Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S24 Series, is reportedly set to be announced at the Unpacked event, which is said to take place on January 18 and will be made available by the end of January. We have some time before the release of the Galaxy S24 series. However, we already have critical specifications of the device that have surfaced online, giving us an idea about the device ahead of its official launch.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S24 Series seems to have a similar design language to last year’s flagship. The last time the company refreshed its lineup was with the Galaxy S21 series, launched in 2021. These leaks suggest minor camera upgrades, display improvements, and battery enhancements, while the device’s design remains the same as its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Series CAD-Based Render

The leaked CAD-based render of the vanilla Galaxy S24 Series has appeared online. At first glance, the device seems similar to this year’s Galaxy S23 Series. These renders were shared by well-known leaker @OneLeak, along with publishers. The device’s frame aligns more with the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5. The codenames for the Galaxy S24 Series are Muse 1, Muse 2, and Muse 3.

One of the most common upgrades that the Galaxy S24 will see is the addition of an ultra-wideband antenna on the right side of the device. In the render, we have clear visuals of a cutout for 5G and a UWB antenna under the power button.

Previously, there were rumours that Samsung might add support for 65W fast charging. However, China’s 3C agency has confirmed that the Galaxy S24 will have the same charging speed as last year. Nevertheless, there could be significant changes to the battery technology, as Samsung will opt for stacked battery technology for the Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra. This is said to have 10% more improvements in density, which will improve the pack to fit the same capacity with a smaller cell, freeing up space for other components or enabling more compact smartphone manufacturing.

Under the hood, the device is rumoured to announce the Exynos variant alongside Qualcomm, but the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will have dual variants next year. However, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will likely remain exclusively Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3. When we check early leaks of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 benchmark, it reveals a total of 15% higher performance while having 25% higher efficiency at equal performance.

Qualcomm is yet to announce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 later this month; we will know the exact details for next year. I am talking about the rumours of Samsung bringing the Exynos for the Galaxy S24 Series to some regions because early CPU benchmarks suggested a 20% performance improvement in multi-core performance, which goes against the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Samsung MX’s in-house chipsets are ready, but after the exclusivity programme that the company has opted for, it does not seem Samsung will be using the Exynos until 2025. We will know more after the Galaxy S24 Series announcements, assuming TM Roh offers a sneak peek at what is to come. Check out these different perspectives on the device.

Galaxy S24 Render

The entry-level model comes with a flat frame similar to the Galaxy S23, but a curved frame indeed feels more comfortable. One of the notable things we see in this is the placement of the LED flash on the rear, which is now placed between the first and second cameras instead of next to the first camera, like in the Galaxy S23.

It comes with a 6.2” LTPO screen with an FHD+ resolution of 2500nits (Peak), and it is packed with a 4000mAh battery bundle with 25W charging support. The S24 will be narrower than the iPhone 15 Pro by 1.7mm, as sources claim that the Galaxy S24 will have different dimensions than the Galaxy’s, which are 147 x 70.5 x 7.6 mm.

The volume and power buttons are placed on the right-side frame; however, there is a cut for the UWB alongside the 5G antenna. According to China’s 3C agency, they confirm that the device will have 25W fast charging support.

The large version of the Galaxy S24 has flat slides similar to the Galaxy S24. The device is said to come with a 6.7” LTPO flat screen with a centrally aligned hole for the selfie shooter. On the rear panel, there is a triple-rear camera module.

The display features a 6.7” QHD+ resolution with 2500 nits (peak). It is packed with a 4900mAh battery with a 45W fast charging speed.

The device’s dimensions are 158.5 x 75.9 x 7.75 mm, making this device marginally taller, narrower, and thicker compared to this generation.

Galaxy S24 Ultra

Similar to this year, the Galaxy S24 Ultra looks identical to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but this time, the front seems relatively flat, most likely a 2.5D display. It is noticeably less curved than the S23 Ultra. The company plans to ditch the curved design, which they introduced with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. This does not seem significant since many companies, even on a budget, have introduced curved displays.

It offers a slightly larger 6.8” QHD+ resolution, featuring 2500 nits of peak brightness. It is packed with a 5000mAh battery bundled with 45W. Furthermore, the display would be an LTPO AMOLED with QHD+ resolution, having a peak brightness of 2,200 nits compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which only has 1750 nits of peak brightness.

Regarding the camera, the device has a flat top and bottom while having slightly curved side frames. The device’s dimensions are 162.3 x 79 x 8.7mm, which makes the device slightly shorter than the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Under the hood, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, which will have a minimum base configuration of 8/128GB and the maximum storage will be increased from 1TB to 2TB.

The S24+ will be narrower than the iPhone 15 Pro Max by 1.7mm. Reportedly, like the iPhone 15 Pro Series, Samsung will also build their Galaxy S23 Ultra with titanium alloy, which helps reduce the device’s weight by 1g.

This makes the device more durable, but it also has a titanium frame, which is said to be armoured aluminium, making the device 1 g lighter than the current generation.

In terms of the camera, there will be an upgraded 200MP ISOCELL HP2SX primary camera sensor, which will have a 1/1.3” size and native 4-in-1 and 16-in-1 pixel binning, as well as Super Quad Phase Detection autofocus. We can also expect the 12MP ultra-wide angle to remain the same and even the selfie shooter to be the same.

According to leaks, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will come with a 103 MP 3x telephoto and a 50 MP 1/2 5.2” sensor 0.7µm, which can offer 5x optical zoom. This sensor will continue to offer a capable zoom range while offering a significant boost in image quality. In addition, Samsung might remove its 10x optical zoom, which the company has been offering for three years since the launch of the Galaxy S21 Series.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is rumoured only to offer a 3x and 5x telephoto sensor. Since the Galaxy S24 will be unveiled over six months away, you can expect more about the Galaxy S24 Series in the coming months.
