We already have a pretty complete idea of how they look in leaked press shots, but new photos show what Samsung’s whole Galaxy S23 lineup will look like in the real world, a day before their official reveal.

Photos of the range’s three anticipated models, the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra, were posted to Twitter by leaker Ice Universe. Twitter user Dylan Xitton also published a short clip holding the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which we spotted via SamMobile. It’s since been removed in response to a copyright claim, all-but confirming its authenticity. 

Thanks to numerous leaks over the past few months we’ve already seen several press renders of the lineup, and there have also been a couple of photos and videos shared previously. But these new shots give a more-or-less complete look at the whole lineup. We can see the squared-off edges of the Galaxy S23 Ultra with its four cameras around back, while the S23 and S23 Plus are more rounded in design with one fewer camera each.

According to a follow up tweet, the source of Xitton’s photos is a Chilean mobile network which has inadvertently started publicly displaying the handsets prior to their official launch. Sure enough, the photographs show the S23 Ultra in what appears to be a retail display unit, complete with a security tether attached to the back of the phone. 

The big new feature we’re expecting from the Galaxy S23 Ultra is a high resolution 200-megapixel main camera, which is roughly double the resolution of the 108-megapixel sensor we saw on last year’s S22 Ultra.
