Unless you’re the world’s most dedicated Samsung fan or continue to use, say, an old Galaxy S9 who’s dead set on upgrading to a new flagship next spring no matter what, odds are the latest rumors about Galaxy S23 Family it left you feeling pretty underwhelmed (at best).
There are now multiple stories and reliable sources pointing to a completely unchanged design
for vanilla S23 and S23+ (at least
) compared to their respective predecessors, but you may not have realized until today that the lack of external mods could be a good thing.
Beautiful on the outside, powerful on the inside
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in an age of (too) similar high-end smartphones, the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra feel objectively familiar and special enough to make a visual impression on ( almost) anyone.
Not too heavy and certainly not too thick, the 6.6-inch metal and glass S22 plus
For example, it also manages to pack a reasonably strong 4,500mAh battery, which (almost) perfectly blends beauty and power. Of course, there’s always room for improvement in the battery life department, especially when it comes to Android flagships, and that’s precisely what Samsung
It is expected to do so with the Galaxy S23 Plus.
The S23+ could look a lot like the S22+ (pictured here), at least on the surface.
Yes Elec insider information
accurate test, which has happened many times in the past for many unreleased Galaxy devices, the S23+ will improve the aforementioned cell capacity of its 2022 predecessor by around 5 percent.
That might not sound like much, but it would be quite an impressive feat on Samsung’s part if a 4,700mAh battery were squeezed into an unchanged oversized body from a high-end Galaxy. The current plan is definitely (more or less) to retain the 7.6mm thickness and 195g weight of the S22+, mind you, something that could supposedly be achieved with the help of so-called “stacking” technology.
The battery’s internal material would be stacked “layer by layer like a ladder” to ensure it doesn’t take up too much space inside the Galaxy S23+, allowing the phone to remain relatively slim. That sounds like a lot of engineering work for a 5 percent increase in battery capacity, but if the end result is just an hour or two of extra life between real-world charges, we’re pretty sure a lot of users will appreciate it. the seemingly modest update.
No news on the S23 and S23 Ultra fronts… yet
While this latest Elec report (translated here
) doesn’t explain things for us, its timing definitely suggests that the 4,700 mAh information is somehow connected to the recent battery certification
that left the capacity number up in the air. Although no similar documents have been discovered for the other two members of the next Galaxy S23
family to date, those should be coming pretty soon too.
Until then, we probably won’t know if the “regular” Galaxy S23
The models have similar battery size upgrades in the works compared to the S22 and S22 Ultra. But that won’t stop us from speculating that Samsung is planning to improve this area across the line.
The S22 Ultra packs a massive 5,000mAh battery.
After all, the Galaxy S22+
it scored the highest in battery life tests in our detailed reviews of all three S22-series devices, so it wouldn’t make much sense to upgrade the S23+ and not also upgrade the S23 and S23 Ultra in this ever-important Department.
If we were to venture a couple of (semi-educated) guesses, we’d expect the base version of the Galaxy S23 to pack at least a 3,800mAh battery, while the S23 Ultra could probably go up to around 5,300mAh of juice. . If we also add the widely speculated improvements in energy efficiency
from Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor
Adding to the equation, you can expect the entire S23 family to absolutely crush its predecessor in our battery endurance tests next year.
