Although Samsung hasn’t officially unveiled the Galaxy S23 yet, almost all its features and even the design have leaked over the past couple of months. Yesterday, the complete specifications list of the Galaxy S23 series was leaked through promotional images. However, it had one mistake.
The images mentioned LPDDR5 RAM, which was also used in the Galaxy S21 series and the Galaxy S22 series. However, that isn’t true. Tipster Ice Universe has confirmed that the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra use LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.
Galaxy S23, S23+, S23 Ultra RAM and storage variants
- Galaxy S23: 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB
- Galaxy S23+: 8GB+256GB, 8GB+512GB
- Galaxy S23 Ultra: 8GB+256GB, 12GB+512GB, 12GB+1TB
LPDDR5X RAM is the latest low-power memory standard, and it is used in smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It supports up to 8,533Mbps data transfer speeds, which is 33% faster than the fastest LPDDR5 RAM. UFS 4.0 storage chips offer sequential data read speeds of up to 4200MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2,800MB/s. That’s twice as fast as UFS 3.1 storage, which offers up to 2100MB/s sequential read speeds and up to 1,200MB/s sequential write speeds.
The combination of a new-generation chipset (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy), new RAM (LPDDR5X), and new storage (UFS 4.0) on the Galaxy S23 series will offer a huge boost in performance. You can notice that in various areas, including phone bootup speeds, app and game launching, multitasking, and gaming.
