The Next big thing from Samsung is going to be the Galaxy S24 series which will have three devices again like the current S23 series, the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 plus and The Galaxy S24 ultra. According to tipster RcloudS, the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24+ could see a 45% hike in fast charging support more insane battery life thanks to technology called Stacked battery technology, also known as "stacked cells," involves arranging multiple battery cells on top of each other to increase the capacity and performance of the battery. This technology allows for a higher energy density, meaning that more energy can be stored in the same amount of space. The cells are electrically connected in series or parallel to achieve the desired voltage and capacity. The use of stacked batteries can also improve the charging capabilities of devices, allowing for faster charging speeds. To mitigate the increased heat generated by stacked batteries, some manufacturers use cooling gels or other cooling solutions to ensure safe operation. You might like this:
Overall, stacked battery technology is a way for manufacturers to increase the battery life and performance of their devices, which is Great. Another thing is that these stacked batteries are less likely to explode than a single Lithium-ion battery. Samsung is reportedly testing for the stacked battery setup and the 65W fast charging on some Galaxy S24 models, and even if the company gives the green light to the use of stacked batteries for the Galaxy S24 series, there might not be enough supply to equip the Galaxy S24 model with them. As a result, the 65W and stacked battery tech will be offered on the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24+ or may even be exclusive to the ultra model.
The Galaxy S24 series should be unveiled during the first Unpacked event of 2024, which could take place in February. RcloudS says that Samsung is expected to hike the "rated" battery capacity of the Galaxy S24 Ultra to 5000mAh, which should result in a 10% higher typical battery capacity for the device in the same battery size. If you don’t know about the rated and typical battery capacity differences, tab S9 has 8160mAh rated battery capacity and the typical one is 8400 mAh. The use of stacked batteries for all its batteries would allow Samsung SDI to go head-to-head with its local rival LG Energy, which also employs the technology, as well as the Chinese companies ATL and BYD. Samsung SDI's plan to apply a capacity increase technology used for its electric car cells to smaller ones meant to go in Samsung smartphones or tablets is a way to package the battery components like the electrodes and electrolyte tighter for increased energy density. Stacking the anode and cathode would result in higher battery capacity for Samsung Galaxy phones. The rumor mill also suggests that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will sport 16GB of RAM while the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will each have 12GB inside. According to recent rumors, the Exynos 2400 SoC might be a hit if Samsung can get all the pieces right, and this might be the last chance for Samsung to prove that its Exynos SoC with 1+2+3+4 CPU config and chipset manufacturing process are top-notch. So, weirdly, there’s a chance that the base Galaxy S24 models with Exynos 2400 wil be great. That is, assuming Samsung’s next in-house chip will deliver great power and enough battery life to match the Snapdragon variants.
Pocket-lint says that it has been told by sources to expect an Exynos chip inside the 2024 Samsung flagship phones in some markets, including Europe. However, not everyone sees Samsung trying to sell Exynos-powered Galaxy S24 series handsets in every markets of Europe. Ben Wood, Chief Analyst and CMO of CCS Insight, told Pocket-lint, "I'd be surprised if Samsung decided to return to Exynos for the important European market, but we might see it in some smaller markets to ensure Samsung's in-house platform stays in the game. There's also likely an element of Samsung wanting to keep Qualcomm on its toes too, which may be what is driving these recent rumours." Talking about the Exynos 2400, Ice Universe, revealed there is an Exynos 2400 in the pipelines which will have 10 cores - 1x Cortex-X4 + 2x Cortex-A720 (higher frequency) + 3x Cortex-A720 (lower frequency) + 4x Cortex-520. it will also have RDNA2-based graphics unit with 6WGP. This has four times the compute units of the Xclipse 920 GPU in the Exynos 2200.
In conclusion, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 series is shaping up to be an exciting release, with rumors pointing towards the potential use of stacked batteries and the Exynos 2400 SoC in certain markets. Stacked batteries could allow for faster charging speeds and higher battery capacities, while the Exynos 2400 SoC could provide insane peak performance and power efficiency. However, it remains to be seen which markets will receive the Exynos-powered Galaxy S24 models, and whether stacked batteries will be reserved for only the Ultra model. We will have to wait for news.
