From US$799.99: Samsung Galaxy S23 price leak arrives as part of alleged Verizon S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra internal spec sheet
In a potentially astonishing blunder from Verizon, it appears the US prices, pre-order date, and launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series have been leaked. All the information comes as part of a slideshow or datasheet that is marked as “Samsung Diamond (DARK)", with “Diamond” being the codename for the Galaxy S23 lineup. The regular Galaxy S23 is revealed as “DM1”, the Galaxy S23+ is “DM2”, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra is “DM3”. Screenshots are posted below, but here are the potentially juiciest parts for potential buyers, the supposed starting prices:
- Samsung Galaxy S23: US$799.99
- Samsung Galaxy S23+: US$999.99
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: US$1,199.99
An announcement date of 1 February is also shown and this is apparently the same date for pre-orders. There is a Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date of February 17 included, but it is important to point out here that the dates and times are apparently unconfirmed estimates. Key specifications are shown for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra, and it seems that the expected 1 TB variant of the S23 Ultra will not be initially provided by this particular carrier.
Some of the main Samsung Galaxy S23 selling points appear to be nightography or low-light photography, the presence of a Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen, enhanced connectivity with products such as the Samsung Tab S7 FE, Galaxy Watch5, and Galaxy Buds2 Pro, and the inclusion of 5G UW (C-band and mmWave) connectivity support. The S23 Ultra’s 200 MP main camera is once again confirmed as are the four model colors of Phantom Black, Cream, Green, and Lavender.
While many Samsung Galaxy S23 price leaks of late have hinted at price hikes spreading across the globe for all markets, it looks like customers in the US may enjoy the same S23 launch prices as the respective members of the Galaxy S22 series. It is still important to take this leak with a bit of skepticism though, as sheets like this can easily be created by those who simply want to contribute to the Galaxy S23 hype train.
