November 2, 2023

With the Galaxy S23 Ultra having been out for three months and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 having been officially announced, it seems only fitting to look ahead to Samsung’s next big release. That is, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, which Samsung intends to use as its primary tool in the battle against the titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

The next Samsung flagship isn’t expected to be shown until February 2024, but there have already been some interesting leaks and rumours. There is little doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will mark a significant advancement for the Galaxy S series in the future.

The latest wave of rumours all seem to point towards the possibility of an announcement for the Galaxy S24 Ultra—as well as the Galaxy S24/S24 Plus—a little sooner than expected. The majority of leakers and industry insiders have their eyes fixed on mid-January as the probable time for Samsung to reveal its future flagship.

Although we had originally expected to hear about it in early February, a mid-January release wouldn’t be all that surprising. It fits neatly into the newly created window of January–February for announcement and release, which has been enjoyed by the majority of recent Galaxies. Specifically, on January 14, 2021, the Galaxy S21 Ultra was revealed, and on January 29, 2021, it was made available worldwide. 

Samsung would have an advantage over Apple’s iPhone 15 series—specifically, the mid-September 2023-announced iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max—if they had made their announcement and released sooner. With an abundance of new capabilities, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is a formidable competitor, both literally and symbolically, meaning that Samsung now has the whole upper hand.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra summary of expectations

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra summary of expectations

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will be the biggest and most feature-rich model in Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 series. We anticipate that the phone will carry over the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s impressive 10X periscope camera, integrated S Pen stylus, and a spacious 6.8-inch display.

According to early rumours, Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra won’t alter the winning recipe. Therefore, we anticipate mostly incremental and evolutionary enhancements, such as a new chipset that is faster, a bigger battery that may charge more quickly, and a display that is considerably brighter and (maybe) smoother.

It is likely that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be shown in February 2024 and go on sale soon after. We’re still hoping Samsung will come up with even more inventive ways to make the Galaxy S24 Ultra a fun phone.

How many models are in the Galaxy S24 series?

How many models are in the Galaxy S24 series?

Each Galaxy S family has had three variants since the Galaxy S20 series: the base model, the Plus variant, and the formidable Ultra model. In 2024, we anticipate Samsung will stick to adopting this formula. It is quite likely that Samsung will release the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra.

There is speculation, nevertheless, that Samsung may decide not to release the Galaxy S24 Plus. Other, more well-known leakers have disproved this rumour, which started with a relatively unknown leaker. Considering that the Plus model is typically the least popular in the series, it doesn’t seem all that crazy. For the time being, though, we believe Samsung will continue to release three Galaxy S24 devices according to its tried-and-true protocol.

A few outlets are reporting that Samsung could bring Exynos power back to the Galaxy S24 series in some capacity.

According to the most recent rumour, Samsung may now mostly return to the way things were. Samsung may release the Galaxy S24 series with Exynos CPUs everywhere, save the US, according to the Korean publication The Elec. The Ultra variant would be the lone exception, with Snapdragon being used elsewhere.

To clarify, every Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Plus purchased in the United States will come equipped with a Snapdragon processor. You can purchase an Exynos processor-equipped Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Plus outside of the United States. You can purchase a Galaxy S24 Ultra with a Snapdragon CPU from any nation.

Samsung formally launched the Exynos 2400 chipset on October 6, 2023. Without a doubt, at least some Galaxy S24 phones will come with this chipset.

What could the price be for the Samsung Galaxy S24 series?

  • Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra: $799, $999, and $1,199
  • Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, S22 Ultra: $799, $999, $1,199
  • Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, S23 Ultra: $799, $999, $1,199
  • Galaxy S24,S24 Plus,S24 Ultra: $899,$999,1199

Samsung hasn’t changed its Galaxy S price approach in the US for three years running, as the aforementioned list makes clear. For the rest of the globe, though, this is untrue. In reality, the Galaxy S23 series saw price increases this year in a number of notable locations, including the UK and the majority of Europe.

As a result, we can only presume that price increases in the US are imminent. It’s unclear how much of a bump there would be and if the Ultra variant would be the only one to increase or all three models together.

Naturally, it’s possible that Samsung will continue to employ the same prices as it has for the previous three cycles, which would surprise us greatly. As 2023 progresses, we’ll have a better understanding of this and whether the Galaxy S23 is a superior option.

Conclusion

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is set to be Samsung’s main weapon against the titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max. Rumours suggest an earlier announcement for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, possibly in mid-January 2024, fitting into the January-February announcement and release window that most recent Galaxies have enjoyed. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will inherit the large 6.8-inch display of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, as well as its 10X periscope camera and built-in S Pen stylus.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will likely be announced in February 2024 and go on sale shortly after. There will be three models in the Galaxy S series: a standard model, a Plus variant, and the mighty Ultra model. However, there has been a rumour that Samsung could skip the Galaxy S24 Plus, but this is not far-fetched.

A few outlets are reporting that Samsung could bring Exynos power back to the Galaxy S24 series in some capacity. According to The Elec, Samsung could launch the Galaxy S24 series with Exynos processors in all areas except for the US, with the exception of the Ultra model, which would be all Snapdragon everywhere.

The price for the Samsung Galaxy S24 series could be between $799, $999, and $1,199. As Samsung hasn’t altered its Galaxy S pricing strategy in the United States for three straight years, it’s possible that price jumps are on the cards for the United States soon.
