What’s New on the Samsung Galaxy S23?

There’s good reason to be excited about this year’s Samsung Galaxy S models. The tech giant hasn’t reinvented the wheel with its latest flagship phone lineup but there are significant updates to the devices’ displays, cameras, and performance.

The new Samsung phones were launched on February 17th. Prior to the release date, customers were able take advantage of a preorder deal and upgrade to the next level of storage options at no additional cost as well as qualify for up to $100 in credit. The Galaxy phones and their compatible ROKFORM S23 cases are currently in stock and shipping. 

Find out what to expect on the new Galaxy S23 below:

1. Upgraded Screen

In terms of screen size, Samsung sticks to the same dimensions as the Galaxy S22 series. The standard S23 boasts a 6.1” screen, the S23 Plus model has a 6.6” screen, and there’s a large 6.8” display on the S23 Ultra. Each model comes with new Gorilla Glass Victus 2 which is more durable and scratch-resistant.

For complete protection, however, discover ROKFORM’s phone cases designed specifically for the Galaxy S23. With reinforced corners and tested-tough materials, our rugged cases can withstand drops of up to 6 feet. Each case has built-in magnets and a patented twist-lock system to secure your phone to compatible mounts for hands-free use.

2. Serious Camera Specs

The camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is a game changer. The previous generation’s 108 MP main camera has been upgraded to a whopping 200 MP sensor for sharper details, even from far away. The other rear cameras and telephoto lens are carried over from the S22 as the 100x optical zoom still outperforms its iPhone rivals.

Software updates like optical image stabilization and the ability to shoot in expert RAW mode greatly enhance the S23’s camera system. Users will enjoy improved video recording, shutter speed, and portrait mode. The new Samsung Galaxy S series brings refined performance in all lighting conditions, from sunny day shots to night mode for low light night shots.

With all the photographic technology on the front and back of the phone, it’s a good idea to use a rugged phone case in case of accidental drops. ROKFORM’s S23 cases are built to protect the camera bump that protrudes out of the rear-facing cameras, a spot that can be particularly vulnerable to impact damage. With 360-degree coverage, the heavy-duty cases protect the front side of the phone too, including the selfie camera and large screen.

3. Performance Improvements

S23 users can also expect major advances across performance, battery capacity, and charging. Every S23 model comes equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset for quicker performance. Called the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, it’s good news for users who need fast processing speeds. There’s 8 GB of RAM inside each of the mobile devices with a 12 GB RAM option available on the S23 Ultra.

Go longer between charges with the increased battery capacity of the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus. Both models receive a bump of 200 mAh battery power compared to the S22 Plus and its smaller battery, while the S23 Ultra retains its 5,000 mAh pack. The improvements also deliver fast-charging speeds up to 25-watts on the entry-level S23 and 45-watts on the S23+ and S23 Ultra models.

 ROKFORM RokLock Wireless Charger and Windshield Suction Mount

The Galaxy S23 supports full wireless charging across the board for cable-free refueling. Its wireless charging operates at 15-watts, matching the specs of its main competitor, the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The easiest way to charge your S23 on the go is with the RokLock Wireless Charger designed for use inside your car or truck. Securely attach the charger to the ROKFORM windshield mount or car dash mount  to keep your phone within reach and in sight while driving.
