At this point, there is hardly anything we don’t know about Samsung‘s Galaxy S24 lineup. The new flagships are still a week away—coming on January 17—but leaks have already revealed almost everything about them. Another massive leak is here to ruin the launch event, revealing more tidbits of information about the devices.
Massive Galaxy S24 leak bares it all ahead of the official launch
An X user recently shared four slides from what appears to be an official Galaxy S24 document Samsung used for training its employees before launch. The slides are marked “confidential,” so they weren’t meant to be seen by the public. But here we are. The first slide details the color options for the new flagships. The Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will come in Amber Yellow, Cobalt Violet, Marble Gray, and Onyx Black colors.
The Ultra will also be available in the same four hues. However, since it features a Titanium frame, Samsung is using the terms Titanium Yellow, Titanium Violet, Titanium Gray, and Titanium Black for its colorways. The Gray version is the signature color for the device (primarily used in marketing materials) and appears to be a slightly different shade of Gray than the other two models. Yellow is the signature color for the base model and Violet for the Plus.
The second slide confirms Samsung’s dual-chip strategy for the Galaxy S24 trio, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Exynos 2400 being the two chips. It doesn’t specify which model will get which processor. However, earlier leaks have revealed that the Ultra will ship with Snapdragon globally, while the other two models will get Exynos in most markets. Both chips bring massive CPU, GPU, and NPU improvements over the Galaxy S23’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The slide suggests that the Galaxy S24 series will offer a more enjoyable gaming experience thanks to improved ray tracing and faster touch response. The new flagships bring a 12% improvement in the touch response speed. They also feature a larger vapor chamber for enhanced cooling performance. It is 1.9 times larger in the Ultra, 1.6 times larger in the Plus, and 1.5 times larger in the base model.
A massive brightness boost and 8K videos at 5x zoom are on the cards
The latest leak also confirms a massive display brightness boost for the Galaxy S24 lineup. All three models will have a peak HBM (high brightness mode) brightness of 2,600 nits and a maximum local rightness of 1,500 nits. The figures for the Galaxy S23 series are 1,200 nits and 1,750 nits, respectively. The phones will feature Vision Booster for enhanced color accuracy and contrast. You can manually adjust the color tone and temperature, though.
Last but not least, the leaked slides settle the confusion around the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s zoom cameras. The phone does feature a 50MP 5x telephoto zoom camera instead of the 10MP 10x lens found in the 2023 model. However, Samsung claims that you will still get optical zoom quality at 10x magnification. The device also features a 3x zoom lens and can capture lossless pictures at 2x magnification. You get up to 100x hybrid Space Zoom as well.
Additionally, the Galaxy S24 Ultra can capture 8K videos with its 5x zoom camera. This is a massive upgrade over the previous-gen model, which can record 8K videos with its primary camera only. The Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ lack a 5x zoom camera, though. Their optical zoom capability is limited to 2x and 3x magnification, while Space Zoom is limited to 30x magnification. The two models cannot capture 8K videos with their zoom camera.
As expected, Samsung will leverage AI to improve the camera performance of the Galaxy S24 series. At high zoom levels, the phones will use AI-powered multi-frame processing and Super Resolution based on deep learning to give you better pictures. The new flagships will also feature AI-powered photo and video editing tools, as well as AI translation of audio calls in real-time. Stay tuned for the official launch next week.
