Galaxy Unpacked, the annual event where Samsung unveils its latest slate of smartphones, formally introduced its Galaxy S23 series in San Francisco last February 1.
The rumors were true. The tech giant released three different iterations of the Galaxy S23, starting with the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
The premium phone boasts an updated formfactor, vertically aligned rear camera lenses and a 200-megapixel main camera sensor – features that were demonstrated via a short film made entirely using the Galaxy S23 Ultra and captured by the award-winning director Ridley Scott.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra is priced at $1,199.99 - much like its predecessor the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but with double the storage (256GB).
The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus have also been upgraded with the floating camera design of the Ultra, a 5000 mAh battery and a new 8-core CPU, yet has maintained the prices from last year – features that were previously predicted by the community.
Aside from its smartphone lineup, Samsung also unveiled its new slate of laptops in the live event. The company started with the Galaxy Book3 Ultra, boasting a 16-inch 120Hz OLED screen, an H-Series Core i7 or Core i9 and an RTX 4050 or 4070 GPU. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Book3 has been updated with a new Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display that comes with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 graphics processing unit (GPU).
