One of the key specifications of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ phones has apparently been confirmed, and it might be seen as something of a baffling choice for some fans. While the Galaxy S23 series will supposedly be treated to upgrades like a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and up to a 200 MP camera sensor, the RAM amount will remain unchanged.

The noted leaker Ice universe had been providing some small fresh details about the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. While one post by the tipster has concerned itself about a somewhat specious video-recording upgrade, another has focused on the RAM amount coming to the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ models. It appears both devices will be restricted to 8 GB of memory, with the source claiming this is a “100% confirmation”.

While 8 GB of memory for a smartphone is not necessarily a bad thing, with Apple even considering 6 GB as sufficient for its iPhone 14 range, there will be many who will be disappointed that this is an area that Samsung has seemingly decided not to bother changing. The Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22+ smartphones also came with 8 GB RAM, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra was offered with either 8 GB or 12 GB of memory. The latter amounts might also turn up as options for the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

However, while Ice universe has seemingly bemoaned this fact, stating that “8 GB can easily fill up” for those either gaming or involved in some heavy multi-tasking on their smartphone, some of his followers don’t seem too disconcerted about Samsung not offering a RAM increase for the Galaxy S23 or Galaxy S23+. It’s expected that the 2023 Galaxy S flagships will utilize fast LPDDR5X RAM, with faster memory making up for the unaltered amount.
