Rumors from known leakers Ice Universe and Steve Hemmerstoffer hint that the new phones will have circular cutouts on the back for the camera lenses. The Galaxy S22 Ultra already have a camera like that. But Hemmerstoffer’s leak suggests it could trickle down to the Plus model, replacing the camera module currently found on the Galaxy S22 Plus. The spotlights in the event invite could be a subtle nod to that design change, if it turns out to be accurate.

Samsung opened reservations on Tuesday in the US for its upcoming devices. The company will offer $50 in Samsung credit if you request to reserve one device or $100 for two devices. The offer is valid until February 1st, and no payment information is required.

The company is expected to announce its new Galaxy S lineup at a time when macroeconomic headwinds have impacted phone sales overall. December reports from market researchers Counterpoint Research and IDC both point to weaker than previously expected growth in global shipments for 2023.

Apart from a slightly updated camera cutout on the new phones, we wait to see Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the Galaxy S23 lineup and possibly Samsung’s 200-megapixel camera sensor in the S23 Ultra.
