Galaxy Event: All You Need to Know About the Samsung S23

On February 1, Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S23 series at its Galaxy Unpacked event. The Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra are expected to be part of the range, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC under the hood.

According to 9to5Google, the Galaxy S23 trio will be powered by a modified Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with a faster clock speed.

According to the publication, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 used in the Galaxy S23 series smartphones will be called “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy” and will have a clock speed of up to 3.36GHz instead of 3.2GHz (Prime core) on the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (SM8550-AB) seen on the iQOO 11, nubia Red Magic 8 Pro, and a few other phones.

The rest of the features of this customized Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 are believed to be virtually the same as the ordinary version, which means the Prime core will be accompanied by four Performance cores clocked at up to 2.8GHz and three Efficiency cores clocked at up to 2GHz.

Having said that, it’s uncertain whether Samsung would use the “Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy” branding on a large scale or limit it to the Unpacked event.

Samsung has not yet revealed the specifications of the Galaxy S23 lineup, but recent leaks concerning the S23 series have left nothing to the imagination.
