Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will share the same design.

The upcoming S23 series models will get some design changes compared to the S22 series. We say so based on the leaked design renders of the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus. Let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S23 series design renders leaked ahead of the launch.

Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus Design Renders

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus design renders have leaked months before its launch. The renders uploaded by SmartPrix suggest that the phone is getting a redesign on the back. There is no camera island on the back. Instead, the phone features three individual cutouts for the triple-camera setup. The camera sensors are placed vertically one below the other. While the camera sensor cutouts protrude, the LED flash module is flush on the rear panel.

At the front, there is a hole-punch cutout at the top centre. The bezels around the 6.6-inch display are fairly thin. The report, citing tipster OnLeaks, also revealed that the phone will be slightly bigger compared to the S22 Plus. It will measure 157.7 x 76.1 x 7.6mm compared to the S22 Plus, which measures 157.4 x 75.8 x 7.6mm.

The vanilla S23 has the same design but varies in terms of dimensions. According to a Digit report, the vanilla model will be slightly bigger – roughly 146.3 x 70.8 x 7.6 mm in size – compared to the Samsung Galaxy S22. It will continue to sport a 6.1-inch display and support a 120Hz refresh rate.

The rest of the design elements are the same. The phone’s USB Type-C port and the speaker grille are at the bottom, whereas the power and volume buttons are on the right side.

Other details of the S23 and S23 Plus rumoured so far include a 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP telephoto camera. It is likely to feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC or an Exynos 2300 chipset depending on the region of its launch. More details about the phones should surface online in the coming days.
