The Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ more or less sport the same specs, although the ‘Plus’ model features a larger battery and screen. However, the big differences come with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
First off, the ‘Ultra’ model features a higher screen resolution, while the panel can also scale between 1Hz to 120Hz as opposed to 48Hz to 120Hz on the vanilla and Plus S23 models. Moreover, the Galaxy S23 Ultra also gets stylus support and noticeable curvature on the screen.
While all three phones use the same custom version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the ‘Ultra’ model gets a little more RAM. Moreover, it also has a bigger battery than both the S23 and S23+. While all three phones support 10W wireless charging, the vanilla S23 is limited to 25W wired charging as opposed to the 45W on the S23 Ultra and S23 Plus.
Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has a new 200 MP camera sensor at the helm, which is a set up from last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, the Galaxy S23 Ultra also has the second 10 MP telephoto camera that is capable of 10x optical zoom.
On the other hand, the S23 and S23 Plus feature the same 50 MP primary camera from last year. It is worth noting that Samsung has added new camera features, while also making improvements to older ones on the S23 line-up.
