The Samsung Galaxy S23 range will be unveiled on February 1, according to two prominent leaksters. And it’s being said that all the phones from the range will include overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors.

Earlier reports had stated that only the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will ship with the overclocked version of the CPU. But a Geekbench listing of the base Galaxy S23 model has now been spotted bearing the same SoC.

Qualcomm’s official figures tell us that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip’s prime core can reach up to 3.19GHz. The benchmark listing, however, points to the prime core reaching 3.36GHz, confirming the overclock for the base Galaxy S23 model.

Meanwhile, news about the February 1 launch of this new Samsung flagship lineup comes from Ice Universe and @OnLeaks, the two Twitter accounts known for delivering accurate leaks. Samsung is expected to announce a Galaxy Unpacked event soon.

That being said, the Galaxy S23 range promises to set a benchmark for other flagships in 2023. The phones are expected to keep the same design as their predecessors, though there are some notable changes in the specs department.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is tipped to carry a whopping 200MP main sensor on its back. Meanwhile, there are rumours that an iPhone-like satellite communication feature might make its way onto the devices. And there’s also word that an upgrade fingerprint scanner will be featured.

This could be the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint reader, which boasts a footprint 17 times larger than the current in-display fingerprint readers used by Samsung. It is touted to allow the scanning of multiple fingerprints at once.
