Superior performance paves the way for the future of mobile gaming

The desire of game creators and players to push the boundaries and constantly create new ideas of what is possible requires technology that exceeds expectations. Together, Samsung and Qualcomm have optimised the Samsung Galaxy experience with the all-new Snapdragon ® 8 Gen 2 mobile platform for the Galaxy, which delivers the best efficiency and performance in Samsung Galaxy phones ever and the fastest Snapdragon currently available. Meanwhile, on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the 5,000mAh battery powers a larger camera than the Galaxy S22 Ultra without increasing the size of the device.

The newly designed processor microarchitecture increases the processing capabilities of the Galaxy S23 series by approximately 30 per cent compared to the Galaxy S22 series. Capturing stunning low-light photos requires millions of calculations per second, so the highly efficient NPU architecture in the Samsung Galaxy has been optimised by 49 per cent to balance performance and power while using an artificial intelligence algorithm to help users capture epic photos and videos. One of the most important improvements in the Galaxy S23 series is the optimised graphics processor, which is about 41 per cent faster compared to the Galaxy 22 series and designed specifically for demanding users.

Users will be able to see noticeably more realistic renderings of scenes thanks to technology that simulates and tracks every light beam. In addition, Samsung's vapour cooling chamber, which is now larger and is present on all Galaxy S23 series models, ensures that your gaming marathon will last and last. All this power is the basis for the Galaxy S23 Ultra's expansive 17-centimetre (6.8-inch) display with bezels and reduced curvature, creating a larger and flatter surface for the best visual experience on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. The unique Samsung Galaxy Enhanced comfort feature allows users to adjust colour tones and contrast levels, reducing eye strain from browsing the screen at night. The Vision booster function now adjusts at three brightness levels instead of two to combat brightness and glare in daylight.

A secure and private experience is the foundation of the Galaxy S23 series. Every smartphone comes with comprehensive Samsung Knox protection, which has received more government and industry certifications than any other mobile device, platform or solution on the market.

With a single glance, you can check if your personal data is at risk and receive simple prompts to change your settings for a safer experience. Users can also decide which apps and programs have access to their data and how they can use it.
