After Samsung took advantage of the start of the school year to present its foldable smartphones, eyes are now turning to the next new products that the Korean manufacturer has in stock: the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. Many rumors are already circulating on the web, but an official source has just told us a little more.
The Galaxy S23+ battery is revealed
As noticed SamMobilethe Galaxy S23+ battery has just been certified by the Korean authorities, as proven by the Safety Korea website. The component, which inherits the pretty name of EB-BS916ABY, seems to be designed to integrate the SM-S916B, the commercial reference of the Galaxy S23 +, Samsung’s large phone. The battery is produced by Ningde Amperex Technology Limited, the manufacturer that produced those of the Fold 4 and Flip 4.
But more than the battery itself, it is the timing of this famous certification that is interesting. In September 2021, a similar listing appeared in the same database and the certified battery ended up landing in the Galaxy S22+. If Samsung sticks to the same tempo as last year, it would mean that the Korean manufacturer will present its Galaxy S23 in February 2023, like the S22 in their time. Everything therefore leads us to believe that Samsung will indeed organize an in-house event at the start of the year, unless it takes advantage of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to present its new mobiles, but this no longer seems to be the trend for a few years now.
Few changes to expect
Unfortunately, the image published by Safety Korea does not reveal much about the characteristics of the Galaxy S23+. The quality of the photo does not make it possible to decipher anything. There’s a good chance the battery will be similar to the Galaxy S22+, though, as Samsung’s future phones are expected to largely retain the design and footprint of the previous generation. We already know that the dimensions of the S23 will be very close to those of the S22 and the Ultra model will retain a profile close to that of its predecessor. There is therefore no reason for the S23+ to deviate from the rule.
Those who hoped for better autonomy from future Samsung mobiles can always count on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip which should be more energy efficient than the Exynos chips to which we have had the right so far.
