Samsung had their big Unpacked event today in San Jose, California, where they showed off their new Galaxy S24 series smartphones. Three models were unveiled today: the Galaxy S24, the S24 Plus, and the S24 Ultra. The big news coming out of the event was GalaxyAI, the AI software powering many of the features on the phone. GalaxyAI, partnered with Google’s Gemini, will bring features like real-time language detection and translation (if the person on the other end of the call is speaking a different language than a language you speak, you’ll hear real-time translations, and they’ll in turn, hear real-time translations on their end), Transcript Assist where the software will help transcribe and summarize voice messages and texts into the Samsung Notes app, Generative Edit which will help you edit your photos, and Chat Assist which will help you a phrase a message.
Focusing on the flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra, the phone is made out of titanium. It will feature a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with LTPO technology, a built-in S Pen, a new Gorilla Glass Armor screen that is four times harder to crack, a 2,600 nit panel, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, and the camera gets a big upgrade as well. The rear camera on the S24 Ultra will have four sensors: a 200-megapixel primary sensor, a 12-megapixel ultrawide, a 10-megapixel telephoto with 3X optical zoom, and a 50-megapixel telephoto with 5X optical zoom.
The S24 and S24 Plus models will be manufactured out of aluminum, will be 6.2 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively, and they will both have the same camera – a 50-megapixel primary sensor joined by a 12-megapixel ultrawide and a 10-megapixel telephoto offering 3X optical zoom.
The Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus will have starting prices at $799 and $999, and the S24 Ultra will have a starting price of $1299. The phones will launch on January 31.
