Despite it being reasonable to say that Samsung played things safe this year, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has finally arrived.
Galaxy S23 Ultra Technical Specifications
The Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts improved performance over the original model thanks to its usage of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, a Samsung-exclusive variation. Along with this, there is up to 1TB of storage and 8 or 12 gigabytes of RAM. Like the phone’s predecessor, it also features a S Pen casing.
A 6.8-inch Infinity-O LTPO AMOLED display with a 3,088 x 1,440 resolution, HDR10+, Gorilla Glass Victus 2, and a customizable refresh rate of 1-120Hz is available on the phone. Of course, there is also an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the screen. The screen’s amazing peak brightness is 1,750 nits, and that’s all.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra is a large phone that weighs 234g and has dimensions of 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.9mm. However, don’t panic; the design makes it simple to carry the phone in one hand, and there will also be some top-notch covers available. We are unsure whether the covers will work since they are somewhat smaller than those of the Galaxy S22 Ultra (163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm), but we will keep you informed anyway.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy is specifically designed for Samsung smartphones for individuals who want the maximum amount of performance. Real-time raytracing is also available, as anticipated, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra has vapour chamber cooling to keep it cool during prolonged gaming sessions.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra has a quad-camera configuration on the back, including a 200-megapixel main camera that has an f/1.7 aperture, a 23mm focal length, and optical image stabilization. The 12-megapixel ultra-wide still has an f/2.2 aperture, a 13mm focal length, and a 12-degree field of view. A pair of 10-megapixel telephoto cameras with 10x and 3x optical zoom are also available. Instead of the 40-megapixel camera seen on the predecessor, Samsung opted for a normal 12-megapixel camera on the front. The cameras will be equipped with features including Single Take, AR Doodle, Panorama, and up to 8K video recording.
A robust 5,000 mAh battery that can be charged at 45W with a cable charger powers the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging are further options. With four years of significant OS upgrades planned, the phone will run One UI 5.1, which is based on Android 13.
In terms of price and availability, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is now available for pre-order anywhere in the world and will begin arriving on February 17th, later this month, much like its smaller siblings. The price of the phone is $1,199. As usual, Samsung will provide different pre-order bonuses according to the area. Last but not least, the phone comes in Phantom Black, Green, Cream, and Lavender.
