    Samsung's next-generation flagship smartphone has cleared one more hurdle on its way to the official announcement. The Galaxy S24 Ultra has been certified by NBTC (National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission), which is Thailand's testing and certification body for mobile phones and other telecommunication devices.

    The Galaxy S24 Ultra cleared the NBTC certification in Thailand earlier today, and it reveals that the phone is manufactured in South Korea. The device's model number is SM-S928B/DS, which refers to the global model of the phone with a dual-SIM card slot. It also reveals that the upcoming smartphone features 5G, 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G support. Since the phone has already received several certifications, it is clear that it is almost ready to launch.
