Samsung faces a challenging task if it hopes to maintain the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s position as the greatest smartphone available, particularly in light of the highly excellent performances of the iPhone 15 Pro series and the Google Pixel 8 Pro.

Fortunately, based on what we currently know about Samsung’s flagship model, the Galaxy S24 Ultra appears to be yet another excellent choice. Furthermore, in a typical Samsung manner, it might arrive sooner rather than later, full of gusto and prepared to show off its amazing specs to the competitors.

Let’s explore the most recent information and discover what the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to be revealed by recent leaks and rumors.

Many of us are curious about it after hearing endless stories about other recently introduced flagship products’ pricing fluctuations.

Yogesh Brar, another trustworthy Twitter tipper, was the source of one such rumor. In August 2023, Brar predicted price increases of between $50 and $200 for all major flagship devices, specifically mentioning the Galaxy S24-Series. 

But did Brar’s information hold up over time? Indeed and no. Of the devices that have been introduced thus far, only the Pixel 8 Pro ($100) has seen a hike in price; the iPhone 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, has maintained its pricing while discontinuing the less expensive 128GB option.

Although we are unsure of Samsung’s exact plans, we may anticipate that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will retail for between $1,199 and $1,399 at launch.

We now know what to anticipate in terms of specifications for the 2024 release of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra thanks to a variety of trustworthy hints. The main one is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, a potent new octa-core processor that has demonstrated some really encouraging scores in Geekbench results that have been leaked. 

Geekbench results  Single-Core score  Multi-core score  
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Galaxy S24 Ultra Prototype SM-S926B2,067  6,520  
iPhone 15 Pro Max (A17 Pro)  2,890  7,194  
Pixel 8 Pro (Tensor G3)  1,760  4,442  
Galaxy S23 Ultra (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2)  1,881  4,985  

Even while these results are remarkable, it should be noted that they are based on a pre-production prototype and may not accurately reflect the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s actual performance.

Nevertheless, if they are true, we might be looking at not just Samsung’s most potent product to date but also the closest theoretical rival to Apple’s fantastic A17 Pro chipset.

Regarding the graphical performance of the phone, some unusual data have been observed in a recent study that showcases Vulkan GPU benchmark results.

The benchmark demonstrates a significant 81% increase in GPU performance over the Galaxy S23 Ultra and appears to have been run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor within a prototype Galaxy S24 Plus, suggesting that Qualcomm’s potent chip may be present in some variants of the base S24 models.

Vulkan GPU Benchmark  Score  
Prototype Galaxy S24 Plus SM-S926U (Snapdragon 8 Gen 3)17,031  
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2)  9,379  

Does this imply that the Galaxy S24 Ultra with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be a powerful gaming device? It’s difficult to say. Since these are still test unit statistics, they do not provide a complete picture of performance in actual use. To be honest, though, it’s quite hopeful.

What is the most efficient way to use all of this computing power? SamMobile claims that the S24 series will have a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, such as generative AI tools like text-to-image capabilities and maybe ChatGPT-type enhancements to Samsung’s digital assistant Bixby.

Moving on, we also have a rough notion of what to anticipate in terms of RAM and storage for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, courtesy of Twitter tipster Revengus once again.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S24 ULTRA: DESIGN AND DISPLAY (RUMOURED)

SAMSUNG GALAXY S24 ULTRA: DESIGN AND DISPLAY (RUMOURED)

According to what we now know, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will initially resemble its predecessor, but there will be some obvious differences in terms of design and display.

A fresh palette of colors is the most fundamental, according to Display Supply Chain Consultants’ Ross Young. According to his sources, the typical color scheme will consist of violet, yellow, black, and titanium gray. Light blue, light green, and orange should be S24 online exclusives.

According to a tweet or post from Ice Universe, the Galaxy S24 Ultra would retain its overall design but forgo its curved display in favor of a flat screen. Based on leaked measurements, some have concluded that this indicates chunkier bezels; however, this could be explained by the residual curvature of the new titanium chassis.

The upgraded 6.8-inch WQHD+ (3200 x 1440 pixels, 463 ppi) display on the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to employ an AMOLED, M13 LTPO panel, which is also rumored to be used in the iPhone 16. The next-generation display on the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to have a dynamic refresh rate of 1Hz–144Hz and be more power-efficient.

The astounding report that the Galaxy S24 Ultra would have a record-breaking peak brightness of 2,500 nits—a 750-nit improvement over the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s already extremely bright panel—caps off things on the display front.

Yogesh Brar and Ice Universe both claim that Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra will keep the massive 200MP main camera, 12MP selfie camera, 10MP periscope lens (which is now only capable of 5x optical zoom), and 12MP ultrawide shooters from the 23 Ultra while introducing a revolutionary 50MP telephoto (3x optical zoom) lens to its formidable collection. 

For the S23 Ultra, Samsung’s 10x optical zoom was a major deal, so reports that it was discontinued had many people perplexed. But with a wider aperture and larger sensor, the upgraded 50MP telephoto camera might be able to match the periscope’s 10x optical magnification with comparable results, all without significantly compromising image quality. 

Conclusion

Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to be a high-quality offering, with impressive specifications and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. Rumors suggest that the price of the Galaxy S24 Ultra could start between $1,199 and $1,399. The device will feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED M13 LTPO display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 (463) and a refresh rate of 1Hz–144Hz. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will also have a record-breaking peak brightness of 2,500 nits, a 750-nit increase over the previous Galaxy S23 Ultra’s bright panel.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will retain the 23 Ultra’s 200MP main camera, 12MP selfie cam, 10MP periscope lens, and 12MP ultrawide shooters while adding a game-changing 50MP telephoto (3x optical zoom) lens. The periscope’s 10x optical zoom may be matched by the upgraded 50MP telephoto shooter with no loss in image quality.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which has shown promising scores in leaked Geekbench results. However, these numbers are still from a pre-production prototype and could be falsely indicative of the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s final performance.

As for the phone’s graphical performance, a Vulkan GPU benchmark report suggests a dramatic increase in GPU performance of over 81% when compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The S24 lineup is set to adopt AI features, including generative AI tools like text-to-image capabilities and potentially ChatGPT-like improvements to Samsung’s digital assistant Bixby.
