    Vanilla Galaxy S23 is getting a brightness boost

    Unlike last year, there won't be much difference between the specifications of the vanilla and Plus variants of the Galaxy S23. While the specifications of all three phones in the Galaxy S23 lineup were leaked last week, a new piece of information has surfaced showing that Samsung is reducing the gap between the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra.

    According to tipster Roland Quandt, the vanilla Galaxy S23 model will have an OLED screen with 1,750 nits peak brightness. That's similar to the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra. While Samsung didn't improve the peak display brightness of the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra compared to their predecessors, it brought the vanilla model up to par, which is more important. So, even those buying the base Galaxy S23 series device will get to experience ultra-high screen brightness.

    With this change, the only differences between the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23+ are display size, battery capacity, charging speeds, and UWB. Both phones have the same design, screen resolution and brightness, processor, RAM, wireless charging speeds, and cameras. Speaking of the cameras, Samsung hasn't upgraded the rear cameras on either of these devices, and the only upgrade will come through an improved chipset (and its new ISP) and better image processing. Both phones are getting a new 12MP selfie camera, reportedly capable of capturing 4K 60fps HDR videos.

    The Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy processor, a higher-clocked version of the vanilla Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It features an overclocked CPU and GPU for better performance. Samsung has also reportedly used a better thermal management system, so we expect the upcoming phones to perform better under sustained loads like gaming and continuous camera usage.
