The 5 most important new features of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series

Published

on


The long-awaited Galaxy S23 series officially launched in the global market. The company (Samsung) has already started accepting pre-orders for it. Notably, the series will get a total of three devices as usual, which are Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra. All three of them compile plenty of new features, which further increases the value of this series. Today we will focus on the 5 most important new offerings of this series. So, let’s get started. 

1. The new One UI 5.1

The Galaxy S23 series gave a platform to this newly-launched One UI 5.1 update, which is also the most admirable offering of this series. Informatively, the One UI 5.1 update has been launched with the Galaxy S23 series out of the box. It is based on Android 13, and as it made its official debut with the S23 series, this series is the first one to get it. Notably, the One UI 5.1 has a lot to serve.

2. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset

The most important and noticeable thing about the Galaxy S23 series is its processor. All three devices of this series feature an overclocked version of Qualcomm’s chipset, which is the “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset”. The other thing is, this time, Samsung hadn’t produced any Exynos-based devices due to the issues it has shown previously, which means all the S23 models are running on this Galaxy dedicated SoC. 

For information, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset has the Adreno 740 GPU and an improved CPU. It is an octa-core processor, which is said to have a better clock speed of 3.36GHz. The chipset has increased the Galaxy S23 series’ processing abilities by 30% as compared to its predecessor series Galaxy S22. 

3. 200MP image sensor for the top-of-the-line Ultra model

Besides the processor, the other appreciable thing of this series is the 200MP image sensor of its Galaxy S23 Ultra device. This adaptive pixel sensor is capable of withstanding all lighting levels. The sensor uses a better pixel binning technology, which helps it to offer a total of three output options- 200MP, 50MP, and 12MP. Notably, it is the main rear camera sensor of the Ultra device, which can capture sharper and clearer images. 

4. A better USF 4.0 memories 

Apart from all of these, a device’s memory is also the most important component of it. Hence, the Galaxy S23 series will undoubtedly win in this league. Informatively, the recently-launched series contains the USF 4.0 memory type in it. The 4.0 memory is faster and more efficient compared to the previous 3.1 memory type. It is said to have a maximum data transfer speed of 23.2 GB/s. 

Additionally, the USF 4.0 memory has read and write speeds of 4200MB/s and 2800MB/s, respectively. It has also got a 46% improvement in its sequential read speed (6MB/s). Notably, the Plus and Ultra model of the Galaxy S23 series uses USF 4.0 memory, but the Base Galaxy S23 device is stuck with USF 3.1 memory. 

5. A more consistent design and stability 

Now, the design and stability are quite different from the rest of the modifications because the others can be experienced by using them, but the design can be seen through the bare eye, and stability can be justified by time. Notably, for better stability, the company has protected the Galaxy S23 series with Corning’s new Gorilla Glass Victus 2, on the front and back, which provides greater protection. 

Adobe Lightroom became the official native photo editing software for the Galaxy S23 Ultra

The company has tried something new with this Galaxy S23 device this time. In particular, the company has removed the perimeter housing, and now all the camera sensors of these phones have emerged directly into the body, which provides it with a better and different look. Other than this, Samsung has used recycled material in the S23 devices’ manufacturing, which makes the series even more valuable.

Samsung Outpaces Apple in Q1 2024 Shipments, Grabs Smartphone Lead According to IDC

Samsung is leading the race as Apple loses its top phone maker position since iPhone shipments shot down in the first quarter of 2024. 

The first quarter of 2024 has already passed, as per the metrics of Apple (AAPL). Smartphone shipments shot down nearly 10%; it is being speculated that intensifying competition by Android smartphone makers aiming for the top spot is causing this, according to data from research firm IDC

Global smartphone shipments rose 7.8% to 289.4 million units during the first quarter from January to March, at 20.8% market share, clinching the top phone maker spot from Apple. 

Apple’s iPhone sales started shooting down sharply after going through a tough quarter. It even overtook Samsung as the world’s number one phone maker, but unfortunately, it has fallen back to second place with 17.3% market share as Chinese brands such as Huawei gain market share. 

Xiaomi was in the third position with a 14.1% share during the first quarter. One of the key reasons behind Apple losing its first position is Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series, which launched earlier this year, and the brand has shipped more than 60 million units of the Galaxy S24 within the first quarter. 

Global sales of Galaxy S24 smartphones boosted by 8% as compared to their predecessor Galaxy S23 series in their first three weeks of availability, data provider Counterpoint previously said. As per the metrics of the first quarter, Apple shipped 50.1 million iPhones, down from the 55.4 million units it shipped in the same period last year, according to IDC. 

Whereas, Apple’s smartphone shipments in China shrank 2.1% in the final quarter of 2023 as compared to 2022. iPhone sales collapsed in China, which is Apple’s third-biggest market. This decline is partly because of restrictions placed on Apple devices by a few Chinese brands and also government agencies, mirroring the same actions the US government has taken against Chinese applications. Apple will hold its WWDC in June to introduce software updates for its devices.

Samsung’s Galaxy AI-enabled Galaxy S24 series hit the market earlier this year in January and within no time broke down its predecessors’ pre-order record, and AI features were the key reason behind it setting a new sales record. 

The Galaxy S24 features high-end specs, decent design, brand-new features, and many more, but the Galaxy AI features are the novelty of the smartphone, which attracts people to go for the Galaxy S24 device. The recent metrics collected by Worldpanel ComTech reveal that one out of four Galaxy S24 purchasers in France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, the USA, and Australia stated that AI was a chief reason they chose Samsung’s new AI-enabled smartphone despite its lengthy price. 

Here we are mentioning the percentage of Galaxy S24 owners who bought the device just to experience a specific Galaxy AI feature: 

  • 28% of users wanted to use the interpreter. 
  • 24% wanted to use the AI camera and gallery enhancements. 
  • 17% wanted to experience Circle to Search 

Samsung is the first brand to promote, highlight, and advertise AI features as a key component of a new high-end smartphone on the market, despite having dozens of high-end features and key specs. 

Now the giants are looking forward to bringing Galaxy AI features to older devices. Although Samsung has introduced Galaxy AI features for free, on the official Galaxy AI page, the terms and conditions mention that these features are only available for free until 2025, which means that Galaxy AI features will not stay free forever. On the other hand, it is actively working to offer more advanced AI features for free.

Samsung earlier this year debuted its Galaxy S24 flagship series. Now fans are eagerly waiting for the fan edition of this series, called Galaxy S24 FE, to be in the line! 

Samsung, especially for fans who prefer high-end phones but have a budget, introduces a special variant called ‘Fan Edition (FE).’ Now the reports are saying that the Galaxy S24 FE could arrive with the same SoC and rear camera arrangement as the Galaxy S24+ but in a smaller package since it’s a bit budget-able as compared to that. 

Galaxy S24 FE: Expected Specs 

It is expected that the forthcoming Galaxy S24 FE will feature the Exynos 2400 or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the same chips that can run the Galaxy S24. If the reports are to be believed, then the Galaxy S24 FE could feature a 6.1-inch AMOLED panel as opposed to the 6.2-inch LTPO AMOLED 2X panel on the Galaxy S24. 

Samsung is already actively working on mass-producing driver chips for the forthcoming Galaxy S24 FE model, as it aims to be in millions of units. It is also reported that this time Samsung may also use the latest display technology, along with a minimalistic bezel, FHD+ resolution, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a higher peak brightness of up to 1700+ nits for the forthcoming Galaxy S24 FE. The camera arrangement could include a 50 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, and an 8 MP The battery power may count to 4,5000 mAh. 

Galaxy S24 FE: Expected Price and Launch 

Since FE variants are a little more budgeable than the original variant, it is expected that the Galaxy S24 FE could be priced under the $720 segment. On the other hand, the Galaxy S24 was launched starting at $960. 

Last year, Samsung debuted the Galaxy S23 FE variant in October, so given this prospect, it is expected that the forthcoming Galaxy S24 FE could arrive in nearly October this summer.
