Samsung Galaxy S23 series: price

Regardless of how many leaks there have been around the Galaxy S23 – and seriously, this thing has leaked like a sieve – we don’t know all about it yet.

First, we’re not sure how much it will cost yet.

The smart money (pun intended) says that at least in the US, all three models will keep the prices of the S22. If true, that would mean prices of $799.99, $999.99 and $1,199.99 respectively for the base variants.

However, earlier this week we heard rumors that Galaxy S23 prices could rise in some countries – and significantly. Fingers crossed that’s not the case.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Series: Design

As Samsung fans already know, we’re expecting three members of the Galaxy S23 series in just over an hour: the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S23 Plus and the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The leaked image of dummy units seen below (credit: Sonny Dickson) echoes other leaks and rumors surrounding the design direction Samsung is taking with this generation. Each device is remarkably similar in shape to the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

This year’s standard and Plus models of the S23 seem to be shedding the Contour Cut camera module found on the previous two generations of Galaxy S phones, in favor of something sleeker and sharper.

Marc McLaren, BingoTingo’s editor-in-chief, has done extensive research on the difference between the three expected models in our Samsung Galaxy S23 vs S23 Plus vs S23 Ultra comparison feature.

What we expect to see at Samsung Unpacked

There are already a lot of rumors going around, but what exactly do we expect to see at Unpacked? The main news will be the S23 series, but here’s a broad overview of everything likely to be on the way.

Samsung Galaxy S23: The S23 looks like a relatively minor upgrade over the Samsung Galaxy S22, with the same 6.1-inch FHD+ display, 120Hz refresh rate, and same rear camera setup. But a new chipset – most likely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 – looks good and the design should be brought more in line with the S23 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus: As with the S23, the Galaxy S23 Plus is likely to be an evolution rather than a revolution. Expect a bigger 6.6-inch FHD+ display and bigger battery than on the vanilla model, but not many other differences.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: The standout reveal at Galaxy Unpacked should be the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Besides getting a powerful new chipset, it is tipped to get a whopping 200MP sensor on the rear camera. Elsewhere, a 6.8-inch QHD+ display, up to 12GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage and a 5,000mAh battery should give it the specs to compete with the top phones.

Samsung Galaxy Book 3 family: Rumors suggest that several Galaxy Book 3 models will debut at Unpacked, including the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360, and the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra.

One User Interface 5.1: The only software reveal at the event is likely to be the latest version of Samsung’s One UI. This is unlikely to be a huge release, with bigger changes likely to be held back for the arrival of Android 14 later this year.

Good afternoon and welcome to our Samsung Galaxy S23 live blog.

We’re now just over two hours away from Samsung Galaxy Unpacked, which kicks off today at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT on February 1, or 5am AEDT on February 2 for those tuning in from Australia.

The last-minute leaks were aplenty, with official images, marketing videos and spec sheets giving us a pretty clear idea of ​​what to expect from Samsung’s flagships (at least on paper).

But while providing a refresher on what we already know about the S23 series, this live blog will also highlight the details we don’t know, such as their pricing and release dates. We also bring you our expert opinions on features such as the S23 camera systems and processors.

So, let’s start the show…
