Thanks to an avalanche of leaks, we have a pretty clear idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is likely to offer when it debuts today (February 1), and now we’ve seen Samsung likely promote its new handsets, thanks to an extensive Twitter thread.
The thread comes from Evan Blass (opens in a new tab), which has an excellent track record, and in any case, it’s either real marketing material or the best fakes we’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, Blass’ tweets are protected so we can’t embed them here, but if you’re a follower we recommend clicking to view them.
We’ve included some photos below, but the tweets contain videos that are worth watching if you’re looking forward to the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT.
There’s not much new information here, but the features highlighted include the ability to take brilliant selfies with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 12MP front camera, regardless of lighting.
There’s also a video dedicated to the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s other cameras, mentioning its 200MP main camera, 10x optical zoom, and the ability to record up to 13 hours of 8K footage.
In fact, most of the information here focuses on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, which apparently also has more than an all-day battery life, the ability to charge from zero to 50% in 20 minutes, and has up to 512GB of storage.
According to one of these videos, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series also uses the toughest Gorilla Glass – presumably that means Gorilla Glass Victus 2, whose inclusion has almost been confirmed. The phones are also said to have a durable Armor Aluminum frame to protect against drops.
Gaming performance is also tweaked, with one video mentioning that these phones use the fastest mobile processor available – this likely means the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 version.
Analysis: little left to learn
Between the video and images shared by Blass and all the previous Samsung Galaxy S23 leaks, it really is starting to feel like pretty much everything about these phones has been leaked.
Unless many of the leaks were inaccurate or Samsung has an ace up its sleeve, there may not be much left to learn from the official unveiling at Galaxy Unpacked 2023.
Still, with only hours left at the time of writing, we’ll find out soon enough. If you want to tune in, here’s how to watch the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch live. We also have a live blog dedicated to the Samsung Galaxy S23 where you can follow all the action – and of course we will have extensive coverage of everything Samsung announces.
