Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 Series, including the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, has leaked a lot of features. Key specifications of the device have surfaced, including the design and other major changes. The CAD render of the device has revealed the design, which shows a triple-camera module and slightly larger bezels.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Series Release Date

According to recent reports, Samsung is rumoured to unveil the Galaxy S24 Series in January. The recent computer-aided design (CAD) renders of the Galaxy S24 series, including the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, bear a similar resemblance to their predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Series. For the next year, Samsung is expected to maintain the current pricing, which means the device is likely to start at $800.

Titanium Frame on the Galaxy S24 Series

Recently, the iPhone 15 Pro Series introduced a titanium frame, replacing the stainless steel used in its predecessors. According to reports, Samsung will also be using the Titanium Frame across the Galaxy S24 Series, showing that it does not discriminate among its high-end devices, at least not in this regard.

However, some well-known leakers have also said that the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus will have aluminium frames, meaning that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will exclusively have a titanium frame. Furthermore, the titanium frame offers better durability and is a strong and lightweight metal often used in high-end products like aerospace components and medical implants.

There are several advantages to having a titanium frame, as it makes the device lighter than its predecessor. Some rumours also suggest that Samsung has found a way to make the Galaxy S24 lighter, but it may increase the overall weight of the phone and potentially increase the price.

On the other hand, some reports also indicate that the company itself will build the titanium frame for the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus, either from two of its third-party vendors in Vietnam or from the South Korean tech conglomerate.

Since titanium is stronger than aluminium, it is less likely to bend or break if your device is dropped. It would also ideally be more resistant to scratches and dents. Some reports also suggest that titanium will make the device slightly heavier and increase the device’s price since titanium is more expensive than aluminium.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra exclusively uses Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Under the hood, the device is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, regardless of region. The top-end model of Samsung’s high-end lineup continues to use the Snapdragon, while the base models may get the Exynos and Snapdragon. The company will be offering both 3nm and 4nm for its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which will use TSMC’s latest node.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be the first processor in the Android segment to produce a 3nm architecture for Android. Furthermore, the iPhone 15 Pro is the only 3nm SoC processor available in the consumer market. The latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is scheduled to be announced at the Snapdragon Summit event on October 24.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will have an Exynos or Snapdragon

Samsung is not completely skipping the Exynos for the second time. The company is offering the Exynos 2400 model for the standard Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. There will be two different configurations for the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+, either the Exynos 2400 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, depending on the region. Reportedly, North America will be powered by Snapdragon.

Samsung’s Exynos 2400 is based on the new 4nm LPP+ process, while Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 uses TSMC’s latest node, which is now twice as fast in CPU performance and also has 15x AI performance. The upcoming Samsung flagship is expected to feature a 50MP sensor with a 5x zoom periscope lens and will use a 10MP sensor for the zoom lens on the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

There are a lot of reasons why Samsung still wants to use the Exynos processor on their devices. Last year, they skipped it because the last Exynos variant had multiple thermal issues compared to its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 counterpart. Even after the massive success of the Snapdragon model, manufacturing processors is a very complex engineering process, and it makes sense for mobile brands to outsource SoCs from Qualcomm rather than try them on their own.

If Samsung is successfully able to offer the same performance as Exynos, it will help Samsung lower the cost of production of the devices and also narrow the gap between hardware and software capabilities. Apple has been dominating the Android market for several years, and Samsung wants to maintain healthy competition in the processor market. Samsung has foundries for silicon fabrication with the resources to develop Exynos processors, which helps the company lower the cost of production with better profit margins.

By not outsourcing technology to third parties, it helps the company negotiate better and remains a threat to Qualcomm, which in turn helps Samsung secure better deals for the Snapdragon chipset in its flagships.

These are leaks, so take them with a pinch of salt as they are unconfirmed for now. Samsung may be most likely to have the titanium build on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Samsung is expected to continue its Exynos development in the future, and it is unlikely that Samsung would give up its Exynos division in favour of permanently using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset on its flagship.
