Although the standard Samsung Galaxy S23 hasn’t been generating a lot of good vibes lately, with all the leaks pointing to a scary A phone similar to this year’s Samsung Galaxy S22, the new flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra is making waves in the rumor mill of best Android phones.
It’s making waves because the new Android phone is supposed to come with a series of Android phone upgrades that seem to make it an interesting update to the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is one of Samsung’s best phones.
For example, just a few days ago leaked the S23 Ultra’s new “ultra night photography” feature, which is said to be “the biggest upgrade to Samsung’s flagship mobile phone in five years”.
It comes above the S23 Ultra already fled new upgraded 200MP camera sensor, which is expected to offer its user “unparalleled analytical power”.
Now though, we just did our best see again on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra thanks to this stunning video trailer, which is courtesy of the talented concept designer 4RMD (opens in a new tab). And the concept video makes the S23 Ultra much more appealing than recent leaks have suggested.
The concept video shows a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra sporting a 6.8-inch display with “thinner bezels” than the previous flagship, as well as a brighter display capable of a peak brightness of 2,000 nits.
In terms of design changes for the Android flagship, the handset features “slightly curved edges” with a “flat screen”, with the display covered in Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+.
The S23 Ultra also comes with an S Pen digital stylus, which is black and slots into the handset when not in use.
In terms of cameras, the S23 Ultra in the video comes with a 16MP Ultra Wide unit with a “new faster sensor”, a 108MP Wide camera capable of recording 8K video at 30fps (although a new 200MP sensor has largely leaked), and a 12MP periscope unit capable of 12x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom. While on the front, this Android handset offers a 40MP Wide selfie camera.
When it comes to power and performance, the phone comes with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, 12GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage space and a 5000mAh battery.
There are also a number of colorways for the phone shown in the video, including Phantom White, Phantom Black, Beige, Bora Purple, and Mint.
The T3 socket: Accurate until the latest leaks, but where’s the 200MP camera?
It’s clear that 4RMD has done their homework with this concept video, as it includes many Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra details that have been leaked or widely rumored over the past few months.
Indeed, we know of the prolific OnLeaks about the slightly curved edges and flat display, as well as its nearly identical overall design compared to the S22 Ultra.
However, what this concept video oddly doesn’t show is the upgraded core part of the S23 Ultra – which the phone is confirmed by Samsung leaker Ice Universe to come with a sensor. 200 MP main rear camera.
Indeed, Ice actually stated that “100% confirmed, S23 Ultra main camera: “. And based on more than half a decade of rock-solid predictions in terms of future Samsung phone technology and features, which tells us in Q3 that this is happening. So the 108MP unit shown in this video doesn’t seem accurate to us; the S22 Ultra had this sensor.
Overall, though, there’s no denying that this concept video makes the S23 Ultra look better than ever, and especially in the “Bora Purple” colorway, which we think suits the handset very well. Here’s hoping Samsung delivers the colorway on the official version of the phone.
Whether or not these upgrades are enough to get Android phone users to opt for the S23 Ultra remains unknown, however, and with incredibly powerful rival handsets such as the Google Pixel 7 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 12T Pro already on the market, Samsung is going to have work on the board to keep its crown of king of Android in 2023.
