Samsung Galaxy S24 series screen protector

  • The standard and the plus versions have rounded edges, while the ultra variant has sharp edges.
  • The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra’s screen protector has flat edgescompared to the S23 Ultra’s slightly curved edges.
  • The protectors back the reports that said the Samsung Galaxy S24 series will have symmetrical bezels. This means the bezels are slightly thinner compared to the S24 lineup.

  • The Plus and Ultra models could be thicker than their predecessors

Samsung Galaxy S24 series specifications (expected)

  • Display:The Samsung Galaxy S24 is tipped to come with a 6.1-inch FHD+ display, while the Plus version could feature a 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display. Lastly, the Ultra could come with a 6.8-inch AMOLED WQHD+ display, a 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+.
  • Processor:All three models could come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC paired with Adreno GPU. But there could be Exynos 2400 SoC in select regions, probably including in India.
  • Software:The Samsung Galaxy S24 series could ship with Android 14-based One UI 6 software out of the box.
  • Cameras:Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra could sport a 200MP+12MP+10MP+ 3x zoom quad camera setup. While the regular and Plus version could feature 50MP + 10MP + 12MP sensors.
  • Battery:The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra could pack a 5,000mAh battery with a 45W fast charging support.
  • Instagram is working on a shortcut for the Galaxy S24.
  • It will let you open the Instagram camera directly from the lockscreen.
  • This feature might be exclusive to the Galaxy S24 series.
  • Samsung’s upcoming flagships, the Galaxy S24series is expected to debut early next year. It could feature at least three phones — Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra. There are multiple leaks already on the hardware upgrades, design and specs. Now a new leak reveals an Instagram feature that will arrive on the Galaxy S24 series.
  • Instagram camera shortcut on Galaxy S24 series

  • A new feature, or shortcut rather, that Instagram is testing is a faster way to open the app’s camera. First spotted by tipster Alessandro Paluzzi, Galaxy S24 users will be able to access the Instagram camera from their phone’s lockscreen. This is a feature that can be turned on from Instagram’s settings, and it will enable a shortcut that will let you open the camera directly from the lockscreen.
  • So this way you won’t even have to unlock your phone to open the Instagram app in case you want to use its camera. This shortcut will presumably be only for the Instagram camera shortcut, and not the app. But since the Galaxy S24 series is yet to debut and we don’t have screenshots of the feature, the details aren’t confirmed yet. Also, it seems like this Instagram camera shortcut is going to be exclusive to be the Galaxy S24 series.
  • This might not seem like a major feature but it’s still useful considering how Instagram camera shortcut is one of the most widely used social apps.
