Samsung Galaxy Unpacked, the first in-person tech event by Samsung in three years, takes place in San Francisco on February 1 and will unveil the company’s latest flagship smartphone offerings. 

The Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to make its formal debut at the event with speculations that three variations of the model will be offered: a standard version of the S23, a larger “+” version and an “ultra” version that includes a stylus and upgraded camera features.  

Though this is currently based on speculations by fans of the smartphone series, the company also hints at the S23 debut by allowing visitors of the Samsung website to pre-order an unreleased Galaxy smartphone. Customers who pre-order will also get a $50 credit for one device purchased or $100 for two devices. 

Galaxy S23 Expected Features  

The Galaxy S22 series launched last year boasts a sleek design, upgraded performance and an impressive 108-megapixel main sensor for higher-quality pictures and videos. 

The Galaxy S23 series is rumored to follow suit, with the Ultra version having an identical camera lineup at the back and the standard S23 expected to come in the usual colors (black, green, light pink), as well as an additional off-white colorway.  

Aside from these design specs, the S23 series is also rumored to have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, 8 to 12GB of RAM, larger batteries, water resistance, Wi-Fi 6E, Android 13 with One UI 5.1 and an impressive 200-megapixel camera for the Ultra variant.  

It is speculated that they too will include upgraded camera features in-app, such as a sky hyper lapse mode for the Ultra, a Pro Mode for the front camera and a 50-megapixel RAW mode available on all three.  

When it comes to the price point, the S23 series will likely remain consistent with previous pricing, starting at $800 for its standard model, with the S23 Plus and Ultra variations priced at $1000 and $1200 respectively. 

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked will be streamed on the official Samsung YouTube Channel and the company’s official website
