Galaxy S23 Ultra offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system with improved Nightography capabilities. Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and color tone. In a Samsung Galaxy first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision. It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.
On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the iconic camera also gets an upgraded look. The contoured housing has been removed, marking a new era of essential Galaxy design that makes the entire series stand out. Together, Samsung and Qualcomm optimized the Samsung Galaxy experience with the brand-new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, the most powerful and efficient platform ever in a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the fastest Snapdragon available today. Meanwhile, on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, a 5000mAh battery powers a larger camera than Galaxy S22 Ultra without increasing the device’s size.
A newly designed CPU microarchitecture boosts the processing abilities of the Galaxy S23 series by about 30 percent compared to the Galaxy S22 series. Since the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung Galaxy increases its use of recycled materials from six internal components in the Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal and external components in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Galaxy S23 series also has a wider variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphone, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and glass and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, PET bottles, and water barrels.
The new S Series is the first to feature Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, offering durability for long-term use and consisting of an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content. The Galaxy S23 series comes in four nature-inspired matte hues: Phantom Black, Cream, Green, and Lavender.
