Details regarding the launch and production of the Samsung Galaxy S24 series have recently come to light. In keeping with tradition, this series is anticipated to consist of three distinct models: the Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra. Samsung has already commenced the tantalizing promotion of noteworthy Galaxy S24 attributes, including the revolutionary Zoom Anyplace camera technology and the prospect of satellite connectivity.
Samsung Galaxy S24 launch date (expected date)
The anticipated launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S24, as suggested by the renowned tipster IceUniverse, is slated for the mid to late January timeframe. It’s worth noting that the company has already initiated the production process, indicating an impending release.
IceUniverse had previously pinpointed January 18th, 2024, as the potential launch date, which is a month earlier than the Galaxy S23 series made its debut. This strategic move is believed to enhance Samsung’s competitive edge against rivals such as Vivo, Xiaomi, OnePlus, and other brands planning early-year launches.
Much like the Galaxy S23 series, the company may opt to host the Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco, California. Furthermore, Samsung is anticipated to unveil the Galaxy S24 series in India concurrently with the global launch.
Now, let’s explore what these upcoming phones are expected to bring to the table.
Samsung Galaxy S24 camera features
Samsung has recently unveiled a video elucidating the attributes of their cutting-edge 200-megapixel ISOCELL camera, harnessing the formidable capabilities of the new Snapdragon chip. Anticipated to be equipped with a 200-megapixel primary camera and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, it’s highly probable that the camera features showcased in the video will be integral to the Samsung Galaxy S24 series.
|Zoom Anyplace camera||The video starts off showing the Samsung Galaxy S24 camera’s ability to “simultaneously capture the full field of view and zoomed-in areas on video”. The latter is called Zoom Anyplace camera and lets you zoom between recording up to 4x level at 4K quality. This also means you can zoom in on subjects in the corner and save them at 4K quality.|
|Automatic Subject Tracking||The ISOCELL Zoom Anyplace camera is capable of tracking an individual subject in the video in real time.|
|End-to-End (E2E) AI Remosaic||Remosaicing and image signal processing are performed concurrently, as opposed to a sequential process. This, according to Samsung, saves both time and data (otherwise lost in latency) and leads to “richer details and colors“.|
|Support for HDR photos||In a different post, tipster IceUniverse says the Galaxy S24 series will support HDR photos in photo albums.|
Samsung Galaxy S24 satellite connectivity (expected)
Samsung is contemplating the integration of two-way satellite connectivity in the forthcoming Galaxy S24 series, primarily designed to facilitate emergency communication. The possibility of this feature was alluded to by Park Yong-in, the CEO of Samsung’s System LSI division.
