The Samsung Galaxy S23 series was unveiled in Singapore on 2 Feb 2023. We were one of just 5 cities across the world given the honour.
Comprising the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra, this much-anticipated series is available for pre-orders with offers to save you hundreds of dollars.
Get a free storage upgrade from 512GB to 1TB and save S$360 when you order the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The free upgrade from 256GB to 512GB is worth S$170 on the Galaxy S23+ 5G, while that from 128GB to 256GB is valued at S$110 on the S23.
Early birds also enjoy an overtrade bonus of up to S$200 with trade-in and free 1-year Extended Warranty. Early delivery will commence from 10 Feb 2023.
Screen-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra have diagonal dimensions of 6.1”, 6.6” and 6.8” respectively.
All 3 models come with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 120Hz refresh rate. HDR10+ delivers the most vivid colours and the deepest blacks while the 1750 nits (peak) brightness means that you can see your screen even in bright daylight.
Samsung has gone all-out with the camera setup. The S23 and S23+ have very respectable 50MP modules but the Ultra tops them by a long shot with its 200MP shooter.
The Ultra also has a periscope telephoto lens equipped with 10x optical zoom and a stupendous 100x digital zoom. That is on top of the 10MP telephoto and 12 MP ultrawide cameras it shares with its smaller cousins.
Samsung says that users can even take photos and videos in total darkness using the Nightography mode of the new series. This feature works with both the back and selfie cameras.
Impact protection comes in the form of Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on both the screen and back, bordered by a lightweight aluminium frame. All sets come with IP68 protection that has become standard across Samsung’s Galaxy devices over the past few years.
Interestingly, Samsung has launched a Self-repair program that gives users the resources and know-how to repair damaged devices themselves. It is currently only available in the US but the company plans to roll it out across the world.
