BELLEVUE, Wash. Feb. 1, 2023 

  • What’s the news: The new Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup is here and only T-Mobile’s network can unleash their full potential with 5G standalone three-carrier aggregation now live in parts of the network.  Simply put, our network enables faster speeds and better responsiveness than phones without that network capability – that’s 16% faster on average! 
  • Why it matters: Millions of Americans upgrading to a new phone shouldn’t be held back by their provider. With the Un-carrier's leading 5G network, T-Mobile customers can tap into the latest network capabilities on the newest smartphones. 
  • Who it’s for: Anyone looking to get the most out of their latest 5G device … meaning faster speeds, better responsiveness and 5G in more places than ever before. 

T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced it’s kicking off pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, S23+ and S23 in stores and online here with availability starting Friday, Feb. 17. And only T-Mobile’s network can light up 5G standalone three-carrier aggregation, unleashing the new 5G devices to their full potential with faster speeds and better responsiveness than phones without it. New and existing customers can get the Samsung Galaxy S23+ for free (up to $1000 off) when trading in on Magenta MAX or the Samsung Galaxy S23 for free (up to $800 off) when adding a line on Magenta MAX via 24 monthly bill credits … plus even more deals on almost any plan including business.

“T-Mobile customers get a no compromises experience: the leading 5G network and industry-leading value. Now, we’re taking that experience to the next level with new speed and performance boosting technology (5G standalone three-carrier aggregation) available with the Galaxy S23 lineup only on T-Mobile’s network,” said Mike Sievert, CEO at T-Mobile. “ The Un-carrier is the only place you can unleash the full potential of Samsung’s latest super phones.”

Leading 5G Network

As America’s leader in 5G, starting 2023 off with even more network awards, T-Mobile continues to be ahead of the game as the only wireless provider to enable 5G standalone three-carrier aggregation in parts of the network — combining three channels of mid-band 5G. That’s like adding more lanes on a highway where traffic is free to zoom freely and faster than before.

Just take a look at how the Samsung Galaxy S21 (without three-carrier aggregation) compares to the new Samsung Galaxy S23 on T-Mobile!

This just goes to show why upgrading to the latest devices with the latest network capabilities can make a real impact with faster speeds and better responsiveness than ever before. A device with three-carrier aggregation enabled can be 16% faster on average than one without it. In fact, T-Mobile engineers have seen peak speeds topping 3 Gbps! And it doesn’t end there. As T-Mobile's momentum continues, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series will also be among the first to leverage 5G standalone four-carrier aggregation in the future.

All three of the Galaxy S23 smartphones are enabled with this capability. To help decide which of the Galaxy S23 lineup to choose from, check out the full list of offers and device specs below:
