Samsung Galaxy Unpacked launches later today and should see the reveal of new smartphones to rival Apple iPhone, including Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra. We're also expecting new laptops in the Galaxy Book range.

It's worth remembering that as Samsung launches the new S23 range of smartphones we'll likely see reductions in the price of last year's S22 models. Take a look at the latest S22 deals below, and I'll be tracking these to with updates.

Here's an overview of what we can expect from the new Samsung Galaxy S23, if we can believe the leaked specs.

It sounds like there won't be any new wearable announcements today at Samsung Unpacked, with rumours focussing on laptops and smartphones. I'd expect a new Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds Pro to be revealed this summer. The same goes for new entries in the Galaxy Z Fold range, as the latest is just six months old.

The new chip inside the Galaxy S23 range of smartphones will ensure these devices are perfect for photographers and digital artists looking to expand their skill set. The chip from Qualcomm features 'Snapdragon Sight' , a Cognitive Image Signal Processor that turns this range of mobiles into truly professional quality cameras – that's the idea, anyway.

A fun little bit of tech info has leaked, revealing the new Galaxy Book 3 laptops will feature thinner and lighter OLED displays that have sensors embedded directly into the touchscreens.

There's only 40 minutes to go until Samsung Galaxy Unpacked begins, are you set? Can Samsung take a lead on Apple in 2023 with its Android smartphones? For photography, at least, there could be some surprises.

WoooW… here we go then. 

The Samsung Galaxy S23 features a stunning display – dynamic AMOLED 2X, 120Hz, HDR10+, 6.1-inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Connected experience is promised, so can Samsung finally offer artists the tech they need?

Pro-grade camera – super HDR video and lots of tech talk here, but the ability to deliver rich colour clarity looks great. And it's 8K and brighter! 200MP camera, we've heard about this earlier in leaks but seeing photos taken with it, and seeing it in action, is amazing. Enjoy the tech burble…

Night sky photography made even easier? Brilliant.

Well, that's the lot. Pretty impressive roster of new tech and finally Samsung has some devices for creatives, video editors and artists. Pre-orders are open now, shipping from 17th February.
