The Galaxy S23 series is only a few weeks away, as the company has already confirmed a February 1 unveiling and opened up reservations for the upcoming devices. Hardware specifications have not yet been officially revealed, but the company has hinted at major camera improvements. Unofficially, a new report has added more information to the growing pile. According to it, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will boast several audio quality improvements.

The report touches on camera and sound quality, and for one, it suggests that the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra has excellent image stabilization and autofocus.

A better flagship for multimedia and content creation

In addition, Samsung has supposedly improved the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s audio and sound recording capabilities. The report claims that the top-tier flagship has better speakers with improved audio, especially on lower frequencies (bass). It should provide a better out-of-the-box multimedia experience, even without connecting to earbuds or external Bluetooth speakers.

Finally, the rumor indicates that the Galaxy S23 Ultra features an excellent microphone array. This upgrade should come in handy for people who use apps such as Samsung Voice Recorder and the Interview recording feature. Likewise, it should provide a better audio experience for videos recorded with the onboard cameras.

All things considered, the Galaxy S23 Ultra should be a better device for multimedia consumption and for content creators who want improved video-audio recording capabilities.

Whether or not the base Galaxy S23 and/or the Galaxy S23+ will also feature these audio hardware upgrades remains to be seen. We’re only a couple of weeks away from the official unveiling at Unpacked, so we’ll find out soon enough.

Fans who are eager to get their hands on the upcoming flagships can now reserve the Galaxy S23 and get $50 in Samsung Credit, or $100 worth of credit if they choose to reserve the flagship phone as well as the upcoming Galaxy Book 3 ultrabook.
