Samsung pushes for more sustainable products — Launches new Galaxy S series

SAMSUNG Electronics is continuing its strong commitment to environmental sustainability with the release of the new Galaxy S23 series in which it has introduced more recycled materials to reduce plastic packaging.

While the cycle of switching smartphones can be fun and exciting, it comes at a cost to the planet because they end up as electronic waste.


Consequently, the electronic appliance manufacturer is fighting back by building the Galaxy S23, S23 plus, and S23 Ultra with more recycled materials than previous generations, complete with a special tag to represent certification for reduced environmental impact.

As part of a collaboration with Corning, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series devices are the first phones to use (on the front and back) Gorilla Glass Victus two.

In addition to increases in durability, this latest generation of the glass includes around 22 per cent recycled pre-consumer content, on average.

Planet in mind

The President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics, Dr TM Roh, at the launch of the Galaxy S23 series in the United States which was also televised in Ghana, observed that the new device raised the bar for premium technology designed with the planet in mind.

“It is made using even more recycled materials than the Galaxy S22 series, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and recycled glass, and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, water barrels and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles,” he said.

He added that the electronic firm was redefining peak performance by merging power and lasting innovation in devices that have less environmental impact.

Ultimate premium

The company unveiled the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23 plus and Galaxy S23, marking a new era of Samsung Galaxy’s ultimate premium phone experience.

Galaxy's epic camera provides users more freedom to explore their creativity, like capturing truly cinematic ‘Nightography’ videos with transformative AI.

For instance, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, has an embedded S Pen that many users are familiar with and offers more possibilities for productivity, note taking, hobbies and more.

All the Galaxy S23 series’ new standard-setting innovations are housed within a striking design that advances Samsung’s sustainability commitment with more recycled materials than any other Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

“The most impactful technology is measured, not just by what it enables for people today, but also how it contributes to a better future,” Dr Roh said.


According to him, Galaxy S23 Ultra and the entire Galaxy S series line-up are the new standard-bearers of a trustworthy premium smartphone experience.

He said Galaxy S23 Ultra made it easier for any level of photographer to capture phenomenal content.

“It offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, tailored for nearly any lighting conditions and engineered to render incredible detail.

“Improved nightography capabilities transform how the Galaxy S series optimises photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions,” he said.

Incredible precision

The president noted that in a Samsung Galaxy-first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP adaptive pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision.

“It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.

On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the iconic Samsung Galaxy camera also gets an upgraded look. The contour housing has been removed, marking a new era of essential Galaxy design that makes the entire series stand out,” he added.
