The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is going to be Samsung’s next big thing with powerful camera system, innovative display technology, newer battery tech and other notable improvements. Enhanced Camera Capabilities: One of the standout features of the Galaxy S24 Ultra is its rumored camera system. According to tipster Ice Universe, the device may sport a 50MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. This camera is expected to utilize a larger 1/2.52-inch sensor, potentially the ISOCELL GM5, surpassing the 1/3.52-inch 10MP sensor found in its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The larger sensor size and higher resolution are anticipated to deliver excellent image quality, even at non-native zoom levels, such as 5x.
The 50MP telephoto camera on the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to enhance low-light photography at 3x zoom. Thanks to the use of 4-in-1 pixel binning mode, the camera can combine multiple pixels into one, resulting in improved image quality and sensitivity in low-light conditions. This improvement offers users the ability to capture clear and detailed photos at 3x zoom, even in challenging lighting environments. With these camera specifications and advancements, the Galaxy S24 Ultra aims to deliver impressive zoom performance and exceptional image quality, particularly in low-light situations. Users can expect to enjoy the benefits of the 50MP 3x zoom camera, which will provide excellent zoom capabilities even at the non native zoom levels without the need for a rumored 3x to 5x variable camera system. Furthermore, the new camera sensor might enable the Galaxy S24 Ultra to shoot 8K 30fps videos using the telephoto camera, a feature not currently available in Samsung's lineup. Samsung is expected to heavily market the improved zoom quality of the Galaxy S24 Ultra's camera, enhancing user experience in photography and videography. Additionally, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to feature a 200MP primary camera, the same one as the current S23 Ultra. Same goes for the 12MP selfie camera. Regarding the periscope camera, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to utilize the same 10MP periscope camera sensor found in its predecessor with very little improvements. This telephoto camera sensor enables 10x optical zoom, allowing users to capture detailed shots even at a distance. The 10MP telephoto camera, combined with the rumored 50MP 3x zoom camera, suggests that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will offer excellent zoom capabilitie
Advanced Display Technology: The Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumored to incorporate cutting-edge display technology, known as "M13." Samsung, a leading manufacturer of OLED screens, is continuously pushing the boundaries of display performance. While the iPhone 15 family is expected to adopt current advanced M12 OLED panels, the Galaxy S24 lineup could introduce the new M13 technology just months later. The M13 technology is expected to improve overall display quality and potentially reduce the thickness of screens. This development is likely to benefit devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 6, Z Flip 6, iPhone 16 Pro, and 16 Pro Max. The Galaxy S24 and S24+ models sharing this advancement is also possible, depending on mass production capabilities. Design & build: The Galaxy S24 Ultra is becoming lighter than its predecessor. but that too while getting tougher. Can you believe it? The upcoming flagship from Samsung is rumored to weigh 233g, a whole 1g lighter than the Galaxy S23 Ultra but even then it’s much more durable and premium by utilizing titanium frame instead of Armor Aluminum frame. But the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to retain the sleek design of its predecessor, the boxy Galaxy Note aesthetic. And of course, being a Samsung flagship, you can rest assured that it will feature some variant of Gorilla Glass on both the front and rear, plus IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
Potential Processor Options: Recent reports suggest that Samsung may adopt different processor options for its Galaxy S24 series. According to tipster Digital Chat Station, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset could come at a higher price compared to its predecessor. This might lead Samsung to explore alternative options, such as utilizing its own Exynos 2400 SoC for the majority of Galaxy S24 devices. By doing so, Samsung could potentially equip the base versions of the Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra with 12GB of RAM, an increase from the 8GB found in the 2023 flagship models and 256GB base model for the base S24. The Galaxy S24 Ultra might even offer an impressive 16GB of RAM paired with 1TB of storage.
These potential upgrades in RAM and storage would enhance the device's performance and user experience. But we also know that the Exynos 2400 is gonna have 10 core CPU unlike the snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with 8 CPU cores. But that’s not the whole story for sure. I have separate videos on both the SoCs to give you an a better idea.
Battery and Fast Charging: The Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumored to come equipped with a 5,000mAh battery. Additionally, the device is expected to support 65W fast charging, thanks to stacked battery technology. Although this feature is still under testing, it holds the potential to provide users with a speedy and convenient charging experience while providing more mAh at the same volume. With a larger battery capacity(S24 plus will come with 4900mAh battery) and faster charging capabilities(s24 plus and the S24 Ultra), the Galaxy S24 series aims to offer improved battery life and reduced downtime.
Satellite Connectivity Possibility: In an intriguing development, the South Korean Minister of Science and ICT, Lee Jong-ho, stated that the domestic smartphone industry plans to commercialize a satellite system for 5G mobile devices by 2024. This statement suggests that the Galaxy S24 flagship series, expected to be released early next year, could potentially offer satellite connectivity. If implemented, this feature would allow users to stay connected in areas with limited or no terrestrial network coverage, offering a new level of communication reliability. Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is poised to be an impressive flagship smartphone, with rumored advancements in camera technology, display capabilities, processor options, battery features, and the potential for satellite connectivity. I will keep you people updated in the future about the Galaxy S24 series. Sources Android Headlines Ice Universe Korean publisher Digital Chat Station SamMobile
