Samsung Galaxy S23 Price in Kenya

Samsung’s design language is more unified than ever, even surpassing the days of the S21 lineup and its unique camera bumps. For the Galaxy S23 series, the company looked to last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra for inspiration, dropping the Tetris-esque camera block for something far more minimal. The result is a bit of a boring year-over-year upgrade for S22 Ultra owners, but a fresh take on Samsung’s house style for all three models.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s look is nearly unchanged from its predecessor. It sports the same frosted glass back — though with some new color choices, of course — the same squared sides that serve as an echo to the Note series, and ever-so-slightly refined curved edges along the display. It’s not to say the S23 Ultra is an ugly phone, or even that it’s uninspired. Rather, it’s more of the same, a “don’t fix what ain’t broke” approach to design that is guaranteed to keep most S22 Ultra owners from feeling any jealousy or buyer’s regret.

The Galaxy S23 and S23+ are certainly the more interesting devices design-wise, though Samsung isn’t rocking the boat here either. Rather, these two devices — the smaller, more affordable choices for consumers — adopt the same camera trends set by the last two Ultra models. Last year, the company blended its module seamlessly into the frame of the device, giving both models a unique look that built on the legacy of the S21 series. This year, it’s all about protruding lens; although both phones lack the same amount of cutouts as their Ultra-sized sibling, it’s clear these three devices are part of a family.


Exciting? No, not especially. But Samsung’s design chops are so far ahead of the pack, it’s hard to argue with the choice to avoid a revolutionary look for another year. While early adopters and enthusiasts might feel disappointed by the decision to recycle this style for another year, regular folks — those who upgrade their devices every three, four, or even five years — are bound to find it as fresh and exciting as shoppers found Samsung’s last-gen models one year ago.

Samsung Galaxy S23: Specs

Those familiar shells aren’t housing some incredible new technology, either. The specs for all three phones are what you’d expect for a 2023 flagship, albeit with a big twist for international users. While Samsung has generally used Qualcomm’s top-tier chipset in North America and other various regions, much of the world relied on Samsung’s own Exynos chips to power their Galaxy experience. Unfortunately, these chips haven’t been able to keep up with the fastest Snapdragon-branded CPUs, something that becomes more obvious with each passing year.


So, for the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung is doing something drastic. Not only is it ditching Exynos for Qualcomm, but it’s also doing so in style. All three models will be powered by a special Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, a souped-up model made especially for Samsung. It keeps everything that made the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 so impressive in last year’s debut, but with a higher 3.36Ghz clock speed for the main Cortex X3 core.

Make no mistake, the expansion of Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S-series phones is a big deal. But outside of this change, the S23 lineup’s specs are about as unsurprising as the design. We’re once again looking at three screen sizes — 6.1″, 6.6″, and 6.8″, respectively — and they sound as impressive as anything Samsung has ever launched. Each AMOLED panel is running at 120Hz and is capable of hitting 1,750 nits of brightness outdoors. The S23 and S23+ screens are 1080p, of course, while the S23 Ultra sports a 1440p QHD display.


Unfortunately for fans of small phones, the Galaxy S23 is getting the short end of the stick when it comes to specs. While the two larger phones include 45W charging and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage in its base configuration, the S23 starts with just 128GB of slower UFS 3.1 storage, and can only charge at 25W. At 3,900mAh, it also sports the smallest battery of the bunch, compared to the 4,700mAh and 5,000mAh batteries in the larger phones.

All three phones are IP68 water resistant, support modern connectivity standards like Wi-Fi 6E and mmWave, include ultrasonic fingerprint sensors and face recognition for biometric authentication, and are protected by Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass Victus 2. And of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the S23 Ultra’s S Pen, which continues to keep the Note’s legacy alive and well.

Samsung Galaxy S23: Software

One UI 5.1 will ship on Samsung’s latest series first before it rolls out to older models like last year’s Z-series and all the various S22 models. It’s based on Android 13, but we’ve yet to get a lot of detail about what One UI 5.1 will offer. Rumors suggested One UI 5.1 will include some small quality-of-life changes, including a new battery widget for all of your connected devices, AR filters, changes to Samsung Notes for simultaneous editing, and more. Google and Samsung are also working on a streamlined method for setting up your new phone using Fast Pair, and it should show up first on the Galaxy S23 series.

Samsung Galaxy S23: Cameras

Forgot last year’s 108MP sensor — this year, Samsung’s largest phone is rocking its largest yet. At 200MP, the S23 Ultra should be capable of capturing immense detail throughout a scene, though you’ll need to adjust your settings first. As you’d expect, the company is relying on pixel binning to translate its massive shots into 50MP or 12MP images, which should massively improve low-light photography in even the darkest of situations.


There are plenty of other advancements coming from this next-gen hardware too, including 8K video recording at 30FPS — up from 24FPS on last year’s phones — and improved object-based AI detection.

As for the smaller S23 and S23+, Samsung has kept the same lens lineup as last year’s phones: a 50MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide lens capable of 120-degree shots, and a 10MP telephoto lens capable of 3x optical zoom and up to 30x digital zoom. The selfie cam has been upgraded though, moving from 10MP to the same 12MP lens on the Ultra with Super HDR support for higher-quality shots.


Finally, pro photographers, take note: all three models are getting Expert RAW settings built right into the software once the app is downloaded, something you’ve been begging Samsung to add for year
