For all you Samsung enthusiasts out there, watch out, as we anticipate the release of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23, Z Flip 5, and Z Fold 5. Keep on reading our article so you don’t miss out on the opportunity to grab yourself the latest generation smartphone.

What to expect from Samsung in 2023?

Of course, we expect the release of a bunch of new phones from Samsung this year. When it comes to Samsung’s next generation of mobile devices, many rumors are already circulating.

Here is the list of expected models and release dates of the upcoming iterations of Samsung’s current smartphone selection.

  • Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra – February 2023
  • Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 – August 2023
  • Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 – August 2023

Take this list with a pinch of salt. These are our expectations based on past history.

Samsung Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra

The unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is likely to be the first smartphone launch of the year. Following Samsung’s past release date schedule we expect to see this launch happen sometime this February.

Rumors have already been circulating that the phone will be available in stores around February 17th but of course, this cannot be confirmed.

Looking at expected costs, we would not be surprised if the next generation follows a similar pattern to the S22 and S21 release prices. Making the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra sit at the premium price point and the S23 at the lowest.

As with every update, we expect the new model to hold a very close resemblance to the current S22 design. With some design leaks already surfacing on the internet, it looks as though Samsung has invested more in the internal upgrades than external.

Leakers have also suggested upgrades in the screen quality – hinting at new AMOLED screens and a refresh rate of 120Hz. If this is true, expect to see a better, more colorful, and brighter screen on these devices.

Hints have also been coming through about Samsung’s choice in using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip exclusively this year – but these again are all rumors.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5

Now we couldn’t forget Samsung’s revolutionary folding smartphones. Following the systematic release of the models every summer, we will be sure to expect the latest Z Flip and Fold this year.

Just like the last two releases, we hope to see the launch event in early August and the subsequent release date at the end of the month. Again with pricing, just like the previous models we expect to see these phones priced between $1,000 to $2,200.

For both phones, we aren’t anticipating any crazy changes to come. For the Galaxy Z Fold 5, we anticipate that Samsung will try to reduce the folded crease to create a more sleek design.

As for the Galaxy Z Flip 5, we hope Samsung makes more improvements to the cover screen. This was a frequent complaint from Flip users. Also, we would love to see some internal upgrades to the smartphone’s processor and battery capabilities.
