It’s official: Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S23 will launch on February 1.
After appearing ahead of time, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S23 series will be unveiled globally on February 1. The brand has showcased two teaser videos, both highlighting the upgraded camera performance–and a slight tease of the camera module design, which will more or less look like the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The “Made for Moonlight” video appears to refer to the improved low-light performance of the Galaxy S23 thanks to upgraded hardware and optimized software. As the intro implies, the Galaxy S23 should be able to take great photos of the moon–it remains to be seen, however, if they can match or outdo what other brands have accomplished when it comes to capturing moon photos.
The other teaser gives emphasis on “megapixels that will make you say wow”, which further confirms that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will get an all-new main camera–reports say that it will use a new 200-megapixel sensor that’s said to be called the ISOCELL HP2.
All three Galaxy S23 phones will use a Samsung-specific version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that has a higher-clocked prime core, and the Ultra version might use a 12-megapixel selfie shooter instead of the 40-megapixel one used on previous Ultra models. When it comes to storage, Samsung will drop the 128GB option, with all three models set to have 256GB as their base storage.
