Samsung’s Galaxy S23 launch event is coming on February 1st, but we don’t have to wait to see the Ultra flagship in a hands-on video. If the huge number of Galaxy S23 leaks wasn’t enough to help you decide whether or not to purchase one of the three S23 variants, we now have purported videos out in the wild of the most expensive option.
Apparently, stores are already getting their Galaxy S23 supply in ahead of the February 1st launch event. Preorders will follow right after the press conference, and we expect the three Galaxy S23 handsets to hit stores a couple of weeks later.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra hands-on videos below reportedly come from Nicaragua, where some stores shared Galaxy S23 content online well ahead of the phone’s launch:
One of the clips shows the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s full design. The new Note successor matches previous leaks, not that we expected surprises. We have a large display with curved bezels and flat top and bottom sides. On the back, there’s a massive camera with no fewer than four distinct lenses, including the brand-new 200-megapixel shooter.
This isn’t a dummy unit, either. The Galaxy S23 Ultra in these clips appears to be a retail version. The person who posted the clips also shared a test of the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s zoom camera in action.
Moreover, other images seem to confirm some of the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera’s specs and features. The handset features a 200-megapixel sensor, according to the camera interface. That must be the new Isocell HP2 camera that Samsung just announced. And the camera supports 8K video recording at 30fps.
Separately, the Nicaraguan retail store that posted the hands-on videos also shared photos showing the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra. As you can see, the images confirm some of the colors Samsung will offer Galaxy S23 buyers at launch. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will get Green, Cream, Phantom Black, and Lavender options if this leak is accurate.
Finally, Evan Blass posted online posters for the Galaxy S23 preorder event that seemingly corroborated the leaks from Nicaragua.
The retail store didn’t leak the local pricing details for the Galaxy S23 series. Word on the street is that Samsung will keep Galaxy S22 prices in place in the US, while international buyers will see price hikes for all three Galaxy S23 models.

As leaks continue unabated, Samsung confirmed this week that its next Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on February 1 at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. Samsung will host the in-person event in San Francisco, where we will see the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, Galaxy S23 Ultra, and the new pair of Galaxy Buds. You can watch the Unpacked event live on YouTube or on Samsung’s website to get a first glimpse of the Galaxy S23.
Countless leaks have already spoiled most of the new features coming to the Galaxy S23, as well as the design, which Samsung is obviously teasing on its invite. The three spotlights represent the triple rear camera array, which will be the focus of this generation.
Unlike the previous generation, all three models should feature the embedded rear camera design that was exclusive to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. It’s a much cleaner look, and it’s clear that Samsung heard the feedback from its fans loud and clear last year.
Samsung’s reservation page for the Galaxy S23 is already live as well. If you reserve the Galaxy S23 today, you can get up to $100 in Samsung Credit. If you check out that page, you can watch a video highlighting one of the phone’s new camera features.
Galaxy S23 specs and features leaked
According to recent leaks, the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will feature 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. All three should also use faster DDR5X RAM instead of DDR5.
As for the colorways, display analyst Ross Young claims the Galaxy S23 will come in Beige, Black, Green, and Light Pink. There will also be Gray, Light Blue, Light Green, and Red options for the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
