Now that Samsung has launched all its high-end smartphones for the year, the focus of leaks has shifted to the Galaxy S24 series. The South Korean firm's next-generation Galaxy S series phones are expected to go official in Q1 2024, but the exact launch date has been unknown. But that seems to have changed today.
Reliable tipster Ice Universe has revealed on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo that Samsung could launch the Galaxy S24 series on January 18. He states that this might not be the accurate date, but Samsung could most likely announce its next flagship smartphone around that time frame. This rumor lines up with an earlier report that claimed Samsung will launch the Galaxy S24 series earlier than usual to counter strong demand for the recently launched iPhone 15 series.
Leaked Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra specifications
The Galaxy S24 series could use the Exynos 2400 processor in Asia, Africa, and Europe, while Canada, China, and the US could get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 version of the smartphones. The Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ could have 12GB RAM and 256GB/512GB storage, while the Galaxy S24 Ultra could have up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage.
The Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ could use 50MP primary cameras, 12MP ultrawide cameras, and 10MP telephoto cameras. The Galaxy S24 Ultra could have a 200MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 10MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. It is rumored that all phones in the lineup could have QHD+ Super AMOLED screens with 2,500 nits peak brightness.
The Galaxy S24 could have a 4,000mAh battery, while the Galaxy S24+ will be powered by a 4,900mAh battery. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will come with a 5,000mAh battery. Samsung isn't changing the charging speeds on these phones compared to their predecessors. All these phones could also have two-way satellite connectivity for emergency situations.
