The rumors were apparently true. Samsung has announced that its first Galaxy Unpacked event of 2023 will take place on February 1 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. And unlike last year’s events, the company is comfortable with a face-to-face presentation — inviting the media to the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco. You can of course still watch a live stream on the Samsung website.
Samsung hasn’t said what to expect, but it’s not so subtly teasing a Galaxy S23 launch between a likely three-camera teaser in the invite (above) and the nature of its pre-order plans. Americans can Reserve the future Galaxy devices on February 1st. Those who sign up for the reserve system by that day will receive $50 in Samsung credit if they preorder one device, or $100 if they buy two.
What will the Galaxy S23 bring? Leaks suggest that Samsung will ditch the Exynos chips commonly used in some markets in favor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The S23 Ultra could also feature a 200-megapixel main camera instead of last year’s model’s 108-megapixel sensor, while the regular S23 and S23+ models might have 50-megapixel cameras. While the design might not change significantly, you can see improved selfie cameras, emergency satellite messaging and possibly a flat display on the Ultra variant. It’s safe to say we’ll be at the event to see the new hardware for ourselves.
