The latest Samsung Galaxy S23 RAM and storage leak has come courtesy of SnoopyTech, who has built up a decent reputation for offering up accurate tech-related information. The leaker uses the codenames “DM1”, “DM2”, and “DM3” for the devices, with “Project Diamond” being the internal codename for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. According to the tipster, the Galaxy S23 series will come in the following configurations:
- DM1 – Samsung Galaxy S23: 8 GB + 128 GB, 8 GB + 256 GB
- DM2 – Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus: 8 GB + 256 GB, 8 GB + 512 GB
- DM3 – Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: 8 GB + 256 GB, 12 GB + 512 GB, and probably a 12 GB + 1 TB model available via the Samsung store
While using the codenames may offer an added hint of credibility to the leak, the source has avoided using a term such as “confirmed” or “official”. But this did not stop Ahmed Qwaider, who previously posted a memory + storage configuration-related leak along with the qualifier “officially”. Qwaider claimed that there would be no 128 GB of storage to be seen anywhere, and while neither the Galaxy S23+ nor Galaxy S23 Ultra are stuck with 128 GB in the above leak, it is clear to see that the Galaxy S23 is.
To confuse matters a little more, yet another leaker, TheGalox_, has thrown another spanner in the works by stating that both the regular Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ would be treated with up to 512 GB of storage space. It appears the three tipsters simply cannot agree on what Samsung has planned with the base model in the upcoming Galaxy S23 series:
- SnoopyTech – 128 GB option but no 512 GB option (S23)
- Qwaider – no 128 GB option and with no 512 GB option specifically mentioned (S23/S23+)
- TheGalox – up to 512 GB option (S23/S23+)
The newest leak, from SnoopyTech, is certainly believable, as it would allow Samsung to launch the Galaxy S23 series with an “affordable” SKU in the lineup. Meanwhile, the 128 GB option is eliminated from the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra model choices, while the former gets a better higher option of a 512 GB variant, thus also demonstrating how Samsung has upgraded the 2023 flagship smartphones over the previous year’s offering.
