A new year means a new series of Samsung Galaxy S phones and with them a new selection of colors. But Samsung seems to be doing things a bit differently with the Samsung Galaxy S23 line compared to previous years.
For the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, we’ve seen one set of colors for the S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus, and another set for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, but for the S23 series, leaks suggest that all three phones will come in the same shades.
Below you’ll find all the shades we’ve heard rumored for the Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup, with all the most likely options expected for each phone – including the Galaxy S23 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
One of the shades we’ve heard of is Cotton Flower which, based on leaked photos like the one above, is probably a cream or off-white shade. Elsewhere we’ve heard mention of beige, which probably applies to this as well.
Multiple sources have mentioned color along these lines, and leaked photos have shown this shade, strongly suggesting that this will be one of the options.
It’s not the most inspiring finish looking at the images we’ve seen, but white always seems to be a popular color regardless, and it may be the Samsung Galaxy S23 series closest to it.
It also looks different than any shade of the Samsung Galaxy S22 – there was a cream color on offer, but it was more yellow. The S22 series is also available in pure white.

Misty Lilac seems like a fancy name for a blush going by the leaked photos you can see above. This shade has also been mentioned multiple times, so it’s likely to be offered at launch.
It appears to be a very light pink which is even paler and more understated than the rose gold shade you can get the Samsung Galaxy S22 in. So this too is a shade where current models are not available.

We’ve also heard a lot of mentions of a green tint, with one source claiming it’s called Botanic Green and sharing photos of what it might look like.
This is a bit more interesting and unusual than the previous two options, but may end up being less popular as a result. It looks a bit similar to the green shade of the Galaxy S22, but it is a bit brighter and paler.
Phantom Black is a classic Samsung shade we’ve seen before. It’s also just black, which is one of the most popular and common smartphone finishes.
Of course, there’s more than one kind of black, and this one seems to be the pretty muted, pale black that shows up in the leaked images.
This is another color we’ve heard of many times, so coupled with how popular this choice is, we expect to see it.
Light Gold / Rose Gold
The four colors above seem like the shades we’re most likely to see at the moment, but at least one source has also mentioned that there may be a Light Gold or Pink Gold option.
Now there’s a pink color above it, so they may be referring to that, but the leaked images don’t suggest there’s anything gold about it, so it could be something else. We wouldn’t count on seeing it though, as it hasn’t been widely mentioned.
White isn’t the color we’ve heard of by name for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, but one leak showed dummy three phones in a white shade that looks different from the Cotton Flower color above.
So we can’t rule this color out, but we’re also much less confident we’ll see it compared to other rumored shades.
Other possible shades
While the colors above are all the specific shades we’ve heard of, one source said there may be additional shades that are exclusive to Samsung stores.
This wouldn’t be unusual for the company so it’s believable and here we can see some differences in the color options for each model, with perhaps some shades of the Galaxy S23 Ultra you can’t have on the other two phones, and vice versa.
It’s unclear what shades these might be – unless they’re the lesser-known Light Gold or White options above – but there are plenty of possibilities. The Samsung Galaxy S22 series comes in all the colors that Samsung can choose from; including sky blue, burgundy, red, purple and other options.
Of course, the company is just as likely to pick something from an older model as well as new shades it hasn’t offered before.
