A tipster has revealed the Samsung Galaxy S23 series pricing in South Korea. The leaked prices suggest that the Galaxy S23 series will be priced higher than the Galaxy S22 series.

  • S23 – 1,199,000 won (approx. ₹79,300)
  • S23+ – 1,397,000 won (approx. ₹92,300)
  • S23 Ultra – 1,599,400 won (approx. ₹1,05,700)
For comparison, the Galaxy S22 was launched at the following prices in South Korea –

  • S22 – 999,000 won (approx. ₹66,100)
  • S22+ – 1,199,000 won (approx. ₹79,300)
  • S22 Ultra – 1,452,000 won (approx. ₹96,000)
This will further push the Indian pricing, which was already higher than the South Korean pricing. If the leaked prices are true, we can expect an increase of 10 to 20%.

Samsung Galaxy S23 series design


The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to look identical to the Galaxy S22 series, with the vanilla Galaxy S23 featuring a revamped camera module, giving it separate holes for the three cameras at the back, just like the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will reportedly feature a quad-curved display, an upgrade over the dual-curved display used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The devices are expected to be launched in three color options – black, beige, green, and light pink. The beige option will reportedly replace the white option seen in earlier iterations.

Samsung Galaxy S23 series display


The Galaxy S23 series is expected to feature the same displays as its predecessor.

The Galaxy S23 will feature a 6.1-inch Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy S23+ is expected to feature a larger 6.6-inch Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. On the other hand, the top-end Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to sport a slightly larger 6.8-inch Quad HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The devices are expected to feature better display protection as they are expected to be protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus 2 launched in December 2022.
