Samsung’s Galaxy S23 is about five months away, but we already have some idea of what the device will look like. The ever-reliable OnLeaks has a new batch of renders for the device. These are usually founded on the CAD files provided to case and accessory manufacturers. While some little pieces, like the arrangement of logos, might be off, the main components and overall design should be correct.
OnLeaks has a prototype render of the base model S23, and by looking at it, the significant change is that it’s doing away with the rear camera bump. The S21 and S22 had a big inflated block extending out of the corner, but this S23 render reveals only three bare camera lenses popping out of the back. This layout change would bring the galaxy’s lineup base model (and presumably “Plus” variant also) phones in line with the S22 Ultra, which has an identical lens-only camera protrusion. The S22 Ultra’s camera lenses looked fabulous in person, but like any other corner camera layout, the bulge makes the phone unstable if it’s lying on a flat surface.
The report has the phone at approximately 146.3×70.8×7.6 mm with a 6.1-inch screen. It should come with Qualcomm’s next Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 120 Hz display, and hopefully, an uprise for the tiny 3700 mAh battery the S22 shipped with this year.
By the way, Onleaks also published S23 Ultra renders, but that phone looks almost similar to the S22 Ultra, complete with a returning S-Pen. Both of these devices should be out early next year.
