The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is expected to launch around early 2024 and is expected to roll out to more marketing, including India shortly after. The lineup will include three models: the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra. Recently leaks have spilled quite a few details about the phone. A leak from a Galaxy phone reveals the Samsung Galaxy S24 series will come with iPhone-like emergency texting via satellite connectivity. This reiterates earlier leaks about the existence of satellite connectivity.

Separately, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra camera details have been reported, courtesy of the Korean outlet, The Elec.

  • A new screenshot (via) from a Galaxy phone shows that Samsung will call the satellite connectivity feature as ‘Emergency texts via satellite.’
  • The explanation below the feature reads “If you call emergency services when you’re out of range or not connected to a mobile network, we’ll connect you via a satellite network so you can send an emergency text.”
  • The feature is expected to work the same way it does on iPhones.
  • You can send text messages with your GPS location to emergency response teams so you can get help.
  • The feature is expected to be available on Galaxy S24 units powered by Exynos and Snapdragon chips.

Samsung is said to have developed its 5G NTN technology, which offers two-way satellite communication. This meets the standards defined by the 3GPP. There are chances the feature could be limited to some markets initially and expand to other countries gradually.

  • Leaked Samsung Galaxy S24 series renders show the phones’ flat edges and flat screens.
  • TheSamsung Galaxy S24 series Ultra model could have a Titanium build.
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 seriesAll three phones could feature AI capabilities.
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 series leaks can’t take a break, it seems. Well, it’s good for us as we get to see the three phones, presumably called Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra from different angles. We get to see their flat displays and squared-off edges, and also learn about their supposed AI capabilities. We previously heard the upcoming Galaxy flagships could get built-in generative AIfeatures but not exactly what they are. Well, now, we get a hint of what to expect.
  • But, first have a look at the newly leaked images:
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 series design (leaked)

  • The SamsungGalaxy S24 series’ design language is flat in terms of the side edges and the screens. The company is shedding the curves, it seems.
  • The Samsung Galaxy S24 series post on Windows Reportreiterates earlier rumours that at least the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have a Titanium chassis. The vanilla and the Plus model could still stick to the Aluminium build.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 seriesreport also claims the Galaxy S24 Ultra could come in Titanium Black, Titanium Gray, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Yellow colours. While the colours on the regular S24 and the S24+ are expected to be the same, they could carry names like Onyx Black, Marble Grey, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow. Samsung Galaxy S24 series AI features (expected)

If one technology that’s been the talk of the town in 2023, it’s AI. More specifically, generative AI. Samsung is said to pack features like ChatGPT and Dall-E.

The phone could be capable of translating texts within messaging apps in real-time between more than a dozen languages.

Perhaps, there would be a feature to enhance photos using AI like the ones we get to see on the Pixel 7 series.

It will reportedly have an option to find images in your gallery by just looking up the names of objects in the frame. Further, you may be also able to find more details about the object in the image.

Samsung Galaxy S24 series has been spotted to have trademarked “AI phone” and “AI Smartphone” phrases a few days back.
