Samsung has only recently unveiled its final flagship phones for 2022, the Z Fold4 and Flip4, but its first 2023 launch is already leaking. The forthcoming Galaxy S23 and S23+ are purportedly depicted in new renders in all their splendor. The phones are a little bit bigger than the previous models, and the S22 Ultra-inspired design is present.
These renders were not created by Samsung directly; rather, OnLeaks, which has a reputation for accuracy when working with stolen CAD data, provided them. The shape and size of the device should be fairly close to what we see in a few months, but some aspects, such as the material finish and color, are just educated estimates.
The S23+ (shown above) will be in the middle of the lineup, with the smaller and less expensive S23 on one side and the S23 Ultra on the other. The S23+, according to Smartprix, has a slightly larger overall body but the same 6.6-inch display size as the S22+. The S23+ is expected to be 157.7 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm, whereas the S22+ is 157.4 x 75.8 x 7.6 mm. With more room, Samsung should be able to boost the battery’s capacity, which was smaller in the S22+ than in earlier generations.
Additionally, it appears that Samsung will no longer employ the recognizable camera island that has been a feature of the Galaxy S line for the previous few years. The frame won’t protrude out anymore to enclose the camera sensors. According to rumors, the S23 will have distinct raised rings around each of the three camera sensors, a style that Samsung pioneered with the S22 Ultra earlier in 2022. If you think the base model S23 would look like the S22, think again. Renders of that phone were also leaked via Digit.in. The S23+ looks just like it, but the phone will be smaller and have a 6.1-inch screen.
Given the track record of OnLeaks disclosures, we’d wager that these renders are accurate for the S23+. Samsung is anticipated to officially unveil the S23 family in February 2023, but we won’t know for sure until then. Perhaps Samsung will release a new model with an improvement that cannot be seen in these leaked photos, like as a better primary camera or quicker charging. This is merely a slight design difference from the S22+. In any case, the S23 series will include the most recent Qualcomm CPUs, and it appears that Samsung will once again refrain from providing a subpar Exynos edition for the international market.
