The Samsung Galaxy S23 The series will apparently run much cooler than its predecessor, among other improvements.
According to a recent tweet by tipster Ahmed Quaider (via SamMobile), the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will each have “enhanced cooling systems.”
The tipster claims that “Samsung has paid a lot of attention to this point during heavy use,” referring to the fact that the Galaxy S23 line has had throttling issues.
Back in March 2022, it was discovered that Samsung’s Game Optimization Service (GOS) was exceeding its powers and reduced productivity too aggressively – a telltale sign that the company was struggling with the heat output of its devices.
This led to various performance issues, including reaching a peak screen refresh rate of 120Hz.
In addition to the Galaxy S23 lineup running cooler, the three new phones are also said to further increase the peak brightness of their AMOLED displays. Even the vanilla Galaxy S23 has a peak brightness of 1750 nits.
Finally, the tipper claims that the regular Galaxy S23 is expected to see a bump in battery capacity to 3,900mAh from the Galaxy S22’s 3,700mAh. The Galaxy S23 Plus, meanwhile, could get a 4,700mAh cell, compared to the Galaxy S22 Plus’ 4,900mAh.
Coupled with these improved thermal features, we’re hoping for decent battery life from the compact Galaxy S23.
We may not see similar gains in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, although the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 5,000mAh battery may not need an upgrade.
Meanwhile, don’t expect an increase in the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 45W charging speed. Qwaider claims it remains the same.
