Samsung may unveil its Galaxy S24 series earlier than usual, possibly in January 2024, as reported by Seoul Economic Daily. They plan to host a launch event in the U.S., likely in San Francisco, where they introduced the Galaxy S23.
This series is expected to comprise three models: the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra. Anticipate several intriguing changes. One potential shift involves the reintroduction of Exynos chips in high-end phones.
The Galaxy S24 and S24+ may utilize Exynos 2400 chips for most regions, while Canada, China, and the U.S. may receive Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 versions. The S24 Ultra is set to exclusively employ the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. The Exynos 2400 chip brings substantial performance improvements.
Rumored enhancements also encompass a titanium frame for the S24 Ultra, LTPO Dynamic AMOLED 2x screens for all models, and upgraded cameras. Expect exceptionally bright screens, capable of reaching up to 2,400 nits. These phones will run on Android 14-based One UI 6.1 and receive a minimum of four major Android OS updates.
The Galaxy S24 and S24+ might sport a 50MP primary rear camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 10MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP selfie camera. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumored to feature a 200MP primary rear camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 10MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x zoom (optical), and a 12MP front camera.
In terms of batteries, the S24 could house a 4,000mAh battery, the S24+ a 4,900mAh battery, and the S24 Ultra is likely to retain a 5,000mAh battery, along with S Pen support. Fast charging options include 45W for the S24+ and S24 Ultra, and 25W for the S24.
All three models may offer wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, with the potential for two-way satellite communication for emergency messaging.
