Samsung Galaxy S23 series will be launching in Q1 of 2023. The design of the devices has been revealed earlier. Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra will follow the same design language as the S22 Ultra. That means the contour cut design will be gone for good. Now, another important detail has been confirmed about the S23 Series.
Snapdragon All The Way
Qualcomm has officially confirmed that its share in the S23 series will be going global. Previously, they had a 75% share while the rest was occupied by Exynos. This is what their official statement said;
“So from a March quarter perspective, you’re right, the benefit from the Samsung launch OF the new phone would be in the in kind of the second half of the March quarter. So it comes in towards the end of the quarter, but that will be an advantage, whereas our share from 75% in G S22 goes up to global share in G S23.” – Akash Palkhiwala (Qualcomm CFO)
Furthermore, the CEO also confirmed that they are entering into a long-term partnership with Samsung. It will see Qualcomm chipsets in Samsung handsets globally.
“In handsets, we entered into a new multiyear agreement with Samsung, expanding the use of Snapdragon platforms for future premium Samsung Galaxy products globally.” – Cristiano Renno Amon (Qualcomm CEO)
Overview Of The S23 Series
I wasn’t a fan when Samsung ditched the contour-cut design on the S22 Ultra. Moreover, the individual lenses catch a lot of dust between them. The Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus look more like a Galaxy A32. The camera bump melting into the sides was iconic and people recognized that it was a flagship Samsung device at first glance. However, it will look better with more premium materials and finishes. The use of Snapdragon 8 Gen2 over all regions is a more than welcome change. YouTube content creators won’t be happy though. Exynos vs Snapdragon comparisons were a hot thing.
