Samsung has a lot to live up to in 2023 given that it consistently ranks as the top smartphone vendor. Here are our projections for the South Korean IT behemoth based on the most recent data.
All Galaxy S23 variants are expected to come equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU in 2023, which is one of the greatest changes we anticipate from Samsung. Samsung has historically employed both Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPUs and their own Exynos processors in various locations, which has resulted in performance differences. Samsung hopes to avoid the problems associated with the Exynos 2200 in the S22 by choosing the Snapdragon CPU for the S23.
The S23 and S23 Plus are said to offer an increased battery life with an extra 200 mAh in addition to the processor boost. In their next models, Samsung has also said that battery life is a top priority. The camera hump will be eliminated from the S23 basic models, bringing them into line with the S23 Ultra.
The presence of a 200-megapixel camera sensor in the new S23, a feature previously seen in the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and Xiaomi 12T Pro, is another thing to keep an eye out for. While the practicality of such a high-resolution sensor is in question, leaks indicate that it might significantly enhance low light and detail performance. If Samsung can maximize this feature, only time will tell.
Samsung has recently raised the bar for itself in terms of upgrades and support. Ahead of rivals like Google and OnePlus, they were the first major Android maker to declare a commitment to four years of upgrades for their flagship and mid-range smartphones. Additionally, they released its One UI 5 update to devices like the Galaxy A13 5G earlier than expected in 2022. In 2023, we anticipate Samsung will keep up its recent pattern of frequent and thorough updates.
Finally, we expect that Samsung will address certain persistent problems with their smartphones, such the robustness of their foldable devices and the S23 Ultra’s absence of an IP68 rating. Even if some users might not find them to be deal-breakers, fixing them would go a long way toward securing Samsung’s place as the industry leader in the smartphone market.
