  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy

Display

Samsung is known for having the best displays on smartphones, and it still retains that feat with the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.



The phone has a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that has a variable refresh of 1-120Hz, and it can reach up to 2,600 nits of brightness. One cool thing here is the new Gorilla Glass sheet that helps rid up to 75% of reflections on the screen.

Beneath the display, there is an ultra-sonic fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication.

Design and Build

The design did not change that drastically, it seems Samsung has finally found what works for them.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra now uses a titanium alloy for the frame as it more durable. The phone uses the new Gorilla Glass Armor that is said to be at least 4X tougher.

Processor and Memory

Things are a bit tricky as Samsung uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 but with a special “for Galaxy” tag.
It is said to have a higher clock speed than the normal version, so you can expect the performance to be just a little bit above what other flagships offer.

The phone comes with 12GB of RAM, and 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of internal storage, and no micro SD slot as expected.
In Europe, the base 256GB version will come with just 8GB of RAM for some weird reasons but I think we can tag that as Samsung maths.

Cameras

The Galaxy S23 Ultra had a great camera system so the hope here is that Samsung has worked on making that even better.

First, we are greeted with a new telephoto camera, a 50MP sensor with 5x zoom to replace the 10X of last year. Samsung is sure they made the right decision as they claim that this sensor takes better 10X shots than last year’s.

That new sensor is accompanied by the 200MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera with AutoFocus, and a 10MP 3X telephoto camera.
Like the other rear cameras, there is no change in the selfie camera as we still have a 12MP sensor.

From last year, there seem to be no hardware changes apart from the new sensor. However, we still expect better performance as Samsung should have improved optimizations.

The ProVisual Engine comes with improvements when it comes to noise reduction, and nighttime performance is said to be better too.

When you use Super HDR, you can now see the HDR preview in the camera viewfinder which is a little nice feature to add.

Battery and Charging

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra comes with a 5,000 mAh battery just like its predecessor, and I expect it to last longer as the chipset improved its efficiency.

There are no big changes when it comes to charging, the phone supports 45W wired charging and 15W wireless charging.

Software

This is one aspect where big improvements rarely come in, but Samsung decided to change things. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will come running on Android 14 with OneUI 6.1 on top.

And that is not the elephant in the room, Samsung is now offering 7 years of software support and this is also available on the Galaxy S24 and S24+.

Galaxy AI

Well, during the launch event, Samsung focused a lot on the new AI capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, and here are some of the best.

  • Live Translate and Interpreter help with real conversations. The first one works with the native phone app, while the second is an app that can transcribe live conversations between two people in two different languages.
  • Generative Edit: With this, you can use AI when editing photos. You can highlight an object, and you will be able to move it around or even delete it with the AI adding a fill to cover its absence. There are other edit suggestions that this AI will bring to you.
  • Chat Assist: This enables real-time translation of messages in apps that support it. It works with 13 languages at launch, and it shows the translation below each message.
  • Transcript Assist: This will help you to translate, transcribe, and summarize any voice recordings that you make on the phone.
  • Circle to Search: This is actually a feature that Google worked on. To use it, long press the home button, and you will be able to circle on a subject, and get search results. It also works if you highlight or top on a subject or just even scribble something on the screen.
