I was given the opportunity yesterday to attend the media preview of Samsung Galaxy Space, which is a highly Instagrammable space by Samsung Malaysia Electronics. The event runs from 3 March 2023 (7pm) until 12 March 2023 at APW in Bangsar.
“Samsung is committed to seeking ways to spark and empower creativity in all its forms. With Galaxy Space, we are proud to provide a unique platform for youth to ignite their creativity while exploring the power of Nightography with the latest Galaxy S23 series.”
Denny Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics
Galaxy Space offers an Instagrammable setting which allows visitors to test the low light photography capabilities of the latest Galaxy S23 series in four experiential zones – The Alley, The Ballie, The Escape and Splash Art. The Alley features a dim neon-lit alley. The Ballie has a ball pit which you can play in. The Escape features some of KL’s coolest nightscapes, while Splash Art lets you unleash your inner artist and make a splash. Explore all four experiential zones and collect four stamps to redeem a cup of coffee upon completion of the full experience.
Samsung Malaysia has also collaborated with Pingmin market, the latest trending cultural and creative market, supporting local vendors from F&B to handicrafts. There will also be a range of trendy workshops scheduled throughout the duration of Galaxy Space, and daily activities such as Busker jamming, k-pop dance battles and more.
Fans also got the chance to meet Hakken, the famous Malaysian cosplayer from Sarawak, during a fan meet session on 4 March 2023.

The video at the top of this feature was shot with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. I enabled the video stabilisation and sped up the video 2x otherwise it has not been edited or overlaid with any filter.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system with improved Nightography capabilities that transform how the Galaxy S series optimizes photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions, resulting in sharper images and videos. Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and color tone.
In a Samsung Galaxy first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once. The Galaxy S23 series also introduces fast autofocus and the first Super HDR selfie camera, jumping from 30fps to 60fps, for noticeably better front-facing images and videos.
The Galaxy S23 series offers a suite of tools such as the Expert RAW app, available exclusively on Samsung Galaxy, which enables DSLR-style (Ed – this is to be taken with a pinch of salt) image shooting and editing in RAW and JPEG. Users can experiment with Multiple exposures photo art or capture a clear view of the Milky Way with Astrophoto settings, and now, after being downloaded on Galaxy S23, Expert RAW features can be accessed within Samsung’s native Camera app. Meanwhile, the new zoom capabilities on Galaxy Watch5 series’ Camera Controller app empower users to capture a perfectly framed shot right from their wrist.
Additional camera advancements include:
- Low-light or in situations that would normally create a blur, videos are stable with doubled optical image stabilizer (OIS) angles in all directions on Galaxy S23 Ultra.
- Recording videos feel more cinematic with enhanced 8K video at 30 frames per second with a wider angle.
- Advanced, object-based AI analyzes each detail in the frame, even down to minute facial features, such as hair and eyes, to carefully reflect a person’s dynamic characteristics.
- For an even more enhanced video experience, the new 360 Audio Recording feature on Galaxy Buds2 Pro creates multi-dimensional sound.
On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the cameras also gets an upgraded look with the contoured housing having been removed.
Samsung and Qualcomm optimized the Samsung Galaxy experience with the brand-new Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, the most powerful and efficient platform ever in a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the fastest Snapdragon available today. Meanwhile, on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, a 5000mAh battery powers a larger camera than Galaxy S22 Ultra without increasing the device’s size.
A newly designed CPU micro architecture boosts the processing abilities of the Galaxy S23 series by about 30 percent compared to the Galaxy S22 series. Capturing stunning photos in low light requires trillions of calculations per second, so Samsung Galaxy’s highly efficient NPU architecture has been optimized by 49 percent to balance performance and power while using an AI algorithm to help users take epic photos and videos. One of the most significant improvements to the Galaxy S23 series is the optimized GPU, which is approximately 41 percent faster compared to Galaxy 22 series and designed especially for power users.
In anticipation of the future of ultimate digital realism, Galaxy S23 Ultra comes ready to support real-time ray tracing as it comes to the mobile gaming mainstream. Users will be able to see noticeably more lifelike renderings of scenes, thanks to technology that simulates and tracks every ray of light. Plus, Samsung Galaxy’s vapour chamber, now bigger and on every Galaxy S23 series model, keeps the phone cooler.
Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 6.8-inch edge display comes with a reduced curvature to create a larger and flatter surface area for the best visual experience on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Samsung Galaxy’s unique Enhanced comfort feature allows users to adjust colour tones and contrast levels, lessening eye strain from screen time at night. Vision booster now adjusts at three levels of lighting instead of two to combat brightness and glare in daylight.
Since the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung Galaxy increases its use of recycled materials from six internal components in Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal and external components in Galaxy S23 Ultra. Galaxy S23 series also has a wider variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphone, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and glass and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, PET bottles and water barrels.
The new S series is the first to feature Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, offering durability for long-term use and consisting of an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content. Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone comes in a redesigned packaging box which applied paper made with 100 percent recycled paper.
The Galaxy S23 series is UL ECOLOGO® certified, acknowledging that the product has been certified for reduced environmental impact.
For users who want to extend the life of their device, the Galaxy S23 series can be sustained through the years with four generations of OS upgrades and five years of security updates. Users can also leverage programs such as Samsung Care+, a support service for accidental damages, repairs and more.
