A new report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S23 line could be launched in the first week of February. Korean news center Korea JoongAng Daily Reports (opens in new tab) that the new Android phones will be unveiled using the traditional Unpacked livestream format, held in the US. This matches last year’s launch of the Galaxy S22, which was announced on February 9 and went on sale on February 25.
But what can we expect from the Samsung Galaxy S23 line? If we look at the S22 series, we have received three devices: the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The Galaxy S22 Ultra received a five-star review from us and was the turning point in Samsung’s range of smartphones as it unified the Note and S lines into this device. With this in mind, it’s likely we’ll see Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra models when February rolls around.
Leaks for the S23 design have already slipped through the cracks at the Korean tech giant, with the new design appearing to deviate from the design of the Galaxy S21 and S22. The integrated camera bump that blends into the frame design may be on its way out, with a more S22 Ultra-like design featuring separate protruding camera lenses on a flat back panel. Leaked renders of OnLeaks (opens in new tab) and Digit.in (opens in new tab) give us a good insight into what the S23 could look like, retaining the punch-hole screen on the front and a metal frame surrounding the device.
We’ll be sure to bring you all the major leaks about the device over the coming weeks as we build what could be our first official look at the Galaxy S23.
