Here’s our first look at Samsung Galaxy S23 series
The camera module gets a design overhaul for the S23 and S23+
The Q3 2022 is coming to an end, and while there is still a quarter left before we enter 2023, we are already getting various leaks and rumors of next year’s phones. This is not surprising since this has been the case for many years. The Galaxy S23 series is launching next year, and we now have the renders of all three phones, courtesy of OnLeaks, who shared the renders in collaboration with SmartPrix and Digit. These renders give us our first look at the designs of all these phones.
Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S23, the only design change is in the camera module design. There is no camera module at all this time, so each camera sensor is placed in its separate circular ring. This is something Samsung did with this year’s S22 Ultra as well. After OnLeaks shared these renders, there were mixed reactions as some liked this new camera setup design, whereas others hated it.
The rest of the phone is the same as the Galaxy S22, so there is a flat display with even bezels all around and a hole punch cutout in the middle. The dimensions of the phone are roughly 146.3 x 70.8 x 7.6mm, and this indicates a display size of around 6.1-inch. In short, the Galaxy S23 will be the same size and thickness as the Galaxy S22, which is not a bad thing since the Galaxy S22 was praised for its beautiful front look and compact form factor.
The Samsung Galaxy S23+ is no different than the Galaxy S23 regarding design differences. Only the camera setup design differs from the S22+, and the rest remains unchanged. The dimensions are roughly 157.7 x 76.1 x 7.6mm, which means almost the same size and thickness as the Galaxy S22+.
Well, we are yet to get the spec sheet of both the phones but speaking of various reports and rumors, the fast charging for the S23 duo will max out at 25W. The S23 is reportedly getting a slightly bigger battery, 5% bigger, to be precise, than the S22. This means that compared to the 3,700mAh battery of the S22, we can expect a 3,900/4,000 mAh battery inside the Galaxy S23. And ofcourse, since these are premium flagship phones of next year, they will be powered by the latest SOC by Qualcomm/Samsung.
Finally, we have the most powerful phone in the S23 series, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Unlike the S23 and S23+, it won’t look any different than the S22 Ultra from the rear. The camera module design is almost the same, except the two small sensors on the right side, are flushed in the back panel. The camera count remains the same as well. Another design change is on the sides. The sides are less curved this time around, which suggests a less curved display than the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The dimensions are 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.8mm which again reveals that the overall look and feel remain unchanged.
