Rumored Samsung S23 Models 

Per the last few Samsung releases, you can expect to see three new Samsung Galaxy S23 models being introduced on February 1st. 

The rumored Samsung S23 seems to be very similar to the Samsung S22, with a few key differences. The newer models will feature a new chipset with most rumors pointing to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Some of the new additions in the chipset include an enhanced image signal processor for photo and video, better gaming visuals, more artificial intelligence capabilities and more. The Samsung S23 is also rumored to have a slightly larger battery in comparison to its predecessor, along with the Samsung S23+. 

The rumored Samsung S23 Plus is also expected at the device release event. This model is predicted to have the same 6.6” display size as the Samsung S22, but a larger battery at 4,700 mAh

Last but not least, the Samsung S23 Ultra. While the leaked rumors have been minimal for the larger 2023 model, there is one feature that has the internet buzzing. It’s rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to have a 200MP main camera, an incredible advancement in phone photography tech. This has yet to be confirmed by Samsung so we’ll have to wait until February 1st to learn more about the new camera setup.
