A few days ago, Samsung accidentally confirmed February 1st for the Galaxy Unpacked event. The event sets the stage for the world premiere of the Galaxy S23 series. Now Samsung’s Chinese department seems to have lost a few teaser videos for the new flagships. And they ended up on Twitter in no time.
In addition to the picture with the official event invitation, the three camera lenses are also the most important element in these videos. According to tipster Ice Universe, there is not only new camera hardware but also better image processing software. Above all, Samsung wants to improve the Galaxy S23 camera performance in low light and at night. Accordingly, the first teaser video also speaks of “breathtaking night photos”. And yes, the three O’s are camera lenses.

The second video promises “megapixels that will make you say wooow”. Here, too, the camera lenses are lined up neatly on top of each other. However, it could be more of a teaser for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Ultra is expected to get a 200-megapixel main camera. Besides the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, this is the biggest update in Samsung’s new top model.
As great as the new main camera is going to be, it probably tied up some resources in the development of the Galaxy S23 Ultra at the same time. Therefore, according to previous rumors, it was no longer possible to also upgrade the periscope zoom camera. This upgrade will have to wait until the Galaxy S24 Ultra. In addition, the 40 megapixel selfie camera should retire – apparently the new flagship will only have a 12 megapixel sensor. At least the new main camera and chipset will be able to handle 8K videos at 30fps. Previous Galaxy S models were limited to 24fps.
