Samsung's Galaxy S24 Ultra is shaping up as a major upgrade to the Galaxy S23 Ultra (review) in terms of its hardware. It was first reported to feature a tough titanium chassis alongside a flat display. Now, new information suggests the unannounced flagship will even sport a super bright display that could shatter existing records.
Details about Samsung enlisting an improved panel hailed from two sources. First, a South Korean leaker named @hyacokr_itnyang posted that the Galaxy S24's display brightness will peak at 2,200 nits. However, prolific tipster Ice Universe even added that the peak brightness would be higher than 2,200 nits.
For reference, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra's display boasts 1,750 nits at maximum, which is unchanged compared to its predecessor. The difference in the maximum brightness level of the current premium device to the upcoming Galaxy S24 Ultra would be more than 450 nits or around 26 percent higher.
However, it should be noted that the difference in the nits value is not relative to how much brighter the new display would be. In other words, having a difference of 450 nits would not make the Galaxy S24 Ultra's display 26 percent brighter. Regardless, the change could be notable in outdoor use under the bright sun. At the same time, it would also place the value higher than the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max our colleague reviewed which clocked in at 2,000 nits.
In addition, Ice Universe alleged that Samsung is going to utilize a flat panel on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The account added that the change in the panel type would result in the bezels of the device becoming thicker and even described it to be on par with the Galaxy A54 (review). However, one should take this bit of information with a punch of salt since it is always possible there could be changes along the way.
