What does the S23 Plus have that the Base model doesn’t?
As per the tweet, the base Galaxy S23 model will be different from the Galaxy S23+ in the below-mentioned terms.
No UFS 4.0 storage chip for the 128GB storage variant
Notably, in the Galaxy S23 series, the Base model is the only device that still has a 128GB storage variant (in pair with 8GB RAM), but it does not use the UFS 4.0 storage chip. The 128GB storage variant is the only device that uses the UFS 3.1 storage chip, which has nearly half the read and writes speed of the USF 4.0 one. Undoubtedly, it will be slower than the rest, even from its own 256GB storage variant.
The Base model uses the Wi-Fi 6E and not Wi-Fi 7
Besides the storage chip, the Base model also lacks the Wi-Fi 7 technology, which the other two members of the S23 series have. Instead, the Base model contains Wi-Fi 6E support. It is said that the Wi-Fi 7 has 4.8x better bandwidth than the Wi-Fi 6E. However, both of them have access to 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz radio frequency bands.
Other minor lacks of the Base Galaxy S23
Other than the above-mentioned features, the base S23 also loses in terms of battery capacity, charging support, and bezel width. The Base model has the smallest battery in the whole series (3900mAh), which doesn’t even support the 45W fast charging, while the rest two do. Besides, it also has a small Display (6.1-inch) and a wider bezel than the Plus and Ultra models. It is also reported that it is not getting the UWB that the S23+ has in it.
