As the launch of the Samsung Galaxy 23 series draws closer, more leaks keep pouring in – and the latest teaser for these flagship phones comes in the form of images of dummy units of the devices that have been leaked online.
Posted to slash leaks (opens in new tab) (over SamMobile (opens in new tab)), the images of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus give us an idea of the dimensions of the phones and what the cameras on the back will look like. These dummy units were built to match schematics leaked by Samsung, for example, or sent to case manufacturers.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra isn’t here, and it’s expected to have a slightly different look than the other two models in the range – from what we’ve heard so far, it sounds like the phone is very similar to the Samsung will see Galaxy S22 Ultra.
More prominent cameras
An aesthetic point to note here is that the camera lenses protrude slightly from the rear case, rather than being flush with it. That suggests that the standard S23 and S23 Plus will look more like the Ultra Edition this year.
Other than that, there aren’t too many surprises in the pictures, and unfortunately the set doesn’t come with a picture where we can compare the sizes of the two phones. The Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to come with a 6.1-inch display, while the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus will come with a 6.6-inch display.
Those are the same dimensions we’ve seen on this year’s phones, so it seems Samsung is sticking to a formula it knows well. All signs point to these handsets getting their big reveal in February 2023.

Regarding the looks of the Galaxy S23 phones, this is the latest leak suggesting that not much will change in terms of dimensions and aesthetics of this premium smartphone from Samsung compared to the Samsung Galaxy S22.
Like almost every other manufacturer in the smartphone industry, Samsung seems to be at a dead end when it comes to design – but to argue it from the other perspective, you could say there’s no reason to change what many consider elegant and stylish design.
The Google Pixel 7 and its immediate predecessors shook up the phone design a bit with the large protruding camera bar. Meanwhile, Apple introduced the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, although that’s more of a software change.
At least for now, it doesn’t look like Samsung will adopt any of those innovations. When the Samsung Galaxy S23 phones are unveiled, we might have trouble distinguishing them from their Galaxy S22 predecessors.
