Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+ promo images leak

Written by admin
If Twitter tipster Ice universe (@UniverseIce) is right, we could be see the Galaxy S23 line launching on February 1 at the next Samsung Unpacked event. Based on Samsung’s previous performance, this would point to a February 10 or February 17 release date for the handsets. Keep that in mind Samsung has not yet announced an official date for its first Unpacked event of 2023.

This year, the rumor mill has produced a doozy. Instead of equipping the Galaxy S line with different chipsets based on region (usually the US, Canada and China would get their Galaxy S units powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon silicon while the rest of the world received phones equipped with Samsung’s Exynos SoC), all Galaxy S23 models will reportedly feature the top-notch Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

This isn’t your grandpa’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, though. The version of this chip produced by leading foundry TSMC will have a powerful X-3 core running at a clock speed of 3.2 GHz. The variant on the way to the Galaxy S23 models does presumably manufactured by Samsung’s own foundry with an overclocked X-3 core running at a clock speed of 3.32 GHz.

We could also see Samsung equip the Galaxy S23 Ultra with a 200MP camera sensor that would be different from the HP1 sensor that Samsung sold to Motorola for the Edge 30 Ultra and the Xiaomi 12T. An improvement is the phone’s ability to shoot 8K video at 30 frames per second (fps) compared to the 24 fps on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. As a result, you may see smoother videos recorded by the Galaxy S23 Ultra in 8K.

Again, the top-of-the-range Ultra model shares a design cue with the late, deplored Galaxy Note series. Note the square corners and of course the Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with the S Pen and the silo to house it.
