Samsung Galaxy S23 Series Vs. Galaxy S22 Series: Head-To-Head

New Camera Capabilities, New Processor

Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 series is giving the flagship phone lineup a substantial upgrade with a focus on improved camera capabilities and a faster processor.

Unveiled earlier this month at the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, the South Korean electronics giant believes the photo-taking bona fides of the three Galaxy S23 devices will soon become the envy of those with other phones. This is evidenced by a new ad showcasing the S23 Ultra’s improved Nightography capabilities and a new object-detection engine, which have people asking, “Can you send me that?”

The biggest upgrade hitting all three devices is Qualcomm’s new custom processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy. All three devices support Samsung’s new One UI 5.1 user interface and run on the Android 13 operating system right out of the box.

Elsewhere, the S23 Ultra gets the biggest camera upgrade in the form of a 200-megapixel wide sensor that significantly increases the resolution of photos. But the S23 and S23+ get other upgrades, such as a new 12-megapixel front-facing camera sensor as well as the ability to take selfie videos at 60 frames per second and 8K videos with the rear-facing sensors like the S23 Ultra can.

What follows is a breakdown of how the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 phones compare to the models of the last generation: the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22. This includes a comparison of the chipsets, cameras, displays, form factors, connectivity features, memory options, batteries and other specs.
