THE Galaxy S24 the rumor mill is really kicking off right now, despite the fact that the phone isn’t expected to launch until early next year. The latest rumor to appear online claims to reveal how much RAM we can expect in the next family of phones – and it’s more than we have in the Galaxy S23 series.
Leaked from Twitter @Tech_Reve, which has been a source of rumored Galaxy S24 specs for the past few days, claims that the Galaxy S24 will come with 12GB of RAM. The S24 Plus will come with the same amount, while the S24 Ultra will apparently feature a boosted 16GB.
The Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus both came with 8GB of RAM, while the S23 Ultra offered a choice of 8GB or 12GB. Unnecessary, the extra RAM could prove to be a major performance boost for the S24. Especially given Samsung’s habit of sticking to 8GB of RAM for the Standard and Plus models.
We haven’t seen an Ultra 16GB model since the release of the Galaxy S21 Ultra two years ago, while the Plus model hasn’t offered more than 8GB since 2020. The standard Galaxy S model, as far as I know, has never offered more than 8GB of RAM.
On top of that, Tech_Reve claims that “every version” of the phones will come with this RAM configuration. So you might not have to choose between an 8GB and 12GB Galaxy S24 when it launches next year.
Tech_Reve also claims these are “solid rumors” rather than “unconfirmed ones that came out earlier”. Presumably they are talking about previous rumors suggesting the Galaxy S24 lineup will get a RAM boost. Although that’s not to say we can just take their word for it, and there’s every chance that these rumors will turn out to be incorrect, especially at this early stage.
Samsung Galaxy 24 – other early rumors
Recent rumors link the Samsung Galaxy S24 to come with the same cameras as the Galaxy S23. While disappointing, it’s not a disaster, as the Galaxy S23’s camera is good enough to land a spot on our best camera phonethe list. That says the The Galaxy S24 Ultra could come with a new variable telephoto lenscapable of offering 3x and 10x optical zoom in a single lens.
The Galaxy S24 could get a major performance boost on top of that. We expect the phone to come packing the Snapdragon 8 gen 3, which is expected to launch later this year. However, some models can be delivered with the Exynos 2400, who is rumored to be making a comeback if Samsung can fix some power consumption issues. However, we still expect to see Qualcomm’s chip in the US regardless of Samsung’s decision.
Considering the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 The chipset has already proven to be an Android powerhouse, especially with the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy variant, we expect great things from the next generation. Although it may catch up Apple A17 Bionic will be another matter. At the very least, rumors point to the Galaxy S24 GPU blows Apple out of the water.
The Galaxy S24 isn’t expected to launch until next January at the earliest, so we won’t get any confirmation of these rumors for several months. Until then, we’re going to have to sit still and be patient. But we’ll bring you the latest and greatest Galaxy S24 news when we hear it, so be sure to check back and see what else is out there.
