Samsung first subsumed the flagship Note-series phablets into its flagship S-series smartphones last year with the S22 series.

The S23 series is a continuation – offering the strong photographic chops of the S-series and the productivity afforded by the S Pen (S Pen only available in the Ultra model), in conjunction with the top-notch hardware and performance of both the flagship series.

Highlights of the S23 series include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, and “Nightography” videos with AI,

More details below about the Samsung Galaxy S23 series from the press release.

Galaxy S23 Ultra makes it easier for any level of photographer to capture phenomenal content.

It offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, tailored for nearly any lighting conditions and engineered to render incredible detail.

Improved Nightography capabilities transform how the Galaxy S series optimises photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions.

“The value of impactful technology is measured, not just by what it enables for people today, but also how it contributes to a better future. We’re redefining peak performance with the Galaxy S23 Series to bring users a trustworthy standard for a premium smartphone experience by merging power and lasting innovation in devices that have lesser environmental impact. We are thrilled and honoured to be bringing the full Galaxy Unpacked experience with the launch of the Galaxy Experience Space in Singapore. Consumers and Galaxy fans can look forward to discovering the next level of nightography and mobile gaming with the Galaxy S23 Series, while creating and capturing moments in the interactive pop-up against the iconic Gardens by the Bay backdrop”, said Ronnie Ng, Vice President of Mobile Experience, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

Filming a favourite song at a concert, snapping a selfie at the aquarium, or grabbing a group shot of friends at dinner — users can get sharper images and videos.

Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and colour tone.

In a Samsung Galaxy first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision.

It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.

And because selfie cameras are more important than ever to how we communicate today, the Galaxy S23 series introduces fast autofocus and our first Super HDR selfie camera, jumping from 30fps to 60fps, for noticeably better front-facing images and videos.

For users who want the ultimate creative control and customization, the Galaxy S23 series offers a suite of tools that differentiate any photography experience.

The Expert RAW app, available exclusively on Samsung Galaxy, enables DSLR-style image shooting and editing in RAW and JPEG — no bulky camera equipment is required.

Users can experiment with Multiple exposures photo art or capture a clear view of the Milky Way with Astrophoto settings, and now, after being downloaded on Galaxy S23, Expert RAW features can be accessed within Samsung’s native Camera app.

Meanwhile, the new zoom capabilities on Galaxy Watch5 series’ Camera Controller app empower users to capture a perfectly framed shot right from their wrist.

Additional camera advancements include:

  • Low-light or in situations that would normally create a blur, videos are stable with doubled optical image stabilizer (OIS) angles in all directions on Galaxy S23 Ultra.
  • Recording videos feel more cinematic with enhanced 8K video at 30 frames per second with a wider angle.
  • Advanced, object-based AI analyses each detail in the frame, even down to minute facial features, such as hair and eyes, to carefully reflect a person’s dynamic characteristics.
  • For an even more enhanced video experience, the new 360 Audio Recording feature on Galaxy Buds2 Pro creates multi-dimensional sound.

On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the iconic Samsung Galaxy camera also gets an upgraded look.

The contour housing has been removed, marking a new era of essential Galaxy design that makes the entire series stand out.

Premium Performance Makes Way for the Future of Mobile Gaming

For creators and gamers alike, the desire to push limits and constantly reimagine what’s possible requires technology that outpaces expectations.

Together, Samsung and Qualcomm optimised the Samsung Galaxy experience with the brand-new Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, the most and efficient platform ever in a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the fastest Snapdragon available today.

Meanwhile, on the device’s size.

A newly designed CPU micro architecture boosts the processing abilities of the Galaxy S23 series by about 30 percent compared to the Galaxy S22 series.

Capturing stunning photos in low light requires trillions of calculations per second, so Samsung Galaxy’s highly efficient NPU architecture has been optimised by 49 percent to balance performance and power while using an AI algorithm to help users take epic photos and Videos.

One of the most significant improvements to the Galaxy S23 series is the optimised GPU, which is approximately 41 percent faster compared to Galaxy 22 series and designed especially for power users.

In anticipation of the future of ultimate digital realism, Galaxy S23 Ultra comes ready to support real-time ray tracing as it comes to the mobile gaming mainstream.

Users will be able to see noticeably more lifelike renderings of scenes, thanks to technology that simulates and tracks every ray of light.

Plus, Samsung Galaxy’s vapor cooling chamber, now bigger and on every Galaxy S23 series keeps your gaming marathon going.

All this power underpins Galaxy S23 Ultra’s expansive 6.8-inch edge display with a reduced curvature to create a larger and flatter surface area for the best visual experience on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy’s unique Enhanced comfort feature allows users to adjust colour tones and contrast levels, lessening eye strain from screen time at night.

Vision booster now adjusts at three levels of lighting instead of two to combat brightness and glare in daylight.

Designed with the Plant in Mind

The Galaxy S23 series raises the bar for premium technology that can enrich people’s lives and help contribute to a healthier planet.

Since the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung Galaxy increases its use of recycled materials from six internal components in Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal and external components in Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Galaxy S23 series also has a wider variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphone, including preconsumer recycled aluminium and glass and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, PET bottles and water barrels.

The new S series is the first to feature Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, offering durability for long-term use and consisting of an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content.

Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone comes in a redesigned packaging box which applied paper made with 100 percent recycled paper.

With the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung Galaxy is doing more to minimise its impact on the environment without compromising quality and aesthetic.

The Galaxy S23 series is UL ECOLOGO® certified, meaning that the product has been certified for reduced environmental impact.

All three models of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series come in four colours – Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender.

For users who want to extend the life of their device, the Galaxy S23 series’ premium experience can be sustained through the years with four generations of OS upgrades and five years of security updates.

To enhance its longevity, users can also leverage programmes such as Samsung Care+19, a support service for accidental damages, repairs and more.

User-Friendly Security and Privacy Enable a Transparent Experience without Compromise

Secure and private experiences are the foundation of the Galaxy S23 series.

Every smartphone comes with Samsung’s end-to-end Samsung Knox protection, which has received more government and industry certifications than any other mobile device, platform or solution on the market.

The Security and Privacy Dashboard on Samsung Galaxy gives users full visibility over who has access to their data and how it’s being used.

With just a glance, it’s easy to see if personal data is at risk and receive simple prompts to change settings for a more secure experience.

Users can also decide exactly which applications and programs get access to their data and how it can be used.

For an added layer of security, Knox Vault, which was first introduced on the Galaxy S21 series, protects critical information on the Galaxy S23 series by isolating it from the rest of the device, including the OS, for added protection against vulnerabilities.

More Freedom and Flexibility for Connected Lifestyles

At the core of the Samsung Galaxy S series’ premium experience is the uncompromising innovation of Samsung Galaxy Ultra.

But the power and creative capabilities of Samsung Galaxy Ultra don’t stop at smartphones. With the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, users can now enjoy an ultimate Samsung Galaxy’s ecosystem.

Across every Galaxy S series model, connected experiences get added benefits.

Samsung Multi Control, which connects mouse and keyboard functionality between a Samsung Galaxy PC and tablet, now extends to Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 for the ultimate flexibility between devices.

Plus, enhanced text usability makes it easy to copy and paste text, like URLs, from one device to another to pick up an activity on another device.

On Galaxy S23 Ultra, Google Meet paired with Samsung Notes and the embedded S Pen now make video calls even more collaborative.

With Google Meet live sharing, participants can simultaneously co-edit a document from each of their Android devices, rather than viewing a shared screen.
