In the last couple of years, Samsung has released its Galaxy S series in January. And we expect the same thing to happen in 2024. Some recent rumors floating around are pointing to a January 17 announcement, which would likely mean that the phones will start shipping by the end of January. However, you don’t have to wait long to hear about the specs to expect with these new smartphones, as there is a huge leak that just surfaced.
Thanks to Windows Report, we know just about everything to expect from the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra.
The Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus will come in four colors: Onyx Black, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow. The Galaxy S24 will maintain a smaller screen, measuring in at 6.2 inches with an FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It’ll get the Exynos 2400 processor with a 4,000mAh capacity battery inside. While the Galaxy S24 Plus model will come with a larger 6.7-inch QHD+ resolution this year, it’ll still remain with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Plus model actually gets the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor with a larger 4,900mAh capacity battery. With what the report lists as “Super Fast Charging 2.0”, hopefully, that means we’ll get faster than 25W charging this year.
The cameras are the same on both models, with a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide, and a 10-megapixel telephoto at 3x optical zoom. Both also use a 12-megapixel front camera.
Interestingly, the memory will differ here, with 8GB for the Galaxy S24 and 12GB for the Galaxy S24 Plus. And again, on storage, things are a bit different, with the Galaxy S24 having 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models, while the Galaxy S24 Plus will get 256GB and 512 GB.
Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra will be the most powerful smartphone in 2024
Apparently, the design won’t change much on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The only real change here will be the curved display, which is out for a new flat display. This is something we’ve been wanting Samsung to do for years. And it’s finally coming next month.
Specs-wise, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is shaping up exactly as you’d expect. This includes a 6.8-inch QHD+ resolution display with an Adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. It’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor inside, with relatively the same cameras as the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but slightly refreshed.
Samsung’s popular 200-megapixel camera will remain as the main sensor here. With a 12-megapixel ultrawide, a 10-megapixel telephoto for 3x optical zoom, and finally, a 50-megapixel telephoto camera for 5x optical zoom. On the front, Samsung is sticking with its tried-and-true 12-megapixel camera.
Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will stick with a base storage of 256GB. There will also be 512GB and 1TB options available. All three storage options will come with 12GB of RAM next year, too.
Contrary to previous leaks, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will stick with a 5000 mAh capacity battery. And it will also have Super Fast Charging 2.0, like the Galaxy S24 Plus. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will also come with WiFi 7, as we recently saw from its stop at the FCC.
Expect loads of AI injected into the Samsung Galaxy S24
AI is the new buzzword that everyone is using, and Samsung won’t be left out. The company is expected to add AI for a ton of its apps and features. According to information obtained from the Windows Report, it’ll include some rather exciting capabilities. This includes the ability to translate messaging apps in real time. And this will work with over a dozen languages.
Samsung is also looking to incorporate generative AI that will help you edit and improve your photos. Which sounds a whole lot like what Magic Editor can do on the Google Pixel 8 series. And finally, Samsung is expected to use AI to offer enhanced search capabilities. This means you can highlight any given item on an image and find additional information about it.
We’re less than two months out from Samsung actually announcing the Galaxy S24 series, so rumors and leaks are coming in hot and heavy right now. But the wait isn’t going to be long.
