The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, but also the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus, are already being revealed through images, leaks and rumors. 200-megapixel sensor, telephoto lens, Snapdragon chip, design… We take stock of all the expectations around the next flagships of the Korean giant.

Samsung should announce a Galaxy S23 Ultra early next year, in January or February 2023. The flagship of the Korean giant’s premium range, it is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated smartphones each year. Obviously, two little brothers would accompany him: the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23 Plus.

After an S22 Ultra that is both exciting in terms of its design (inspired by the Note, the disappearance of the photoblock in favor of teardrop-shaped integration), but also a bit disappointing, at least in Europe, due to the half-baked Exynos . 2200, the S23 Ultra is more than ever expected. The same goes for the S23 and S23 Plus in slightly less expensive segments.

Technical sheets

If you want to treat yourself, the complete technical specifications of the smartphones are now available through various leaks. We have gathered them in our dedicated product sheets:


Once it is not customary, the French OnLeaks has published renders of the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ before its officialization. A few hours later, it also showed the expected design of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Should I remind him? The leaker is famous for his good information that he gets through industry sources. The images you share are therefore very believable.

Below is a preview of the classic Samsung Galaxy S23.

Here are some images of the Galaxy S23 Plus as well.

Finally, take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, below.

Promotional images published by mistake of the Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra allow you to get a little more precise idea.

Looking at these renders, the two models are said to be very similar in terms of design, apart from their different sizes. The Samsung Galaxy S23, like the Galaxy S23+, would have the right to an evolution in the photographic section. This would have the same aesthetics as the S22 Ultra. In other words, each camera module would be integrated separately from the others. Also, the colors should be a little less abundant than the previous year. We’d go four colors versus nine on the S22.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, we should expect a slightly revised design at the level of the two cameras on the back (the two on the right). These would fit better in the chassis so as not to protrude in relief unlike the others that remain protruding. Another nuance: the side edges would be significantly less rounded than those of the S22 Ultra. The latter was already very angular.

The dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+ S23 Ultra should vary little from their predecessors. Example :

  • S22 Ultra 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm;
  • S23 Ultra 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.9mm.

The screen, like every year, should set a standard for the rest of the industry. As we remember, Samsung provides most of its competitors’ smartphone panels, and therefore its flagships benefit from the best. A sample of this progress, the screen of the Galaxy S23 Ultra would go up this year to 2200 cd/m².

Other choices are almost certain: the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is fine to continue to ship an S Pen stylet (with a dedicated location for son range) and for tours less than a large polyvalence photo thanks to a good lot of cameras In the back. Small surprise, the stylus should this year adopt the same color as the casing of your phone. We had to take advantage of four variants: black, green, pink (Light Pink) and beige.

New, not necessarily visible, but very useful, the Galaxy S23 Ultra could be one of the first phones to protect its screen behind the new Gorilla Glass Victus 2. Enough to theoretically withstand a drop onto concrete at one meter.


The premium smartphone requires, it is on the photo that various leaks focus. If the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus were based a priori on the photographic components of the S22, the Ultra model could in turn rely on a 200-megapixel sensor made by Samsung. It would be the Isocell HP2, which would be according to Ice Universe the ” better of the three 200-megapixel sensors developed to date by the Korean firm. The brand recently officially presented a sensor that could be that of its future flagship. This should significantly improve night mode according to Ice Universe.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will not be the first smartphone to feature a 200-megapixel photo sensor. This title goes to the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.

For the rest, the rumors coming from galactic clubthey indicate that the phone should retain a 10x optical zoom along with a 10-megapixel sensor. If this were to be confirmed, it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, as this photo module pulls off feats.

Ice Universe has since posted what it claims is a comparison between the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and the Pixel 7 Pro. It’s a crop, meaning we’ve come to zoom in on the image and in this little game, the Samsung’s next phone could well teach its little comrades a lesson.

In video too, the Galaxy S23 would have plenty of news. In fact, it would be capable of shooting in 8K up to 30 fps compared to the previous 24 fps. What better than adapting to televisions. All you need to do now is find an 8K TV.

On the selfie sensor side, Samsung would make a surprising choice. We would thus go from 40 megapixels to 12 megapixels. Hopefully this results in a quality gain.

Performance and autonomy

Now let’s take a look at what’s under the hood.

First news: a priori, Samsung would no longer push its Exynos chips of the S23 generation. For the S23s, that would mean that instead of an Exynos 2300, you’d go with the as-yet-unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Qualcomm has also confirmed the information, so it smells great. It’s even possible that the S23 could benefit from an overclocked version clocked at 3.36 GHz versus the base 3.2 GHz.

If this might seem a bit technical, even minor at first glance, know that the S22 Ultra’s Exynos, and in particular its in-game temperature management, were among the phone’s major flaws in our eyes. Therefore, an S23 Ultra with Snapdragon would be very good news for everyone. We were also able to test the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 under real conditions and the progress compared to the Exynos 2200 is very clear.

The gain over Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 could be significant. According to a leak, the device would gain 36% in CPU, 48% in GPU and 60% in NPU. In addition, Samsung and Qualcomm have signed an important long-term agreement.

Before moving on to autonomy, let’s take a moment on One UI 6 (Android 14). According to information on the site android authoritySamsung would introduce in this generation the“Continuous Updates”, understand by this updates that are made without blocking the smartphone. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra should come with a slightly more advanced version of One UI 5, called One UI 5.1. Enough to add new software.

About the battery, the famous leaker ice universe It advances that the S23 Ultra would maintain a capacity of 5000 mAh, the same as last year. We can expect Samsung to find a way to better optimize its phone for better autonomy. Changing the chip can help. The S23 Plus for its part would gain 200 mAh to reach 4700 mAh and the basic S23, at 3900 mAh, gaining by the same 200 mAh. In addition to this, the Galaxy S23 would introduce a new performance mode called “Light” that would allow you to grab a little more autonomy if the need arises.

When it comes to performance, cooling can play an important role. In this little game, the three Galaxy S23s would not be housed in the same boat. The S23 Ultra would benefit from a vapor chamber, the S23 Plus would have a heat pipe system while the S23 would rely on a few sheets of graphite and its single chassis.

Let’s mention storage, which would increase only on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This could go up to 256 GB on the minimum configuration. On the charging side, bad news: the Galaxy S23 would always settle for a maximum of 25W.

Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra price and release date

The Samsung Galaxy S23 will be unveiled on February 1, 2023. Samsung has announced its Unpacked for this date.

These are the expected prices in dollars: starting at $799 for the Galaxy S23, starting at $999 for the Galaxy S23 Plus, and starting at $1,249 for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The prices in euros could be a little higher: 959 euros for the basic model, 1,219 for the Plus and 1,419 for the Ultra.
