Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S24: Samsung’s next flagship smartphone — the Galaxy S24 Ultra is reported to get a titanium frame, just like the iPhone 15 Pro series. According to a report by The Elec, South Korean tech is in favour of using titanium instead of aluminum and is said to be in talks with several Chinese vendors such as Solomo, which will process the titanium frame for Samsung.
The company is also said to be looking at users’ opinions on the use of new material to incorporate the same on other models, possibly with the Galaxy S25 series. Samsung has currently shipped over 15 million S23 Ultra units across and is said to produce a similar amount of Galaxy S24 Ultra units. Several reports point towards the fact that the, Galaxy S24 series could launch as early as January 2024.
The transition from aluminum to titanium definitely comes at a cost, as titanium is a harder and more expensive material. This means, the price of the Galaxy S24 Ultra might go up a bit. However, unlike the weight reduction that Apple achieved on the iPhone 15 Pro by switching from stainless steel to titanium, Samsung might not be able to do so, as aluminum is lighter than titanium.
As per the specifications are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC in most of the markets, while some might get the Exynos variant. Samsung is also said to have opted for a 2K flat panel display, unlike the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which features a curved panel.
The camera is likely to remain similar with a 200 MP primary shooter, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 10 MP periscope zoom lens. The 3x telephoto lens is said to be upgraded to a 50 MP sensor. The smartphone continues to feature a 5,000 mAh battery with support for up to 45W fast charging and support for wireless charging. The device is expected to have features like IP68 rating and S-Pen, which we come to expect on Samsung’s Ultra flagships.
