Samsung teased the Galaxy F23 earlier and now the phone made its official debut. It comes as a successor to the Galaxy F22 with a better screen and faster chipset.
The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G has a 6.6” LCD with 120Hz refresh rate and a Full HD+ resolution, up from 90Hz and 720p+ resolution on the F22. It comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top, which is a first for the Galaxy F series.
There is an 8MP f/2.2 selfie camera mounted on a waterdrop notch.
Around the back there are three more cameras – 50MP f/1.8 main, 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide with 123 degrees FoV and 2MP f/2.2 macro units.
The Samsung Galaxy F23 5G packs the Snapdragon 750G chipset, built on the 8nm process, and is one of the key improvements over the F22’s 12nm Mediatek Helio G80. The new chipset is the familiar from powering the Galaxy A52 5G bestseller.
RAM is either 4GB or 6GB and storage is 128GB. The Galaxy F23 5G has a dedicated micro SD slot next to the two SIM slots.
The phone has Android 12 with One UI 4.1 on top and supports Samsung Pay in India. It supports Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and has a USB-C port on the bottom, but no 3.5 mm audio jack.
While Samsung upgraded the Galaxy F23’s charging compared to the Galaxy F22 and it now it is 25W, the battery capacity got reduced to 5,000 mAh. Also, the Galaxy F23 5G is coming without the charger in the retail box, which makes it the first non-flagship from Samsung to ship without an adapter.
