That OnLeaks fellow is back at it again, dropping images of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus smartphones at not one but two different venues. Images of the S24 Ultra are also out and about but they show a smartphone that looks mostly similar to this year’s effort.
Based on the image leaks, the smaller handsets are in for a bit of a redesign. Rather than the colour-matched and rounded edges we’ve become used to, the images of the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus show a new, flat titanium edge that’ll immediately bring to mind Apple’s iPhone design over the last few years.
Galaxy S24 goes flat out
The images have been pulled from CAD files, which means that the physical design should be as accurate as it gets. There’s no point in keeping the shape a secret when you want companies to make accessories that’ll be ready on launch day, after all. An ultra-wide band antenna is heading to the Galaxy S24, bringing it up to parity with the Plus and Ultra. The camera array for both phones will relocate the flash, making the triple camera setup a little less obnoxious. The S24 will feature a 6.17in display and the S24 Plus is set to have a 6.7in screen. But this isn’t all that is suspected (or known) about Samsung’s upcoming handsets.
A processor upgrade is obviously in the offing. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, probably tweaked just for Samsung if this year is any example, should handle the workload but there’s also talk of Samsung’s own Exynos lineup making a return with the Exynos 2400. However, there’s also talk of the Exynos 2400 not being quite up to snuff, a similar situation to the one that led to the company’s flagships adopting Snapdragon hardware across the board. If Exynos does make a comeback, you can expect it to appear in South Africa’s Galaxy S24 complement.
Other reported Galaxy S24 specs aren’t out of keeping with how Samsung does things. The stock Galaxy S24 is expected to have an IP68 rating, a 50MP main camera and 12MP/10MP secondaries, up to 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. We could have guessed all of that, however, so perhaps treat this information as such for now. The Ultra will apparently sport a brighter 6.8in display and up to 2TB of storage. That seems excessive but since South Africa probably won’t get that version, it’s unlikely that you’ll have to worry about which kidney to sell to afford a 2TB smartphone.
