Galaxy S23 Ultra Specifications: Great on the inside and out!
The Galaxy S23 Ultra features a massive 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ certification, and 1750 nits peak brightness. Living up to the expectation of integrating the newest chipset in the market, Samsung packs the latest Snapdragon Gen 2 chipset on all three models of the S23 lineup. Whereas the device runs on Android 13 and One UI 5.1 for smooth software and user experience right out of the box.
As far as protection is concerned, Samsung’s 2023 Android flagship comes with an Armor Aluminum Frame which is said to withstand tough drops and scratches. In addition, the front and back of the device are backed by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, which is an upgrade as compared to Gorilla Glass Victus+ we saw on S22 Ultra. Like last year, the Galaxy S23 series also comes with IP68 certification which suggests that the device is dust-resistant and water-resistant. It can be submerged in water up to 1.5m for 30 minutes. So, if you are heading to a pool party, don’t forget to carry to shoot underwater videos. That’s not all, this flagship smartphone comes with
5G, Wi-Fi 6E compatibility, and an S-Pen.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Camera: Welcome to the world of MEGAPIXELS!
The Galaxy S23 Ultra comes with a quad-camera setup on the back featuring a 200-megapixel primary camera with Laser AF, PDAF, and improved Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) features. The rest of the three sensors include 10 megapixels periscope telephoto lens and a telephoto lens with common dual-pixel PDAF and OIS features. Plus both the sensors come with 10x & 3x optical zoom, respectively. Further, you’ll find a 12 megapixels lens for ultrawide shots. To remind you, we previously reported that Samsung is planning something big for its upcoming flagship smartphone.

Time will tell whether the 200 MP camera delivers as per the expectations and claims made by Samsung.
