The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is going to be released, and we’ve already learnt a lot about the devices thanks to a continuous stream of leaks. Although we received our initial look at all of the Galaxy S23 family members through leaked renderings, we now have our best look yet at the devices’ overall appearance thanks to leaked dummy unit photographs released on SlashLeaks. These are not-for-sale mock-ups of the lineup, but they show off all the twerks in the body that we couldn’t see in the models.
We know that the next Galaxy S23 series devices will take a design cue from the current-generation S22 Ultra, with each lens poking out independently rather than the separate camera island seen on the vanilla S22 and S22 Plus. What we didn’t see in the images was that new phones will have a less curvaceous frame than previous-generation models, opting for a more angular design with rounded edges.
Design modifications to the Samsung Galaxy S23 series
The photographs make it difficult to distinguish between the basic Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus devices. Their designs are identical in every way: they both have flat sides and front panels, and they both have a triple rear camera arrangement. The main distinguishing feature is the size of the cellphones, with the Plus model being larger than the standard model.
If you assumed discriminating between the vanilla and Plus variants was difficult, wait till you see the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The next highest-end non-foldable Samsung gadget, due out next year, appears to be identical to its predecessor. The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s successor has the same camera setup, and the edges, which are now flatter, will continue to blend into the curved display from a curved back panel.
That being said, they are mock devices, not official Samsung images. As a result, the exact design of the devices will have to wait until the February Galaxy launch event.
