The Samsung Galaxy S23 series has been launched globally with three phones, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23. As confirmed by all the rumors earlier, the Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a 200 MP camera and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The S23 and S23 Plus smartphones come with a 50 MP primary camera and share the same chipset as their Ultra cousin. Also, to be fair, the S23 series is not that big of an update over the Galaxy S22 series and thus, Samsung has not been that good this time with its Galaxy Unpacked event. In this article, we will talk about the Samsung Galaxy S23 price, specifications, and more. 

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Launched with S23 & S23 Plus 5G: Price & Specifications

Samsung Galaxy S23 Price and Specifications

The price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 is $799 in the US and if we follow the history, then we may get the Galaxy S23 mobile phone for around Rs 75,000 in India.

The Galaxy S23 5G is the most compact and affordable phone in the S23 series and these reasons make it so appealing, just like the Galaxy S22 5G smartphone. But to be honest, the Galaxy S23 is more or less the same as the Samsung S22 mobile phone. The only two major differences are the new chipset and a 3900 mAh battery in the latest S23.

So on paper, the Galaxy S23 may not sound that impressive when compared to the S22 smartphone but, the real life experience greatly differs. The biggest problem with the Galaxy S22 mobile phone was its smaller battery, which got a lot of criticism from users. Thus with a more power efficient processor and a slightly bigger battery, the Galaxy S23 Ultra might be the best compact phone of the year.

According to Samsung, the low light photography on the Samsung Galaxy S23 series has improved compared to last year. So if it’s true, the S23 can be a sensible option for anyone who is looking for a complete package.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G Price & Specifications

The price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is $1,199 in the US. So, you can expect that the S23 Ultra 5G will cost somewhere around Rs 1,20,000 in India. For this price, it is not a worthy upgrade over the Galaxy S22 Ultra as the only thing that has improved here is the main camera and the performance by a slight difference.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra mobile phone has a 200 MP camera and this phone is going to be one of the best camera smartphones in 2023. But even so, it is not that big of a deal when you compare it with the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is said to be the best Android phone of 2022 by many. So if you already have a Galaxy S22 Ultra, then the S23 Ultra should not even be on your list.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can record 4K 60FPS (front and back) and 8K 30 FPS videos too, which is a good thing.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus Price & Specifications

The price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus is $999 in the US. Talking about India, we can expect it to come around Rs 95,000.

The Samsung S23 Plus 5G mobile phone is the most confusing device on the list. It has a 6.6 inch display, which means that it isn’t a compact phone. Moreover, both the Galaxy S23 and S23 Ultra target two different kinds of users, but the S23 Plus is just a tag-along. Not to mention, it isn’t even that big of an upgrade to the S22 Plus mobile phone too. Let’s take a look at its specs for now.

Will have to see if Indian variant has a shipped with SD or Exynos

The Indian variants will come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 too. Samsung won't risk its flagship series now since its sales have gone down a lot and even in past, users have shown hate for Exynos chipsets. Also, no exynos variant was mentioned in the Samsung Unpacked event. So, the S23 series will run on the SD processor in India too.

Pixel 7 is better and cheaper

I would disagree with this. The Galaxy S23 series is definitely underwhelming and we expected better from Samsung, but the S23 and S23 Plus are still better than the Pixel 7. Here are a few reasons for that:
  1. All Pixel phones have problems with their portrait mode while taking pictures, while Samsung has the best portrait mode on any smartphone camera.
  2. The display on the S23 series is better and comes with a 120 Hz refresh rate too.
  3. Samsung will offer more software updates than Google.
  4. In India, Pixel phones haven't received 5G connectivity from any ISP, while Samsung phones are running 5G seamlessly.
  5. The biggest difference, the S23 series comes with the SD 8 Gen 2 processor, which is miles ahead of the Tensor G2 chipset used in the Pixel 7.
  6. Many users may prefer One UI over Pixel UI, which is debatable.
For all these reasons, the S23 and S23 Plus are still way better than the Pixel 7 as of now.
