If the rumors are to be believed, Samsung could be officially unveiling the Galaxy S23 on the 1st of February. Now thanks to a tweet by tipster Ahmed Qwaider, we might have an idea about some of the memory configurations that the handset could be offered in in terms of RAM and storage.
According to the tweet, the Galaxy S23 will be offered in 8GB or 12GB options for RAM, and there will be combinations where you can get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, or 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. But for some of the higher-end models like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, it will be offered in 8GB + 256GB, 12GB + 256GB, 12GB + 512GB, and 12GB + 1TB storage options.

As you can tell by these configurations, it seems that it supports the previous rumor that Samsung will be doing away with the base 128GB of storage option, but that might not be entirely accurate. This is because apparently for some regions around the world, Samsung is expected to continue to offer 128GB of storage, presumably at a lower price to tempt customers.
While in terms of memory it doesn’t look like much has changed and we’re not necessarily getting more RAM, apparently it will be faster as Samsung is said to be using LPDDR5X RAM instead of LPDDR5, and that the storage will also use UFS 4.0 which will offer faster read and write speeds over the previously used UFS 3.1
