It is unknown if the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus would also get the same fingerprint scanning technology.

All three phones are also said to feature Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon flagship, which could be called the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. More details of the Galaxy S23 series will be shared as and when available.
