Galaxy S23 Ultra

Going by the statement of Samsung President TM Roh, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will pack a Galaxy Note line design such as sharper corners, a bigger display, and S Pen support alongside its dedicated compartment.
With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the South Korean tech giant has impressively reduced the latency of the S Pen, making the note-taking experience similar to the real pen-copy writing feel. We can expect, the company will bring more features and durability with the next generation of Galaxy S Ultra.
