After the release of Samsung’s latest foldable devices, it is about time for the Galaxy S23 series. The Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus have received a 3C certification revealing their 25W fast charging support. Here, we will take a peek at the rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S23 series.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Series Rumors:
As per the 3C listing, both the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will be compatible with the same EP-TA800 charger. The vanilla Galaxy S23 has the model number SM-S9110, while the Plus model’s model number is SM-S9160.
Both the phones are Chinese variants and we can expect the international variants to pack higher charging speeds. Previously, the Galaxy S23 Ultra also made its way into the list with 25W charging.
As per new leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S23/S23+ will get an S22 Ultra-like redesign. Unofficial renders from OnLeaks give us a look at the upcoming phones with discrete camera bumps for each camera lens. If the renders are accurate, we will not be seeing the iconic Contour Cut camera design we saw on the Galaxy S21 and S22 phones.
It looks like Samsung is keeping the center punch hole but some rumors hint toward thicker bezels. On the contrary, the 6.1″ screen on the S22 and the 6.5″ one on the S23 Plus will be making their way onto their successors.
OnLeaks also brought us the dimensions for the Galaxy S23 and the S23 Plus which measure 146.3 x 70.8 x 7.6 mm and 157.7 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm, respectively. Hence, the next-gen phones will have slightly skinnier sides.
