It’s that time of year already: The Samsung S23 is preparing for February 2023, according to reports

Samsung prepares its most important phone for the first third of the year, according to reports.


Samsung already activated the counter. The South Korean firm enters the final stretch to prepare for the arrival of the new Galaxy S23 next year, and the three models that we take for granted seem to arrive, according to reports, at the traditional time threshold: 

report from Chosun indicates that Samsung will present the S23, the 23+ variant and its S23 Ultra series in the first week of February 2023, very close to the anniversary of the S22 on the 9th of that month. According to the information, the event will be face-to-face and will take place in the city of San Francisco.

This could bring forward the arrival of Samsung’s flagship devices by a week. According to a source close to Samsung quoted by the media, the announcement will take place on February 3.

The S23 arrive earlier

With this possible date, everything would suggest that the availability of the equipment in international markets is also brought forward. In general, and depending on the distribution of Samsung, the new equipment would be presented “on Friday after two weeks”: February 17.

Rumors point to the inclusion of Qualcomm’s new processor , the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, as well as a redesign on the S23 and S23+ models to bring them closer to the flat back cover of the Ultra model. However, the use of the Exynos 2300 processor for select markets is not ruled out.

The great novelty in 2023 would be the inclusion of a 200 MP ISOCELL HP3 sensor developed by Samsung in the lens arrangement of the S23 Ultra, a different integrated from the one that appears in models such as the Xiaomi 12T Pro and the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, based on in the HP1.

Nothing from the S22 FE

Nothing is known about the S22 FE variant, a series that lost traction with the late announcement of the S21 FE at CES 2022. Previous reports indicate that Samsung would have reassessed internally the need for a new model, and that already They do not estimate to release an update this 2023.

The successful S20 FE paved the way for Samsung’s affordable, well-specified phone concept, balancing high-end components in a different package than the premium S series.

However, the new Galaxy A catalog has achieved greater dynamism, along with the price reduction in the traditional S21. The strategy would no longer need, for the moment, a new intermediate smartphone.
