Samsung has scheduled an event for February 1, 2023 when the company is widely expected to introduce its Galaxy S23 series smartphone lineup. But thanks to a series of leaks over the past day or so, you don’t have to wait to see what the new phones look like.

WinFuture kicked things off with some pictures of the Galaxy S23, and Nieuwe Mobiel followed up with Galaxy S23+ pictures. Then Ice Universe offered up some Galaxy S23 Ultra pictures, and Evan Blass capped off the image round of leaks with some family portraits showing the whole series. A few days later some key specs were leaked WinFuture and @BillbilKun.

Honestly, the new phones don’t look all that different than their S22 series counterparts. The Galaxy S23 and S23+ appear to have curved bodies with three cameras each on the back. One subtle design change is that the camera area no longer has any sort of border, with the cameras seeming like they were cut directly out of the main body of the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, meanwhile, looks nearly identical to the S22 Ultra. It has a larger body with a display that wraps around the edges of the phone and a more angular design without the rounded corners. The Galaxy S23 Ultra, like its predecessor, works with a Samsung S-Pen stylus.

While the pictures give us a good idea of what the phones will look like, it’s what’s inside that counts. So here are some leaked specs:

While the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have the best camera system of the bunch for still photography, all three models can capture 8K video at 30 frames per second or 4K video at up to 60 frames per second.

The phones are expected to ship with Android 13 and Samsung’s One UI 5.1 software.

It’s possible that some specs could be different when the phones are officially launched on February 1st, there’s nothing particularly implausible in the leaked spec sheet. And while pricing hasn’t been announced yet, you can already reserve a next-gen Samsung Galaxy phone to receive a $50 credit when it goes on sale.

  1. I hate how annoying these screens are and how it’s nearly impossible to protect them. I bought an S10 for my wife and an S10+ for myself and neither lasted much longer than a year before the screen shattered because of the dumb curves. I’m never buying another phone with a curved screen ever.

    1. I totally agree. The rounded edges benefit nobody, and they just result in poor protection from cases.

      Apple is one of the few manufacturers making phones with a totally flat screen.

      1. A few years ago that was the case, but a quick glance at gmsarena is giving me the impression that a lot of manufacturers are chilling out with that a bit lately, as if they’ve noticed that wasn’t selling well. I think some of them still have somewhat curved edges, but it’s like a 1mm difference in height if that.
