Taking a look back at seven days of news and headlines across the world of Android, this week’s Android Circuit includes the latest Galaxy S23 leaks, Samsung’s SnapDragon decision, OnePlus confirms OnePlus Pad, smartphone sales fall, Android 13’s successful roll-out, Google plans old app block, fast pair for phones, and a potential phone from Coca-Cola.
Android Circuit is here to remind you of a few of the many things that have happened around Android in the last week (and you can find the weekly Apple news digest here).
The Case For The Galaxy S23
“More Galaxy S23-series official case colors and designs have shown up online through leaked renders. They reveal clear cases, colored silicone cases, and S-View Flip Covers for both the rounder Galaxy S23/S23+ and the boxier Galaxy S23 Ultra. The renders… also reveal screen protectors for the Galaxy S23 series, and they offer a closer look at some of Samsung’s design decisions for 2023, i.e., the circular rear-facing cameras.
Samsung Prepares A Snapdragon For Everyone
Samsung’s upcoming family of Galaxy S23 smartphones looks more and more likely to be powered by the latest SnapDragon 8 Gen 2 system on chip across all global variants. That’s going to provide a continuity of hardware the platform has not seen in a long time:
“A new report from Daum adds further confirmation that Samsung will be using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in all global models of the Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra. This has been expected for months, but only seems more certain as we approach the official launch.”
