Leaked Samsung Galaxy S23 renders show an uninspiring selection of colors

We’ve previously heard from multiple sources that the Samsung Galaxy S23 series might come in just four shades, but we hadn’t seen what all of those colors actually looked like – but we may now know.

Leaker SnoopyTech has shared renders of the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in all four of the rumored shades – namely Cotton Flower (a cream shade), Misty Lilac, Botanic Green and Phantom Black.

If this leak – and others – are right, and those two phones come in those colors, then so, probably, would the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus, though that phone isn’t pictured here.

We would of course take these renders with a pinch of salt, but the source does claim to have 'confirmed' that these images are accurate. Plus, some of these colors have been shown in other images, and the design of the phones is completely in line with other leaks too.

That's to say, the standard Samsung Galaxy S23 looks to be getting a new camera design, with the metal housing from the Samsung Galaxy S22 removed so the lenses sit individually. That’s the main visual change we’re expecting.


Analysis: a boring selection, but there’s reason to doubt it

While this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard these colors mentioned for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, there’s a chance that this leak is wrong or incomplete.

Samsung typically offers a slightly different selection of colors for its Ultra models than for the other phones, so the selections being identical here seems odd.

Plus, the company sometimes offers exclusive shades on its site that might not be accounted for here, and has been known to launch additional colors at a later date as well. So there may yet be other options.

We certainly hope so, because the Samsung Galaxy S22 series is available in a wider selection of colors, with not just more options but arguably more interesting ones too, such as Bora Purple and burgundy.

All of the colors shown here appear to be slightly dull, muted shades, and while the green model is arguably a bit more interesting there was also a green option last year, so it’s nothing new. Hopefully more shades will be offered then, because that would help these handsets stand out among the best Android phones.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

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.

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
