Highlight of Galaxy Unpacked 2023: Hands-on With Galaxy S23 Series
The mystery behind Galaxy Unpacked 2023’s invitation has finally been revealed. The three light bulbs featured prominently on the invitation represent the three 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 Galaxy S23 series has been released in Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender. The rear phone cameras have been vertically aligned for a unified and refined look. From left, Galaxy S23+, Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S23.
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 colors – 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 summarize 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 colors, 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 optimized for taking pictures in darkness, including enhanced night selfies and portraits. So even in low light, users can always look camera-ready.
With the Galaxy S23 Ultra, visitors can experience the improved Nightography feature while taking selfies in the Capture the Epic experience zone.
Nightography reduces noise, even in dark environments. The Galaxy S23 Ultra uses AI based Object-aware engine to capture subjects clearly, allowing selfie videos to come to life at night.
Visitors tested the improved Nightography feature by capturing vivid selfie videos with little to no noise, despite indirect neon sign lighting.
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.
In the Play the Epic Zone, visitors can experience how the Galaxy S23 series brings mobile gaming to the next level.
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 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 aluminum, 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.
