The Galaxy S23 from Samsung is set to be announced on the first day of February. Even though that’s a given, we haven’t seen official marketing photos of the Galaxy S23 leak, at least until now. A new set of official-looking marketing photos have surfaced showcasing the device in four new colors.
The Galaxy S23 is set to be the best of the best, though not much has really surfaced other than the known release date in February and the supposed inclusion of a 200MP camera on the S23 Ultra. Of course, the S23 is set to follow suit and come in three versions: the S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra.
Recently, marketing images surfaced, showcasing the base model Galaxy S23 in several different colorways: Phantom Black, Botanic Green, Mystic Lilac, and Cotton Flower (via WinFuture and Roland Quandt). The Galaxy S23 leak corresponds with the earlier discoveries made in terms of the colors we should be seeing this year.
The most obvious change is the lack of a vertical camera bar we’ve become so accustomed to. Now, each lens sits attached directly to the matte glass rear of the device. With that, the entire design looks to be a little more refined and just a bit more luxury-oriented when compared to the base model S22. You can also see that in the rounded edges of the aluminum frame, which give the S23 an elegant profile on all sides.
Overall, the Galaxy S23 is set to be a good-looking device based on the surfaced leaks. Of course, we don’t know what lies under the hood and likely won’t for just a little while longer. The Galaxy S23 is set to launch on February 1, with reservations for the brand-new device open on Samsung’s website.
Samsung Galaxy S23 will launch February 1, reservations open now with up to $100 credit
Samsung has just officially confirmed the launch date of the Galaxy S23, S23, and S23 Ultra for February 1, 2023, with reservations now available to score some extra credit with your purchase.
In its first in-person event since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Samsung will be hosting the first Unpacked event of 2023 in San Francisco. Galaxy Unpacked will take place at 10:00 am PT and will be livestreamed for fans at home to watch.
At the event, we’re expecting to see primarily the Galaxy S23 series, with three models set to arrive topping out with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The updated lineup of flagship phones is expected to be a marginal upgrade over the Galaxy S22 series but with notable additions such as satellite connectivity and a 200MP camera on the Ultra. These will also be Samsung’s latest devices to launch with the best update policy in Android – four years of major updates and five years of security patches.
Samsung’s teaser image, above, also hints at the tweaked design of the triple cameras across all three phones that we’ve seen in leaks and also foreshadowed on the company’s budget-focused Galaxy A14.
It’s not yet confirmed if Samsung plans to bring anything else to Unpacked, but in the past we’ve seen everything from smartwatches and earbuds to laptops and even foldables. On the reservation page for Samsung’s Unpacked event, there’s a teaser for a Galaxy Book device, though.
And, if you’re looking forward to your next smartphone upgrade, there’s some good news. As Samsung has done in the past, reservations are now open to hold your spot in line for a Galaxy S23, S23+, or S23 Ultra.
You can put in a Galaxy S23 reservation through Samsung’s website now at no commitment. Just put in your name and email and you’ll get a $50 credit that can be used with your later pre-order. When you do pre-order, that credit will double to $100 if you also get a Galaxy Book.
Putting in a reservation also gives you the opportunity to lock in the trade-in value of your current device, though Samsung won’t actually show you how much you’ll get at this point in time.
The Galaxy S23 series will be the first major flagship launch of 2023 in the Android space, and it’s certainly going to be interesting to see how Samsung follows up the Galaxy S22 Ultra and standard Galaxy S22 that were loved this time last year.
Of course, stay tuned for our full coverage of Samsung’s launch – and the leaks that will inevitably come between now and then – over the coming weeks.
