User On leaks (née Steve Hemmerstoffer) and website Smart Breaks We’ve released renders of the new Galaxy S24 series as well as a video, so we have a good idea of what we can expect to see at Samsung’s next big Galaxy Unpacked event.
In the images we see a device with strong similarities to the Galaxy S23 but without the curves at the edges. It also has a similar aesthetic philosophy at the back in terms of camera arrangement and at the front, in the center of the top of the completely flat screen there is a hole-punch for the selfie camera.
In the frame, the position of the UWB antennas can be clearly distinguished, which is a very important upgrade for the basic models of the series, since there was not yet UWB communication (ultra-wideband technology, often used to locate objects of which the Apple AirTag is a typical example of the use of this technology). According to the leaks, the Galaxy S24 will have dimensions of 147 x 70.5 x 7.6 mm.
At first glance, the new Galaxy S24 Ultra looks identical to the S23 Ultra and S22 Ultra, but if you look closely, the screen doesn’t appear to be curved, but rather flat (unless our eyes are deceiving us and it’s subtly curved at the edges). We believe the screen is flat and the illusion of a noticeable slight curve is due to either the frame or the 2.5D glass. However, it is difficult to judge by the performances.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to measure 162.3 x 79 x 8.7mm and weigh around 233 grams. The Galaxy S23 Ultra measures 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.9mm for comparison and weighs 234 grams. This means that the newer model is slightly shorter, wider and has approximately the same thickness. The difference in weight is rumored to be due to the use of… titanium in the frame material, which is a bit concerning given the rumors that Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro series will suffer from overheating issues due to the use of the specific material.
Samsung is also said to have made notable strides in reducing the bezels around the screen, with the website claiming it’s the “narrowest we’ve seen on any smartphone.” In any case, whether it is images, renders or information, we have to be careful of its authenticity because the Korean company has not announced anything. We leave where we are still several months before the official presentation, which will likely take place in January 2024.
