It’s that time of the year when tech companies start to roll out their all-new smartphones and setting the bar high at just the second month of the new year is Korean tech giant Samsung with their freshly unveiled Galaxy S23 series.
The series marks a new era of Samsung Galaxy’s ultimate premium phone experience and aims to push the boundaries of what your smartphone can offer you. Not only have the cameras been upgraded to give you cinematic Nightography videos with transformative AI, but the Galaxy’s mobile platform has also been updated to bring you a better premium experience that includes groundbreaking AI, future-ready mobile gaming features, and a powerful sustained game play with the world’s fastest mobile graphics.
Here’s a closer look at the key features of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series.
MOST ADVANCED CAMERA SYSTEM YET
Since the invention of the smartphone, we have all become budding photographers in some way. With the Galaxy S23 series, you will be given the ultimate creative control and customisation with their suite of tools which includes the exclusive Samsung Galaxy only Expert RAW app, which enables DSLR-style image shooting and editing in RAW and JPEG, and the advanced, object-based AI which analyses each detail in the frame including minute facial features such as hair and eyes to carefully reflect a person’s dynamic characteristics.

Those seeking the high level Galaxy S23 Ultra can now enjoy their most advanced camera system yet with its new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once so that you can capture special moments with incredible precision.
Tailored for almost any lighting conditions and engineered to render great detail, the Galaxy S23 Ultra also features a doubled optical image stabiliser (OIS) for stable, clear videos, which will come in handy when you find yourself taking videos in a situation with low-light or just plain terrible lighting.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series also introduces an upgrade to its selfie cameras with fast autofocus and the first-ever Super HDR selfie camera which jumps from 30fps to 60fps so that you can get better, sharper front-facing images and videos. All models of the Galaxy S23 series will get an upgraded look with the typical contour housing removed from the rear where the cameras are housed. This will begin a new era of Galaxy design that is focused on making key features of the smartphone stand out.
IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE
Whether you’re just browsing the internet or gaming like a professional, the Galaxy S23 series promises to provide the most efficient experience with the brand-new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy and optimised GPU, which is now about 41% faster compared to the Galaxy S22 series.
The newly designed CPU micro architecture boosts the processing abilities of the Galaxy S23 series by about 30% compared to its predecessor while the NPU architecture has been optimised by 49% to balance performance and power while using an AI algorithm to help with photo and video taking. A bigger vapor cooling chamber has also been added to the Galaxy S23 models to cope better with prolonged mobile gaming or usage.

Those planning to get the Galaxy S23 Ultra will get to experience real-time ray tracing where you will be able to noticeably see more lifelike renderings of scenes thanks to the in-built technology that simulates and tracks every ray of light.
The 6.8-inch edge display of the Galaxy S23 Ultra has been refreshed with a reduced curvature to create a larger and flatter surface area so you can get the best visual experience while browsing or binge-watching a series. Paired with Samsung Galaxy’s unique Enhanced comfort feature, you will be able to adjust colour tones and contrast levels so that you can continue to use your phone (especially at night) with lesser eye strain.
The Galaxy S23 series takes the opportunity to get eco-friendly with more components made using a wide variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphones, and is UL ECOLOGO certified as a product that has reduced environmental impact. Since the launch of the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has increased the use of recycled materials in their Galaxy smartphones from the initial six internal components used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal components in the new Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Despite the eco-friendly design, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series does not compromise on quality and is the first range to feature Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 which offers durability for long-term use, and is made with an average of 22% pre-consumer recycled content. Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone will come in a redesigned packaging box which is made with 100% recycled paper. So, in addition to enjoying a brand new smartphone, you will also be doing your part for the environment!
