Samsung S24: Everything You Need to Know About the Upcoming Flagship

By ANAS KHAN 23 Min Read

The Samsung S24 isn’t expected to be released until early in the following year, but rumours about it are starting to surface. Given the success of its predecessor, this flagship phone will have high expectations.

The Galaxy S23 series from Samsung, which includes the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra, offers some of the greatest Android phones we’ve tested in addition to some of the top Samsung phones. Nevertheless, the Galaxy S24 seems to build upon these already strong smartphones with improved performance, improved camera technology, and more.

The rumours we currently know about the Galaxy S24 series are compiled below, and we’ll be sure to update this page whenever new ones surface. We also included the adjustments we hope Samsung engineers will take into consideration, if they are reading this, about the changes we would like to see made from the S23 to the Galaxy S24.

Samsung Galaxy S24: Release date predictions and prices

Samsung Galaxy S24: Release date predictions and prices

The Galaxy S24 series is most likely going to debut at a Galaxy Unpacked event in January or February of 2024. According to a rumour from @Tech_Reve, Samsung may push back the release of the Galaxy S23 by “around a month” in response to the iPhone 15. The Galaxy S23 was released on February 1. That would indicate a launch event in early January.

A South Korean story that predicts an early 2024 Galaxy S24 launch, with Samsung allegedly hosting an event in San Francisco, is giving that rumour a boost.

Though we assume the event will still be primarily focused on the new phones, the S24 phones may share the stage with other new Samsung gadgets, similar to how the Galaxy S23 arrived alongside the Galaxy Book 3 series this year.

Although the exact cost is unknown, we believe Samsung will maintain the phones’ current $799, $999, and $1,199 price points. Since the Galaxy S23 was marginally more expensive than the Galaxy S22 at £849/£1,049/£1,249 and AU$1,349/AU$1,649/AU$1,949, we especially expect this for the Australian and U.K. markets, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy S24: Design and Display

Samsung Galaxy S24: Design and Display

With the Galaxy S24, we assume Samsung will maintain its current three-part Galaxy S series. This implies that the 6.1-inch regular model, 6.6-inch Galaxy S24 Plus, and 6.8-inch Galaxy S24 Ultra would likely make up the expanded range.

That being said, there’s a chance the Galaxy S24 Plus will be slightly bigger. Although a 0.05-inch gain may not seem like much, it could have a significant effect on other characteristics as well because a larger display probably translates into a larger body. 

The S24 and S24 Plus, according to Leaker Tech Reve, will maintain the same design as the S23. However, Samsung has been making minor design changes to its phones every year, so they might not be exactly the same. Furthermore, according to the same source who claims the Galaxy S23 Plus would have a larger screen, the Galaxy S24 Ultra—or even all versions—might have titanium sides, which would be in line with what Apple did with the iPhone 15 Pro models this autumn.

We’re not sure how the Galaxy S24 series’ design will change, but the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus are probably going to continue having curved corners and flat sides, while the Galaxy S24 Ultra is likely going to continue carrying the Galaxy Note’s design cues, including curved edges and right-angled corners as well as purported titanium side rails on at least the Ultra model if not all versions.

According to leaker IceUniverse, the Galaxy S24 Ultra should weigh a little less than the Galaxy S23 Ultra, even though titanium is a heavier metal than the aluminium that Samsung presently employs for its top phones.

Ahead of further detailed leaks, render artist Technizo Concept attempted to design the Galaxy S24 Ultra. It shares a lot of similarities with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, with the exception of a revised camera block design.

Although we haven’t seen any colour rumours for the Galaxy S24, we have heard that the Galaxy S24 Ultra may be available in violet, yellow, black, or ay. Based on Samsung’s past trends, it’s likely that a few of these colours will also be available for entry-level models.

As for the screens themselves, all models should have AMOLED panels with a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz; the normal and Plus models should have a minimum refresh rate of 48 Hz, while the Ultra model will have a more efficient minimum of 1 Hz. However, Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy S24 and S24+ may eventually receive the Ultra treatment and be equipped with LTPO panels, which would allow them to utilise completely adjustable refresh rates similar to the Ultra. According to rumours, the Galaxy S24 Plus could still have a decent 2,500 nits, but the Galaxy S24 Ultra could have an exceptionally bright display—possibly as high as 2,800 nits.

It’s also possible that the Galaxy S24 Plus may have a resolution increase to QHD instead of FHD, like the Galaxy S23 Plus. This should result in a greater gap between the Galaxy S24 Plus and the standard Galaxy S24, but a much smaller one between the S24 Plus and the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Samsung may also increase screen real estate and is rumoured to have thinner bezels on the Galaxy S24, according to numerous leakers.

Samsung Galaxy S24: Cameras

Samsung Galaxy S24: Cameras

The regular Galaxy S24 devices’ cameras are not expected to see major upgrades very soon. The one significant rumour that has surfaced, however, states that the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus will sport the identical 50MP cameras found on the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus. The remaining 12 MP ultrawide/10 MP 3x telephoto/12 MP selfie sensors from the S23 models should also be available on the corresponding S24 models; in fact, we have heard more recently that the 12 MP selfie camera is still in use.

It appears that the 200MP primary camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra won’t be changing, and neither will the 12MP ultrawide or 12MP selfie cameras. The Ultra’s camera sensor, according to a rumour, will reportedly measure one inch, making it one of the biggest on the market and larger than the sensor that is supposed to be found in the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

As part of the Galaxy S24 Ultra update, one or both of its 10MP telephoto cameras might also experience issues.

According to leaker RGcloudS, the S24 Ultra’s telephoto cameras may benefit from a longer zoom, better optics, a larger sensor, and a wider aperture for brighter photos. That might lead to a more impressively variable zoom and a maximum magnification of up to 150x (now 100x on the Ultra). Since then, though, we’ve heard that the Ultra model’s highest magnification will once again be 100x.

The existence of a hybrid zoom on the Galaxy S24 Ultra that can alternate between a 3x and a 10x optical zoom is confirmed by another source. This could allow you to change the camera’s magnification without having to crop pixels, much like the Sony Xperia 1 IV.

At least one leaker anticipates significant things from the telephoto lens, whatever modifications Samsung ultimately makes to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. When IceUniverse tweeted in August, he clarified that he believed the jump would come from a new 50MP sensor. “I have full confidence that the Galaxy S24 Ultra has improved the performance of the 3x camera, which means that the image quality of 3x~10x will bring a significant improvement,” Drake wrote.

Another leaker, Yogesh Brar, predicts that the S23 Ultra’s 3X telephoto camera will be swapped out for a 50MP telephoto lens with a 3x zoom; the existing 10MP camera with a 10x zoom will remain. On the other hand, Ice Universe thinks that the present 3x telephoto camera will remain unchanged and that a new 5x telephoto camera may be created using the 50MP sensor.

Samsung S24: Specs and Performance

It should come as no surprise that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. Since Samsung often uses the same chips in all of its flagship phones, we can assume that this chipset will also be found in other Galaxy S24 variants. However, more recently, rumours have surfaced that Samsung may provide the most modern Snapdragon silicon in the Ultra model globally, with the S24 and S24 Plus models using an Exynos 2400 CPU, depending on the location in which you purchase the phone.

Ice Universe, a tech tipster, claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will use a mix of prime, performance, and efficiency cores to provide greater power than its predecessor while preserving the Gen 2’s degree of efficiency. One purported benchmark has already surfaced for this, outperforming the Galaxy S23 but falling short of the iPhone 14 Pro or the iPhone 15 Pro’s suspected specs.

According to a different claim, a GPU that is up to 50% quicker will be a huge graphics upgrade for the Galaxy S24. Despite the apparent gap in CPU power, this might theoretically outperform the iPhone 15 Pro in demanding programs and games. Additionally, it is believed to provide improvements in CPU and AI performance, as well as support for new generative models.

According to what some people claim, it’s unclear if the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be included in every Galaxy S24 model. According to other sources, Samsung may be thinking about switching back to Exynos chipsets for select Galaxy S24 versions. Which chipset would be sent to which regions is unknown, though it has been speculated that it would be Europe, as it formerly was.

Although previous Galaxy S models with Exynos processors were never as good as those with Snapdragon processors, Samsung seems to be making an effort to close that difference. According to leaked Geekbench evaluations, the Exynos 2400 is outperforming Apple’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and A16 Bionic in terms of multicore performance, but it can’t match the A17 Pro processor found in the iPhone 15 or the suspected Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 results.

A leaker stated that only the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24 Plus will run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, contradicting a story that indicated Samsung would once again employ an optimised version of the Snapdragon CPU, as it had done with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. An Exynos chipset would be included in the basic Galaxy S24.

It is stated that the RAM capacity of the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus will be 12GB, as opposed to the 8GB of RAM present in the S23 variants. To access more RAM, you might have to shell out more cash for the priciest storage options. While confirming the RAM increase, a different leaker stated that the S24 Ultra will have 16GB of RAM.

The same leaker indicates that the base edition of the Galaxy S24 will come with 256GB of storage, matching the offerings of the Plus and Ultra variants. Other sources have confirmed this; therefore, we hope the assertion is accurate. Before we really believe that, though, we’d like to see leakers with more proven track records make that claim.

Samsung Galaxy S24: Battery life and charging

There have been several rumours floating around regarding the battery of the Galaxy S24 Ultra and S24 Plus, especially in regard to a new design. According to reports, Samsung will employ stacked batteries in both phones, which will improve energy density without growing in size. As per research, Samsung has the potential to increase its energy density by up to 10%. 

According to early rumours, the Galaxy S24 Plus and S24 Ultra would have the same 4,700 mAh and 5,000 mAh capacities as their S23 predecessors. But a report about the bezels around the screens of the new phones also claims that the Galaxy S24 Plus’s battery could be increased to 4,900 mAh.

The S24 Ultra’s charging speed may also improve to 65W from 45W thanks to the revised design. However, the S24 series appears to have already received Chinese certification for use; according to the documents, the standard Galaxy S24 will have 25W charging, while the Plus and Ultra variants will have 45W charging. It’s possible that we won’t get this after all.

Although there has been no word on the Galaxy S24, it is possible that the next generation of smartphones may use the same 3,900 mAh battery. It is unknown at this time whether the S24 and S24 Plus’s current 25W and 45W charging speeds will increase.

But overall, faster charging would be pretty great, especially since the iPhone 15 series is finally expected to support USB-C.

Samsung Galaxy S24: What we want to see

Faster charging

Even the 45W-compatible Samsung Galaxy S23 devices have some of the slowest charging of any new smartphone. Samsung should improve the Galaxy S24’s charging speed by following OnePlus and other companies lead. It’s handy to be able to fully charge your phone in about 30 minutes. It would be an excellent idea to go to 60W.

Price freeze

This one is for consumers in the UK, Australia, and other countries who had to shell out a little bit extra cash for the Galaxy S23 series as opposed to their previous Samsung flagships. It would be very appreciated if the price of its phones remained constant for an additional year or two, as this would make the best technology accessible to a wider spectrum of consumers. Additionally, it will prevent Samsung from pressuring customers to switch to less expensive phones like the Google Pixel or OnePlus.

More RAM/storage

The Galaxy S23’s default RAM and storage are among the least generous on a premium phone. The option to get more RAM on a normal Galaxy S24 would be beneficial for those who prefer the smaller size but need more storage capacity for apps, photographs, and videos, or the extra RAM for better app multitasking, even if the default stays that low for affordability reasons.

Pen upgrades

Samsung hasn’t made many updates to the S Pen stylus that now comes pre-installed with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, except for lowering latency. More Air Actions and cross-device interoperability, like what the S Pen Pro offers, are just two examples of new features that might improve a section of the phone that Samsung’s competitors have largely ignored.

Optional One UI

This is probably the most improbable request and only a select few will find it useful. To make Samsung’s flagship phones more enthusiast-friendly, an option to disable the One UI-based changes to stock Android would be appreciated by users who prefer a “purer” Android experience.


The Samsung Galaxy S24 is set to launch in early 2024, with rumours indicating it will improve on the Galaxy S23 series, which includes the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra. The rumours suggest that the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s chipset will feature enhanced performance, better camera hardware, and more. The Galaxy S24 series is expected to arrive at a Galaxy Unpacked event in January or February 2024, with an early January launch event. The phones are expected to be priced at $799, $999, and $1,199, with a focus on the U.K. and Australian markets. The Galaxy S24 Ultra’s optical zoom is expected to be down, but it should still offer 100x maximum zoom.

Samsung is set to release the Galaxy S24, a new smartphone that will likely consist of a 6.1-inch standard model, a 6.6-inch Galaxy S24 Plus, and a 6.8-inch Galaxy S24 Ultra. The Galaxy S24 Plus is expected to be slightly larger, with a 0.05-inch increase in size. The design of the Galaxy S24 series is expected to be similar to the S23 models but with slight tweaks each year. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is also expected to feature titanium sides, similar to Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro models.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to be slightly lighter than the S23 Ultra, with curved corners and flat sides. The Galaxy S24 Ultra could come in black, grey, violet, and yellow colours, with some colour rumours suggesting it will also be offered on the basic models. The display is expected to be AMOLED panels with a 120Hz max refresh rate, a 48Hz minimum refresh rate on the regular and Plus models, and a more efficient 1Hz minimum on the Ultra. The Galaxy S24 Ultra could also feature narrower bezels. The camera system is expected to be similar to the S23 and S24 Plus models, with the remaining 12MP ultrawide/10MP 3x telephoto/12MP selfie sensors.


Is there going to be a Samsung S24?

Beginning the following year, Galaxy phones will feature satellite services, according to Park Yong-in, President of System LSI at Samsung. A quite obvious hint concerning the Galaxy S24 series, which is anticipated in early 2024, is given.

What Samsung phone is coming out in 2024?

With its Galaxy S24 series, which is scheduled to debut in early 2024, Samsung hopes to transform the smartphone industry with its cutting-edge AI integration. The business intends to launch tools that will let consumers produce tales and material with little to no input, modelled by ChatGPT and Google Bard.

Will there be a S24 Ultra?

Yes, we are already discussing what is expected to be Samsung’s next major flagship smartphone for the upcoming year—the replacement for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It is probable that Samsung will integrate its ISOCELL Zoom Anywhere feature into the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
