The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is coming, and a recent rumor suggested the devices will launch on January 17. That information was shared by the Korean media. Now, a reliable source actually confirmed that info, he confirmed the rumored Galaxy S24 series launch date.

Reliable source just confirmed the rumored Galaxy S24 series launch date

The tipster in question is Max Jambor, and he shared the info via X. He quoted a tweet in which January 17 was mentioned as the launch date, and flat-out said he could confirm that.

That article actually said that the phones will launch in San Francisco, so that’s what seems to be happening. Yes, that will be a global launch of the Galaxy S24 series. It’s not the first time Samsung hosted its press event in San Francisco.

As a reminder, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 launched in Korea a couple of months ago. Samsung doesn’t have a tendency of hosting global launch events in its homeland, but it made an exception for those two phones.

In any case, as expected, we’ll see the Galaxy S24 series break cover in January. We already know a lot about each of those smartphones, as plenty of information leaked up to this point.

These three phones won’t be all that much different from their predecessors

The three devices won’t be all that different from their predecessors, design-wise. The biggest change will be the flat display on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The Galaxy S23 Ultra had a curved panel, and so did its predecessors. Samsung is ditching curved displays, at least for now. All three Galaxy S24 series phones will have flat panels.

Speaking of displays, all three devices will also come with an LTPO AMOLED display. Those panels will offer a 120Hz refresh rate. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy will fuel them in some markets, while Samsung will use its Exynos 2400 SoC in other regions. We presume that Europe will get the Exynos model, but we can’t confirm that. Just to be clear, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is tipped to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy globally, that model won’t feature the Exynos 2400 if rumors are to be believed.
