Samsung Galaxy S23

There are three different phones to choose from in the Galaxy S23 range: the Galaxy S23 (with a 6.1″ screen), the Galaxy S23+ (with a 6.6″ screen) and the Galaxy S23 Ultra (with a 6.8″ screen).

If you’re looking for the most powerful device with the latest cutting-edge specs, the real highlight this year is the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It has been upgraded with a 200-megapixel Pro-Grade camera.

There’s also an S Pen for precision editing and taking handwritten notes, along with a super-sharp and vivid Quad HD+ screen.
