Except for great surprise, Samsung should announce a Galaxy S23 Ultra from the beginning of next year, in January or February 2023. Flagship of the Korean giant’s premium range, it is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated smartphones each year.

After an S22 Ultra that is both exciting in terms of its design (inspired by the Note, the disappearance of the photoblock in favor of a teardrop system), but also a bit disappointing, at least in Europe for a half Exynos. 2200, the S23 Ultra is more than ever expected.

It requires a premium smartphone, it is on the photo that the first leaks are focused. If the Samsung Galaxy S23 was based a priori on the photographic components of the S22, the Ultra model could for its part be based on the brand’s very first 200-megapixel sensor. It would be the Isocell HP2, which according to Ice Universe would be the “best” of the three 200-megapixel sensors developed by the Korean firm.

Otherwise, the rumors coming from galactic club They indicate that the phone should retain a 10X optical zoom along with a 10-megapixel sensor. If this were confirmed, it would not necessarily be a bad thing, since this photo module achieves prowess.

Youtube channels like the well-known Technizo Concept are already having fun offering 3D concepts of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and its photo block for illustrative purposes only.

Performance and autonomy

Now let’s take a look at what’s under the hood.

First news: a priori, Samsung would no longer push its Exynos chips from the S23 generation. For the S23 Ultra, that would mean instead of an Exynos 2300, you’d opt for the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. If this might seem a bit technical, even secondary at first glance, know that the S22 Ultra’s Exynos, and in particular its in-game temperature management, were among the phone’s biggest failings in our eyes. Therefore, an S23 Ultra under Snapdragon would be very good news.

In addition, Samsung and Qualcomm have signed an important long-term agreement.

About the battery, the famous leaker ice universe advances that the S23 Ultra would maintain a capacity of 5000 mAh, the same as last year. We can hope that Samsung will find a way to better optimize your phone for better autonomy. Changing the chip can help.

what we expect

For many elements of the future flagship, it’s still a bit early to tell.

Starting with the design, of which nothing has been leaked yet. So of course, with the redesign of the S22 Ultra having clearly engulfed the Note range, it would be surprising if Samsung didn’t go down this path. So we’re expecting a relatively massive phone, with square edges, as well as a stylus placement.

The same goes for the teardrop design. It’s hard to imagine Samsung going back to a traditional photo block now. On the other hand, where the Korean giant still has wiggle room is in the fact that the sensors protrude at the rear. An even flatter design would be a real feat and a real added value.

Another element some observers would like to see come to the S23 Ultra: an under-display selfie sensor. It is true that Samsung already offers it in its Galaxy Z Fold 3. In addition, the manufacturer ZTE has unveiled a phone that looks like an S22 Ultra with mustaches, but also, and above all, with a camera under the screen.

Galaxy S23 Ultra pricing and availability

Of course, it’s too early to comment on the availability or price of the Galaxy S23 Ultra. However, we can rely on prices and release dates from the previous year.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is available on February 9, 2022. If you are unable to attend a similar event, after the end of January or the February debut, it will be the same reason as the garder and not before the date of arrival. stadium. As for the price, let’s remember the price list of the S22 Ultra when it was launched: it went from 1,259 euros in 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage to 1,459 euros in 12 + 512 GB, in a context of rising prices. It would not be surprising if Samsung is raising the bill a little more.
