The Best Mobile Phones of 2023

As 2023 kicks into high gear, Techcontrol is taking a look at some of the best mobile phones expected to launch this year. With massive improvements in areas like battery life, charging speeds, durability, and especially camera quality, 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for smartphone releases. Here are our picks for the best and most anticipated mobile phones of 2023.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Series

As one of the most popular lines year after year, there is a lot of hype surrounding Samsung's next Galaxy S release. Many experts believe the S23 lineup could be unveiled as soon as January 2023. Some expected improvements include a larger battery, at least across the S23 Plus and S23 Ultra models, even faster wired and wireless charging speeds, an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, major low-light photography enhancements, and much sleeker designs overall. The Galaxy S23 series will surely be top contenders for best 2023 smartphones.

iPhone 15 Series

Given the immense success and popularity of iPhones over the years, Apple fans always have a lot to look forward to. 2023 is expected to bring the reveal of the iPhone 15 lineup, likely arriving September 2023. Some potential upgrades over the iPhone 14 series include higher RAM capacities, Wi-Fi 6E on all models, cameras with increased megapixels and improved optical image stabilization (especially on the Pro models), and a new A17 Bionic chip which will be even faster. And as always, new colors and style options are likely in store.

Google Pixel Fold

As one major smartphone manufacturer that has yet to launch a folding device, there is tons of speculation that 2023 could finally be the year Google debuts its take on foldable phone technology through the rumored Pixel Fold. This device is expected to feature a cutting-edge foldable OLED display made by Samsung, a custom-designed Tensor G2 chip from Google to enable advanced AI applications, a versatile triple camera setup, and extensive software optimizations to make use of the foldable form factor in creative ways.

OnePlus 11 5G

Known for delivering flagship-level quality at somewhat more affordable price points, OnePlus fans are already getting excited about specs and leaks related to the upcoming OnePlus 11. Some potential upgrades in store including much faster charging that could exceed 100W, a top-of-the-line new Snapdragon chip, major improvements in display quality through LTPO 3.0 technology enabling even better dynamic refresh rates, and a triple camera array headed by an advanced 50MP sensor.

Xiaomi 13 Pro

As a dominant budget and mid-range smartphone company based in China but with a growing global presence, Xiaomi has also seen great success with its premium flagship Mi line in markets like India. Leaks point to the Xiaomi 13 Pro stepping thing up even further later this year with the most advanced Qualcomm silicon, incredible charging speeds exceeding 120W, high-end camera sensors and lenses, the latest Gorilla Glass protection, and a gorgeous 2K resolution AMOLED screen with LTPO dynamic refresh rates up to 120Hz for flawlessly smooth visuals.

Vivo X90 Pro+

Another major Chinese player that has been making waves with excellent flagship phones in recent years is Vivo. The new X90 series expected to release globally this year will represent Vivo's best yet, with a particular emphasis on very advanced camera technology. Through a partnership with Zeiss, Vivo is able to develop things like state-of-the-art gimbal-style optical image stabilization so that shots and videos come out incredibly smooth and steady. Ultra-fast charging, the newest high-end chips, and excellent well-tuned displays also make this a series to watch in 2023.

Premium Foldables & Rollables

While brands like Samsung, Motorola and Huawei have already brought folding screen smartphones to the masses over the past couple years, 2023 is positioned to take things to the next level. We expect even more smartphone manufacturers to unveil foldable devices this year, plus the form factors themselves will continue to become more polished. From clamshell-style foldables to tablet-sized screens that fold down for portability to rollable displays that can physically expand and retract, premium folding mobiles promise to provide the versatility of both smartphones and tablets in one impressively engineered device.

Rugged Smartphones

On the other end of the delicate folding display spectrum, 2023 should introduce some new ultra-rugged smartphones. With reinforced metal frames, Gorilla Glass Victus shielding the screens, completely waterproof and dust-proof sealing, and often very large batteries for long life between charges, rugged phones are designed to withstand all kinds of harsh environments and abuse without issue. Some key names in this niche like Doogee and Blackview will likely upgrade their offerings this year for those who work and play in demanding conditions.

Premium Mid-Rangers

While flagship phones grab all the headlines with cutting-edge new tech and sky-high prices, capable mid-range devices make up the majority of the market. 2023 will make it even tougher for many buyers to pass up upper mid-range offerings. Phones categorized as premium mid-rangers this year will offer excellent all screen designs, 5G connectivity, impressive camera setups headed by large high-resolution sensors, the latest mid-tier Snapdragons, ample RAM and storage, and extras like 90Hz+ displays, robust battery capacities and very quick charging. Names like OnePlus Nord, Moto G Stylus, Xiaomi Redmi and Galaxy A series deliver fantastic value/quality ratios.
