Samsung’s next S-series flagship is almost here: Here’s what to expect

We’re closing in on February, and as every year, Samsung is gearing up to launch its next flagship entry in the Galaxy S-series lineup. The brand’s new smartphones, set to launch on February 1 during the Galaxy Unpacked event, will take on the mantle of Samsung’s latest and greatest from last year’s Galaxy S22 series phones, which included the Galaxy S22, the S22 Plus and the top-end S22 Ultra.

Ahead of the launch, here’s all we know about the next Samsung flagship phones so far, including design, what’s under the hood and more.

What to expect?

Samsung is expected to launch three models this year as well, comprising a vanilla base model, which will be a more compact but equally powerful phone, succeeding the Galaxy S22, a Plus variant with a larger display and battery to succeed the S22 Plus, and finally, an Ultra model with top-of-the-line specifications, just like the S22 Ultra.

We may see triple camera setups on the back of these phones, but the Ultra variant might just have one extra camera. The phones are also expected to ship with Samsung’s own Android 13-based One UI 5 skin.

Under the hood

Samsung’s S-series phones have historically featured the brand’s in-house Exynos chipsets in the Indian market. That changed last year with the Galaxy S22-series, which came packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset in India as well. That trend is unlikely to change this year.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S-series phones will also likely come with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon flagship chipset. Unless Samsung has any surprises for us, the chip in question could very well be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

Apart from this, expect top-of-the-line specifications on the phones, including at least 8GB RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, wireless charging support and an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Support for features like 8K recording, night mode photography, video stabilisation is also set to improve, while Samsung’s baked-in features like Dual Video, Samsung’s DeX (Desktop Mode service) and AKG-tuned audio are also expected to make a comeback.

What about the cameras?

The Galaxy S-series phones are some of the best camera smartphones every year. With the new phones, Samsung is rumoured to pack a 200-megapixel primary camera on the top variant of the series, along with other auxiliary cameras for ultrawide photography and more.

Meanwhile, base-level variants of the series may not come with any 200-megapixel sensors, but Samsung is still expected to feature flagship-level cameras on these variants. The Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus already feature 50-megapixel triple camera setups, and we expect the successors to pack something equally capable, if not better.

When are the phones launching?

The next Samsung Galaxy S-series phones are set to launch on February 1, 2023. In India, the phones will likely go on sale soon after.
