Samsung Galaxy S23: everything you need to know

Two-minute preview

  • What is it? The next big flagship phone from Samsung
  • When is it out? Expected to launch in early February
  • How much will it cost? Likely $799 / £769 / AU$1,249 or higher

The Samsung Galaxy S23 will likely be the first big phone launch of 2023, but we’re already hearing that the patterns established in 2022 will continue into this year. The Galaxy S23 is not expected to be a huge upgrade over the Galaxy S22 in any way, from the base model up through the Galaxy S23 Plus. Even the top shelf Galaxy S23 Ultra isn’t expected to get many big feature bumps. 

The design of the Galaxy S23 will likely be near-identical to today’s models, except that the base model Galaxy S23 will reportedly lose its larger camera bump in favor of Galaxy S22 Ultra-style cut outs for the camera. Otherwise the screen size will seemingly be the same for each phone, and the frame is thought to measure nearly identical dimensions.

That isn’t to say there’s nothing to get excited about. Qualcomm has been champing at the bit to show off its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in a Samsung Galaxy S23, and it has been dropping hints that Samsung will be quitting Exynos across the globe in favor of a unified Qualcomm front.
