Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones are said to support satellite calling like the iPhone 14 lineup. Samsung may unveil its next-generation Galaxy S series smartphones in February 2023.
The Galaxy S23 series may include the standard Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra phones. The company is still silent about its plan to launch new flagship phones early next year.
Meanwhile, key details about the S23 lineup continue to emerge online. A new leak indicates that upcoming Samsung phones will copy the iPhone 14 feature.
The Galaxy S23 series may support satellite communication. An ETNews report claims that Samsung has been working on Iridium Communications for two years now.
Tipster RGcloudS recently revealed that the S23 series will feature an eye-catching display. In fact, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will likely outpace the iPhone 14 Pro in terms of maximum brightness.
Samsung Galaxy S23 series satellite calling feature
With Iridium Communications, S23 users will be able to send low-resolution text and images via satellite communications. On the downside, high-speed voice and data communications require large antennas.
So, equipping smartphones with these antennas is a daunting task. However, Apple has brought the satellite calling feature to the iPhone 14.

The feature is only available in the United States and Canada. Now, some reports are suggesting that Huawei will use Beidou satellites to bring a similar feature to its upcoming devices.
It is still not clear if this S23 lineup will get worldwide satellite calling feature. Samsung may limit this feature to a few countries like Apple.
Previous leaks indicate that the S23 series will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. All three phones will have 120Hz refresh rate support. They will run Android 13 with One UI 5.0 on top. All S23 series phones may have the same 32MP selfie camera as well.
However, the S23 Ultra will get a 200MP main camera. It will have a 12MP plus 10MP ultra-wide telephoto camera. Finally, there is a 10MP telephoto camera on the back as well.
