Samsung may launch the Galaxy S24 series early 2024 and this obviously makes room for constant leaks and rumors. The latest information gives a hint about the chipset choice and this could mean that we are going back to the same strategy that Samsung followed previously. This is what this means!
Galaxy S24 series gets two chipset options
According to The ElectricQualcomm’s Cristiano Amon has hinted at one Exynos-Snapdragon chipset combination for the Galaxy S24 series, just like before. Amon suggested during Qualcomm’s recent earnings meeting that Qualcomm has a “majority share” when it comes to the Galaxy S24 series.
While this isn’t a direct confirmation, it does tell us that not all Galaxy S24 phones will ship with the recent version Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform. There will also be one Exynos 2400 variant based on region (European and Korean markets could get the Exynos variant, while the other markets including North America could get the Snapdragon variant).
It is also suggested that the Galaxy S24 and S24+ could feature the Exynos 2400 chipset and the Galaxy S24 Ultra could be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. There’s no concrete word on this yet, so it’s best to take this with a grain of salt and wait for official details to emerge.
To recall, Samsung used both Exynos and Snapdragon chipsets until the Galaxy S22 series, but changed its strategy with the Galaxy S23 series and gave it the power of the purpose-built Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy with an upgraded GPU. The Galaxy S24 series also gets the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy SoC with a 1000 MHz GPU, according to the latest leak. While there’s no word on the GPU clock speed of the original Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, it could be higher for the Galaxy S24 phones.
The Galaxy S24 series is expected to receive camera and other upgrades while looking a lot like its predecessor models (see renders 1, 2). This could have too a titanium construction like the iPhone 15 Pros and there could be black, gray, violet and yellow color options. The phones will also likely arrive a little earlier than usual. Since we don’t have any official details, it’s best to wait a little longer. We’ll update you as soon as we have something substantial, so stay tuned.
