Announcing the Tizen Studio 3.0 Release
Like the Galaxy S22 series, the Galaxy S23 flagship family will deliver three devices featuring two distinct designs. The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will pack the “traditional” smartphone design, while the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a built-in S Pen stylus. The Ultra will be the most expensive new Galaxy S phone and the Note successor that fans want to buy this year. And it so happens that the Galaxy S23 Ultra specs leaked in full ahead of the launch event.
Buyers can already decide whether the Ultra is worth the extra cash or whether the base Galaxy S23 is a good enough upgrade.
As usual with new Galaxy S launches, it’s WinFuture with the big Galaxy S23 Ultra specs list. The German-language blog also shared the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus specs. The information is likely accurate, as these leaks drop religiously every year ahead of Samsung’s new Galaxy S press event.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the largest of the three flagships. And it won’t feature the same design as the cheaper phones. The handset has an all-screen display that’s slightly curved around the edges. That’s a byproduct of Samsung’s desire to keep the Note experience alive. The built-in S Pen stylus demands that the bottom edge is flat rather than curved at the corners. That means the top edge is also flat, and the side edges are curved.
Except for the Note design and features, the Galaxy S23 Ultra should feature the same base specs as the cheaper models. The camera setup will be much better, thanks to the inclusion of Samsung’s new 200-megapixel sensor and the periscope telephoto lens.

The custom Galaxy Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that already leaked powers all three Galaxy S23 phones, including the Ultra. Like the cheaper phones, the new Note gets two big specs upgrades. We’re looking at LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage that deliver big speed improvements over the previous standards.
Specifically, the Galaxy S23 Ultra specs leak says the phone ships with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM. Storage starts at 256GB and goes up to 1TB. The cheapest Ultra will likely come in an 8GB/256GB combination. The 12GB RAM models will probably feature more storage.
The specs leak also details the big camera upgrade the Galaxy S23 Ultra gets this year. That’s the Isocell HP2 camera sensor that Samsung just announced. We’re looking at a 200-megapixel sensor (85°, f/1.7, 23mm, OIS) that should improve low-light photography and video recording.
The Ultra also features a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens (120°, f/2.2, 13mm), 10-megapixel telephoto lens (36°, f/2.4, 69mm, OIS), and 10-megapixel telephoto lens (11°, f/4.9, 230mm, OIS, 10x optical zoom, 100x space zoom).
On the front, expect a 12-megapixel shooter (80°, f/2.2, 25mm, HDR10+).

The Galaxy S23 Ultra leak also mentions the battery specs. We’re looking at a 5,000 mAh battery pack that supports 45W fast charging and 10W wireless charging.
According to the leak, the handset should be available in black, cream, green, and purple. And if a recent report is accurate, the Galaxy S23 Ultra price will remain unchanged in the US. That means the handset will start at $1,199 in the States. WinFuture doesn’t mention prices for Germany or the EU, but rumors suggest Samsung might raise prices in international markets.

The only thing Samsung can do to fight the iPhone 14 Pro right now is run ridiculous ads that mock Apple. And Samsung is lucky the recent lockdowns in China significantly impacted the production of Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. Samsung’s best bet for competing against the iPhone 14 series isn’t the Galaxy S22 or the latest foldable phones. It’s the Galaxy S23 series coming early next year. But now, a leaker claims the Galaxy S23 release date hasn’t yet been decided because Samsung can’t figure out how to price the new flagships.
Recent reports claimed that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S23 at some point in early February. That’s a somewhat regular schedule for the Galaxy S series. The phone should then hit stores shortly after preorders begin.
But we have no official dates from Samsung, and there’s no reason for the Korean vendor to hurry. There’s plenty of time to announce the Galaxy S23 launch event and actually host one in person.
A leaker now says on Twitter that Samsung might delay the release. The reason for the change is said to be the Galaxy S23 price. Samsung reportedly hasn’t decided what to charge for the three Galaxy S23 models.
Getting the price right is a key factor for the Galaxy S23’s success, as previous models have shown. It’s easy to speculate that Samsung will keep the Galaxy S22 price structure in place. But the current economy might force Samsung to increase the phone’s price in some markets.
Apple kept the iPhone 13 price tiers in place for the iPhone 14, which was an incredible feat. But it did so only in the US. Apple raised iPhone prices in other markets as the dollar has been much stronger than other currencies.
Galaxy S23 price speculation aside, rumors say that Samsung wants to spare no expense with the 2023 flagships. The Galaxy S22 performance scandal forced Samsung to defend against claims that its cost-cutting policies hurt the phone’s ability to deliver sustained performance.

Image source: @OnLeaks/Smartprix Assuming that Samsung is indeed sparing no expense to make the Galaxy S23 phones, we can expect higher manufacturing costs for the three flagships. Especially considering that all three devices will feature only Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship processor. There will not be an Exynos 2300 next year to slow down the Galaxy S23.
With about two months until the Galaxy S23 launch, there’s plenty of time for the price and release date to leak. It’s a dance we’re all familiar with. These key details leak ahead of each Samsung flagship launch.

Need to make a repair on your Samsung phone? The company might soon have an app for that.
As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has made a trademark filing for a new app that has sparked rumors the company could take on repair companies like iFixit for its own devices. The trademark filing, among other things, makes mentioned of a new “Self Repair Assistant” app.
If the company releases such an app, it could help the company expand its self-repair program which, despite being launched over the summer of 2022, has also added a few devices to the program to enable consumers to repair certain aspects of their devices.
Samsung is the second major phone company to launch a self-repair program to bring such concepts in-house. Apple has already launched its own self-repair program and continues to add devices that customers can purchase parts and tools for in order to make their own repairs as opposed to taking it to an Apple Store or third-party retailer.
If it does launch such an app, it could enable the company to support more devices for self-repair more quickly. It also poses a threat to third-party repair companies like iFixit, whose business is based on helping customers repair their devices themselves. With a Self Repair Assistant app, Samsung could be looking to get into that business.

After the Galaxy S22 series’ semi-disastrous launch, Samsung probably can’t wait to unveil its next flagship phones. These will be foldable devices, however. They’re the successors of last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3. The Fold 4 and Flip 4 have appeared in several leaks already, and we know what to expect from the handsets’ designs and specs sheets. And a leaker just revealed the purported launch, preorder, and release dates for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.
The Fold 4 and Flip 4 will look like their predecessors, but fans of foldable handsets can expect several significant design changes.
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 design is the more exciting of the two devices. The phone will be shorter and wider than the Fold 3. It’ll still have a massive internal foldable display. But it should be more comfortable to use the handset when folded because the external display will have a better aspect ratio.
The Fold 4 is also going to be lighter and thinner than its predecessor. Samsung will supposedly use a new hinge mechanism to reduce the phone’s weight.
The same leaker who provided most of the aforementioned Galaxy Z Fold 4 details also listed the handset’s main specs. The main takeaway is that the Fold 4 will feature a brand new chip, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 that Qualcomm just unveiled.
This implies that all the Fold 4 models will pack the same System-on-Chip (SoC), which is good news for fans. Poor Exynos 2200 performance hurt the Galaxy S22 this year, and many people think Samsung should drop its latest SoC as soon as possible.
Ice Universe has provided plenty of tidbits about the Fold 4 and Flip 4 in the past. But he never revealed the launch and release date details for the two Galaxy Z phones.
Thankfully, we now have that information from a different prominent leaker, YouTuber Jon Prosser.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 release date
The YouTuber took to Twitter to discuss several unreleased Samsung products, including the new foldables. Prosser revealed launch, preorder, and release dates in a series of tweets. He mentioned the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, a Lavander version of the Galaxy S22, as well as upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro wearables.
If Prosser’s sources are correct, Samsung will hold its Galaxy Z Fold 4 launch event on August 10th. That’s when the company should unveil the Flip 4 and its new 2022 wearable generation. Preorders for all these products should start on the same day.
Then, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the rest of these new devices will apparently get the same release date: August 26th.
The leaker said that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will come in Phantom Black, Green, and Beige. The Flip 4 will be available in colorway options at launch, including Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Blue.
The Galaxy Watch 5 will come in 40mm and 44mm sizes, which sound familiar. Both models are said to be available in Phantom Black or Silver. The smaller model will get a Pink option, while the 44mm will get a Sapphire (blueish) colorway. The Watch 5 Pro will also reportedly come in Phantom Black and Silver, but it’ll be slightly larger at 46mm.
Prosser did not provide pricing information for any of these devices, but at least we have an apparent release date. However, considering that Samsung went out of its way to make last year’s foldables more affordable, we’d expect a similar strategy for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.
The prices should leak as we get closer to the launch event.
