Samsung in its flagship event ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ launched the all new Galaxy S23 series. The series comprises of 3 devices namely Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
There have been some major upgrades from previous year’s flagship. The most advanced device in the Galaxy line-up is said to be a competition for Apple. Let’s discuss in detail
SAMSUNG GALAXY S23
Design-wise one cannot differentiate between Galaxy S23 and its predecessor Galaxy S22. Both are identical except for the missing camera bump on S23. It has a 6.1” AMOLED display with 120hz refresh rate. It supports HDR10+. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Victus 2.
The most significant change is in chipset. All the Galaxy S23 devices run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. There’s a little upgrade in battery capacity as well from 3700mah to 3900 mah in the new device.
Camera remains the same. A 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide, and 10MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom. The selfie camera is of 12MP.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S23+
Again, on the design front, nothing really has changed. It’s the same when compared with S23 only instead of a 6.1” display it has a bigger 6.6” dynamic AMOLED 2x display with up to 1,750 nits of peak brightness.
The battery capacity has increased by 200mAh from 4500mAh in S22+ to 4700 in the new S23+.

They can record 4K 60fps videos from all three rear cameras. It supports up to 45w fast wired charging.

Now, the showstopper! The Galaxy S23 ultra carries the same design as its predecessor with some minor changes. The curved edges have been reduced for a better experience. It has become slightly heavier. It comes with an infinity-o display. It sports a massive 6.8” long AMOLED display with an adaptive 120 hz refresh rate which is the same as its predecessor. The peak brightness has increased.
It is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with an upgraded GPU.
The camera has taken a leap from 108MP last year to 200MP this year. It has a quad camera setup with a 200 MP main shooter, a 12megapixel ultrawide, plus a 3x telephoto and a 10x telephoto, both 10-megapixel sensors. The selfie camera has come down from 40 MP to 12MP. It sports the same 5000mah battery.
The standout feature continues to be the S-pen. Originally from the note series, this pen offers exciting features which make the Ultra one of the best in android market.
