Expected for the start of 2024, more precisely in mid-January, Samsung’s Galaxy S24s have been in the news for many weeks through information leaks and serial rumors. After multiple 3D renderings of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, evoking several design developments compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the first photos have just been published.
Some notable differences between the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S24 Ultra
In a Twitter/X post, the user David Martin (@DavidMa05368498) shared three photos of Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra. Through these images, which highlight the design developments compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, one change proves more striking than the others: the chassis.
While the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will take great inspiration from the last three generations of iPhone by adopting flat edges, the Ultra model would opt for another strategy. Indeed, we still notice rounded edges, but much more discreetly than on previous generations.
This development seems to follow another: the end of the curved screen. While the panel previously enveloped the borders of the chassis on the Galaxy S23 Ultra and previous generations, Samsung has chosen a flat screen offering a more direct break with the borders.
We then notice that the right edge accommodates the power button and the volume key, as well as a UWB antenna. Note, various reports highlight that the chassis will adopt one of the specificities of Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro: a titanium coating.
As for the back, no change compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra. The waterdrop layout remains the same, still with five separate sensors and a flash.
A small change should still be mentioned: a round lens for the periscopic telephoto lens, previously rectangular. A development which follows in the wake of previous rumors, which predicted a lesser optical zoom on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, thus going from a x10 zoom to a x5 zoom.
