Samsung Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus Roundup

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event is set to unveil the Galaxy S24 series, the company’s flagship smartphone for 2024. As usual, the lineup features three models: the standard Galaxy S24, the slightly larger Galaxy S24 Plus, and the top-of-the-line Galaxy S24 Ultra.

While we’ve already covered the Galaxy S24 Ultra in a separate comprehensive roundup, let’s turn our attention to the remaining two models: the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus. What can we expect from these smartphones?

Aluminium, yet sturdy design

The Galaxy S24 and S24+ will have a familiar-looking design, both featuring a durable glass-sandwich build protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It’s held together by an improved Armor Aluminum frame.

The phones will come in four standard colors — Onyx Black, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow, with some exclusive colors available on Additionally, they’ll maintain the IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

The front of the phones is mostly unchanged too. The Galaxy S24 will have a 6.2-inch screen, and the S24 Plus a 6.7-inch screen. And, both will use a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, among other things. 

But the Galaxy S24 Plus is expected to upgrade its screen resolution to QHD+, a step up from FHD+, which the smaller S24 will continue to use. Both models will boast a peak brightness of 2600 nits, equal to the Ultra model.

Exynos and AI

The Samsung Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus are set to see some changes in their chipsets. According to recent leaks, the smartphones will use Samsung’s in-house Exynos 2400 SoC globally, except in the US and Canada.

Samsung Ecynos chip

Samsung introduced the Exynos 2400 in the latter part of last year. This chip is said to improve CPU performance by 70% compared to its predecessor, the Exynos 2200. However, this comparison isn’t against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, which was also released last year, so it’s still unclear how the new chip will perform in real-world use. We’ll need to wait and see how well this new chipset performs once the phones are released.

Both models will come with Android 14 OS and the One UI 6.1 custom skin. We are also expecting Samsung to include many of the AI features it’s been touting, from live translation, to dynamic lock screen and more. 

Pretty much identical cameras

The camera systems on these two Galaxy phones are almost the same. Both will have three cameras on the back. A 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. 

For selfies and video calls, they will have a 12-megapixel front camera that also has dual-pixel autofocus. Key features of these cameras include Nightography for low-light video, Super HDR, the ability to record in 8K, and a variety of shooting modes.


The Galaxy S24 will have a 4,000mAh battery, supporting 25W fast charging with a cable and 15W when charging wirelessly. The Galaxy S24+ will improve on this, featuring a larger 4,900mAh battery with 45W wired fast charging and the same 15W wireless charging.


The Galaxy S24 is rumored to start at around 899 Euros (about USD 984), and the Galaxy S24+ might be priced at about 1,149 Euros (approximately USD 1,257).

Samsung will also announce pre-order benefits which should include a free storage upgrade. Additionally, there might be discounts on Galaxy Buds FE and Galaxy Watch models when you buy a Galaxy S24 series phone.
