Hype Play: A first look at the new Galaxy S23 Series

There’s a new drop in the world of smartphones. Yesterday Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23, marking a new era of Galaxy’s ultimate premium phone experience. The new gadgets come with plenty of innovative features such as the Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, next-level gaming performance, and more eco-conscious design.

In a Samsung Galaxy-first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a massively upgraded Adaptive Pixel 200MP sensor that captures moments with incredible precision. It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.

Additional camera advancements include:

  • Low-light, close-up, or in situations that would normally create a blur, images are sharp with doubled optical image stabiliser (OIS) angles in all directions, from 1.5 to 3 degrees.
  • Photo and video reflect a stunning level of detail with Galaxy’s second-generation Adaptive Pixel[ii] sensor and Samsung’s updated pixel binning technology for Galaxy S23 Ultra — now with 200MP, 50MP, and 12MP output options.
  • Videos feel more cinematic with enhanced 8K video at 30fps with a wider angle.
  • Advanced, object-based AI analyses each detail in the frame, even down to minute facial features such as hair and eyes, to carefully reflect a person’s dynamic characteristics.
  • For an even more enhanced video experience, the new 360 Audio Recording feature[iii] on Galaxy Buds2 Pro creates multi-dimensional sound.

Premium performance for the future of mobile gaming
