Which Phone will be better, S24 Ultra or S23 Ultra?
To find the answer, we have to look closely into the leaks about S23 Ultra and S24 Ultra. Let’s give it a try to find the answer.
Samsung S24 Ultra vs. Samsung S23 Ultra: rumors about Price & Release date:
Now, it’s obvious, Samsung will launch Samsung S23 Ultra in the market first, then Samsung S24 Ultra will hit the market within a couple of months difference, a logical and educated guess. Leakers say Samsung may release the “S23 Ultra” in February 2023 in the US market, which may be in the second week of February.
How much is Samsung S23 in the USA?
Well, experienced leakers believe Samsung S23 Ultra may cost you $1199(starting price) for the 256GB variant. If you are looking for a 512GB variant of Samsung S23 Ultra, please ready $1299 (starting price) for booking.
Samsung S24 Ultra is expected to start at $1600 in the US market for the 12GB RAM variant. S24 Ultra is likely to launch in the second week of March 2023, say the experienced leakers. Though a few believe S24 Ultra may hit the US market after November 2023, S23 Ultra may launch before March 2023.
So, both Samsung S23 Ultra and Samsung S24 Ultra are expected to launch either within a month or S24 may take five to six months more.
Now, we do not have any official clue from Samsung regarding the “Release date” and “Price”. But, we are quite sure that S23 Ultra will hit the market first, later following the S24 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to have a slightly larger screen, 6.83 inches compared to the 6.8 inches of the S24 Ultra. But, if we consider PPI, Samsung S24 Ultra is a step ahead of the S23 Ultra. Leakers expected that S24 Ultra may have 516 PPI, whereas Samsung S23 Ultra is tipped to have a maximum of 500 PPI.
Samsung S23 Ultra is tipped to have a max of 1750 nits (Peak), eminent leaker, “Ahmed Qwaider” says in a twit. Though earlier leaks said it would be a maximum of 2200 nits (peak).
Whereas, Samsung S24 Ultra is expected to have a max of 1600 nits (peak). So, one point goes to the Samsung S23 ultra.
If resolution is considered, Samsung S24 Ultra clearly a step ahead than S23 Ultra, 1440 x 3200-pixel compared to 1440 x 3008-pixel
So, we can conclude S24 Ultra gets higher “PPI” and “resolution”, but a bit lower nits (peak) than S23 Ultra. S23 Ultra is a step ahead in “Low-Light” conditions for its higher “nits”. My verdict says S24 Ultra offers more clear and smooth experience while watching movies and pictures.

Let’s come to the camera segment. Both S24 Ultra and Samsung S23 Ultra have quad lenses in the rear and one selfie shooter at the front (in the punch-hole cutout). But, the rear camera configuration is different. Both the S24 Ultra and S23 Ultra get the 200MP main lens. But the rest of the “lens -configuration” is different.
Let’s look into the table to realize the differences.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
|Samsung S24 Ultra is tipped to have the following camera configuration in the rear. 200 MP resolution; f/1.8 (Main Lens)12 MP f/2.2 (Ultra Wide)12 MP f/2.4 (Telephoto)12 MP f/4.9 (Periscope ) with autofocus||Samsung S23 Ultra is tipped to have the following camera configuration in the rear. 200 MP f/1.7 (Wide Angle) 10 MP f/4.9 (Telephoto) 10 MP f/2.4 (Telephoto) 12 MP f/2.2 (Ultra Wide) with autofocus|
|S24 ultra will have a 32MP megapixel selfie shooter.||S23 ultra gets a 12MP megapixel selfie shooter.|
Also, Samsung S24 Ultra is tipped to support 150x zoom, whereas S23 Ultra may support a maximum of 100x digital zoom like its predecessor, the S22 Ultra.
So, I vote for Samsung S24 Ultra for its amazing camera configuration and stunning digital zoom as I like to shoot. So, if you are a camera “freak” and would like to have an “All-in-one” shooter in your pocket, go for Samsung S24 Ultra.
Battery, Charging, and RAM:
It is expected Samsung’s S24 Ultra may have a larger battery, 5100 mAh. While leakers are expecting S23 Ultra may have a battery lower than 5000 mAh. But, both the handset’s batteries are of the same type, non-removal and “Li-Po” batteries.
S24 Ultra will have 25W wireless charging and 10W reverse charging.
While the S23 ultra is expected to have only 10W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse charging.
Should I wait for the S24 ultra?
Well, I have covered all the points that may seem to be deciding factors. Now it’s time to decide whether go for Samsung S23 Ultra or if should I wait a bit for S24 to hit the market. I will vote for S24 ultra for the following reasons.
- S24 Ultra will have a far better “Telephoto” sensor and advanced “Zoom” mechanism which is 150x, says “Ice Universe”. I believe in “Ice Universe” for its excellent past track record.
- Samsung has announced to implement of advanced “Nano-photonics technology” technology in S24 Ultra for the first time. This technology helps S24 Ultra to provide overall clear video recording, less power consumption while recording, better “Low-Light” video recording performance and “Noise” reduction, and better “Background-Blur” effects. Also, S24 Ultra will be perfect to capture both “Dark-Shadows” and “Bright” highlights.
- The Third point is S24 Ultra is having better “wireless” and reverse charging than the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
