Mark your calendar: Samsung is hosting its next Galaxy Unpacked on February 1st. The company is officially confirming a date that it kinda accidentally confirmed a few days ago. The event will take place at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco, and although Samsung isn’t saying exactly what will be announced, it’s almost certainly the Galaxy S23 series.
The company is also bringing back its preorder reservation incentives for those who are eager to claim a yet-to-be-named device. By putting in a reservation, you’ll get $50 of Samsung store credit if you follow through and preorder one device or $100 when you preorder two devices — that’s all assuming that people are actually able to place preorders, which proved tricky last year. There’s no obligation, thankfully, so you don’t have to purchase one sight unseen.
The event itself kicks off at 10am PT on Wednesday the first and will be livestreamed as well. If rumors are anything to go by, the S23 series could include some interesting camera upgrades, like the debut of a 200-megapixel sensor in the Ultra. The S22 Ultra was already one of our favorite mobile camera systems of 2022, so we’ll be eager to see what February 1st brings.
