Samsung will officially unveil its next-generation flagship Galaxy S23 series on February 1. The announcement also marks the first time in three years Samsung will hold an in-person event in San Francisco.
As per the rumour mill, the Galaxy S23 series will allegedly utilise an overclocked version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC that will supposedly result in a healthy performance boost. Extra power is to be expected, though the Korean giant seems to be focussing its efforts toward the camera department, quite evident in the teaser.
The invitation trailer, however short and sweet, cleverly pays homage to the ’20th Century Fox’ intro and depicts three spotlights aligning in a vertical position before unveiling a Galaxy logo, thereafter revealing the official release date. Eagle-eyed viewers would likely note the eery similarities between the spot light alignment and previous leaked renders and images of the Galaxy S23. Nice.
Moving on, whispered tones within the industry also suggest that the Galaxy S23 Ultra variant could come kitted with a 200MP main camera sensor, a first for Samsung, not forgetting to mention overall improvements to low light capabilities and camera software features.
Aside from that, there’s not a whole lot to go on in terms of specs or any other additional information, though a calculated guess based on events past leads us to expect a more mature version of Samsung’s One UI, and a plethora of additional accessories are likely to be unveiled at the event. Rumour has it the S23 display won’t see any major upgrades and could in fact be identical to last year’s model.
For those interested, the event will be available to stream February 1, from 6PM GMT on the official YouTube Channel. Those confident in the Samsung’s capabilities can also pre-register today and receive up to £100 off their next Galaxy purchase.
