  • The eyes go straight to the angular edges of the dummy phones. Even the Ultra model appears to have flat edges. If true, this should make all of these phones less slippery. The comfort aspect would be subjective.

We don’t have confirmations from the brand on any of these specs, features, or design aspects yet. So, take them with a grain of salt. The rumour is that the Galaxy S24 series s dummy will launch on January 17th, 2025. We should have more concrete details by then.

  • The new phones could focus on AI features, cameras and design refinements but will largely look the same as their predecessors.
  • Samsung could unveil its Galaxy S24 in San Francisco again, the city it has chosen for quite a few of its launches earlier.
  • The launch event could happen as soon as January 17th based on new reports.
  • Samsungis readying its next S-series flagships for launch earlier than usual, as per reports. The Galaxy S24 series is expected to be an incremental upgrade but an important one for the brand as it faces a lack of growth in other businesses such as its semiconductor business. The device could launch as early as January and here is the when and where the event will take place
