Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S23 are spreading as the product line’s launch date approaches. It was recently reported that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra model may have a less curved screen than the S22 Ultra in order to address complaints about the S Pen’s usability and durability. Another rumor is that the Galaxy S23 series will have more basic storage capacity than the S22 series.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will have more storage space
The base storage option for all Galaxy S22 models, including the S22 Ultra, is 128 GB. They also lack a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Ahmed Qwaider, best known for leaking hands-on videos of unreleased phones, claims that internal storage for all Galaxy S23 models will begin at 256GB.
He also stated that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have 12GB of RAM as standard. For comparison, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has 8 GB of RAM as standard.
After all, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to include a 200MP main camera sensor, and all models may include a new front-facing camera. As a result, 128 GB is not suitable for people who take a lot of photos (unless they mainly store in the cloud).
The Galaxy S23 series is also rumored to include a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and a new cooling system, so having more space to download games would be ideal.
It is unclear whether this will result in a price increase. There have been rumors that Samsung is considering raising the price of the Galaxy S23 phone to compensate for rising component costs, but this could hurt demand.
Renowned leaker Roland Quandt has denied the rumor, stating that the 128GB option remains available. The Galaxy S23 series is expected to be announced by Samsung on February 1, so we’ll have to wait until then to find out which leaks are true.
