Galaxy S23 Ultra: design, processor, photo, here is everything that will change

As you can imagine: Samsung is preparing for the start of 2023, or even the end of 2022, the launch of its new high-end smartphones: the Galaxy S23. So far, the rumors count three: the standard S23, the S23+ and the S23 Ultra. They will simply replace the S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra released at the start of the year. The positioning of each model should not change. This means that the changes will be more of a detail than a real revolution.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra, the most successful and the most expensive of the siblings, will benefit from some new features. We have relayed several rumors in our columns, in particular about the SoC that Samsung will install at its heart. Indeed, the Korean firm has decided to abandon the use of Exynos in its high-end terminals. All Galaxy S23 would therefore be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the formalization of which is expected in the coming weeks.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will get a new design and an additional photo mode

In recent days, two indiscretions from the Twitter account of the very prolific leaker Ice Universe reconfirm that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will benefit from a new design and a new photo mode. The first leak therefore concerns the ergonomics of the smartphone: according to the leaker, the edges would be less rounded than those of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Specifically, the curvature between a face and an edge would be tighter, almost like a 2.5D screen. A previous leak claimed the same thing, so this is a confirmation.

The other leak concerns the photo. Remember that the Galaxy S23 Ultra should carry a 200 megapixel sensor, the ISOCELL HP2 developed at Samsung. This is a smaller variant of ISOCELL HP1 which you find in the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and the Xiaomi 12T Pro. Since this sensor is smaller, it will have to use the Quad Bayer technique, combining four adjacent pixels to form a larger one.

Ice Universe confirms this by explaining that it will be possible to capture 4:3 images in 200 megapixels, but also in 50 megapixels. This sensor should also be able to capture photos in 12.5 megapixels, combining 16 adjacent pixels. The 50 megapixel definition will therefore be a happy medium between the sharpness of 200 megapixels and the brightness of 12.5 megapixels. Recall that an Ultra Stable mode is also expected in the S23 Ultra.
