The Galaxy s23 series is made of a wider variety of recycled materials than any of its predecessors. This includes recycled aluminium, glass, and plastic from discarded fishing nets, bottles, and barrels.

Besides that, this series is also the first to come with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on its front and back, offering durability for long-term use.

The S23 also does away with the protruding cut-out that wrapped around the camera lenses of S22 and S22+.

S23 Ultra has 200MP camera sensor

When it comes to the new phones’ specifications, the star of the show has to be the camera.

All S23 phones come the a Super HDR front-facing camera that captures videos at 60 frames per second, which is twice that of the S22. This will produce better selfies and videos.

The S23 Ultra also comes with a 200MP sensor — the highest pixel count in any Samsung smartphone and one of the highest on the market today.

Samsung said that the epic camera will allow users to capture cinematic videos, even in low light conditions.

In tandem with the unveiling of the S23, they have launched an Expert RAW app that allows users to capture and edit in RAW and JPEG.

The S23 series also has Dynamic AMOLED screens that run at 120Hz.

And with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, the phones’ GPU performance is said to be 41% faster than the S22 series.

Samsung promises to offer a premium experience that includes groundbreaking AI, future-ready mobile gaming features, and powerfully sustained game play with the world’s fastest graphics.
