The new Galaxy S23 is fast approaching! Samsung is set to launch this powerhouse of a smartphone on February 1st. Although the smartphone hasn’t officially been released, you may still be wondering: is the upcoming Galaxy S23 memory expandable?
Unfortunately, from what we know so far, the S23 probably won’t have expandable memory. The Galaxy S22, which is currently the flagship model, has many impressive features, but expandable memory isn’t one of them.
Therefore, we assume Samsung will not include this feature in their upcoming smartphone. This is a bit of a bummer, but then again expandable memories are a thing of the past.
Samsung seems to be following in Apple’s footsteps. The tech giant stopped supporting expandable storage on the S-series back in 2021. The last model with a micro-SD slot was actually the Galaxy S20.
Despite this, we expect the new Galaxy S23 to have two internal storage options – 128 GB and 256 GB. This is normally sufficient storage for most. Although if you wish to increase this, you may have to opt for an external flash drive.
To accompany the Galaxy Unpacked event, set to take place on February 1st, Samsung has opened the Galaxy S23 pre-order list. So, if you want to bag yourself a $50 saving and be the first with the new smartphone, be sure to sign up.
Galaxy S23 features (predicted)
We can safely say the Galaxy S23 will most likely not have expandable storage, but what else could we expect?
Each year we see the release of a new and improved flagship smartphone from Samsung. And with that comes various leaks and predictions from a few reputable online leakers, such as Ice Universe. Luckily, we have done all the hard work for you. Here are all the Galaxy S23 predicted features below:
- Screen Size: 6.1-inch FHD
- CPU: Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
- RAM: 8GB
- Storage: 128GB & 256GB

Sadly, the new Galaxy S23 will probably not have expandable storage. Samsung seems to have adopted Apple’s stance on expandable memories – which is a shame. Leading up to the launch event next month, do not forget to sign-up for Samsung’s pre-order list to be the first to receive the device.
