Highlight of Galaxy Unpacked 2023: Hands-on With Galaxy S23 Series
In the lead-up to Galaxy Unpacked 2023, adverts across billboards, broadcast and online platforms had one common thread – three camera lenses that were cleverly infused into words like ‘soon’, ‘wow’, and ‘moon’ as teasers to what was coming up. The three camera lenses represented the actual lenses of the new and improved camera on the Galaxy S23 series. The rear camera design with linear lenses can be found on the new Galaxy S23 series, including S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra.
The S23 (6.1”) and S23+ (6.6”) feature a premium flat design with a simple and refined look. The S23 Ultra (6.8”) has a sturdy and sophisticated edge design as a flagship model, complete with a built-in S Pen.
Available in four colours — Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender — the Galaxy S23 series boasts a sleek and sturdy design with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, protecting the device from scratches and falls.
Camera: Ultra High Resolution With 200MP, Enhanced Nightography and More
Premium is the perfect way to summarise the experience offered by cameras in the new Galaxy S23 series. The Galaxy S23 series comes equipped with a 10MP Telephoto Camera and the 12MP Ultra-Wide Camera – so every shot comes out picture-perfect. Meanwhile, the Wide Cameras on S23 and S23+ have 50MP, while the S23 Ultra offers a 200MP ultra-high resolution. You can take a clear picture using the Wide Camera with sharp lines and vivid colours, even when tightly zooming in. Also, an improved 12MP front camera for all three models enables users to enjoy a bright and clear selfie experience.
The Galaxy Experience Space also encouraged visitors to try the enhanced Nightography on Galaxy S23 series cameras. All front and back cameras have been improved and optimised for taking pictures in darkness, including enhanced night selfies and portraits. So even in low light, users can always look camera-ready.
Level Up Your Mobile Gaming
Gaming isn’t just for PC or console users – anyone can enjoy quality gaming on the Galaxy S23 series. Mobile gaming is now more popular than ever, so having a smooth, stable, high-definition gaming experience is essential to smartphones.
When a player is in the middle of the game, even a slight delay can cause critical issues. For instance, racing games require fast-loading screens, so any distraction can get even the most experienced players off track. However, a racing game on Galaxy S23 Ultra provides not only full immersion but also no disruptions. With a display that supports a super smooth 120Hz refresh rate, coupled with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, gamers can expect smoother graphics, faster response speeds and a seamless gaming experience.
Designed With the Planet in Mind
At first glance, it isn’t easy to see how and where the Galaxy S23 series incorporates eco-conscious materials. However, the Galaxy S23 series was made with more recycled materials than ever, furthering Samsung’s inspiring vision for sustainability.
The latest Galaxy S23 series is made from recycled aluminium, glass and PET, in addition to repurposed ocean-bound plastic. What’s more, with a 100% recycled paper package box and paper-based materials used for front and back protectors, the Galaxy S23 series is eco-conscious from the inside out. In total, the number of parts using recycled materials in the lineup increased to 12.
Connect Your Life With Galaxy Ecosystem
The connected experience among the Galaxy devices makes daily life easier for Galaxy users everywhere. Through seamless connectivity, users can enjoy new and convenient features like never before, including easy file or photo transfers between devices.
“The new Galaxy S series line-up is the ultimate creative tool offered in a variety of models that are differentiated for individual needs — whether you’re a pro-grade photographer, content creator or just want to share the epic moments in life. The Galaxy S23 series combines Samsung Galaxy-exclusive performance, standard-setting camera quality and future-looking sustainability in one premium experience, so people don’t have to choose one over the other,” said Justin Hume, Samsung’s Vice President of Mobile Experiences.
The Galaxy S23 series comes in four nature-inspired matte hues: Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender. It ranges from 128GB on the Galaxy S23 up to 1TB on the Galaxy S23 Ultra and it’s now available nationwide for purchase.
