Getting ready to launch, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ stopped by the FCC. In particular, European models stopped: Galaxy S23 with model number SM-S911B and S23+ with model number SM-S916B. US models should have a “U” at the end instead of a “B”.

Due to privacy requests from Samsung, we are not getting any images of the device or anything supernatural from the FCC, but there are a few takeaways from the documentation. For those concerned about battery life, the FCC has confirmed that the batteries these devices should use will likely be 3,900mAh, while the S23+ is 4,700mAh. In addition, wireless charging and wireless power distribution will be available for both models. There are no shockers.

The processor used in both phones also appears to be made by Qualcomm (yes, even those European models), meaning that past indications that we can expect Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to power these phones look accurate. Qualcomm pretty much confirmed this earlier this month as well.

Devices stopped by the FCC certainly mean we are on the right track to launch. No, that doesn’t mean we very much close to launch, but we’re getting there. Expect these phones to launch globally in the first quarter of 2023.

We’ll update if we know anything else.
