Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at its mid-year Unpacked, and all of our eyes are on the next Unpacked which will bring the Galaxy S23 series. Ahead of the release, tipster IceUniverse shared important information that suggests the Galaxy S23 and S23+ won’t get a new design, camera and display.
According to the tipster, the design, camera, screen and resolution of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ smartphones will be identical to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+, respectively. At the same time, the source claimed that the bezels of all three models including S23 Ultra will be a little wider, which doesn’t make sense.
The tipster didn’t talk about the design and camera specs of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is rumored to be packed with a giant 200MP ISOCELL HP2 lens. However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumored to come with wider bezels, which could be Samsung’s durability expansion decision.
Galaxy S22, S22+
The Galaxy S22 features a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with up to 1300 nits (peak) brightness, 87.4% screen-to-body ratio, and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. The Galaxy S22+, on the other hand, comes with 6.6 inches Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with 1750 nits (peak) brightness and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution.
Samsung might launch the Galaxy S23 series smartphones in early 2023, most possibly in February. The lineup will include three models the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. The top variant of this lineup is rumored to feature an unreleased 200MP primary camera sensor.
