Samsung hasn’t officially announced the Galaxy S23 series yet, but all the specs have been revealed. Information about pricing, pre-order offers and availability has also been leaked over the past few days. Now, a new YouTube video has emerged claiming to be the world’s first Galaxy S23 Ultra unboxing.
A video by YouTuber Agrawalji Technical claims to show the Galaxy S23 Ultra and its box packaging. The entire video is fairly dark, and it’s hard to tell if the phone is actually a Galaxy S23 Ultra or an older model, as both phones look pretty similar. However, some keen Twitter users Including tipster ice universe, pointed out content in the video that made the entire video look fake. The phone’s serial number and IMEI in the video belong to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but can be easily counterfeited.
The antenna wires on the phone’s metal frame appear in the video at the top right corner of the device. Official press renders of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, however, show that the antenna line should be in the top left section. Ice Universe pointed out that the font that looks on the galaxy s23 ultra box in the video is thinner than Samsung’s official font. It looks like a weak attempt to pass the Galaxy S22 Ultra over to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. And the box appears to have been printed using cell phone rendering and some Photoshop skills.
Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra on February 1, 2023, with pre-orders available on the same day in select countries. While some markets will see a price increase compared to the Galaxy S22 series, others won’t. Samsung has already started accepting pre-registrations for its upcoming smartphone.
