The company has revealed the information via its own website, and it is pretty much guaranteed that the South Korean firm will launch the Galaxy S23 at its Galaxy Unpacked 2023 – Part 1 event.
According to Samsung’s website for the Colombian market, the next Galaxy Unpacked event is happening on February 1, 2023. The tagline for the event reads, “Epic moments are coming.” The promotional image also reveals the three rear cameras of the Galaxy S23 series, featuring individual rings around them, similar to what we’ve seen in the leaked renders.
As per previous reports, the Galaxy S23 series could go on sale by the second week of February 2023. Samsung may not increase the pricing of its new phones compared to the Galaxy S22 series. However, nothing can be confirmed until the South Korean firm makes it official.
