The autumn season has been a remarkable one for technology enthusiasts, particularly in the PC market. As the new year begins, the mobile industry is set to make its own impact, led by Samsung’s annual Galaxy Unpacked event. This year, the event showcases a brand-new trio of flagship phones that make up the Galaxy S23 series.

The Galaxy S23, as the entry-level model, has similarities to its predecessor with a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen boasting a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The dynamic refresh rate has been improved, going from 48 Hz to 120 Hz. The S23 Plus shares the same screen specs as the standard model but boasts a larger size, with a 6.6-inch display.

No significant alterations have been made to the 6.8-inch S23 Ultra, which still boasts a resolution of 1,440 × 3,088 pixels and a refresh rate of 1-120 Hz. Across all three models, the Vision Booster feature remains intact, allowing for machine learning to adjust brightness based on the environment for optimal image quality.

One of the biggest changes from the previous generation, especially in Sweden, is the choice of system circuit. Previously, the European market received Samsung’s proprietary Exynos system chips, which were criticized for lower performance and poorer battery life, while other regions received Snapdragon chips from Qualcomm.

For the Galaxy S23, Samsung has opted to use its newly developed version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, in collaboration with Qualcomm, for all markets, instead of its traditional Exynos chips. This eight-core model consists of four performance cores split between two Cortex-A715 and two Cortex-A710, and three energy-efficient Cortex-A150 cores. All three phones in the S23 series are equipped with this new system circuit.
