Samsung is all set to launch its flagship Samsung Galaxy S24 Series on January 17. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series will include Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra smartphones. Now almost 9 days before the official launch, the question arises whether one should buy a year-old Galaxy S23 Series smartphone or wait for the brand to launch the new Galaxy S24 Series. In this article, we have tried to analyze the reasons behind both these scenarios.

Let us have a look at them one by one.

Reasons to wait for Samsung Galaxy S24 Series

If you ask for an opinion, many will say that they will anyone buy a year-old series when they can get the latest within the next few days. Waiting for the Galaxy S24 Series has quite a few benefits.

1. Faster Charging speeds

Charging speeds have been one of the major drawbacks of Galaxy devices. In an era when brands are offering charging speeds up to 120W or 150W, Samsung has stuck to 45W even for high-end Galaxy S23 Ultra devices. However, this seems to be changing with the Galaxy S24 series as the series might see a boost in fast charging speed to up to 65W. The Galaxy S24 Series is expected to have a dual-battery design and thus faster 65W charging. If this happens, it will be Samsung’s first with such charging speed.

2. More Powerful and Power Efficient Chipset

Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 Series with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoCs made specifically for Samsung. However, this time the brand is reportedly returning to a faster and more efficient Exynos 2400 chipset for Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will run the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. So if you want faster and efficient performance, the Galaxy S24 Series might be a good fit for you.

3. Better Camera Setup

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series is expected to come with an improved camera setup. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will reportedly feature a better 200MP main sensor, a new 50MP 3x telephoto camera, and one more 50MP 5x telephoto camera. While the main camera is almost the same, the 10MP telephoto lens might be replaced by a 50MP telephoto camera. The front camera might also receive an upgrade. So, if you are someone who wants to buy the device for the best photography options, waiting for the Galaxy S24 might be wise for you.

4. Flatter display panel

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series is said to have LTPO technology for its display. All 3 models will reportedly have an LTPO AMOLED panel with a refresh rate going as low as 1Hz to save battery life. Not only that, the displays are expected to be flatter than their predecessors, which means they will be more immune to cracks and scratches.

Reasons for Buying Samsung Galaxy S23 Series

1. Reduced Prices

If you are on a tight budget for buying the best smartphone possible, the Galaxy S23 Series has received a major price cut in India. Days ahead of the Galaxy S24 launch, all 3 models of the Galaxy S23 Series have been made available at discounted prices.

On Amazon, the high-end Galaxy S23 Ultra variant is currently available for Rs. 97,249 which is a huge drop from its original price of Rs. 1,24,999 (flat discount of almost 30k). Additionally, there are offers on HDFC bank cards bringing the price down by 10%. On Flipkart, Galaxy S23+ is available for Rs. 84,999 which means a straight 10k price slash from Rs. 94,999. The 512GB model now costs Rs. 94,999.  The base Galaxy S23 smartphone is selling for Rs. 64,999.

2. Similar Design

For those of you who consider design a major aspect of their smartphones, the Galaxy S24 Series is not expected to offer much. This is because the design will mostly be similar to what Galaxy S23 had without any major refreshments. Weight or thickness might be tweaked but those differences might not be noticeable.

3. Connectivity options same

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series will have almost similar connectivity options- 5G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, USB Type-C, NFC, and more. Although speculations are rife about Samsung bringing satellite connectivity like Apple, there has been no substantial information to back these claims so far.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series will come with many upgrades and if budget is not a constraint for you, then waiting for the brand to launch the newest series will be a wiser design. However, if you are someone who needs to buy a smartphone urgently and are facing budget restrictions, then getting Galaxy S23 series devices for more affordable prices might not be a bad decision too as even after a year, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series is a decent line-up.
