Typically, Samsung reveals its Galaxy S smartphones at the beginning of each year, but it has often hosted launch events for this lineup towards the end of February. However, it’s worth noting that the Galaxy S24’s predecessor, the Galaxy S23, also broke from the usual schedule by launching on February 1, 2023.

Rumours surrounding the new standard and Plus models of Samsung’s Galaxy S24 lineup suggest upgraded LTPO displays, similar to those found in the company’s Ultra smartphones. Additionally, these models are expected to feature larger batteries and some camera enhancements. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, in particular, may come equipped with a 50MP telephoto sensor, a substantial improvement over the 10MP telephoto sensor featured in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

One significant change on the horizon for the Galaxy S24 smartphones could involve their processors. Samsung might decide to replace Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips with its own Exynos-branded SoCs. In January 2023, South Korean leaker Vampire King reported that Samsung MX, the company’s mobile business, had already approved the design of the Exynos 2400 and confirmed mass production starting in November 2023.

They said the company plans to use it in the Galaxy S24, and it will supposedly feature the same quad-cluster design as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, with either eight or ten cores.
