Design of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Recall that Samsung combined the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines in 2022, giving us the Galaxy S Ultra flagship with an incorporated S Pen stylus and enhancing the general design aesthetic of the business-oriented Note flagships.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra now has fewer curved sides and a wider flat area for the display, which improves the secure grip and makes it a little more comfortable to hold. The larger, more imposing, and more noticeable camera lenses perhaps hint at the phone’s photographic prowess.

Additionally, Corning’s new Gorilla Glass Victus 2 is available for the first time on a phone with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is excellent news for the display’s longevity. A fingerprint scanner that uses ultrasound is hidden beneath all of this, and it should always be able to rapidly and accurately authenticate you. There is also face unlocking if you don’t want to rely on the biometric sensor, although it’s less secure.
The commonplace S Pen pen is also available, enabling you to swiftly take notes, create artistic snapshots, and engage with the interface in a variety of different ways. However, Samsung hasn’t made any big changes to the S Pen’s functionality this year, so the indispensable accessory remains as potent as ever.

All models include black S Pen styluses; the only part of the stylus that is coloured is the top clicking button. However, if you purchase the phone from a Samsung store, you can choose from a limited number of exclusive colour options. Lime, Graphite, Sky Blue, and Red are the exclusive hues, and for the time being, you can only get them from Samsung.com.

The hardware within the new Galaxy, though, is what sets it apart. For the first time in recent memory, Samsung has chosen not to provide the Galaxy S23 Ultra with regionally specific chips. We no longer have a phone with an Exynos and a Snapdragon variation; instead, Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra only relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, with (hopefully) no Exynos variant in the works.
Mind you, it’s not your typical Snapdragon chipset; rather, it’s a modified version of Qualcomm’s newest crowning achievement, the “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.” It is slightly faster than the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which might be enough to give it an advantage over rivals.
Because of this, Samsung has been able to fully utilize the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s graphical capabilities, making it an apparent gaming powerhouse. We can only hope that the temperature control will be effective and help sustain performance during gaming. The Galaxy S23 Ultra has storage capacities ranging from 256GB to 1TB and comes with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM. Choose carefully because there is no way to increase the amount of storage using a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s battery and charging capacity is 5,000mAh, which would likely last up to a day of intense usage. The phone can charge at a maximum rate of 45W, which translates to a top-up time of 30 minutes for around 65% of the battery. Additionally planned are faster wireless charging and reverse power sharing.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is shaping up to be a standout flagship device, and we can’t wait to share our first thoughts with you! Be sure to visit our Galaxy S23 Ultra preview to see those.

Software and capabilities of the Galaxy S23 Ultra

Four years of software upgrades are guaranteed with the purchase of the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This is fantastic since it will allow you to take use of the new software capabilities that all Android and One UI updates up to Android 17 will offer. Additionally, you will continue to receive the necessary security patches for an additional year.
The software of choice for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, One UI 5.1, is based on Android 13 and offers some upgrades over One UI 5, which is already present on all of Samsung’s flagship devices. One UI 5.1 has capabilities including picture cloning and isolation similar to iOS 16, as well as enhancements to Bixby, DeX, Gallery, and a few new widgets.
No, One UI 5.1 will not be limited to the Galaxy S23 Ultra; rather, Samsung will soon release the newest software upgrade to the rest of the flagship series, allowing you to experience it on your Galaxy S22 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, and other devices.
