Samsung just held its first Unpacked event of 2023, which brought us a few new smartphones and laptops. So in this post, we’re going to round up everything that Samsung announced at this event.
This is the Spring Unpacked, so there’s typically not a lot of surprises here. And what we’ve seen in recent years is the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Book getting announced here. And that’s exactly what we got this year. The Galaxy S23 lineup, along with the new Galaxy Book 3 lineup.
Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Samsung debuted the Galaxy S23 series today – the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra. They aren’t huge upgrades over their predecessors. The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ are essentially the same, with the difference mostly being the sizes. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is the merger of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lineup. So you’re getting a slightly different design from the other Galaxy S23 models here, and there is also S Pen support included.
