Galaxy S23 release date

The Galaxy S23 phones can be released on February 24, 2023, if Samsung`s preceding launches are any indication. Samsung pulled the S21 and S22 release schedules ahead in order that they release shortly earlier than the Mobile World Congress which starts on a Monday in overdue February.

The MWC expo is scheduled for Mon, Feb 27, 2023 – Thu, Mar 2, 2023, so the Galaxy S23 series need to release Friday earlier than it, on February 24, 2023. If Samsung keeps the Galaxy S23 announcement schedule intact, the Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra occasion and preorders begin could fall on February 8, 2024.

Samsung Galaxy S23 price

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to sport the same $1199.99 starting price as its predecessor unless the supply chain challenges persist into its mass production schedule, or Samsung decides that a new quad-curve design and a 200MP camera sensor warrant a higher S23 price.

For the S22 Ultra it tucked the S Pen in and kept the battery size huge, but still charged the same, so we keep our hopes high about a $799 Galaxy S23 starting price, $999 tag for the Galaxy S23+, and the sweet $1199 Galaxy S23 Ultra price spot.

Galaxy S23 camera

The biggest hardware upgrade that will arrive with the Galaxy S23 series was expected to be Samsung’s new 200MP main camera sensor destined for the S23 Ultra., but the latest tips from credible sources say that Samsung won’t go that far. A recent unveiling of the ISOCELL HP3 200MP camera sensor by Samsung could have poured more water into that respective rumor mill.

 as the 108MP sensor of the S22 Ultra is no slouch, even though it’s getting a bit long in the tooth as Samsung has been using such sensors for three years in a row now. As for the S23 and S23+, they could very well inherit the 108MP sensor that the Ultra now carries for added wow factor before eager buyers.

Galaxy S23 storage

Moreover, Samsung announced the latest version of its Universal Flash Storage (UFS) solution and version 4.0 will go into mass production during the third quarter of this year. UFS 4.0 will deliver big-time gains in speed and efficiency for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. We could see the UFS 4.0 storage solution debut on the 2022 flagship foldable from Samsung and UFS 4.0 will most certainly be present on the 2023 Galaxy S23 flagship series.

As the manufacturer of its own RAM memory and internal flash storage chips, Samsung can afford to be generous with its phones’ gigabytes. With the Galaxy S23, Samsung may finally break the cycle of 128GB starting storage, at least for the Ultra variant. 

The S22 Ultra was rumored to start from 256GB this time, but the speculation may hold water for its successor which will have a much-upgraded camera sensor that can capture huge single RAW photo files and breathtaking 8K video footage that will occupy a lot of space inside, so 128 gigs may simply not cut it this time.

Galaxy S23 design

a new Galaxy S23 Ultra design concept video by Technizo fleshes out how a giant sensor might look next to the other camera paraphernalia, but don’t hold your breath for a 200MP unit.

Galaxy S23 display

A quad-curved S23 Ultra display doesn’t make a whole lot of sense on a phone with an S Pen stylus integration, though, as you need as much flat canvas to doodle on as possible, so that part of the Galaxy S23 series display rumors may have been referring to the smaller S23 and S23+ siblings. If the Galaxy S23 and S23+ inherit the 108MP camera sensor of Samsung, just like their predecessors are now both equipped with the same 50MP sensor, their rears will look different, but it remains to be heard if their fronts will be unorthodox and curved on all sides.

For the S23 Ultra, Samsung is likely to employ the same 6th-gen OLED panel as on the S22 Ultra as the 8.5-gen tech that could also include long-life dual-stack OLED panels which consume 30% less energy and are much brighter, may not be ready for mass production at launch time. For the Galaxy S23 and S23+, however, Samsung could employ its frugal LTPO display technology that can sport a 10Hz-120Hz dynamic refresh rate, unlike the 48Hz-120Hz range that their predecessors are capable of, thus saving on battery draw when not needed. 

Galaxy S23 battery

The battery life of the Galaxy S23 series is expected to get a bump from the utilization of a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor made on the 3nm technology, as well as the new OLED panel generations they may bring to the table. If Samsung goes with a complete redesign and a waterfall display on the S23 series, though, the S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra battery sizes may have to be shrunk and their capacity lowered which will offset the more frugal hardware to arrive at the battery life we tested on the S22 models.
