- It is said to have greater stamina and faster performance.
Rumors of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 lineup started making headlines a few months after the launch of the Galaxy S22 series, and a new leak could back up those claims with a long list of specs.
According Yogesh Brar (opens in a new tab), which has a reputation for mostly believable leaks, the vanilla Samsung Galaxy S23 will have incremental improvements over its predecessor. This implies that the next device will have the same 6.1-inch FHD+ sAMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate as the standard Samsung Galaxy S22.
The cameras may also remain unchanged, with a 50MP main sensor, 12MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and 10MP telephoto lens. On the front, there will likely be a 10MP selfie snapper.
Earlier rumors suggested that the Galaxy S23 series would have similar dimensions to the current flagship models. However, the rear camera is said to have been designed differently, ditching the usual accentuated camera island in favor of a vertical lens alignment similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
On the other hand, the processor should unsurprisingly see a refresh. The Galaxy S23 may have beefier processing chops as it will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which will also power many of tomorrow’s top Android phones.
In terms of battery capacity, the upcoming handset will pack a larger 3,900mAh unit than the Galaxy S22’s 3,700mAh unit. While the potential battery upgrade is welcome, its fast charging and wireless charging capabilities would be the same as the current model (25W wired charging and 15W wireless charging).
Samsung may also offer various storage variants of the phone including a 256GB configuration as well as a 128GB variant. user interface thanks to Samsung One UI 5 based on Android 13.
However, if this new rumor is true, the striking hardware similarity between Samsung’s current model and its successor will leave you wondering what else is new in the company’s next flagship line.
