Samsung just unveiled the Galaxy S23 series at Wednesday’s¬†Unpacked event in San Francisco. We got a closer look at the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra, as well as the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, but the devices won’t ship until Feb. 17, so it’ll be at least a few weeks until people start receiving them.
