Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra may be better at maintaining higher temperatures than its less expensive models, which are set to launch in the first week of February. That’s because the flagship is rumored to ship with a vapor chamber cooler, but the company may not release the same solution for the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23.
The base model may not come with a high-end cooling system at all as Samsung seeks to cut corners and reduce manufacturing costs
The Galaxy S22 Ultra also shipped with a vapor chamber, and according to OreXda, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to do the same. What Tipster doesn’t mention is the level of improvements that have been made to this cooling solution. Will Samsung increase the surface area or thickness of the cooler to improve heat dissipation? Looks like we’ll find out more in the future.
For the remaining two models, Samsung is rumored to be cutting manufacturing costs, especially with the Galaxy S23. With the Galaxy S23 Plus, the Korean giant is still rumored to be preparing a heat pipe solution, but the Galaxy S23 may be completely left out for any reason. OreXda didn’t say how the base model would keep the SoC and other components cool if it didn’t have any heatsink.
Well, let me explain the cooling system of the S23 series.
It is almost shared with the S22 series.
Normal (no cooling system)
– plus (thermal cooling)
Ultra (vapor room cooling)

We think Samsung may use a combination of graphite foil and chassis to keep temperatures down. We don’t know how effective this method is in dealing with temperatures, so we’ll update our readers accordingly. While potential buyers may be angry at the fact that Samsung is only interested in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, let’s take a look at the areas where the company is said to give all models equal status.
In the chipset category, all three Galaxy S23 models are expected to ship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with higher CPU and GPU speed. Additionally, all three models are also rumored to be getting satellite connectivity like the iPhone 14, but apart from being able to send and receive texts, these models may also be able to place calls when trying to reach emergency services.
Also, since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is mass-produced on TSMC’s 4nm process, it’s very power efficient on its own, so we wouldn’t worry too much if Samsung was giving the Galaxy S23 Ultra more exclusive upgrades. After all, look at what other features the remaining two models are rumored to be getting.
