7 New Phones That Are Coming Our Way In 2023
Written by: Circles.Life
If we believe the rumours and leaks, we will have a lot to look forward to this year from Apple, Samsung, Google, and OnePlus.
Samsung will be one of the first to release a new smartphone, and OnePlus will be right behind it. On February 1, Samsung is rumoured to introduce the Galaxy S23, while the OnePlus 11 5G is scheduled to go on sale around the world on February 7.
Because many firms follow the same launch routine each year, it is possible to make some assumptions about what will happen in the smartphone industry in 2023.
For instance, the iPhone 15 range is anticipated to launch in September, and it is possible that it could support charging over USB-C for the first time. It's possible that Samsung will put its brand-new 200-megapixel camera sensor in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Such changes are likely to happen after smartphones have made some small but important improvements in 2022.
For example, the iPhone 14 added satellite connectivity that can be used in emergencies and to find car accidents. Google, which put a special Tensor processor in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones, found other uses for it.
In the meantime, Samsung has given its flagship Galaxy S lineup a new appearance and improved the camera on all of the devices in the line.
Here are seven new phones that are coming in 2023. We can’t promise we’d have all of them at Circles.Life, but hey, keep a lookout at our Combo deals, why don’t you?
1. Apple iPhone 15
A new addition to the Apple iPhone family generally launches in September, and we assume 2023 is going to be no different.
It is anticipated that USB-C chargers are going to be the biggest change we will see. This is down to a mandate in the European Union, which stated that all new phones in the region must have USB-C charging by 2024.
We are not 100% sure if that means this year will see the change taking place and whether it is going to be a global change or just for European models. Other changes we believe we may see include a new processor and an upgraded camera.
2. Samsung Galaxy S23
According to the reports, both the camera and the look of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S23 could be improved in some important ways. These are two areas that have typically been of huge emphasis for the South Korean technology giant.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra could have a main camera with a resolution of 200 megapixels. Samsung released a new image sensor in the middle of January that can take photos with a resolution of 200 megapixels.
This has led to more rumours that it will be included in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. On paper, this seems like a significant improvement over the Galaxy S22 Ultra's primary sensor, which had 108 megapixels.
It's also possible that Samsung will change the design of the regular Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus to make them look more like the Ultra model.
3. Oppo Find N2 Flip
Find N2 Flip is the first flip-style, clamshell foldable device released by Oppo. Its design is comparable to that of Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip.
In contrast to its competitor, Samsung, this one has a wide cover display that is oriented vertically. It also has a larger battery and what appears to be – at least on paper – an improved primary camera.
Is this the foldable phone that will eventually replace the Z Flip 4 as the best choice on the market?
4. OnePlus Ace 2 Pro 5G
The rumoured Ace 2 with SuperVOOC 100W may look like the OnePlus 11, right down to the rear camera bump with a 50MP primary sensor. However, the Ace 2 is unlikely to have Hasselblad branding.
On the other hand, it is also believed that it moves away from flagship status in other aspects that are more price-conscious.
It is now thought that the Ace 2 will have a screen with a last-generation curve made by a Chinese company like BOE, while the 11 will have a QHD screen made by Samsung that is almost flat.
Even though it is thought that the Ace 2 will help start the trend toward slightly less expensive smartphones with 1.5K displays, this is still the case.
5. Oppo Find X6 pr Dimensity Edition
The anticipated release date of the Oppo Find X6 is still some time away, so in terms of spec leaks, details are few and far between. However, trickles and design leaks are starting to trickle out, with Oppo itself making its own official announcements regarding the model.
6. Xiaomi 13 Pro
The Xiaomi 13 Pro has already been revealed, but it is now only accessible in China; a debut in other countries is not planned until the beginning of 2023 at the earliest.
This phone boasts a 6.73-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It also has a 4,820mAh battery with support for wired charging at 120W and wireless charging at 50W. Additionally, it has a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 engine and as much as 12GB of RAM.
It also has water resistance and a premium design, as you would expect, but the most exciting aspect of the Xiaomi 13 Pro is its cameras.
It has a primary camera with a 50MP f/1.9 lens and a large 1-inch sensor, which should enable it to take better photos than most other phones. Other cameras on the Xiaomi 13 Pro include a 48MP telephoto lens and a 12MP telephoto lens.
Additionally, it has a 50MP ultra-wide camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and a 50MP telephoto camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and 3x optical zoom.
7. OnePlus 11
Another phone that has already been announced is the OnePlus 11, which was first shown off to the public in China on January 4, 2023, making it one of the very first smartphones released in the year 2023. However, its release to the public will not occur until February 7 of this year.
This smartphone is equipped with a screen that is QHD+ 120Hz, a very powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and a new camera arrangement that includes a main sensor that is 50 MP, an ultra-wide sensor that is 48 MP, and a portrait sensor that is 32 MP.
Additionally, it comes with up to 16 gigabytes of RAM as well as a large 5,000 mAh battery that supports rapid 100W charging. In addition, the OnePlus 11 flaunts a brand-new design with a circular camera block that bears a striking resemblance to the shape of black holes.
