If you want to know what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra, look no further. Below we have all the information currently available on these upcoming Galaxy smartphones, and will be updating the page as new information comes to light between now and the official Galaxy S23 release date.

Samsung Galaxy S22 deals

The release of a new generation of smartphone is the perfect time to pick up great deals on the previous gen models. Samsung has sworn to provide 4 years of OS upgrades and 5 years of security patches to any of their S-class smartphones after the release date, so they’re still well worth buying.

You can already pick up great savings on the various Galaxy S22 variants from the Samsung Store and Amazon (Amazon is good if you’re looking for a cheaper refurbished option). Buying from the Samsung Store has the added benefit of allowing additional savings through trading in your old smartphone/tablet/smartwatch when you buy, regardless of the brand/model (though some will give bigger discounts than others, and the condition of the device is a factor).

When does the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch?

The Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 – Part 1 event, which is scheduled to take place on February 1st.

This is when we’ll get our first official look at these devices, besides leaks and rumors, and all the specifications, pricing, pre-order, and release date info will be confirmed.

Samsung is already running a reserve campaign where you can secure yourself these new Galaxy smartphones ahead of the launch, so get yours now.

When will the Samsung Galaxy S23 release?

We don’t have a definitive Samsung Galaxy S23 / Galaxy S23+ / S23 Ultra release date yet, but the current best estimate is the 24th of February, 2023. Read our dedicated Samsung Galaxy S23 release date page for more info.

How much will the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+, and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra cost?

There’s been no definitive word regarding the price of the different Galaxy S23 variants, however, according to known Samsung leaker @RGcloudS the below are what we can expect of the US pricing, and the extrapolated UK pricing based on these estimates.

What to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S23

It seems the standard variant of the Samsung Galaxy S23 isn’t going to vary much from the S22 in most of its features. It looks like the cameras are going to be very similar, possibly the same in terms of lenses and sensors, though more advanced image processing may still mean some improvements to image quality.

The display is likely to have the same 6.1-inch 1080×2340 (442ppi) specs with the same 48-120Hz variable refresh rate. It’s possible that it will have the low refresh rate, battery-saving mode that the S22 Ultra came with (dropping down to 1Hz to conserve power) but recent leaks have thrown cold water onto this.

The main difference seems to be that it will have the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, as opposed to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of the S22. This new CPU will apparently give a 35% performance boost, as well as a 40% increase to efficiency.

This should mean that even though the battery size is only marginally increasing from 3,700 mAh to 3,900 mAh, the battery duration should go further.

What to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S23+

The Samsung Galaxy S23+ will be pretty much the same as the S23 above, except once again coming with a larger 6.6-inch screen size.

What to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the SKU from the series which will have the most changes over the previous generation. It looks like there will no longer be a 128GB storage option for the Ultra model, with the entry-level model coming with a 256GB SSD. The display will apparently be aiming for the crown of the brightest on the market, at 2,150 nits and will come with an LPTO display, which can once again vary between 1-120Hz.
