Galaxy S24: release date, price, technical sheet, everything you need to know about Samsung smartphones

Samsung will launch a new series of high-end smartphones in 2024, the Galaxy S24. Design, screens, features, camera, performance, autonomy, One UI: here is everything you need to know about these three smartphones which promise to become benchmarks on Android.

Like every year, Samsung is preparing to unveil new high-end smartphones. This file will allow you to know everything about the Galaxy S24, and it will obviously be updated with the latest information available. The 2024 batch will still be made up of 3 models:

  • The Galaxy S24
  • The Galaxy S24+
  • The Galaxy S24 Ultra


In recent years, Samsung has launched a new Galaxy S series in the first or second month of the year. The previous Galaxy S22 and S23 both arrived in February, and it could well be that the new Galaxy S24 models will have a bit of a head start in 2024.

If a message from famous leaker Ice Universe on Chinese social network Weibo is to be believed, the Galaxy S24 could be launched on January 18 next year. This rumor was corroborated by a report which claims that Samsung's manufacturing partners plan to begin mass production a month earlier than usual.

We also know that other manufacturers such as Xiaomi will also bring forward the launch of their own smartphones. In question, the annual Qualcomm conference which is scheduled a little earlier than in previous years, from the end of October. It will be an opportunity to discover the new high-end chip that will power high-end Android smartphones of this generation.


For now, the prices of the next Galaxy S24 are a mystery, and it is probably too early for Samsung to have already finalized the price list for its next smartphones. The Korean giant had significantly increased the prices of previous generation smartphones, so we don't really expect a further increase this year.

As a reminder, here are the prices for all the 2023 Galaxy S23s:

  • Galaxy S23 (8 GB RAM/128 GB storage): €959
  • Galaxy S23 (8 GB RAM/256 GB storage): €1,019
  • Galaxy S23+ (8 GB RAM/256 GB storage): €1,219
  • Galaxy S23+ (8 GB RAM/512 GB storage): €1,339
  • Galaxy S23 Ultra (8 GB RAM/256 GB storage): €1,419
  • Galaxy S23 Ultra (12 GB RAM/512 GB storage): €1,599
  • Galaxy S23 Ultra (12 GB RAM/1 TB storage): €1,839

Apple having even reduced the prices of its latest iPhone 15, it is difficult to see Samsung increasing its prices, as this could greatly reduce the attractiveness of its smartphones. We therefore hope that Samsung will at least maintain its prices, because this would position the Galaxy S24 Ultra just below the iPhone 15 Pro Max (€1,469) and the Galaxy S24 a few euros less than the iPhone 15 (€969). ).


For years now, Samsung has been trying to standardize the design of its smartphones. Whether it's a high-end smartphone or a more affordable model, it has become easy to recognize a Samsung device at first glance. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S24s will therefore inherit the iconic designs of previous generations.

We will still find cameras placed vertically on the back of all models, and a more angular design reminiscent of the old Galaxy Note on the Ultra model. The latter will always be accompanied by a stylus, stored in a location at the bottom left of the smartphone. However, we can still expect some design changes on all devices.

As usual, French leaker OnLeaks has already revealed 3D renderings of the three phones in advance. As you can see in the images, the Galaxy S24 and S24+, the smallest models, will this time use flat borders inspired by the iPhone.

This will notably allow Samsung to reduce the width of the devices. You will need to count on dimensions of 147 × 70.6 × 7.6 mm for the Galaxy S24, and 158.5 × 75.9 × 7.7 mm. The devices will therefore also be slightly longer, and their thickness will be almost identical. The flat edges will be an opportunity for Samsung to place an Ultra WideBand antenna on the side, below the power button. They will therefore be perfectly compatible with Samsung's latest trackers, the Galaxy SmartTag 2.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will also flatten, but this will not be good news for all users. The smartphone will opt this year for a 2.5D flat screen, and thus abandons the emblematic curved screen which made the series famous. The Galaxy S24 Ultra thus becomes not only longer, but also wider, because Samsung has decided to standardize the size of the borders all around the screen. We must count on dimensions of 162.3 x 79 x 8.6 mm, compared to 163.3 x 78 x 8.9 mm previously. The smartphone will therefore become more complicated to handle, but we can be reassured by telling ourselves that it will lose a little thickness.

As for the materials used, it seems that all Galaxy S24s use a new frame partly forged with titanium. Unfortunately, unlike the iPhone 15, this won't really allow the smartphones to lose weight, probably due to the type of alloy used. The Galaxy S24s will weigh 168 grams, 195 grams and 233 grams, respectively.

Finally, note that the smartphones will always be IP68 certified for water and dust resistance. The strength of the devices should not be much different, they will most likely still be protected by Gorilla Glass Victus 2, the company's strongest to date. Concerning the colors of the Galaxy S24, Ross Young, generally well informed, gave 4 on X (Twitter). The 3 models from Samsung should be available in:

  • Black
  • Gray
  • Purple

Just like the S23 Ultra, we expect the Galaxy S24 Ultra to feature exclusive colors. The first rumors indicate black, gray, purple and yellow shades. Customers of Samsung's online store could even receive a special treatment, with a wider color palette, with three additional dresses: orange, light blue and light green.


Once the official technical data sheets of the smartphones are known, you will find here a summary of all the specifications to remember.


The Galaxy S24s will still benefit from different screen sizes, but Samsung will make some changes in this area. First of all, as we saw above, all will be equipped with flat screens, and not curved. The classic Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will this time be entitled to slightly larger screens with a diagonal of 6.2 inches (FHD+) and 6.7 inches (QHD+), respectively compared to 6.8 inches (QHD+) for the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Above all, Samsung will equip its Galaxy S24s with much better screens than the Galaxy S23s. These will be new generation M13 OLED panels, which as always promise ever more faithful colors, reduced energy consumption and increased brightness. The latter will reach no less than 2500 nits peak on all models, when you had to be content with “only” 1750 nits before.

Another good news is that all Galaxy S24s will finally benefit from LTPO technology, until now reserved for the Ultra model. This allows you to dynamically vary the refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz depending on the content displayed, in order to save energy.

In terms of biometric authentication, Samsung still relies on the same ultrasonic fingerprint reader under the screen, but users can also opt for facial recognition if they wish.


Historically, Samsung has always launched its most recent Galaxy smartphones in Europe with its own in-house Exynos chips, with the exception of the Galaxy S23, which all arrived with SoCs from Qualcomm. The Galaxy S24s should go back to basics, since this time we expect Exynos chips in Europe, at least for certain models. If we are to believe certain leaks, only the S24 and S24+ models would be equipped with it, the Ultra version retaining a Snapdragon SoC.

So this is not really good news for the performance of the two smaller models. Exynos chips have a fairly bad reputation, in particular because of their poor performance compared to their Qualcomm equivalents, but also because of higher consumption and temperatures.

If we are to believe a first benchmark, the GPU of the Exynos 2400 would only obtain 1656 points on a Vulkan 1.3 test, when the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 of the Galaxy S23 managed to reach 1746 points. The graphics part could therefore be less interesting, but the chip could catch up on the CPU part thanks to a new configuration with 10 cores, compared to 8 previously. There is a main core at 3.21 GHz, two cores at 2.90 GHz, three cores at 2.59 GHz and 4 cores at 1.96 GHz.

However, it is doubtful that this will be enough to compete with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. A Geekbench benchmark revealed that it will be composed of 8 cores with higher frequencies (a Cortex-X4 core at 3.40 GHz, 3 Cortex-A720 cores at 3.15 GHz, 2 Cortex-A720 cores at 2, 96 GHz as well as 2 Cortex-A530 cores at 2.27 GHz). It is expected that this will be the “For Galaxy” version customized with higher frequencies, which would further widen the gap between all models in terms of performance. The chip would manage to achieve more than 2300 points on one core on Geekbench, and more than 7300 points on all cores.

The Adreno 750 GPU would reach 17,134 points on Vulkan (Geekbench 6.2.0), or no less than 70% more than the previous generation. It would also benefit from an increase in its frequency, which would go from 770 MHz to 1 GHz on the “For Galaxy” version. The Galaxy S24 would therefore be truly designed for gaming, and a report also announces that Samsung has collaborated with AMD to bring FSR technology to its smartphones, which potentially opens the way to the arrival of games originally intended for PCs and consoles.


The battery capacity of the Galaxy S24 will increase again in 2024, but not for all models. The small Galaxy S24 will see its battery increase to 4000 mAh (+100 mAh), while the Galaxy S24+ will this time house a 4900 mAh battery (+200 mAh). For its part, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will still rely on the same 5000 mAh battery.

In terms of charging, you shouldn't expect many changes. The Galaxy S24 would still be limited to just 25W, while the Galaxy S24+ and S24 Ultra will be allowed 45W. This is little when we compare this with Chinese smartphones, which every year try to surpass the previous record in the field. Wireless charging will be limited to 15W. Some rumors report the arrival of 65W wired fast charging on the Ultra model, but the smartphone has probably not been certified with such power by different organizations.

With the small increase in battery capacities and reduced consumption for the screen and processor, we expect the Galaxy S24 to offer slightly improved battery life compared to the previous generation, but these gains should be more moderate on the Ultra model, which benefits from the fewest changes.


The photo part of the Galaxy S24 and S24+ will not be radically different from what we find on the Galaxy S23. The two smartphones will still benefit from the same sensors. We expect to find a 50 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor as well as a 12 MP telephoto lens offering 3X optical zoom.

This year, it is the Galaxy S24 Ultra which will see its photo part bring the most new features. The main sensor will still be the same 200 MP ISOCELL HP2, but it will be slightly better than the previous generation thanks to a few tweaks.

It will be supported by a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 10 MP telephoto sensor offering 3X optical zoom, which will probably be identical to those of the S23 Ultra. Finally, the lot will be completed by a fourth periscope sensor, which will also be modified. Rather than opting for a 10X optical zoom, as was the case since the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung will instead focus on a simple 5X optical zoom. The larger sensor will measure 1/2.52 inches, and will offer 50 MP, compared to 10 MP for the previous generation. We should therefore be entitled to shots from afar with more details.

Leaker Revegnus has revealed the full specifications of the Galaxy S24 Ultra's rear camera. Samsung seems to have taken a small step backwards by using a sensor for the 5X telephoto lens of which a more recent version exists. Here is what we expect:

  • Wide-angle 200 Megapixels, 0.6 µm HP2SX.
  • Ultra wide angle 12 megapixels, 1.4 µm IMS564.
  • 3X 10 Megapixel telephoto lens, 1.12 µm IMX754+
  • 5X 50 Megapixel 0.7 µm IMX854 Telephoto Lens
  • Autofocus laser.


The Galaxy S24 will launch with One UI 6.0, the new version of the manufacturer's overlay based on Android 14. As always, this new version promises to improve the user experience with new features and fix the problems of the previous version . Here are all the most interesting new features:


The most notable change in One UI 6 is the new layout of Quick Settings. It now looks like stock Android, with larger, easily accessible options. However, one-handed operation can be a bit difficult due to full screen usage.


Unlike One UI 5, where the options for placing the clock widget on the lock screen were limited, One UI 6 allows you to reposition it freely. This feature is handy for making sure the clock doesn't obstruct essential parts of your wallpaper.


The notification panel and lock screen now feature a revamped media player, similar in design to Android 13, but with improvements including showing song art and a bar of animated progression.


Battery settings have been separated from Device Care in One UI 6, allowing you to access battery information directly from the Settings menu.


One UI 6's Gallery app offers new editing options, including Object Eraser, Remaster, and Portrait Effect. It also introduces the ability to use both hands for drag and drop functionality. Additionally, image editing is made easier with a new layout of editing tools, and options appear side by side instead of stacked. One UI 6 also includes a dedicated editing feature called Samsung Studio, which brings more powerful editing capabilities right to your phone. You can access it from the Drawer menu in the Gallery app or add it as a shortcut on the Home screen.


Taking advantage of the power of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Samsung is integrating generative artificial intelligence into the interface of the Galaxy S24. This one is called Gauss, in homage to the famous German mathematician. And it is capable of producing text, code and images as well. In the latter case, Gauss can either create an image from scratch or make modifications to an existing photo. Some of the new photo gallery editing tools (seen previously) obviously rely on Gauss.

Other notable changes include a new font, the ability to drag application icons with one hand while using the other to move from one page of the screen to another. home, the removal of the terms “Galaxy” or “Samsung” for preinstalled applications or even new emojis.
