Vanilla S23 will use slower storage tech for its 128GB variant

We don’t know what’s behind this decision, but once released, it may be a factor to this model’s undesirability

While we wait for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, some intriguing details regarding the base Galaxy S23 have surfaced online. According to a recent report by a well-known leaker, the vanilla model’s cheapest variant will have slower storage technology than the other series members.

This suggests the company will give higher storage models more attention in the future. The data is obtained from leaker Ice Universe, which is renowned for its reliable Samsung-related information. According to Ice, the Galaxy S23’s 128GB model will have slower UFS 3.1 technology.

The remaining models—256GB and 512GB—will probably showcase the most recent UFS 4.0 storage. Although the two technologies perform similarly, it is clear that Samsung is attempting to differentiate its lower-end models from its higher-end models. However, like other models in the series, the 128GB Galaxy S23 will include LPDDR5X RAM.

According to The Cat, Samsung does not intend to produce 128 GB UFS 4.0 this year. The Galaxy S23+ and S23 Ultra will only be offered 256/512GB of storage, so this is probably why.

Only one Japanese company, Kioxia, reportedly makes 128 GB UFS 4.0 products, but they don’t significantly outperform Samsung’s UFS 3.1 modules in terms of performance.

A 6.1-inch Infinity-O display with FHD+ (2,340 x 1,080) resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ support is anticipated for the Galaxy S23. The device could have a 3,900mAh battery and 25W charging, and it would be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

A 50MP main camera, a 10MP telephoto lens, and a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera are all likely to be present. There might be a 12MP selfie camera on the front.
