Note: Samsung has yet to publicize the Galaxy S23 series officially. Therefore, the information on this page is based on rumors and conjecture. But, of course, this page is regularly updated, so you will always find the latest information here.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 is the absolute showpiece of the S23 series. It has the largest screen, the most cameras and all kinds of ingenious functions. On this page, you can read everything about the smartphone. Are you now looking for a high-end device from Samsung? Then take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: you need to know this
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the direct successor to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. We expect a similar device, so count on a sturdy smartphone with a screen of about 6.8 inches. Of course, it is an AMOLED Display with perfect contrast and dazzling colors. This makes your favorite series and games look great. Unlike the ‘regular’ S23 and S23 Plus, it has a curved screen that runs over the edges.
The maximum refresh rate is at least 120Hz. That is, pixels are refreshed 120 times per second. This gives you a very smooth viewing experience. In addition, behind the screen, you will find an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock the smartphone safely.
What probably needs to be added to the screen is the selfie camera. On the Galaxy Z Fold 3, this lens is incorporated under the display, but with the S line, Samsung is sticking to an ‘old-fashioned’ hole for the time being. However, there is also good news because the company would overhaul this camera on the S23 Ultra. This way, your selfies look even better, and you can make video calls in better quality.
Faster hardware, new camera?
A new year means a new processor. Samsung provides the Galaxy S23 Ultra with an even faster Exynos chip of its own making. It’s also slightly more economical than the previous variant, which is good news for battery life. In addition, we expect Samsung to provide an S Pen again. With this stylus, you can draw on the screen and take a photo from a distance, for example.
In recent generations, Samsung built a 108 megapixel camera into its Ultra models. As a result, the S23 Ultra may get a camera with no less than 200 megapixels resolution. In addition, you can take wider shots with the ultra-wide-angle lens, and you have two telephoto lenses at your disposal to zoom in with.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Release date & price
Samsung ships the Galaxy S23 Ultra with Android 13 and the One UI 5.0 shell. That is Samsung’s sauce that visually adjusts quite a bit. There are also various own apps and third-party applications on the device.
