We have good news if you are ready to get yourself an awesome new Samsung Galaxy device. Today is Samsung day! The company took to the stage for its first Galaxy Unpacked event of 2023 and introduced many new products. From an affordable Galaxy S23 to the powerful Galaxy S23 Ultra with a 200MP camera, along with a new Galaxy Book 3 Ultra.

We had a good idea of ​​what was coming thanks to countless rumors, leaks, and previous releases. Unsurprisingly, Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 lineup of smartphones is relatively similar to last year’s model, with notable improvements to the processor, storage, and camera systems.

This is a year-over-year evolutionary update of a tried and tested design, not a completely new version. That’s not to say there weren’t any big surprises, though, like the epic new 200MP camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra or the sleek Galaxy Book 3 Ultra running Windows 11.
