Samsung Estonia may have revealed the preorder gift for the Galaxy S23 series and its release date
The original article continues below.
Last month, trusted leaker Ice Universe said that the Galaxy S23 range would be announced on February 1, and his intel has proven correct.
Apparently, Samsung Columbia
briefly put up an announcement about the Galaxy S23 launch date, confirming that the next Unpacked event will be held on February 1 but the page was quickly pulled back, probably because it was posted prematurely.
Regardless, it’s pretty much confirmed now that the Galaxy S23 range will be unveiled on the first day of next month, and this doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as a good many rumors had indicated that Samsung would present its next S series line earlier than last year. For reference, the Galaxy S22
was announced on February 09.
Galaxy S23 announcement poster says “epic moments are coming.”
The poster seems to confirm a couple of rumors. First of all, the bumpless camera array design
is sticking around and will be embraced by the standard and the Plus models as well. It also seems to back rumors about Misty Lilac, Botanic Green, and Phantom Black color options
. The phone is additionally expected to be widely available in Cotton Flower.
Per a recent tweet by reliable insider Ross Young
, Gray, Light Blue, Light Green, and Red Galaxy S23 Ultra variants will also be available in limited volume.
A couple of rumors had previously suggested that indecisiveness on pricing would lead to a delay. Reports had said that rising components costs warranted a price increase, but Samsung didn’t want to divert demand
to the iPhone 14 Pro. The company has now allegedly decided to hike prices
and whether this will affect the phones’ chances of becoming the best handsets of 2023
remains to be seen.
