An alleged leak coming from a Korean carrier may have confirmed the Galaxy S23 and S23+ design along with the pre-order bonuses along with the apparent preorder date. Based on the information provided, the first of a few Galaxy Unpacked events for the Galaxy S23 series will take place on January 5th, 2023.
The Galaxy S23 Series Will be Going Official on January 5th, 2023, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro to Arrive as a Pre-Order Gift
We are still not sure if the poster below is real or not but if it is real, then it means that KT has a pre-registration program for the Galaxy S23 flagship and it is already in place. The poster also talks about how you will be able to register for the devices on December 23rd, later this year.
You can have a look at the poster below:

The promotional poster we are looking at seemingly confirms a number of details about the upcoming Galaxy S23 series. Even though it only shows the S23 and the S23+, it does give us a good idea as to how the devices are going to look. The poster also indicates that pre-ordering the Galaxy S23 phones is going to get you Galaxy Buds 2 Pro as a gift or for a lower price. However, as always, pre-order gifts will vary based on the region. So, your region might receive something that is entirely different.
If the Galaxy S23 series does indeed go official earlier than the normal time, this is not going to be the first time Samsung would be taking this route. This has happened in the past as well, where Samsung announced devices earlier than the pattern they have. We did know that the first quarter would normally be the timeframe, but January is not what we were expecting.
