Samsung's highly anticipated Galaxy S23 smartphones were finally announced officially today. The phones come with a slew of practical upgrades that make them a strong contender for spots on the best phones of 2023 list. Despite numerous rumors to the contrary, the devices are priced the same as last year, and you can save big by pre-ordering them through Best Buy.
Pre-orders will get you free storage upgrade, gift card, and trade-in credit
All the models are powered by a custom version of the premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Their displays feature the Gorilla Glass Victus for better protection against accidental drops on hard surfaces. They also get a new 12MP front-facing camera.
The standard and the Plus models come with a triple camera array with a 50MP main shooter, 12MP ultrawide snapper, and a 10MP telephoto unit.
The Galaxy S23 sports a 6.1 inches OLED panel and has a bigger 3,900mAh battery than its predecessor. The base Galaxy S23 model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs $799 but Best Buy is currently offering double the storage for the same price, so you can essentially save $60 by ordering it right now.
The Galaxy S23 Plus has a bigger 6.6 inches display and a 4,700mAh battery and Samsung has doubled the starting storage, meaning you get 256GB instead of 128GB for the same price of $999.99. To match the Korean giant's generosity, Best Buy is offering a free storage upgrade, meaning you can nab the highest-end 512GB model for $999.99 instead of $1,119.99, which translates to a saving of $120.
And lastly, we have got the big daddy of the range, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which has retired the 108MP sensor in favor of an even more impressive 200MP sensor that can take highly detailed shots. The main camera also features better optical image stabilization for countering shakes. It's accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide unit, and two 10MP telephoto cameras with 3x and 10x optical zoom.
Other features include a huge 6.8 inches OLED screen with flatter edges than the last-gen model, a 5,000mAh battery, and a built in S Pen stylus.
This model also offers twice the storage for the same price and if you get it through Best Buy during the pre-order period, you get thrice the storage as the S22 Ultra for the same price. That means that the 512GB Galaxy S23 Ultra will cost you $1,199.99 instead of $1,379.99 after a hefty discount of $180.
Whichever model you buy, Best Buy will also throw in a gift card worth up to $100 and total savings can climb as high as $780 if you agree to trade an old, used phone in. Pre-orders are open now and the phones will begin shipping on February 17.
