Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra: Summary

0
Less than a month remains until we are greeted by Samsung’s next top flagship, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which is officially getting announced January 17. The upcoming titanium monster has already leaked profusely, with pretty much everything known about the device already.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra: Summary

The largest and most feature-rich among Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 lineup will be the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The phone will inherit the large 6.8-inch display of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, as well as the built-in S Pen stylus. However, the fate of the extraordinary 10X periscope camera remains uncertain, as conflicting rumors circulate. The question looms: will Samsung choose to retain this impressive feature, or will it bid farewell?

The initial rumors reveal that Samsung won’t be changing the winning formula with the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Thus, we expect mostly minor and mostly evolutionary improvements, including but not limited to a faster new chipset, a larger battery, possibly faster charging, as well as a much brighter display. A new titanium design is also coming our way.

Here are the expected changes of the Galaxy S24 Ultra in a nutshell:

  • New titanium design to be exclusive to the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Gorilla Glass Armor at the front and back.
  • The phone will likely feature the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 exclusively around the globe.
  • New 5X telephoto instead of the 10X periscope, but the 100X Space Zoom is retained.
  • Samsung might use a brighter display, allegedly capable of hitting 2,600 nits of peak brightness.
  • Up to 12GB RAM might be available on the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
  • 256GB and 512GB storage options, possibly a 1TB version as well.
  • Satellite connectivity a possibility.
  • Tons of AI features and functionalities that will make the brunt of novelties on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Dynamic Lock Screen, Smart Keyboard, enhanced security.
  • Colors will include Titanium Gray, Black, Violet, and Yellow. Exclusive colors on Samsung.com are likely coming as well.

The rumor mill is already kicking into top gear, so tag along as we explore everything there is to know about the upcoming Galaxy S24 Ultra specs, features, and pricing.

Galaxy S24 Ultra camera features and specs

  • Wide: 200MP ISOCELL HP2SX 1/1.3″, 0.6µm pixels
  • Ultra-wide: 12MP
  • Telephoto: 3X 10MP
  • Periscope: 50MP 1/2.52″ Sony IMX854 5X telephoto, 0.7µm pixels
  • Front-facing: 12MP

Galaxy S24 Ultra storage options

A proper flagship should have lots of storage, even in the base version. The Galaxy S24 Ultra would most likely start at 256GB of internal storage, just as much as the Galaxy S23 Ultra has, and also offer 512GB of the stuff, as well as possibly a range-topping version with the whopping 1TB of storage. Of course, the latter is the most expensive one, but has enough storage to fit all the photos and videos you’re going to take with the phone.

Galaxy S24 Ultra design

  • Titanium is in, Armor Aluminum is out: The majority of rumors regarding the Galaxy S24 Ultra design claim that Samsung might ditch Armor Aluminum and instead utilize titanium for the frame of the phone. This could make the flagship more rigid and corrosion-resistant, as well as boost its “premium-ness”. The iPhone 15 Pro Max also substituted stainless steel for titanium, so it appears that the latter is quickly becoming the hot new commodity for flagships in 2023. Leakers already claim the titanium frame is 65% better than the old aluminum one, whatever that means.
  • What this means for you: This purported change in design would save the Galaxy S24 Ultra one gram of weight in comparison with the Galaxy S23 Ultra: 233gr (8.21 oz) vs 234gr (8.25 oz). This is peculiar, as titanium is normally much denser than aluminum, so it’s quite intriguing that Samsung has successfully shaved off some weight.
  • No more curved screens: With the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung is ditching curved screens for a predominantly flat design similar to the iPhone. This could slightly hurt the overall ergonomics of handling such a large device, but we trust that Samsung wouldn’t deliver an ergonomically inferior device.
  • Improved Gorilla Glass on board: The Galaxy S24 Ultra might come along with improved Gorilla Glass both at the front and at the back. Dubbed Gorilla Glass Armor, this one is likely a tougher successor to Gorilla Glass Victus 2 and would be a decent addition to the titanium-clad phone.

Should I wait for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra?

  • You should wait for the Galaxy S24 Ultra if you have kept yourself from upgrading to the Galaxy S22 Ultra/Galaxy S23 Ultra and are rocking an aging Galaxy flagship. Think Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. Upgrading to the Galaxy S24 Ultra from any of those will almost certainly give you insane value and a vast improvement of your overall phone experience.
  • You should not wait for the Galaxy S24 Ultra if you’ve just scored a flagship in the last two years and have no qualms about it. As flagship smartphones have peaked long ago and the overall new tech adoption has somewhat slowed down, upgrading every two years is no longer necessary. Thus, if you have a fairly recent phone that does the job for you just fine, it’s somewhat unlikely that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be the second coming of the Christ
