The main competitors in the
market have already defined which high-end cell phones they will launch this
, both worldwide and in the competitive Argentine market.
As every year,
Samsung 's Galaxy S23 Ultra and
's ever-present iPhone
lead the "tank" race;
although there are several brands that are not far behind.
This year, according to industry rumors, attention will probably be focused on the consolidation of the
segment with the appearance of flexible screens that even roll up.
Below are the launches planned for 2023 in
top-of-the-range cell phones
, brand by brand.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have its replacement in early February.
The world's first cellphone maker, Samsung, will be the first to launch a cellphone in 2023. While the South Korean tech giant gave no clues as to what it will introduce, its
new Galaxy S23 family of devices is expected to make its debut.
, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra
Without official data so far, although leaks are the order of the day, the next Korean "tank" that will compete directly against the iPhone 15 would be its Galaxy S23 Ultra version, which would have the
new generation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
made in 4nm and a
huge 200 megapixel camera sensor
On the other hand, new folding phones from the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip 5 line are expected, perhaps with the first folding with a 108-megapixel camera, by the middle of 2023. The Galaxy A 34 and A 74 would also be part of the catalog to give battle in the midrange.
The Moto Edge 30 Ultra will also be renewed.
For its part,
plans a 2023 probably focused on expanding the Edge family with the future
Edge 40 Ultra
edition and even launching
two models with a flexible screen
, one of them during the first half of the year.
The future model of its premium line – codenamed XT2301 – will arrive with a screen resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 144Hz, according to the first leaks.
But the most surprising thing will be its top-of-the-range model (Ultra?) With 18GB of RAM, 512GB of internal storage and a camera module with a 200-megapixel main sensor.
On the other hand, Motorola promises to be the protagonist among the main brands with the probable announcement of its new smartphone with a vertical format roll-up screen, which bears the code name
, and which would arrive only at the end of 2023.
This particular development was presented during Lenovo Tech World 22 by the 312 Labs group, Motorola engineers from around the world.
The company intends to go a step beyond the well-known flexible screen concept, as seen with generations of Razr phones, through flexible OLED screens, or pOLED, which can go from 6.5 inches to a retractable size depending on whether it is used for play video games or keep it in your pocket.
As usual, news will also be expected from the G family, the brand's best-seller and the global promoter of the mid-range of telephony.
The models will surely continue the legacy left by many of those we saw in 2022: screens with refresh rates ranging from 90 to 120 hz, 5G connectivity and batteries for more than 24 hours of autonomy.
As usual, the iPhone 15 will make its debut in September.
Apple cell phones will also be protagonists, as usual.
is expected to finally comply with the demands of the European Union and put
an end to the Lightning charging port
, the same one that it has installed on its devices since 2012. In this way, the next generation of the iPhone will be the first with a connector USB-C in the more than ten years of the family.
Apple introduced the new
notification bar for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, the top of the range of the family;
while the cheaper iPhone 14 models repeated the usual
for the selfie camera.
With the iPhone 15, this feature is expected to extend even to budget models.
Where there would be no changes would be in the size of the screen, according to the first leaks.
The iPhone 15 and 15 Pro will keep the 6.1 inches of their predecessors, and the same will happen with the versions of the iPhone 15 Plus and Pro Max that will have 6.7 inches.
Other rumours, such as Bloomberg
analyst Mark Gurman's
, said that Apple could replace the
"Pro Max" version of the iPhone 15 with a new high-end "Ultra" model
The name change for the top-of-the-line model resembles that of rival Samsung with the Galaxy S line.
On the other hand, the iPhone 15 Pro models could be the first to feature the 3-nanometer A17 chip instead of the current A16 of the iPhone 14. The presence of this technology is expected to increase processing performance by between 10 and 15 percent, while also reducing power consumption by up to 30 percent.
As part of its logical evolution, the iPhone 15 Pro models could gain processing speed by going from the current 6 to 8 GB of RAM.
Apple is also likely to improve the camera with a better sensor that redefines image quality.
According to the TrendForce site, the iPhone 15 could have an additional eighth optical element (8P) for the main lens, which would help improve image details.
Also, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could come with 10x optical zoom (a huge leap from the iPhone 14 Pro Max's 3x optical zoom).
This 10x zoom would use a periscope lens design similar to many Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Xiaomi 13, the flagship of the Chinese brand.
In recent months, the Chinese technology brand began manufacturing its phones in Argentina, planning the launch of the next family of
Xiaomi 13 cell phones and its "cheap" Redmi Note 12
, which it began producing in Europe and Asia.
The next season, which would start in December, will feature the Xiaomi 13 Lite, Xiaomi 13, Xiaomi 13 Pro, Xiaomi 13 Ultra and Xiaomi 13X.
For the second half of the year, the Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro are expected to appear, according to the first rumors and what may be seen at the World Cell Phone Congress (MWC 2023) that will begin at the end of February in Barcelona.
As for the features of these models, such as the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro, it is expected that they will have the famous 200W fast charge incorporated to fully recharge the battery in just a few minutes.
Regarding the processor, Xiaomi would follow the path of Samsung and Motorola in adopting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which they recently announced in Hawaii.
Possibly starting with 8GB of RAM, although perhaps that number will eventually increase to 12GB.
On the other hand, the Chinese brand could bring to the country any of the Redmi Note 12 5G, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro+ and Redmi Note 12 Pro+ Explorer Edition after its presentation at the beginning of 2023;
although several of those models will only be marketed in China.
As for the technological innovations, the Pro version promises a 108 MP quad camera, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a 5000 mAH battery.
