Upcomeng Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Everything we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy S23 series and what we wish to see
The largest producer of smartphones in the world is still Samsung.The popularity of its Galaxy S range is a major factor in its astounding success.As some of the most well-known and highly regarded gadgets on the market, the Galaxy S range has come to be associated with Android over time.With the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, we anticipate that to continue in 2023.
What could Samsung have in store for the Galaxy S23 line? There are a lot of unknown details as of right now, but we can make plenty of assumptions based on what Samsung has done in the past. Meanwhile, we also can make a wishlist of features we hope Samsung brings around for the Galaxy S23 phones. Continue on for what we know and what hope to see!
A Samsung Galaxy S23 series will there be one?
The most well-known premium smartphone series from Samsung is the Galaxy S range.
As it has done each year since 2010, it seemed inevitable that the corporation would release a new installment in the series.
Naturally, Samsung has already thrown curveballs when it comes to the titles of the phones.
We moved straight from the Galaxy S10 series to the Galaxy S20 series, for instance.
Samsung did this, though, primarily to make sure the name of the phone matched the year it was released.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series would therefore almost certainly be the name of the upcoming Galaxy S range.
What day will the Samsung Galaxy S23 go on sale?
Samsung has traditionally released its Galaxy S smartphones within the first three months of the year.
With the exception of the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung has launched them in recent years around February.
The COVID-19 pandemic was probably to blame for this.
It seems sense that Samsung would introduce its Galaxy S23 line of smartphones in February 2023.
Don’t discount a January or even a March launch, though. In the past, Samsung has introduced the phones during certain months. Furthermore, it’s unclear how the company’s intentions may change in light of the ongoing global semiconductor scarcity.
What specs and features are expected for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series?
Starting in the late summer, there are generally a lot of leaks and rumors about the upcoming Galaxy S release. As a result, many of those leaks ought to stop soon. Here is what we may infer from prior Galaxy S releases in the interim.
In 2022, the Galaxy S range had one of its largest changes yet. At that point, Samsung redesigned the Galaxy S22 Ultra to more closely resemble a Galaxy Note phone in both appearance and functionality.
This includes having a S Pen slot and a boxy shape.
When compared to the earlier models, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus were substantially unchanged.
It’s extremely likely that Samsung will employ this tactic again in 2023. If that were to occur, the Galaxy S23 Ultra would resemble the Galaxy S22 Ultra greatly, and the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus would also not differ significantly.
“We anticipate the Galaxy S23 series to resemble the Galaxy S22 series in appearance.”
The similar approach is used by Apple for their iPhones. Apple rarely dramatically changes the way its phones look; instead, it chooses to gradually improve the design every year. Our bet is that Samsung will continue to use the same approach with the Galaxy S range.
Almost invariably, Samsung Galaxy S phones are the first devices with the newest Qualcomm flagship silicon that are made available worldwide. We do not anticipate that this will change in 2023.
As a result, the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to be inside all three Samsung Galaxy S23 devices. While other nations would receive the undisclosed Exynos 2300, it would only apply to smartphones sold in North America, Korea, and India. In 2023, we do not anticipate Samsung to fully commit to Qualcomm or Exynos.
Additionally, Samsung has hardly ever reduced specifications over time. When compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, we anticipate the Galaxy S23 Ultra to feature identical or better specifications overall.
That would require a minimum of 5,000mAh battery, at least 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 1440p display with at least a 120Hz refresh rate, and a wired charging speed of at least 45W.
Additionally, it would require a comparable quad-sensor back camera with two telephoto lenses and a primary sensor with a resolution equal to or greater than 108MP.
What will the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S23 be?
Samsung made the right decision in 2021 by drastically reducing the cost of the Galaxy S21 series in comparison to the Galaxy S20 family. By releasing the Galaxy S22 series at the same costs as the Galaxy S21 family in 2022, Samsung made the right decision once more.
I hope Samsung sticks with this plan through 2023. If so, the prices for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra would be $799, $999, and $1,199, respectively.
Even if Samsung were to alter the prices, it seems quite improbable that it would do so now.
According to the costs of Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy A series, the corporation cannot really reduce the prices of the Galaxy S line without devaluing the name. However, there is still some room, so it is possible that Samsung will reduce the price of the Galaxy S23 by a little sum, say $50 or so. However, the only way we can envision this happening is if Samsung’s foldables experience a major price drop.
Samsung would have to modify the Galaxy S range to account for it if it occurred.
Being able to purchase a foldable Galaxy Z Flip 3 for the same price as a Galaxy S22 Plus is already a little strange.
Regardless, we’re going to presume Samsung won’t change the Galaxy S cost in 2023 until we hear otherwise.
What we hope to see from the Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Most likely among the top smartphones of 2023 will be those in the Galaxy S23 series.
They’ll probably be excellent even if Samsung makes only minor improvements from the Galaxy S22 family.
The phones could always be improved, though. Below is a wishlist of a few items we’d like to see Samsung change between the 2022 and 2023 models.
Specifically for the Galaxy S23, larger batteries
The batteries within the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus were mysteriously shrunk by Samsung.
Obviously, this led to both phones’ batteries lasting less time than those of their Galaxy S21 equivalents.
On the Plus model, the effects weren’t as severe, but the stock S22 obviously suffered.
We’re not sure why Samsung anticipated a different result.
We hope Samsung corrects this error in 2023. Batteries for the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus must be at least as big as those for the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus. The corresponding mAh values are 4,000 and 4,800. It would be much great if the business could grow. There may be space for software optimization in this area as well since even the Galaxy S22 Ultra doesn’t have the best battery life while using the same cell as its immediate predecessor.
Our second-biggest complaint about the Galaxy S22 series, after battery life issues, was speaker quality.
Considering the history of the Galaxy S brand, the speakers on all models—even the Galaxy S22 Ultra—left a little to be desired. They weren’t terrible by any means, but they lacked overall oomph.
Hope Samsung spends a little more money in 2023 on better speakers.
More storage options (or the return of a microSD card slot)
You can choose between a 128, 256, or 512GB versions of the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
You may even go as high as 1TB. What if you prefer a Galaxy S22 or Galaxy S22 Plus instead?
Unfortunately, your internal storage options are 128GB or 256GB.
That could not be sufficient for you, depending on your demands. For the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, we’d love to see 512GB and 1TB storage possibilities.
Of course, we’d also adore the return of the microSD card slot, as it would essentially solve everyone’s storage issues. On that one, though, we’re not holding our breath.
