Samsung is saying goodbye to what can be considered a relatively successful year for this Korean brand. From the Galaxy S22 phone series, which is built on the principles of success of its previous generations, to the latest foldable phones of this company, all of them have grown significantly compared to the devices of 2021, and when it comes to facing a market reached the global recession, again it is Samsung that has been able to show better performance than other competitors.

There are already some pretty good ideas about how the flagship Galaxy S23 series will shape up, but there’s still a lot of room for Samsung to improve things next year. So in Here We have put forward our suggestions on how Samsung can spend 2023 better than 2022.
Provide more exciting folding devices
Let us be a little comfortable together. Basically, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 were the same phones from last year, with only a few updates. In fact, you have to try hard to find a clean line between the two.
It’s clear that Samsung will need to deliver more exciting foldables in 2023 if they want to maintain their commercial momentum and positive critical reception. There are plenty of ways for the company to go, such as offering significantly less creasing, dust resistance, a higher-quality foldable screen, or more advanced camera technology.
As previously suggested by Samsung, we could even be ready to see a Galaxy Z Fold 5 version with an integrated S Pen slot. After all, it seems like a logical step after the Z Fold 3 and 4, and S Pen support could bring a tangible change to the handset. However, with the likes of Honor and Oppo poised to finally bring their foldable phones to global markets, Samsung can no longer rely on its current assets next year.
to release a Galaxy Watch FE smart watch
The Galaxy Watch 5 series is really lovely, even though it was more of an evolution of the Galaxy Watch 4 line than a complete revolution. The Galaxy Watch 5, in particular, offers a great deal for its $279 price tag. So we’d really like to see if Samsung continues on this path for its high-end wearables.
Having said that, we also want the Korean brand to launch a Galaxy Watch FE so that in addition to features, it can compete well with its competitors when it comes to pricing. As such, Samsung has an affordable wearable to compete well with the likes of the Mobvoi Ticwatch E3, Fitbit Versa 3, and Garmin Venu Sq.
Samsung owes us a Galaxy S23 FE
Samsung is ditching the Galaxy S22 FE in 2022, which is disappointing news for fans of the affordable FE flagship series. Needless to say, everyone would really like to see the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE in 2023. A $600-$700 S23 FE could be a lucky addition to Samsung’s lineup, just as the Galaxy S20 FE made a splash in 2020.
It can be assumed that the upcoming Galaxy S23 FE will cut down on design (using plastic instead of glass) and cameras. But as long as the phone still offers superior power, water resistance, flexible cameras, and wireless charging, it should be a great deal. Moreover, it will help Samsung to fight against companies like Google.

Avoid creating a monopoly in specific ecosystem features
Samsung offers a wide range of ecosystem products, and its smartwatches and headphones are some of the best in their class. However, we noticed a worrying trend in 2022 with these products that really need to stop next year. Speaking of which, Samsung specifically needs a Galaxy smartphone for many of its product ecosystem features.
For example, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro only support high-bitrate audio, spatial audio, and automatic device switching when paired with a Galaxy phone. Everything does not end here; The Galaxy Watch 5 series relies on the Galaxy phone for key features like ECG readings and blood pressure monitoring. This is a very silly intentional limitation when the hardware clearly supports the feature.
Either way, we really hope Samsung makes sure that most of its ecosystem product features are available when paired with non-Galaxy phones in 2023. For now, it’s just a blatant, monopolistic attempt to lock customers into its own ecosystem.
Enable single fabric updates
It seems that Samsung has once again refused to provide one-size-fits-all updates for its smartphone series. One-piece updates are actually a more modern take on the system update process. Your phone will download and install a system update in the background while you’re using it, then seamlessly reboot your phone into the new update. But Samsung insists on using the old update method, which makes the phone virtually unusable while the update is installed. In this situation, you will not be able to use your phone for 10-20 minutes and you will have to stare at the “Install” screen during the entire installation process.
One can speculate why Samsung and some other brands might not be so keen on one-touch updates, as it requires more storage space than the old update method. But we think it’s a small price to pay for a very convenient but fully functional feature. Having said that, it looks like seamless updating could finally be a mandatory feature for Android 13.
This was a list of things that we think can help Samsung to stay in the Saudi trend in 2023. what is your opinion? Can Samsung make other changes to make its products more competitive and popular? Please share your opinion with us.
