The Next Samsung Galaxy S24 Series: What We Know So Far
As Samsung gears up to unveil its next flagship smartphones — Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra — on January 17, early leaks have hinted at some exciting features and specifications.
Rumors suggested that the regular Galaxy S24 could use either an Exynos 2400 SoC or a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, depending on the region. However, a new leak now indicates that the regular Galaxy S24 will ship with the Exynos 2400 SoC in all global markets. On the other hand, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to run on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in every market, setting the stage for powerful performance worldwide.
Well-known tipster WigettaGaming leaked the specifications of the upcoming Galaxy S24 through a promo chart on X (formerly Twitter). According to the post, the Exynos 2400 chip will power the Galaxy S24 in every country except the US and Canada, where it will run on a tweaked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC called “Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC for Galaxy.”
The Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24+ are expected to pack the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC for Galaxy with overclocked CPU and GPU cores across all markets. This promises a significant performance boost compared to the previous Galaxy S23 lineup, which launched worldwide with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.
Display and Camera Enhancements
The Galaxy S24 family is said to come with Android 14-based One UI 6.1 and feature AMOLED LTPO displays with variable refresh rates ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz. The handset sizes are expected to vary as well, with the Galaxy S24 sporting a 6.2-inch full-HD+ panel, the S24+ with a 6.7-inch QHD+ panel, and the S24 Ultra featuring a larger 6.8-inch QHD+ panel. Additionally, the Ultra variant is rumored to come with a 200-megapixel quad camera setup, delivering impressive photographic capabilities, while the regular models could feature a 50-megapixel triple camera unit.
When it comes to battery capacity, Samsung is said to pack a 4,000mAh battery on the base Galaxy S24 model, while the Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra could get 4,900mAh and 5,000mAh batteries, respectively. These enhanced battery capacities are expected to provide longer usage times and improved overall performance.
As the anticipation builds for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S24 series, it’s clear that Samsung is focusing on delivering a powerful and feature-packed lineup of smartphones to cater to a wide range of user needs. With the combination of top-tier processors, enhanced display and camera features, and improved battery capacities, the upcoming Galaxy S24 series is poised to make a significant impact in the smartphone market.
