Samsung officially announced Galaxy S23 Series at the epic Galaxy Unpacked event on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, according to prolific leakers @universe ice.
The event will finally unveil the covers for 2023’s most anticipated Android flagship phone, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, and two more affordable versions, the Galaxy S23 Plus and compact Galaxy S23.
However, while this information comes from one of the most knowledgeable Samsung leakers, it’s by no means official, and given that there are still months to go before that date, Samsung could certainly tweak the date. Please note in particular.

What’s New in the Galaxy S23
What can we expect from the Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23 Plus and S23?
The biggest news about the Galaxy S23 family is that Samsung will finally switch to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips and stop selling the flagship Exynos-powered version.
Previously, the company used Snapdragon chips in its US Galaxies, but the rest of the world got phones with less power-efficient and generally less power-efficient Exynos chips. Samsung was forced to essentially switch to Snapdragon chips in that market last year after protests against the practice in India, but the UK and Europe still got their Exynos-powered Galaxies. , this is said to be coming to an end, but we’re looking forward to Samsung officially confirming this at Unpacked 2023.
Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and new 200MP main camera
These two models will also feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips. This is great news for phone speed and productivity.
It could also get some camera improvements, but it won’t have a periscope zoom lens like the S23 Ultra model.
The Galaxy S23 Plus is still a better choice for those wanting a larger screen and longer battery life, but the Galaxy S23 prioritizes one-handed operation and convenience, but comes down to the smallest battery size in the series.
There are currently no rumors of a price increase. That means the Galaxy S23 Ultra base model could start at $1,200, the Galaxy S23 Plus model at $1,000, and the smaller Galaxy S23 at $800.
Are you excited about this possibly earlier launch of the Galaxy S23 series? And which model in particular are you most looking forward to?
