Galaxy S23: Despite the fact that there are many companies competing for the top spot in the smartphone industry, two brands have dominated it.
In a close competition over the past 10 years, Apple and Samsung have contended against one another.
Samsung has always had the benefit of having a large selection of models, while Apple has regularly kept its lineups consistent.
Months after Apple debuted the iPhone 14, Samsung upgraded its top-tier Galaxy series with the S23 line.
The new phones
The Galaxy S23 phones are the most recent addition to enter Samsung’s iconic S-series lineup.
The S-series lineup’s most recent upgrades include the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra.
The top Android developers have made major hardware and software improvements for this year’s edition.
Despite the alterations, the tech titans maintained their approach and made hardly any changes to the devices.
One of the most significant improvements for the S23 phones that will be sold globally is their CPU.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which will be welcomed by European customers, will be found exclusively in each model.
The Qualcomm chipset enables the phones’ faster clock rates than other 8 Gen 2 Chipsets.
The Galaxy S23 phones will also provide a selection of storage configurations.
Another characteristic carried over from past S-series handsets is the fixed 8GB RAM.
By supporting Bluetooth 5.3 and 6Ghz WiFi 6E, the Qualcomm CPU enhances connection.
The camera is one of the top features customers look for in smartphones.
Many Samsung loyalists still prefer the sharpness of the Android device’s cameras, despite the fact that Apple has always been the best in terms of quality.
For the S23 lineup, the cameras were upgraded.
Though less than the Ultras, the Galaxy S23 and S23+ include a number of significant updates.
From the 12MP on the S22 series, the phone’s Camera RAW software has greatly improved.

It now takes pictures with a resolution of 50MP, making the most of the primary camera’s capabilities.
The camera’s 50MP sensor is still there, but the new Qualcomm chipset can take movies at high to 8K quality at 30 frames per second as opposed to last year’s 24 fps.
The 12MP ultra-wide camera and the 3x10MP telephone lenses, meanwhile, are still of the same quality as past models.
Nevertheless, a somewhat better 12MP selfie camera is included on all three Galaxy S23 models.
Now, 60FPS Super HDR is available while shooting videos.
While maintaining the fundamental design philosophy of the S22 series, the S23 series offers better screens.
The phones use flat Dynamic AMOLED 2X panels with an FHD+ resolution.
Furthermore, their refresh rates range from 48 to 120 Hz, and while they are in game mode, a 240 Hz touch sampling rate occurs.
The S23+ screen’s display extends to 6.6 inches, versus the standard Samsung Galaxy S23’s 6.1-inch screen.
Both versions have centered punch holes for the selfie cameras and keep the fingerprint reader underneath the screen.
Samsung has added two new features this year: Vision Booster and Enhanced Comfort.
In order to adjust the colors and contrasts to the lighting conditions, Vision Booster is deployed.
Enhance Comfort treats evenings in the same way, which reduces eye fatigue.
For 2023, Samsung decided to extend the battery life of the S23 phones.
200mAh higher compared to the S22 series, they now have a battery life of 4,700mAh for the S23+ and 3,900mAh for the S23.
The standard model has a wired charging rate of 25W and can reach 50% in 30 minutes.
In comparison, the S23+ receives a stronger charge of 45W, reaching 65% in 30 minutes.
Both versions still support wireless charging and power sharing.
The newest Samsung Galaxy S-series models, the S23 and S23+, copied the Ultra’s design philosophy by taking off the Contour Cut camera housing to show the three camera lenses.
They also have an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
The S23 phones are also the first ones on the market to employ the more resistant Gorilla Glass Victus 2.
Additionally manufactured from recyclable materials, the phone packaging.
The S23 phones come in four different color options: Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black.
