Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S24 series earlier than it did with the Galaxy S23. To date, the South Koreans have not done their best in keeping the upcoming flagship under wraps. Following the computer-generated pictures, hands-on dummy units of the trio have surfaced to confirm several minor changes to the devices' exterior.

Early renders depicted the Galaxy S24 range's design to remain pretty much the same as its predecessors, with the most significant iteration appearing in the sides. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, however, is tipped to be boxier than the Galaxy S23 Ultra (review). These changes have somewhat been revealed in a new set of photos via X (formerly known as Twitter).

Samsung Galaxy S24's real-life design

User Sonny Dickson posted alleged photos of the Galaxy S24 (Plus) and Galaxy S24 Ultra dumy units. A glance makes one conclude how the standard models look identical to the Galaxy S23 (review) based on the rear panels and corners, with the only exception being the chassis, which is flatter and resembles the iPhone 14 Pro.

The most noticeable change would be the Galaxy S24 Ultra that appears to have a more level back panel compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra with beveled left and right edges. In addition, the corners are somewhat sharper, resulting in a more rectangular form. The position of the buttons, S Pen silo, and cameras remain unchanged. However, it's unclear if there are differences in the size of the floating camera lenses.

The dummies were all shown in white with a silver accent, so there's no way of telling how the other colorways will look like in real-life. According to recent rumors, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Ultra will be offered in white, black, purple, and gold options. Word has it special colors like orange, light green, and light blue similar to the Galaxy S23 FE (review) will also be made available.

Samsung Galaxy S24 (Ultra) specifications

Concerning the other changes, these are most likely concentrated in the internals that are said to include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy chipset coupled with generative AI capabilities, updated cameras for the Ultra, and larger batteries for the standard models. The displays in the trio are also touted to be brighter with the Galaxy S24 getting an LTPO panel for wider refresh rate levels similar to the Ultra.

Some speculations point to the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus being powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 2400 chipset in selected regions outside of the USA. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is believed to get a Snapdragon SoC for all markets.

Leaker Ice Universe forecasted the next Unpacked event will take place in San Francisco on January 17th, 2024, which would be the 18th on the other side of the hemisphere. The first smart ring tracker from Samsung, dubbed the Galaxy Ring, might also be announced then.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
