TL;DR

  • Samsung reportedly wants an earlier release for the Galaxy S23 series.
  • The S22 series was launched on February 9 and went on sale on February 25.
  • This suggests a potential launch in January, if not sooner.

Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 series in February, which is one of the first widely available flagship phones of the year. Now a Korean news outlet has claimed that we could be in for an earlier launch.

ETNews reports that Samsung is eyeing an early release for the Galaxy S23 series. The outlet did not issue a specific release window, but claims that Samsung wants the S23 phones to be released “sooner compared to its predecessor.”

Supply chain partners predicted the S23 series release date could be two to three weeks earlier than usual, the outlet added. For what it’s worth, the Galaxy S22 lineup was unveiled on February 9th and went on sale on February 25th. In other words, that would mean a January launch of the new phones and/or an early February on-sale date.

Having said that, we have previously seen some brands like Xiaomi and Motorola launch the new generation of flagships in December. However, these launches were limited to China, meaning production isn’t as big a hurdle to overcome as it would have been for a global launch. And Samsung typically prefers global releases for its high-end phones.

In any case, the news also comes a day after the first apparent Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus renders surfaced online. The images show similar designs and sizes, albeit with ultra-style camera bodies.
