How the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be different from its predecessor S22 Ultra

Published

on


The biggest competitor of any soon-to-be-launched device is its own predecessor, and the same goes for the flagships as well. Hence, as the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s (top model of the Galaxy S23 series) launch is drawing near, every tech admirer desires to know what Samsung has done with it to make it different and more reliable than its foregoer Galaxy S22 Ultra, which can attract users towards it. Let’s find out the answer to it. 

Odds of Galaxy S23 and S22 Ultra

First of all, let us inform you that both of these devices (the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra) are the top-of-the-line models of their respective series, Galaxy S22, and S23. These are the top smartphone models of Samsung and are widely popular in the tech world. The S22 member joined the market last year (2022), and the S23 member will make its debut on 1st Feb at Galaxy Unpacked Event 2023. Now let’s move on to the main part, the odds of Galaxy S23 Ultra are listed below. 

The camera of the Galaxy S23 Ultra 

The Galaxy S23 Ultra has brought major upgrades in terms of camera. In particular, the S23 Ultra device does have the same quad camera setup on the back, but it has got some differences in the sensors and zooming abilities, which are mentioned below- 

  • The S23 Ultra has a 200MP ISOCELL HP2 image sensor, while the S22 Ultra features 108MP ISOCELL HM3. 
  • The soon-to-be-launched device could get 30x zooming ability which is only 20x for the S22 member. 
  • Now this one is quite frightening, but a 12MP selfie camera is smaller than S22’s 40MP shooter. 
Display modifications of the Galaxy S23 Ultra

Just like the Camera, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has brought enormous modifications to its Display too. However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra device features the same 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, but it has got upgrades in some terms. All Display modifications the S23 series member will show can be found below- 

A better hardware composition

The whole Galaxy S23 series features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, so the Ultra model does, too, while the S22 Ultra has the Gen 1 SoC of the same. However, the series features an overclocked version of the same processor, which is said to have a better clock speed than its base version. Another difference is that this time there will be no Exynos-based variant for this series, and all Galaxy S23 devices will have the Snapdragon processor only. 

On the other hand, the S23 Ultra model will also feature updated RAM technology. On one side, the Galaxy S22 Ultra features LPDDR5 RAM (UFS 3.1), while on the other side, the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra features LPDDR5X RAM (UFS 4.0). Besides, there will be no 128GB internal storage variant for the S23 member as the Galaxy S22 Ultra does. 

Differences in terms of OS and UI

The upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra will be booted with Android 13 and One UI 5.1 on top of it. However, the Galaxy S22 Ultra (introduced with Android 12) has also got the Android 13 update but with the One UI 5.0 version. As the S23 Ultra device is coming with a generation-up OS version, it will end up with an additional update (as compared to S22 Ultra) too. In particular, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will stretch up to Android version 16, but the Galaxy S23 Ultra is the first Samsung device to reach up to Android 17

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 to Miss Out on Wi-Fi 7 Compatibility

Published

By


Samsung’s sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, are close to taking the floor at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July. Maybe the Galaxy Z Flip 6 won’t support Wi-Fi 7.

Despite leading the foldable market, Samsung’s Galaxy foldable devices still lack a few features, and it’s the same case with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6. The report says the forthcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 reveals that the phone will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra is the first and only Galaxy smartphone that supports Wi-Fi 7 facilities. 

Since the brand has already introduced Wi-Fi 7 on the existing Galaxy S24 Ultra, it was expected that the upcoming foldable device would also bring the same Wi-Fi support, but unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore. This is being speculated by the FCC certification, which hinted that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. However, the device potentially has Wi-Fi disabled at a firmware or software level, as we have already seen on the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. 

All Galaxy S24 variants arrived with the essential hardware on the Snapdragon variants, but since the Exynos chip that powers them in most countries tops out at Wi-Fi 6E, Samsung chose to artificially restrict Wi-Fi 7 on all the Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ units regardless of the chip inside. The Galaxy Z Flip 6 might have lower specs as compared to other Galaxy flagships, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to support future Wi-Fi 7 for better futureproofing.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

Samsung Galaxy S23’s May Security Patch Cause Unknown Error on Google Wallet

Published

Samsung has delivered this month’s May 2024 security patch for the Galaxy S23 device. Now, users of the device from several regions are reporting that after installing the patch, their Google Wallet isn’t working seamlessly. 

A couple of days ago, Google officially released a statement saying that from June 10th, Google Wallet will only be compatible with devices that at least run on Android 9 or above. Now the report is saying that Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S23, users are facing issues while using Google Wallet. 

A recent report suggest that a lot of Samsung Galaxy S23 users have reported through the Korean manufacturer’s community forums that, after installing the May 2024 security patch, they cannot use the Google Wallet seamlessly and flawlessly as before. These users have claimed that right after downloading the latest Android security patch, the Google Wallet app displays an unknown error message indicating that the phone does not meet the required security standards, causing them to be unable to make contactless payments. 

Galaxy S23 users are not even able to access the cards that were linked to the platform. Noticeably, a huge percentage of reports come from Galaxy S23 users belonging to Europe; however, this issue has also been detected in other regions, including Australia, the US, or the United Arab Emirates, and other devices like the Galaxy S22 or the Pixel 8 Pro. 

If you are going through this inconvenient issue, here’s a temporary solution. You can uninstall the application updates in the Google Play Store. This will help you in a way; the error message will still appear in the app, but it will let you make payments with it again.
