The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is creating quite a buzz in the tech community, as rumors and leaks about its potential features and upgrades continue to surface. According to reliable tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S24 Plus is expected to feature a 6.65-inch display, slightly larger than its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Plus, which sports a 6.6-inch screen. While this increase may seem minor, it could mean the bezels will be thinner by 0.05inch because Ice Universe also suggests that both the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will have thinner bezels compared to the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+, enhancing the overall design. Additionally, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ are rumored to feature LTPO OLED panels Finally, offering a variable refresh rate of 1-120Hz, which improves power efficiency and battery life. If you don't know the S23 and S23+ has 120Hz LTPS panels which can switch its refresh rate from 120Hz to all the way as low as 48Hz. We also heard that there is a big chance that the next Galaxy S Ultra model might come with a 144Hz Display. This isn't gonna be a massive change over the current 120Hz panel but it’s a good upgrade for sure if it comes.
Samsung is reportedly increasing the battery capacity of the Galaxy S24 series as well. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to retain the same 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor, while the Galaxy S24+ might see a noticeable jump from the 4,700mAh cell in the S23+ to 4,900mAh. Furthermore, rumors suggest that both the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24+ could receive a significant boost in fast charging support, potentially reaching 65W. This improvement may be achieved through the implementation of stacked batteries. According to a recent report from South Korea, Samsung's SDI division, responsible for battery research and development, is exploring the use of stacked batteries in the Galaxy S24 series. Stacked batteries offer higher energy density, enabling increased capacity within the same volume. This advancement could result in a more compact phone or create space for additional components, enhancing the overall user experience or introducing more bigger camera sensors(in the future).
But contrary to previous rumors, it appears that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will retain the same 4-camera configuration as its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The setup is expected to include a 200MP main shooter, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and 10x and 3x telephoto cameras. While the 10x telephoto camera is anticipated to receive minor improvements, there won't be a change from a 3x to a 5x telephoto camera either as previously rumored. The primary camera for the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S25 Ultra is likely to be the same 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor, launched with the current S23 Ultra. This sensor is actually made for specifically Samsung galaxy devices. That means Samsung will have to use this sensor for future generations of Galaxy S ultra models to fully utilize the sensor by improving the software experience over time just like what they did with 108 megapixel sensor. It does make sense because developing another 200 megapixel camera sensor will make the cost of the phone more than what it will be with the same 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor because of R&D.
The Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra should share the same 12MP sensor as the 2023 models. Reusing this year’s sensor doesn’t necessarily mean selfie photography won’t see any improvements next year, but all will happen through the software. The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is rumored to deliver exciting features and upgrades. From design changes like the Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumored to come with a titanium frame with improved durability and scratch resistant capabilities and display enhancements to battery capacity improvements, Samsung is working towards creating a compelling flagship lineup. But it's important to remember that these plans can change because we are still a bit too far away from the launch event. But surely I will let you guys know anything more I get to know about the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra. Stay tuned for more information on Samsung's next-generation smartphones.
