Latest Galaxy S23 Plus news
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 flagship trio should consist of the base S23 model, the S23+, and an Ultra variant. The Galaxy S23+ should fit in between the other two variants in terms of both size and pricing.
However, the Galaxy S23+ should also share many hardware and design characteristics with the rest of the series, especially the Galaxy S23.
Judging by Samsung’s previous Galaxy S flagship trios, the Galaxy S23+ will have the same chipset as the rest of the series and the same camera system as the base model.
Samsung will likely equip the Galaxy S23+ with a new Exynos chipset in some regions and a new Qualcomm chipset in others.
On the Exynos side of the world, the Galaxy S23+ should feature the Exynos 2300 SoC. In other markets, the same device could ship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
The Exynos 2300, codename Quadra, should be manufactured on Samsung’s 3nm GAA process. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm could incorporate the X70 5G modem and be built by TSMC. Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship-grade chipset could get unveiled in November.
For the first time in years, Samsung could upgrade the selfie camera of its base and Plus Galaxy S flagship models.
Both the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ could feature an improved selfie camera with a resolution of 12MP, as opposed to 10MP.
Moving on to the primary camera system, Samsung has introduced two 200MP ISOCELL cameras, but their roles are undetermined. One of these ISOCELL sensors could be used by the Galaxy S23 Ultra. However, it’s unclear if the Galaxy S23+ will stick to a 50MP primary camera or adopt a higher resolution sensor like its larger sibling.
The Galaxy S23+ could have a 10MP telephoto camera, same as the previous models.
Software and Features
Android 13 will be the newest mobile OS version from Google at the time of the Galaxy S23 launching.
One UI 5 could bring new UI tweaks and more personalization options, among other features. Samsung may open a One UI 5.0 beta program in July.
Availability and Price
Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event focused on the Galaxy S23 series should take place in early 2023. Exactly how early remains to be seen.
The Galaxy S23+ could be announced in January or February, judging by previous flagship releases, but this is subject to change.
Samsung released the Galaxy S22+ for $999, and the successor could hit the shelves for a similar price.
