera housing” just like today’s S22 Ultra already has.

According to GSM Arena, the Galaxy S23 Plus will be slightly larger than its predecessor, despite an equally large screen. But we are talking 0.3 millimeters in width and length with maintained thickness, so it will hardly be noticeable other than with some tight-fitting shells.

The other information the site has about the phones is that they are expected to be equipped with either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or Samsung’s own Exynos 2300, and should receive support for 25-watt charging.

Big chip change expected in Galaxy S23

Information in Qualcomm’s latest quarterly meeting with shareholders indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S23 will only use Snapdragon chipsets, GSM Arena reports.

During the meeting, Qualcomm’s CEO, Cristiano Amon, confirmed that a multi-year agreement with Samsung will bring Snapdragon to all Samsung Galaxy mobiles in the premium segment globally.

In that case, this would be the first time ever that all models are launched with the same chipsets worldwide.

The expectation is that the Samsung Galaxy S23 will be launched in the first week of February 2023.

Galaxy S23 With a Bigger battery

Samsung will use a slightly larger battery in the Galaxy S23 than in the S22, reports XDA Developers. The information comes from Digital Chat Station, which has repeatedly leaked accurate information about upcoming Android phones.

The battery in the S22 is 3,700 mAh while the S23 is said to get one with 3,785 with an average actual maximum capacity from the factory around 3,900.

Around five percent higher battery capacity may not seem like much, but if the rumors are true and the screen is as large and bright as today, it is possible that the battery, together with a slightly more efficient processor, will still provide noticeably longer battery life.
