Samsung remains the largest smartphone producer in the world. The popularity of the Galaxy S line is a significant factor in Samsung’s phenomenal success. As some of the most well-known and revered gadgets on the market, the Galaxy S series has grown synonymous with Android throughout the years. We anticipate this trend to continue with the Samsung Galaxy S23 series in 2023.
What might Samsung have planned for the Galaxy S23 series? There are many unknown details at this time, but we can make numerous predictions based on Samsung’s prior actions. In the meantime, we may also construct a wishlist of features we hope Samsung will implement in the Galaxy S23 phones.
Will Samsung release a Galaxy S23 series?
Samsung’s most popular premium smartphone series is the Galaxy S Series. It seemed inevitable that the corporation would release a new installment in the series, as it has done annually since 2010.
A lesson in history: the Samsung Galaxy S series
Samsung has certainly thrown curveballs in the past when it comes to the titles of its phones. We jumped from the Galaxy S10 series to the Galaxy S20 series, for instance. However, Samsung did this mostly to fit the name of the phone with its release year. Therefore, it is quite probable that the new Galaxy S line will be referred to as the Samsung Galaxy S23 series.
When will the Samsung Galaxy S23 be available for purchase?
Samsung has historically released Galaxy S phones within the first three months of the year. In recent years, Samsung has released them in February, except for the Galaxy S21 series. This was probably the result of the COVID-19 epidemic.
It would make sense for Samsung to release the Galaxy S23 series in February 2023. However, a January or perhaps March launch should not be ruled out. The phones were released by Samsung during those months in the past. In addition, it is impossible to predict how the global chip shortage could affect the company’s goals.
What characteristics and features will the Samsung Galaxy S23 series possess?
The Magnify function is extremely useful for folks with poor eyesight.
Beginning in late summer, we typically hear considerable leaks and rumors regarding the next Galaxy S release. Consequently, we anticipate observing a significant reduction in this leakage soon. Here’s what we’ve learned from prior Galaxy S debuts in the interim.
In 2022, the Galaxy S range had one of its greatest-ever changes. At that time, Samsung redesigned the Galaxy S22 Ultra to more closely resemble the Galaxy Note. This included its boxy appearance and S Pen slot.
However, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus were virtually unchanged from their predecessors. Samsung will likely continue this method in 2023. If this were to occur, the Galaxy S23 Ultra would resemble the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus would not differ significantly.
We anticipate the Galaxy S23 series to closely resemble the Galaxy S22 series.
Apple adopts this same method for iPhones. Each year, Apple prefers to subtly enhance the design of its smartphones, as opposed to undergoing radical redesigns. We anticipate Samsung to continue utilizing the same method for the Galaxy S line.
Specifications and features
Samsung Galaxy S smartphones are almost always the first internationally available devices to include Qualcomm’s current flagship processor. We do not anticipate any differences in this regard in 2023. Therefore, you may anticipate that all three Samsung Galaxy S23 devices will contain the unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. This would be the case for devices in North America, Korea, and India, whereas other regions would receive the unknown Exynos 2300. In 2023, we do not anticipate Samsung to fully commit to either Qualcomm or Exynos.
Samsung also seldom degrades specifications over time. We anticipate that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature identical or superior specifications to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This would require a minimum of 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 1440p display with a refresh rate of at least 120Hz, a battery capacity of at least 5,000mAh, and a wired charging speed of at least 45W. It would also necessitate a similar quad-sensor back camera with two telephoto lenses and a primary sensor of 108MP or higher resolution. There are unconfirmed speculations about a 200MP camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but until more credible sources emerge, we recommend taking these rumors with a grain of salt.
In the meantime, the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus should share several characteristics with the Galaxy S22 series. This would require a minimum of 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and 1080p monitors with a refresh rate of 120Hz. With a wide, ultrawide, and telephoto lens, the camera configuration on the rear would presumably remain the same.
Battery life was one of the most common complaints about the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus. In 2023, it would make a great deal of sense for Samsung to raise the battery capacity of both models. However, we currently lack evidence to support this claim.
What will the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S23 be?
Samsung took the correct decision in 2021 by considerably reducing the costs of the Galaxy S21 series in comparison to the Galaxy S20 family. In 2022, Samsung made the correct decision by pricing the Galaxy S22 series similar to the Galaxy S21 family.
Hopefully, Samsung will maintain this plan till 2023. If so, the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra from Samsung would cost $799, $999, and $1,199, respectively.
If Samsung does modify the prices, it seems doubtful that they will decrease at this time. Taking into account the costs for Samsung’s lower-end Galaxy A series, the business cannot reduce the price of the Galaxy S line without diluting the brand. However, there is still some wiggle area, so it would not be out of the question for Samsung to reduce the price of the Galaxy S23 by, say, $50. The only reason we can imagine this happening is if Samsung’s foldablesfoldable become much less expensive. If this were to occur, Samsung would need to adjust the Galaxy S range. Considering that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is available for the same price as the Galaxy S22 Plus, it’s already a little odd that it’s foldable.
Regardless, until we hear otherwise, we will presume that Samsung will not alter Galaxy S pricing in 2023.
What We Hope to See with the Samsung Galaxy S23
The Galaxy S23 series will certainly be among the finest mobile devices of 2023. Even if Samsung makes a fewmakes few modifications to the Galaxy S22 series, they will likely be excellent. Nevertheless, the phones might always be improved. Below is a list of items we hope Samsung will change in 2023 models as opposed to 2022 models.
Larger batteries for the Galaxy S23
Samsung lowered the battery capacities of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus for no apparent reason. Clearly, this diminished the battery life of both phones in comparison to the Galaxy S21 models. The effects were less severe on the Plus model, but the S22 in its purest form was severely affected. We have no idea why Samsung anticipated a different conclusion.
We hope Samsung corrects this error in 2023. The batteries of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus must be at least the same size as those of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus. That is 4000mAh and 4800mAh, respectively. If the business can expand, it would be even better. Even with the same battery cell as its predecessor, the Galaxy S22 Ultra does not have the best battery life, so perhaps there is an opportunity for software optimization here as well.
Outside of battery life issues, the quality of the Galaxy S22’s speakers was our second major criticism. Despite the illustrious heritage of the Galaxy S moniker, the speakers on all models, even the Galaxy S22 Ultra, left a bit to be desired. They were by no means awful but lacked impact in every respect. Let’s hope that in 2023 Samsung invests more money in speakers of superior quality.
More storage alternatives (or the return of a microSD card slot)
If you decide to get a Galaxy S22 Ultra, you can choose between models with 128, 256, or 512GB of storage. You can even go up to 1 terabyte. However, what if you desire a Galaxy S22 or Galaxy S22 Plus? Unfortunately, internal storage is limited to either 128GB or 256GB.
Depending on your requirements, that may not be sufficient. For the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, we would love to see 512GB and 1TB storage options.
Of course, we would also love to see the return of the microSD card slot, which would essentially fix everyone’s storage issues. However, we are not holding our breath for this one.
An update that will eventually rival Apple’s
Samsung’s update guarantee is the greatest in the Android universe. Samsung offers four Android upgrades and five years of security patches for its flagship and even some of its mid-range smartphones. Even Google cannot compete with that.
However, this improvement falls short of what Apple delivers for its iPhones. It would be fantastic if Samsung eventually matched Apple by providing five years of complete support and five Android upgrades.
Not only would Samsung consumers benefit from this, but so would the entire Android ecosystem. If Samsung were to match Apple, other Android OEMs would be forced to do the same. It could take some time, but it would occur. What better way to begin a trend than with the Samsung Galaxy S23?
