Key Features of All Models

People with phones

As you can expect with most Samsung phones, the features between each of the three phones vary slightly depending on their hierarchy within the lineup.

For example, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have an improved camera system compared to the standard S24, offering a 200MP main camera over a 50MP. 

This is alongside a whole new titanium frame, available in a wider array of colours, such as Titanium Yellow, Titanium Black, Titanium Gray, and Titanium Green.

But remove these from consideration, and you've got some universal improvements across all models.

Here are some below:

Enhanced AI Features

The S24 now comes with improved AI features - Galaxy AI - designed to enhance your everyday experience. This is especially notable in communication, where advanced features such as 'Interpreter' and 'Live Translate' assist in real-time translation of conversations and text in various forms to overcome language barriers and improve overall comprehension.

You also gain other AI apps like 'Chat Assist', 'Note Assist', and 'Circle to Search', designed to help organise tasks, improve your tone of voice to suit different conversations, and Google certain items by circling a specific image on your phone. Read more about all the AI Features here.

Improved Design

The S4 series also has an improved display that hits a jaw-dropping 2600 nits brightness that adapts to your surroundings. As with the S23, Samsung has opted for a more flat display than those released in the past, particularly regarding the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which seeks to abandon any form of curvature altogether.

You also retain beloved features everyone has come to love, such as wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and that nifty S Pen stylus, a known accessory of more expensive Samsung Galaxy variants.

Advanced Processing Power

Alongside these fantastic functionalities is an improved processor - the Samsung Exynos 2400 for the standard and Plus variants and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for the S24 Ultra.

As you can tell, Samsung has revived the tradition of using different processors depending on your location. For example, all three phones in the US have the same Snapdragon chip.

However, don't let that deter you. All models boast enhanced processing temperature management capabilities, designed to handle high-demand tasks more efficiently without overheating.

Plus, you also gain more than enough battery life to last you throughout the day, with some claiming it lasts 17:40 hours of video playback. Read more here.

Combine all this with nearly double the storage space at a lower price with early-release models, and you can certainly understand all the hype.
