We know that the forthcoming S23 series models will take a page from the current-gen S22 Ultra’s design playbook, with each lens sticking out individually instead of the separate camera island we saw on the vanilla S22 and S22 Plus. However, what we didn’t see in the renders was these phones will have a less curvy frame than last-gen models, going for a more angular body and rounded corners.
Samsung Galaxy S23 series design changes
Samsung S23 and Samsung S23 Plus
From the images, it can be tricky to tell the standard Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus models apart. Their design is akin in every aspect – they both have flat sides and front panels, and both house a triple rear camera setup. The only noticeable factor would be the size of the smartphones, with the Plus model being more prominent than the base unit.
If you thought differentiating the vanilla from the Plus variant was challenging, check out the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The next highest-end non-foldable Samsung device for next year looks just like its predecessor. The follow-up of the Galaxy S22 Ultra retains the same camera layout, and the sides -which are now flatter – will still merge into the curved display from a curved back panel.
That said, these are dummy units, not official pictures from Samsung. Thus, we will have to wait until the February Galaxy launch event to know the actual design of the smartphones.
