Whether it ends up being or not the latest of its kind, Samsung’s Galaxy S23+ most certainly accompanies a “full-sized” S23 and a state-of-the-art S23 Ultra model on February 1st. If you don’t believe us, we ultimately have the official press releases (leaked by a decidedly “unofficial” source) to prove it.
Do you like what you see?
Before you even think about it, no, it’s not 100 per cent same as last year Galaxy S22 Plus. By far the most obvious difference is the rear-facing camera layout, which seems to gain in subtlety and lose consistency, just like on the “vanilla” S23.
The three shooters at the back of the The Galaxy S23+ is far less important than the same imaging sensors on the S22+, which we’re sure some of you will be quick to praise as a positive change while others will probably feel…differently. .
That’s why they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the old adage definitely applies to the 6’s flat screen, super-thin bezels, rounded corners, and overall very clean back panel. 6 inches approx. Galaxy S23+ too.
Even the four “main” colors rendered above are a matter of personal taste, with the “Cotton Flower” and “Misty Lilac” hues, for example, looking a bit bland in this writer’s humble opinion, while the work of “Botanic Green” paint looks way too greyish to turn many heads.
Then there’s “Phantom Black”, which is just a good old-fashioned black with a cool name, which makes us hope that the Galaxy S23 Plus will “borrow” at least some of the additional “limited” colorways from the S23 Ultra. . Now, how cool would this thing look in an eye-catching red hue?
Does the Galaxy S23+ have a chance?
Following in the footsteps of a good-but-not-great phone that was eclipsed by its Ultra sibling from the start en route to disappointing sales numbers, the S23 Plus looks…equally disappointing and unimpressive on paper, which means we really wouldn’t be shocked if this thing’s box office performance leads to next year’s cancellation Galaxy S24+.
But there, we obviously take a little advance. After all, while the rumors are certainly not encouraging, Samsung might get the Galaxy S23 series prices are fair. Or at least “just” enough to keep the S23+ afloat.
Given the state of the global smartphone market as a whole and the aforementioned poor sales results of last year’s S22 family, we can’t help but hope Samsung will launch the S23 Plus in early February at a lower rather than higher price than the S22+. We know, we know, it’s unlikely, but not impossible.
Just in case that doesn’t happen, you might want to reserve the S23+ (or the S23 or the S23 Ultra) and get a nice pre-order discount, plus (hopefully) a extra sweetener in the form of a cool introductory gift. Early bookings don’t come with an obligation to order one of these devices when they’re released, so you really have nothing to lose and (potentially) a lot to gain.
