Unofficial renders of Samsung’s next flagship smartphones suggest it’s about to eliminate the camera bumps on this year’s Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus. Instead, renders are published by OnLeaks via Figure and SmartPrix claim that the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus simply have three protruding camera lenses, with no raised section in between. It’s a design similar to this year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra, albeit with one less camera sensor.
Elsewhere, rumors about the specs of both the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus are broadly similar to this year’s phones. The S23 is expected to have a 6.1-inch display, while the S23 Plus could have a larger 6.6-inch display. Both are expected to have three cameras again, although the exact camera specs are unclear. In the US, both will almost certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s 2023 flagship processor, likely the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
While the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus are going to be iterative upgrades compared to this year’s models, the same can’t be said for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which reportedly uses a much higher resolution camera sensor than the S22 Ultra. An August report suggests it will be equipped with Samsung’s new 200-megapixel sensor, which should result in more detailed shots compared to the 108-megapixel component in the S22 Ultra.
There’s no word on pricing or release dates, but Samsung tends to announce its latest flagship handsets early in the year. The S22 series was announced in February, while the S21 was announced in January 2021. That means the Galaxy S23 lineup is probably still a few months away, with plenty of time to leak more details.
