Several Samsung Galaxy S23 models were spotted at the FCC a few weeks ago, now the Galaxy S23 Ultra has appeared on TENAA. Quite complete technical data for the next Samsung flagship have come to light. The smartphone measures 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.9 mm and weighs 233 g. As expected, it has the same dimensions as its predecessor, the S22 Ultra. The display also has the same dimensions – it’s 6.8 inches and has a resolution of 1,440 x 3,088 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19.3:9. The battery has a nominal capacity of 4,855 mAh, so the typical capacity should be 5,000 mAh as usual.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: specifications according to TENAA
TENAA lists three clusters in terms of CPU frequencies: 3.36 GHz, 2.8 GHz and 2.0 GHz. That matches the higher clock speeds of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SM8550-AC, which should power the Galaxy S23 series worldwide. Samsung could also use an overclocked GPU, but TENAA doesn’t mention that in the specs. The chipset comes with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 256, 512 GB or 1 TB of storage. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also had a base 8/128GB version, although that may not come to China.

There is also no evidence for the alleged support for satellite communication, at least for the Chinese model. However, the feature is also deactivated on the Chinese Apple iPhone 14. The Galaxy S23 series allegedly uses the Iridium satellite network, which, unlike the Apple system, should be freely available. According to rumors, the function on Apple cell phones can even send pictures.
The cameras are also not listed. The Ultra should get a new 200 megapixel sensor with 1/1.3 inch, 0.6 µm pixels and a standard resolution of 12 megapixels. The 3x and 10x teles should feature similar hardware but better software. The main camera will also reportedly finally make the leap to 8K 30fps videos. The Samsung Unpacked event takes place in the first week of February. According to the information so far, the start should take place a few weeks later at the end of February.
