The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could be almost identical to the S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra was in some ways a big upgrade on the S21 Ultra, offering a new design and an S Pen slot, among other changes, but by the sounds of things the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could be more just a tiny tweak on the current model.

That’s according to reputable leaker @UniverseIce, who on Twitter claimed that based on what they’ve heard so far, the S23 Ultra will be the “smallest appearance change in Samsung’s history.”

More specifically, they claim that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will have dimensions of 163.4 × 78.1 × 8.9mm. For comparison, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm. So if this is right then the two phones will have the same thickness and be almost identical in their length and width.

@UniverseIce also claims that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch 1440 x 3088 screen and a 5,000mAh battery – just like the S22 Ultra. The only changes they mention are a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and updated software – though the current model will presumably get the latter eventually too.

Of course, even if they’re right not everything is detailed here. So some specs and features could be very different – with the camera in particular sounding promising based on other leaks, but it sounds like the actual design might be very, very similar to that of the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Analysis: all about the camera

The saving grace of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could be its camera – which in some ways was a disappointment on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The current model has superb cameras, but they’re almost identical to the ones on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, making that one of the few areas that didn’t get any real upgrade.

This time around though it sounds like the camera could be among the few areas that does get substantially upgraded, as rumors suggest the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a 200MP snapper.

That would be up from the 108MP main camera on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, so quite an upgrade in terms of megapixels. Of course, megapixels aren’t everything, but presumably Samsung is intending for this sensor to be better than the current one.

So if you’re after one of the best camera phones then the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could be worth waiting for, but whether it will be one of the best smartphones overall is sounding a little less certain.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

iPhone 15 Pro Rumored to Feature Ultra-Thin Curved Bezels

The iPhone 15 Pro models will have thinner, curved bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models, potentially resulting in an Apple Watch-like appearance, according to the leaker known as " ShrimpApplePro ." ShrimpApplePro clarified that the next-generation "Pro" iPhone models will still have flat displays, since only the bezels are to be curved. According to a source speaking to the leaker, this combination of slimmer bezels and curved edges could result in a look similar to the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8. The curved front glass will purportedly also be present on the ‌iPhone 15‌ and ‌iPhone 15‌ Plus's design, but these devices will not have thinner bezels compared to their iPhone 14 predecessors. ShrimpApplePro added that the ‌iPhone 15‌ lineup will feature the same display sizes as last year's ‌iPhone 14‌ lineup. Last year, the leaker was among the first to say that the ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro models will have a titanium frame with curved rear ed

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.
