Samsung Galaxy S23: why it’s worth waiting for

Samsung is currently hard at work on the Galaxy S23, the next big flagship smartphone. If the rumors are true, then the successor to the S22 will be very exciting.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 already has a lot in store, but when we hear the rumors about the next generation Galaxy S23, the wait is definitely worth it. You will probably have to be patient for about 5 more months, if Samsung releases the S23 like this.

will present. The Galaxy S23 Ultra in particular should clearly stand out again.

Galaxy S23 Ultra with 200 megapixel camera

Since the Galaxy S20 of 2020, Samsung has installed a 108-megapixel camera in the Ultra model, which has been improving every year. Even with the S22, it was rumored that the South Koreans could integrate an even higher resolution camera with a whopping 200 megapixels. It had the world’s first 200-megapixel Isocell HP1 sensor for smartphones.

. However, that did not happen.

Samsung has further developed this image sensor and

The Isocell HP3 was presented at the end of June
. But interestingly, this version is not supposed to work on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Instead, according to the well-known leaker Ice Universe, the Isocell HP2 should be used, which Samsung has not yet announced. And this is said to be better than HP1 and HP3.

In addition, Samsung will probably go back to relying on a 10-megapixel periscope camera with 10x zoom.

Latest Snapdragon instead of Galaxy Exynos chip itself

Until now, Samsung has followed a two-pronged strategy, with Samsung-developed Exynos processors installed in European models. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPUs were used in devices from other markets.

But now it will be like this.

all premium Samsung devices will be based on Snapdragon CPUs
. Consequently, the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 will probably work in the Galaxy S23, which Qualcomm will introduce later this year.

This is actually good news for German users, because the two current Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and 8+ Gen1 chips currently lead the list.

Galaxy S23 with camera under the screen glass?

Although there were rumors that Samsung could install the front camera under the display glass, according to the

Korean blog Naver
however, be off the table. This technology will only be installed on the S series starting with the Galaxy S24.

Because it actually already exists in the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and in the

recently introduced Z Fold 4
a selfie camera under the display glass. However, these foldable cell phones are manufactured in significantly smaller numbers. Mass production of tens of millions of screens with the camera under the glass will probably only be possible from the Galaxy S24 onwards.

Galaxy S23 with new design?

It seems that the Galaxy S23 models will be the same size as their respective predecessors. However, if we look at the design of the camera on the back, there could be some changes, at least judging from the concept designs that users have come up with based on recent rumours.

We still can’t tell if Samsung is actually making such a drastic change to the camera design. Anyway, we like the suggestion.


Based on the current state of rumours, we won’t see any major changes to the design of the Galaxy S23, but users can expect a solid 200-megapixel camera upgrade on the Ultra model and Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon processor. The remaining specifications of the next flagship generations will probably be similar to the current ones: Same screen size with identical adaptive refresh rate. The S23 Ultra’s battery should also stay the same at 5,000mAh. Will there at least finally be faster charging? There is not much information about it yet, but Samsung could go back to supporting a maximum of 45 watts.

A few more details will leak in the coming weeks, which may provide more reasons to wait for the Galaxy S23 (Plus/Ultra).

A new:

Of course, we must bear in mind that there are still quite a few months to go before the launch of the Galaxy S23. Many things can change in this time. But the rumors sound very plausible.
