5 ways the S23 Ultra will be different

-

In the coming days, Samsung will introduce its updated Galaxy S23 line of flagship devices. Key features and promotional materials for the Galaxy S23 series have already leaked online, giving us a closer look at the Galaxy S23 Ultra. In this article, we’ll look at four ways the Galaxy S23 Ultra differs from the Galaxy S22 Ultra based on leaks. Let’s take a look at what we know.

Polished design language

The Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra are so close in appearance that most people will have a hard time telling them apart. The new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has the same 6.8-inch display, a similar design with crisp edges, a built-in S Pen, and even the same camera setup with each lens isolated on the back of the device. It will also feature the same IP68 water and dust protection certification and use the same materials, including glass on the front and back and an aluminum frame in the middle.

However, there will be differences, even if they are small. One is the flat sides of the phone, which makes it more iPhone-like and easier to hold. Galaxy S22 Ultra cases will not fit because each individual camera lens will be larger. The larger power and volume buttons, now somewhat lower for better access, are another nice little change. In addition, the phone now comes in a quartet of new colours: Phantom Black, Cotton Flower, Mystic Lilac and Botanic Green.

Updated view

Samsung dominates the display industry, but interestingly other phone manufacturers have already adopted the latest E6 OLED panel, so the Galaxy S23 Ultra will catch up. The company will stick with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1440p and LTPO technology for a variable refresh rate ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz. This new panel will be remarkably bright with a peak brightness of 1,750 nits.

New main camera with a resolution of 200 megapixels

The primary camera has been greatly upgraded this year. Samsung is switching to a 200MP sensor, which is even more impressive, after three generations of phones that used a 108MP sensor. The phone’s primary point of differentiation will be the ability of the new ISOCELL HP2 sensor to capture 12MP, 50MP, and even 200MP images. In addition, the company promises to include improved astrophotography and the placement of the new moon in its marketing materials. Despite this, the company is said to be using the same three sensors seen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, including a 12MP wide-angle lens, a 10MP 3X camera, and a 10MP zoom camera. As a result, there is not much improvement in the camera department overall.

The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor

Samsung had previously used Qualcomm’s Snapdragon and Exynos CPUs in the Galaxy S series. The Galaxy S23 series marks a shift in this. Now globally, Samsung will ship the Galaxy S23 Ultra with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. However, the model inside the Galaxy S23 Ultra differs slightly from the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 we’ve seen previously on other flagship devices.

iQOO 11 specifications

A variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that’s been overclocked specifically for Galaxy devices is inside the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This chip has three energy-efficient A510 cores running at up to 2.0GHz, a midrange A715 core running at 2.8GHz, two A710 cores running at 2.8GHz, and two high-power X3 cores running at up to 3.6GHz.

New 12MP selfie camera

The class-leading selfie experience offered by iPhone eluded Samsung for a long time. By increasing the camera resolution of the Galaxy S22 Ultra to 40MP, the company tried to make things better, but it didn’t work out as planned. With the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung is returning to a smaller 12MP sensor in an effort to improve the selfie experience. It will be interesting to see how the new ISOCELL sensor performs on the upcoming flagship.
