Samsung Galaxy S23 Release Date and Specifications

Samsung is scheduled to announce its newest line of Android phones, the Galaxy S23 in February 2023. Although there are still about 4 months to go before the launch of the Galaxy S23 series, leaked information about this new Samsung phone has been circulating.

There is some information that is already busy in cyberspace, including about color leaks, launch schedule, and specifications for the Galaxy S23.

The first leak came from the well-known leaker Ross Young, where he tweeted the color variant of the Galaxy S23 series later. He said the three Galaxy S23 series will be available in beige, black, green, and light pink colors. Samsung is also expected to reduce the color options offered to their customers, but it is possible that other variants will be released after launch. The most recent example is when Samsung released the Bora Purple color variant, after the Galaxy S22 officially launched a few months earlier.

Regarding specifications, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be a premium variant and carry a 6.8-inch QHD + AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. In terms of design, this Samsung cellphone will have a box shape like the Galaxy S22 and an S Pen slot is also available.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will have four cameras, where the main lens is 200MP, 12MP ultrawide, 10MP telephoto (3x optical zoom), and 10MP telephoto (10x optical zoom). Despite the improvement, Samsung has downgraded the 45W charging support on the Galaxy S22 Android phone to just 25W for the S23 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Specifications

Furthermore, the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus use screens measuring 6.6 inches and 6.1 inches, respectively. The screen has a 120Hz refresh rate, and Full HD + resolution. On the back, there are three camera lenses.

The main camera of this phone will probably have 50MP, 12MP ultrawide, and 10MP telephoto capabilities. Both phones will be equipped with a 12MP selfie camera.

According to reports, the Galaxy S23 Plus will be equipped with a 4700mAh battery. All three phones use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Reflecting on the events of previous years, it is very likely that the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra will be released in January or February 2023. This prediction is reinforced by Ross Young's statement. He confirmed, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will debut in late January or early February.

On the other hand, the Weibo account Ice Universe (@iceuniverse), where he shows a photo that is allegedly the case for the Samsung Galaxy S23. From the photo of the casing, Samsung's new cellphone is very consistent with the design leaks that have been circulating on the internet.

Citing Gizchina, Monday (3/10/2022), the Samsung Galaxy S23 has a body measuring 146.4 x 70.8 x 7.6 mm and has a separate camera configuration like the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Based on the current rendering of the Galaxy S23, the new Samsung phone will use a 6.1-inch display, and a hole in the screen.

In addition, this phone will be equipped with a selfie camera capable of 12MP. As a driving force, it embeds Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Recently, the Galaxy S23 (SM-S9110) and Galaxy S23 Plus (SM-S9160) have passed certification in China (China Compulsory Certification/3C) on September 25, 2022. From there, it is known that some of the features that will be on the Galaxy S23 series, one of which is the fast charging feature which is called disappointing.

For your information, the smartphone industry is currently focused on providing fast charging capabilities so that when users charge they don't have to wait long until the cellphone battery is fully charged. However, Samsung seems to still be presenting the same technology used in previous versions of the Galaxy. This is what is considered disappointing by some Android HP users.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Only Uses Snapdragon Chip?

It is known, Samsung is one of the companies that make their own chips. Even though their chips are installed in flagship phones, their performance is far from satisfactory compared to their competitors. One example is the performance of the Exynos 2200 which is considered unsatisfactory for many users, compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon answered one of the analysts' questions after the company's quarterly financial announcement. The CEO revealed that 75 percent of the Galaxy S22 units are already powered by the Snapdragon chipset and the percentage will increase next year.

“[We were] 75 percent using the Galaxy S22 before the agreement. You have to think we will do much better with the Galaxy S23 and beyond," said Amon.

Amon doesn't claim to be 100 percent using Snapdragon chips, but there's not much room between 75 and 100 percent where different models will double the effort to provide software support.
