Reports about the Samsung Galaxy S23 have started flowing and we’ve now learned that the flagship series might get a launch in the first week of February. Another report has said that the Light performance mode, which Samsung introduced on its foldables recently, will be available on the new phone as well.
A South Korean publication named Chosun (via GSM Arena) has said that Samsung is planning to host an Unpacked event in San Francisco during the first week of February next year. It has also said that phones from the Galaxy S23 range will hit store shelves around February 17.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm has confirmed that the Galaxy S23 series handsets will ship with Snapdragon chipsets. And although the exact model hasn’t been named, we can bet that it’s the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that’s being prepped for next year’s flagships.
With stronger performance and better battery life expected to be this SoC’s USPs, the Light performance mode won’t quite be an essential feature for a lot of users. Nonetheless, Ice Universe has said on Twitter that it will indeed come with the Galaxy S23 devices.
This mode is known to moderately reduce performance to make a big difference to the battery life. If you’re wondering, it’s separate from battery-saving mode and is aimed at non-gamers who don’t demand every ounce of performance the chipset has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to come with a 200MP camera on its back. Bigger batteries and larger fingerprint scanners are also expected to form part of the offerings of these phones.
We’ll have more on the Samsung Galaxy S23 when new information is available.
