We wouldn't expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S24 until early next year, but the Galaxy S24 sounds like it'll improve on these already capable handsets with enhanced performance, better camera hardware, and more.
Samsung Galaxy S24: Release date predictions and prices
In all likelihood, the Galaxy S24 series will arrive in January or February of 2024 at a Galaxy Unpacked event. It may share the stage with other new Samsung gizmos, like how the Galaxy S23 arrived with the Galaxy Book 3 series this year, but the event would still be focused primarily on the new phones.
Pricing is still a mystery but we'd expect Samsung to keep the phones at their current $799, $999, and $1,199 price points. We hope for this in particular for the U.K. and Australian markets, since the Galaxy S23 was slightly more expensive than the Galaxy S22 at £849/£1,049/£1,249 and AU$1,349/AU$1,649/AU$1,949 respectively.
Samsung Galaxy S24: Cameras
We'd expect the remaining 12MP ultrawide/10MP 3x telephoto/12MP selfie sensors from the S23 models to appear on the equivalent S24 models too, and in fact, we've more recently heard that the 12MP selfie camera is indeed sticking around.
Samsung Galaxy S24: Battery life and charging
We've been hearing a few rumors about the Galaxy S24 Ultra and S24 Plus's battery, particularly in terms of a brand-new design. Samsung will reportedly use a stacked battery in both phones, which will offer better energy density without increasing in size. According to one report, Samsung could boost its energy density by up to 10%.
Initial rumors claimed that both the 24 Plus and S24 Ultra would retain the same 4,700 mAh and 5,000 mAh as their Galaxy S23 counterparts. However, a report on the bezels surrounding the new phones' displays also contends that the power pack inside the Galaxy S24 Plus could increase to 4,900 mAh.
The new design may also increase the S24 Ultra's charging speed to 65W, up from 45W.
