Samsung Galaxy S23 Series Smartphones Launched With ‘Ultra Level’ Specs
Android smartphone enthusiasts love to flaunt spec sheets. The numbers keep on increasing every year but Samsung seems to have reached the Ultra level. The South Korean tech giant showcased the latest Galaxy S23 Series which include the Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+ and S23 smartphones. The star of the show is, of course, the Galaxy S23 Ultra that comes with a 200MP camera, toughest screen and the latest customised Snapdragon chipset that supports superior gaming features like Ray Tracing.
For the record, Ray Tracing is available mostly in console and PC games. We can expect mobile game developers to introduce Android games with Ray Tracing later this year. So, what’s Ray Tracing? Well, it’s a light rendering technique that makes games appear more realistic with multiple sources of light treated differently.
With improved low light photography features, better battery life and improved performance, Samsung is calling the S23 Ultra the most advanced smartphone it has ever created. Not to forget, there’s the S-Pen Stylus as well and the S23 Ultra can also connect to PCs with the known DeX mode.
“The entire Galaxy S23 series is the new standard-bearer of trustworthy premium smartphone experiences. We’re on a mission to redefine peak performance by bringing together powerful, lasting innovations and sustainability,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics.
Apart from the S23 Ultra, there’s the S23+ and S23 as well. Both the smartphones come with the same chipset but the dimensions, display, camera and battery life are different when compared to the S23 Ultra.
