Hero colors for the Galaxy S23 series confirmed, S23 Ultra image sensors detailed
There’s little we don’t already know about the Galaxy S23 lineup, but a few details are still trickling in. For starters, Evan Blass has dug up images showing the hero color of each phone. These are clearly intended to drive consumers to the pre-order pages when they go live.
Hero colors for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Botanic Green is the favorite color of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. As for its smaller siblings, the Galaxy S23 prefers Cotton Flower, while the Galaxy S23+ prefers Misty Lilac. From what we’ve seen so far, the three models come in the same four colorways (the fourth being the standard Phantom Black), check out more images here. By the way, Samsung.com usually has some exclusive colorways, these four are for carriers and retailers.
Moving on to some hardware details, the screens on all three Galaxy S23 models will offer a maximum brightness of 1,750 nits. The outgoing Galaxy S22 Ultra and S22+ can also hit 1,750 nits, but the tiny S22 is limited to 1,300 nits.
Finally, a list of the image sensors that will be used by the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It is already clear that the 200MP ISOCELL HP2 will replace the 108MP HM3 in the main module. The ultra-wide switches from one 12MP sensor to another (Sony IMX563 to IMX564), the 3x and 10x telephoto modules will continue to use the same sensor as before (IMX754). And as you may have already heard, the selfie camera drops to 12MP with an ISOCELL 3LU replacing the GH1 (S23 and S23+ will presumably use the same sensor).
Image sensors: Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra • Galaxy S23 Ultra
In case you missed it, camera samples of the Galaxy S23 Ultra showed off its low-light photography capabilities earlier today.
The Galaxy S23 range will be unveiled next week and pre-orders should start immediately (well, you can already reserve a device, but it’s more a case of securing an early bird discount rather than a proper pre-order).
