The Samsung Galaxy S23 It could be the most powerful phone you can buy when it hits the market early next year.
This comes from Leak on 91mobiles.com (Opens in a new tab) It indicates that Samsung’s next flagship (read: flat phone) will use the as yet unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 Slices. The current king of smartphone chips, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 It only recently started charging on flagship phones, including the new OnePlus 10T.
Qualcomm is expected to announce its next-generation smartphone chipset later this year, but the November or December announcement won’t give manufacturers time to roll the chip into phones for the December holiday sales season. The Samsung Galaxy S23 will likely be announced in February 2023, if the Galaxy S launch date is any indication. This would be perfect timing to introduce the new class-leading chip.
Samsung may deserve to be rewarded for being the first to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen2. Recent news suggests that Samsung will be handing over future generations of Galaxy S phones entirely to Qualcomm chips, rather than using its own Samsung Exynos chipset for a fraction of global shipping.
Every Galaxy S23 sold worldwide will likely pack the same chip, which would give Qualcomm a big profit if that chip were the Snapdragon 8 Gen2.
The leaker, the anonymous “Ice Universe” who has a reputation for accuracy, also claims that the Galaxy S23 will have a 5,000mAh battery. That would be great if that big battery ended up in the smallest Galaxy S23, but we’ll hold back until we know for sure. The current Galaxy S22 Ultra uses a 5,000mAh battery, while the smaller Galaxy S22 uses a 3,700mAh battery.
