Next week we’ll finally witness the unveiling of the Galaxy S23 series alongside the Galaxy Book3 laptops. But for now, it’s back to regular leaks as we recap the last week’s stories.
The Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will all be slightly more expensive than their predecessors were (only the Galaxy S23+’ starting Indian price is lower than last year’s S22+ was but that’s unofficial).
We saw an unboxing of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which only reaffirmed what we already knew – the phone comes without a charger or cable. We also got some camera samples, showcasing the Night mode capabilities of the 200MP sensor, and the zoom abilities of the 3x and 10x cameras. A few 4K and 8K videos completed the camera leaks.
Corning confirmed that the Galaxy S23 series will pioneer Gorilla Glass Victus 2.
Motorola announced a whopping 5 phones this week. The more interesting of the bunch, the Moto G73 and Moto G53, have 5G, 120Hz displays, 50MP cameras, and 5,000mAh batteries. The Moto G73 will be available for €300 in a single configuration (8/256GB). The Moto G53 will be cheaper at €250, this is with 4/128GB memory, which is the only option currently listed on Motorola’s official site.
The Moto G23 and Moto G13 share the same 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, as well as the same 50MP main camera on the back. Both also have 5,000mAh batteries. Moto G23 comes in Matte Charcoal, Pearl White and Steel Blue colors and is priced at €230 in Europe. Moto G13 is available in Matte Charcoal, Blue Lavender and Rose Gold colors with a retail of €180.
The Moto E13 has a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD of 60Hz refresh rate, a 5,000mAh battery, and runs Android 13 (Go edition). It costs €120.
OnePlus will show off the OnePlus 11, OnePlus 11R, as well as the OnePlus Pad, the OnePlus Buds 2 Pro, the OnePlus Keyboard, and the OnePlus Q2 Pro 65-inch TV on February 7.
