Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date leaks
- Various leakers assert the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date could be on February 1, 2023.
- That would likely be for the US, meaning it would be February 2 for most of the rest of the world.
- The phones would probably hit store shelves about two weeks later.
According to three prominent leakers, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event might have leaked. This event would see the launch of the next Galaxy S flagships, which we expect to be called the Galaxy S23 series.
The leak started with Ice Universe, who simply tweeted “February 1.” The leaker then followed that up with a tweet of “Galaxy Unpacked.” Chiming in, frequent leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka OnLeaks) responded with a GIF affirming Ice’s statement to be true. This suggests both leakers agree the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date could be February 1.
After this, another prominent leaker — Max Jambor — tweeted that the launch would be on February 2 for the rest of the world, suggesting the February 1 date would be for the US. Hemmerstoffer, once again, tweeted a GIF supporting Jambor.
It would seem three prominent leakers all agree that the Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date could be February 1, 2023, in the US and February 2 for most of the rest of the world. If Samsung goes with its usual methods, the in-store availability of the S23 series would be about two weeks later.
Samsung Galaxy S23 launch: Busy month
If this ends up being true, February 2023 will be busy. We already know that OnePlus plans to launch the OnePlus 11 and some new earbuds on February 7. That will mean two high-profile phone series would launch within just days of one another.
The Galaxy S23 series is expected to be an iterative jump from the current Galaxy S22 series. We expect the camera modules on the back of the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus to be more similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra and for the Galaxy S23 Ultra to remain mostly unchanged. The biggest rumor is that all phones in the series, regardless of global location, could feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which would mean no Exynos variants. This would be the first time in years for that, if it does actually happen.
