Samsung will unveil its next flagship family, the Galaxy S23, at an event on February 1. Viewers at home can tune in directly to Samsung, and TechRadar will be on site in San Francisco to check out the new phones, which will presumably include the Galaxy S23 Plus and the 200MP-capable Galaxy S23 Ultra.

If you’re already sure you want Samsung’s next big thing, the reserve sale has started and will run until the event. Samsung isn’t giving away details upfront, but you can get $50 or $100 in store credit if you commit to one or two new devices, respectively. You don’t have to deposit money in advance, you just need to provide your name and email address.

The event invite looks remarkably similar to the three-hole camera cutout we’ve seen on leaked renders and images of the Galaxy S23 phone, making it much more similar to the design of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, as seen above is.

The launch of the Galaxy S23 is the first major phone launch of the year, and it probably raises the bar for other manufacturers to jump over. Qualcomm has loudly suggested that any Galaxy S23 device will run its next-generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform, and we’ve even heard it could get a speed boost for Samsung’s flagships.
