Samsung Announces New Flagship Smartphone Series
Samsung unveiled three flagship models in the S23 series during its Galaxy Unpacked event. All models come with a customized Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset that delivers enhanced gaming performance, and upgraded camera specs.
The series comprises of 6.1-inch Galaxy S23, 6.6-inch S23 Plus, and 6.8-inch S23 Ultra. All three models feature slightly larger batteries than the Galaxy S22 range. The models come in phantom black, cream, green, and lavender, and will be available from 17 February. Galaxy S23 pricing starts at $799, the S23 Plus at $999, and the Ultra at $1,199.
“We’re on a mission to redefine peak performance by bringing together powerful, lasting innovations and sustainability,” said TM Roh, head of Samsung’s Mobile eXperience business. Much of the differentiation in the new models is around improved photography and video capabilities, with upgraded selfie cameras and support for 8k video. The Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a 200MP adaptive pixel sensor and an embedded S Pen 2.
