In what is turning out to be unintentional information disclosure, Samsung is set to launch its highly anticipated Galaxy S23 series on February 1. This is according to a recent announcement on the company’s Colombia website. The teaser for the event and as expected has since been removed, featured the tagline “Epic moments are coming” and showed three vertically arranged cameras with leaves and lilacs in the corner, hinting at the design and possible color options for the new phones.
Recent reports indicate plans by Samsung to ditch the Contour Cut Design of previous models in favor of a vertical camera layout on the Galaxy S23, S23 Ultra, and S23+. Additionally, the Ultra model which traditionally packs a punch of the lot is rumored to have four rear cameras, while the standard and Plus models will reportedly have three instead. Designwise, the S23 series is expected to resemble the S22 series, with Cotton Flower, Misty Lilac, Botanic Green, and Phantom Black color options.
As for hardware, the new Galaxy S23 phones are rumored to be powered by a tweaked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. The S23 Ultra will have a 200MP main camera, while the other models will reportedly have a 50MP resolution. The phones are also expected to feature new camera capabilities and battery upgrades and will run on One UI 5.1 based on Android 13.
And while these details are yet to be officially confirmed by Samsung, the expected launch date of less than a month away means that more information is likely to be revealed in the near future. Stay tuned for updates.
