The design renders and other details of both models have leaked in the past.

For selfies, there will be a 32MP front camera. The devices could feature 8GB/12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. They will boot Android 13-based One UI 5.0 out of the box. 

Samsung is also said to introduce a satellite connectivity feature, which should help users reach out to emergency services when in a no-network area.
