With February almost here, it’s time to turn our attention to what’s next for samsung. The technology company prepares for its next event unboxed on February 1, and the Galaxy S23 line is expected to be the star of the show.

He samsung galaxy s22 The range includes some of our best phones of 2022. The base S22 impressed as a more affordable option, the S22 more is a magnificent all-rounder, while the almighty S22 Ultra he blew us away with his stellar camera skills. We even hand out the Plus and Ultra CNET Editors’ Choice Awards.

If Samsung continues the pattern it has followed for the past three generations, we can expect to see a Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra. We’ll likely know more on February 1, but here’s what to expect based on rumors, leaks, and past Samsung product launches. As for what we I want to see from the Galaxy S23 Lineup, longer battery life, and smarter camera features are at the top of my list.

Galaxy S23 release date

Samsung is likely to announce the Galaxy S23 series during its next Unpacked event on February 1, which will take place in San Francisco. The event announcement follows previous leaks, including this report from Korean newspaper JoongAng Daily suggesting an early February launch for the Galaxy S23. a january 6 cheep by prominent leaker Ice Universe also claimed to show a teaser image of Galaxy Unpacked dated February 1.

Whether the phones are available in stores to buy that month is another matter, as global supply chains are still struggling and there may be a longer than usual delay. But Samsung is already offering promotions for customers in the US who want to reserve a phone in advance. You’ll get $50 in Samsung credit if you sign up to reserve one device or $100 if you request to reserve two.


The S22 Ultra has had some fierce competition this year, including from Google’s Pixel 7 Pro.

Models and sizes of the Galaxy S23

We strongly hope that Samsung will continue its strategy of releasing multiple phone models, each with different specifications and prices to appeal to a wide variety of people. Based on Samsung’s story, we’re sure to see an entry-level Galaxy S23 model, an upgraded S23 Plus with a larger screen, and the higher-end S23 Ultra. It’s the Ultra that will pack the best tech, including extra cameras, the biggest screen, and almost certainly the S Pen stylus.

Samsung’s Unpacked event invite also includes what appear to be three spotlights, which may be a subtle nod to the three new incoming Galaxy models.

Samsung's invitation to Unpacked

Samsung’s next Unpacked event will take place on February 1. We look forward to learning about the Galaxy S23 line.


Renowned leaker Ice Universe posted a detailed rundown of the sizes of the three upcoming phones (via GSM Arena), which puts them almost exactly in line with the current sizes of the S22 lineup. As such, we don’t expect noticeable differences in the screen sizes of either range from the predecessors.

They were 6.1 inches for the Galaxy S22, 6.6 inches for the S22 Plus, and 6.8 inches for the S22 Ultra.

Galaxy S23 price

Assuming Samsung launches several models, the S23 range will have three main prices. We don’t expect Samsung to deviate from last year’s prices. For reference, the base S22 launched with a price tag of $800, while the Plus model started at $1,000, and the high-performance S22 Ultra debuted at $1,200 in the US last February.

Galaxy S23 cameras

It looks like the cameras could be one of the key areas of focus for the new series. That’s likely to be especially true for the Ultra model, which is usually where Samsung’s biggest camera innovations can be found.

We expected the S22 Ultra to pack a whopping 200-megapixel image sensor, considering Samsung released two of these image sensors and they can be found on other phones. We didn’t see it on the S22 Ultra, but it seems likely that a 200-megapixel sensor is one of the S23 Ultra’s main bragging rights. ice universe it also predicts that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a 200-megapixel sensor. Whether it’s the HP1 or HP3 sensor that the company already produces or a new variant built specifically for the phone remains to be seen.

In our tests, the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera performed very well against the Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro.

Samsung’s product pages for these sensors boast improved resolution (obviously), but they’ve also improved low-light photography by combining smaller pixel arrays into larger individual pixels that can capture more light. The S22 Ultra is already one of the best night camera phonesbeating the Pixel 7 Pro in our recent tests, so it’s exciting to hear a new burst of its low-light prowess.

That massive resolution will also help the phone’s zooming abilities, which are already impressive thanks to its 10x optical zoom lens. recent rumors from Ice Universe suggests that the lens lineup will remain the same across all phones, but that extra resolution should help make zoomed shots even sharper.

There’s a chance we’ll see a slight change to the camera design as well, at least on the Galaxy S23 Plus and potentially the Galaxy S23. Big-name leaker rumors ice universe Y steve hemmerstoffer suggest that newer devices might have circular cutouts for the camera lenses that sit directly on the back of the device rather than in a camera module. The Galaxy S22 Ultra already has a camera like this, but the Hemmerstoffer leak suggests this style could also make its way to the Plus model.

Take a look at the photos of the Galaxy S22 Ultra alongside the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 below to see what I mean.

Battery, processor and other specifications of the Galaxy S23

The Galaxy S23 range will almost certainly use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. In previous years, Samsung used its own Exynos chips for its European models. But a recent Qualcomm earnings call suggested that Samsung will, in fact, use Qualcomm’s silicon for every phone in the range.

As for other specs, we expect a minimum of 8GB of RAM on base models, with 12GB available on the S23 Ultra. Storage is likely to continue starting at 128GB, with higher capacity options available at higher prices. And no, we don’t expect a return of the microSD card slot for expanding storage. Sad face.

Recent certifications from the Federal Communications Commission show that the base S23 will have a 3,900mAh battery, a step up from the base S23’s 3,700mAh, while the S23 Plus will also get a 4,700mAh battery bump. There’s no official figure for the Ultra model yet, but again Ice Universe suggests it’ll have the same 5,000mAh cell size as the S22 Ultra.

We’ll likely know more as we progress through January and get closer to the planned February release date. But if the rumors turn out to be true, the Galaxy S23 line will likely be a modest step up from the Galaxy S22 family.
