Samsung's first Unpacked event of this year, where the Galaxy S23 series should be revealed, is scheduled for February 1.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is said to shoot portrait videos in 4K quality at 30 frames per second (fps). The handset is said to come equipped with a 200-megapixel quad rear camera unit. It is expected to be powered by a special edition of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.
