It also features pro-level features in the Expert RAW mode that empower users to produce creative and cinematic films with ease. The device also features a multi-frame processing solution for the camera, called Nightography, which allows users to take vivid and optimized videos even in low light. An enhanced AI object-aware engine and stereo depth map help the camera capture clear portraits in great detail, making night photos come to life.
The Galaxy S23 series has also received a serious upgrade, with an enhanced 5000 mAh battery, improved cooling system, next-level camera performance, and 41% faster GPU. The 8-core CPU boosts the processing capabilities of the Galaxy S23 series by 34%, making it ideal for multitasking. The optimized NPU architecture uses an AI algorithm for an additional 49% boost, helping users capture stunning photos in low light.
In addition to the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Book3 series, with the Galaxy Book3 Ultra being the standout product. The Galaxy Book3 Ultra is equipped with the latest CPU and GPU from Intel and NVIDIA, making it perfect for everyday users, gamers, and creators. It also features the Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display, which is a groundbreaking feature that Samsung is introducing to users for the first time.
Samsung has taken steps to further its sustainability efforts, with 100% recycled paper package boxes and various external and internal parts made of recycled glass, plastic, and aluminum. The company is committed to shaping a brighter future through technology.
Samsung also announced a partnership with Qualcomm, with the Galaxy S23 series powered by the world’s fastest and most power-efficient Snapdragon yet. This partnership further underscores Samsung’s commitment to delivering industry-leading experiences to its users.
