The Samsung Galaxy S23 will likely be one of the first flagship phones to launch in 2023, but if a new leak is correct then we shouldn’t expect the three phones in the range to be that different in physical terms from their Samsung Galaxy S22 predecessors.
According to the generally reliable ice universe (opens in new tab) (through GSMArena (opens in new tab)), the dimensions of the 2023 devices will be more or less the same as the 2022 devices, and the respective screen sizes and resolutions will be identical.
This move would be similar to Apple’s latest updates, where the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus in particular are very similar to the designs of the previous two generations.
The new Galaxy S23 leak coincides with an earlier rumor from the same source that said the Galaxy S23 Ultra would match the Galaxy S22 Ultra very closely in terms of looks. Now this information has been extended to cover the full range.
by the numbers
Only the heights and widths are changing, apparently, and only a few tenths of a millimeter. The Galaxy S23 is said to measure 146.3mm x 70.9mm x 7.6mm (compared to the Galaxy S22’s 146mm x 70.6mm x 7.6mm dimensions) and will retain the same screen resolution of 6.1 inches and 2340 x 1080 pixels.
The Galaxy S23 Plus will apparently measure 157.8mm x 76.2mm x 7.6mm (compared to the Galaxy S22 Plus’ dimensions of 157.4mm x 75.8mm x 7.64mm). The screen will again measure 6.6 inches from corner to corner, with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.
And finally, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which will reportedly have dimensions of 163.4mm x 78.1mm x 8.9mm (versus the Galaxy S22’s 163.3mm x 77.9mm x 8.9mm dimensions). Ultra). The screen will apparently be the same again, a 6.8-inch panel with a resolution of 3088 x 1440 pixels.
Analysis: the same but different
We wouldn’t be too disappointed if all the Galaxy S23 updates were on the inside next year – the Galaxy S22 series is stylish enough and there’s always a good chance that Samsung will decide to give us some new colors to choose from in the next time around.
There will certainly be internal updates, starting with the chipset. The next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is apparently ready to make its way into Galaxy S23 phones – and in a change from previous years, there will also be no Exynos chipset variants.
Reports suggest a 200MP camera sensor is on the way for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, although the rear camera upgrades on the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus could be more modest based on what we’ve heard so far.
From what we now know, it doesn’t look like we’ll see anything as innovative as Dynamic Island in the new iPhone 14 Pro models – but Samsung has already put a lot of innovative ideas into its foldable smartphones. there are still months for more leaks to appear.
