Samsung continues to work on its upcoming Galaxy S lineup’s successor, Galaxy S23 series. Like before, the new flagship series will consist of three models: the standard, plus and ultra versions. Recently, we got major news regarding the high-end version (Ultra variant) of Samsung’s upcoming lineup.
This afternoon, the famous blogger @Ice Universe revealed the live image of a battery module. Some numbers are written on the battery, and it is very hard to distinguish whether this battery belongs to which model. However, as the blogger said, this battery belongs to Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra and is a 5000mAh battery, the same battery capacity as in Galaxy S22 Ultra.
It has been observed that Samsung is not making any kind of change in Galaxy S23 Ultra’s battery capacity. In other models, including the standard version, Samsung has increased the battery capacity by 200mAh (i.e., 3900mAh in standard Galaxy S23).
As per previous news, Samsung is unlikely to make any significant change in the body dimensions and display size of its Galaxy S23 lineup. However, we can expect a big improvement in hardware as the entire lineup is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset. The Ultra variant is also rumored to feature a 200MP lens.
In terms of the chipset’s specifications, the new Snapdragon 8 Gen2 will feature an entirely new architecture. It would feature 1x Cortex-X3 core (3.2GHz), 2x Cortex-A715 cores (2.8GHz), 2x Cortex-A710 cores (2.8GHz) and 3x Cortex-A510 cores (2.0GHz). Rumors also state that Samsung might manufacture a limited number of Exynos 2230/2300 5G powered Samsung Galaxy S23 models.
For now, we can expect the new Galaxy S23 series to be launched between the end of December 2022 and January 2023.
