Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra support UWB

It is a common practice for smartphone manufacturers to have multiple different models in the same series. Generally speaking, the basic model of a series of smartphones is not only the smallest in size and weight but also has a certain degree of reduction in configuration. According to previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy S23 128GB version uses UFS 3.1 flash memory, and all other versions use UFS 4.0 flash memory. Recently, Twitter user @Tech_Reve exposed more information about the three models of the Galaxy S23 series.

Both the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra support UWB (Ultra Wideband), but the Galaxy S23 does not. In fact, Samsung has adopted the same approach in the Galaxy S22 series. Only the Galaxy S22+ and above models support UWB. In addition, the Galaxy S22 only supports WiFi 6, and the Galaxy S22+ and above models support WiFi 6E. In contrast, the entire Galaxy S23 series supports WiFi 6E.

The entire Galaxy S22 series uses Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+, the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ use Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses Victus 2.

Corning Victus 2 was released in December 2022. While continuing the scratch resistance of the previous generation, it also provides better drop resistance on rough surfaces. In lab tests, the Victus 2 was able to withstand a 1-meter drop to a concrete surface and a 2-meter drop to an asphalt surface. Victus 2 also takes into account the current trend of smartphones getting bigger and heavier, providing better protection.

Like the Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S23 supports 25W Samsung super accelerated charging, and the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra support 45W. As in the previous practice, Samsung has also added the exclusive color of Samsung to each model of the Galaxy S23 series.
