Samsung will definitely release a sequel to the S22 series, but what improvements can we see? That’s all that is known about the future device at this stage.
Every year since 2010, Samsung has released a new model in its popular flagship Galaxy S series, and we expect 2023 to continue this great tradition. It’s still too early for reliable rumors about this smartphone, but in the article below, we’ve compiled everything we know about it at the moment.
Galaxy S series release dates have been pretty consistent over the past few years – just look at the dates previous models in the series were announced:
- Samsung Galaxy S10: February 2019
- Samsung Galaxy S20: February 2020
- Samsung Galaxy S21: January 2021
- Samsung Galaxy S22: February 2022
Based on this, it is fair to assume that the S23 series will be released around February 2023.
The last three entries in the series have stuck to a consistent three-device range; namely the standard model, the Plus version (with a larger screen) and finally the Ultra version, which includes all the most advanced features. The S20 and S21 also later saw the addition of an “FE” or “Fan Edition” version that was launched a few months later, but we haven’t seen that happen for the S22 yet.
We expect a similar set of products to be included in the Galaxy S23 series as well, though this has yet to be confirmed.
In terms of pricing, we’re also going to check out the trends of previous Galaxy S phones.
These are the starting prices for the Galaxy S21 series models:
And here are the starting prices for the models of the Galaxy S22 series:
As you can see, prices have remained the same. There’s no guarantee this will happen for the third year in a row – it seems rather unlikely in fact – but we expect prices to stay the same as this pricing model seems to have worked well for Samsung so far.
Leaks and rumors
Because the expected launch date is so far away, accurate Galaxy S23 rumors are still somewhat scarce at the moment.
One of the first bits of early information comes from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC). He claims that the Galaxy S23 will be codenamed “Project Diamond” internally, but it’s unclear if such a shiny name will have anything to do with the final product that will be released.
Also, following last year’s trends, it’s highly likely that the next Galaxy S phone will be powered by the next-gen Snapdragon or Exynos flagship chip, depending on the region. The European variants of the Galaxy S22 were powered by the Exynos 2200, while the rest of the world was powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, so the Exynos 2300 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the S23 series could very well be coming next year.
What would we like to see in the Galaxy S23 series?
Boost your battery
Based on our experience with the S22 Plus and S22 Ultra, we believe the battery is a key area of improvement for the upcoming S23 series.
While other key features like the screen, camera, and performance are some of the best on any phone you can buy, average battery life is a real weak point, especially when compared to the iPhone 13.
The design of the S22 Ultra also needs some rethinking. While the S22 and its Plus size sibling have a sleek camera module, on the Ultra we find the lenses just stick out, collecting dust and not sitting flush on any surfaces.
Given that this is the brand’s premium phone, more thought needs to be given to both appearance and practicality.
It used to be taken for granted that in the box with any phone, let alone a flagship, there would be a charging box.
You are currently lucky to find it there. However, as phones expand their fast-charging capabilities year after year, that means you’re missing out if you don’t get the built-in update, which means you’ll have to spend even more money on that dongle. accessory.
