Samsung’s upcoming iteration of the flagship Galaxy S Series, which will be launching early next year, has already started generating reports before its launch. The renowned Galaxy S Series is said to offer cutting-edge technology through three distinctive models: the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, but with refinements.

Reportedly, the Galaxy S24 Series is scheduled to launch early next year, with a potential mid-January announcement before going on sale in early February. The design of the device is expected to stay relatively similar, with a flat display and titanium for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The device will also run on One UI 6.1, powered by Android 14, which will feature redesigned emojis and new quick settings, along with optimisations and improvements under the hood.

Satellite to Cellular

Samsung is bringing satellite communication to smartphones with its 2024 Galaxy S24 Series. Satellite communication is still a new technology, and this is said to complement promising connectivity even in dead spots and ensure constant connectivity. Notably, Apple has announced the Emergency SOS satellite feature, allowing users to send SOS messages via a non-terrestrial network (NTN). Furthermore, the device will offer global connectivity using mobile messaging across the globe.

Generative AI

Samsung is also planning to further incorporate generative AI. The feature includes content generation with natural language prompts to generate text and images. It also includes improvements in speech-to-text accuracy and aims to enhance Bixby Assistant to better interact with users, potentially giving it an advantage over competitors like Google’s Pixel Phones.

Early speculation indicates that Samsung will perform AI tasks faster than Google, thanks to the latest Snapdragon processor, which showcases the Qualcomm AI Engine and Exynos Soc. Furthermore, Google consistently scores lower in benchmarks that focus on AI and machine learning features, giving Samsung a significant edge over the competition. Samsung’s flagship smartphones will resemble tools like ChatGPT and Google Bard.

The Satellite Connectivity feature is said to support smartphones, allowing users to send SOS or emergency messages even in areas where mobile signal is not available. This feature can connect to the nearest low-orbit satellite orbiting the Earth to send an SOS or emergency message.

Typically, smartphones do not rely on mobile towers to connect to the network, even in areas where the density of mobile towers is low. The device is said to be running on 8GB of RAM and Android 14.

Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus

Samsung is bringing a substantial upgrade to the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus. The devices are expected to come with an LTPO M13 OLED display panel, allowing for a refresh rate as low as 1 Hz compared to the current generation panel, which can go up to 2500 nits of brightness. Both devices share identical specifications, with some minor differences in display size and battery capacity. The Geekbench scores of the devices with model numbers SM-S926U and SM-S926N, featuring the Exynos 2400, have appeared online. These benchmarks show that the Exynos 2400 has slightly lower performance than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

There is also a narrow-bezel LTPO display for an immersive visual experience, offering a 6.65″ screen size. The device configuration starts with a base variant of 8GB of RAM and is complemented by a substantial 4900mAh battery. The device will be available in different style preferences, including black, grey, violet, and even yellow colour options.

The Galaxy S23 Series comes with different processors in different markets globally. Normally, South Korean and European markets get the Exynos variant, while North America gets Snapdragon-powered devices. The Geekbench listing of the device confirms that it will have 12GB of RAM and will run Android 14 out of the box.

Galaxy S24 Ultra

Reportedly, Samsung is planning to upgrade its device in 2024, which is scheduled to launch in January. As always, the device will bring high-end features and innovations. The Ultra variant will have the best of everything, with an equal focus on visual excellence and advanced features and technology. Additionally, the device is said to come with a titanium frame instead of aluminium and new EV battery technology to offer improved battery life.

Furthermore, the device aims to improve power efficiency and deliver smooth interactions to enhance the user’s experience. It will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen3 for the Galaxy, which promises unparalleled performance and efficiency.

In terms of camera performance, the device will have a 200 MP camera sensor powered by AI. It will also feature an upgraded ISOCELL Zoom Anyplace, which allows users to select and automatically track subjects while filming to ensure they stay in frame and reduce screen shake. Moreover, the E2E AI Remosaic will improve processing by reducing latency and enhancing image quality.

Additionally, the device will be capable of shooting two videos at once, one in full frame and the other with the subject zoomed in at 4K. Users will also be able to use 2x zoom and 4K zoom in any direction to capture such clips, thanks to Tetra-Pixel technology on the SoC.

The device will also come with AI features and an improved 4K Zoom, thanks to the 200MP ISOCELL HP2 primary camera bundled with AI-based tracking technology for fast-moving subjects in real-time while shooting video.

Furthermore, the device itself will have a titanium centre frame, promising rugged durability while combining style with sturdiness. Under the hood, the device will be bundled with a 5000mAh battery.
