Galaxy S23 Ultra offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, tailored for nearly any lighting conditions and engineered to render incredible detail. Improved Nightography capabilities transform how the Galaxy S series optimizes photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions. Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and colour tone.
In a Samsung Galaxy-first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures with incredible precision. It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.[ Samsung’s updated pixel binning technology for Galaxy S23 Ultra provides 200MP, 50MP, and 12MP output options.] The Galaxy S23 series introduces fast autofocus and its first Super HDR selfie camera, jumping from 30fps to 60fps, for noticeably better front-facing images and videos.

Low-light or in situations that would normally create a blur, videos are stable with doubled optical image stabilizer (OIS) angles in all directions.[ Applied on Galaxy S23 Ultra only.]
Videos feel more cinematic with enhanced 8K video[ 8K videos can be played in 8K resolution only on devices supporting 8K resolution.] at 30 frames per second with a wider angle.
Advanced, object-based AI analyzes each detail in the frame, even down to minute facial features such as hair and eyes, to carefully reflect a person’s dynamic characteristics.
For an even more enhanced video experience, the new 360 Audio Recording feature[ The feature will be available on Galaxy Buds2 Pro paired with a Samsung Galaxy smartphone running One UI 5.0 or above with LE Audio support, including Galaxy S23 series.

On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the iconic Samsung Galaxy camera also gets an upgraded look. The contour housing has been removed, marking a new era of essential Galaxy design that makes the entire series stand out.
The Galaxy S23 is made using even more[ Galaxy S23 Ultra increases the presence of recycled materials from six internal components in the Galaxy S22 Ultra to twelve internal and external components. Recycled materials include plastic, glass and aluminum] recycled materials than the Galaxy S22 series, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and recycled glass, and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets[ We teamed up with Royal DSM, an organization that gathers discarded fishing nets from along the coast of the Indian Ocean and transforms them into polyamide resin pellets. We then worked with Hanwha Compound to upcycle and optimize these resin pellets into a high-performance material for use in our Galaxy technology.], water barrels and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles.
The new S series is the first to market Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, adding heightened durability for long-term use and designed with an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content[ Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2 is incorporated into front screen and back cover of Galaxy 23 series.]. Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone comes in redesigned packaging box made with 100 per cent recycled paper.

Galaxy S23 series met the UL 110 which is the UL Environmental Standard for Mobile Phones Sustainability], meaning that the product has been certified for reduced environmental impact.
Secure and private experiences are the foundation of the Galaxy S23 series. Every smartphone comes with Samsung’s end-to-end Samsung Knox protection, which has received more government and industry certifications than any other mobile device, platform, or solution on the market. The Security and Privacy Dashboard on Samsung Galaxy gives users full visibility over who has access to their data and how it’s being used.
For an added layer of security, Knox Vault, which was first introduced on the Galaxy S21 series, protects critical information on the Galaxy S23 series by isolating it from the rest of the device, including the OS, for added protection against vulnerabilities.
The Galaxy S23 series comes in four nature-inspired matte hues: Phantom Black, Cream, Green and Lavender[ Availability may vary by market.
