The Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone series is rumored to be officially launched on February 1, 2023. New leaks are coming every week. The latest now reveals the design and color options of the Samsung Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra. Although the leaked promotional material, sourced from an industry insider, doesn’t show the base model, the images do give a closer look at the design and colors of the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra. Just yesterday, however, another report revealed that the base model and the Plus variant will have an identical signature color.
The signature color of the latest Galaxy S series phones change every year, giving users another option away from the standards like black and white. These colors will be the most prominent in all promotional and marketing materials. For 2023 the signature color of the Samsung Galaxy S23+ is pink and for the Galaxy S23 Ultra green.
There are still some question marks over the chipset performance of Samsung’s flagship phones. For the first time this year, Samsung is switching exclusively to Qualcomm’s currently fastest processor, the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Samsung is also using this in a version with an overclocked prime core (3.36 GHz instead of 3.18 GHz), which should further increase performance.
Samsung Galaxy S23 benchmark tests
Geekbench results: Samsung Galaxy S23 vs. Xiaomi 13 and Vivo X90 Pro+
The prime core scores big in the single-core results on Geekbench with test results of well over 1,500 points. The multi-core tests, on the other hand, are disappointing. There is not a single benchmark test with more than 5,000 points in the list. On the right, for comparison, are the results of the Xiaomi 13 and vivo X90 Pro+, which are also powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Here you won’t find a single test below 5,000 multi-core points. On the contrary, the top models from Xiaomi and vivo tend towards 5,200 points.
So far, in addition to the new chipset, there have also been rumors about a completely new 200 megapixel sensor under the main camera. This should also increase 8K video recording from 24 to 30 frames per second.
