The Korean tech giant Samsung is about to lift the curtain on its flagship series of the year – Galaxy S24. It will consist of three smartphones: the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Ahead of the official launch, some or other leaks are surfacing online every single day. Most recently, we reported about the price leak of the upcoming series. Now, a tipster has uploaded a hands-on video of the S24 Ultra on a popular microblogging platform.
Galaxy S24 Ultra Hands-On Video
X user Benlt Bruhner Pro has recently uploaded a video from known tipster Ice Universe. The video showcases the flat display of the purported Galaxy S24 Ultra, which will debut with the rest of the Galaxy S24 devices on January 17, 2024. Although the screen didn’t light up entirely to reveal how thick the bezels are, a mockup of the smartphone, attached at the end of the video, suggests that the Ultra series will ship with the thinnest bezels on an S series phone yet.
The hands-on video also had a screen guard and a protective case around the phone. But even so, it looks like the Galaxy S24 Ultra is going to be more boxier than ever. The details revealed by the video align with what previous speculations have suggested. Nonetheless, we are only a few days from the official launch event, where Samsung will show the full specifications and design of the Galaxy S24 series.
Galaxy S24 Could Ship With Seven Years Of Software Updates
Another report by Android Headlines suggests that the S24 series could ship with seven years of software updates, up from the standard four years of updates it provided on the S23 series. However, the report doesn’t confirm whether the company intends to push seven or fewer One UI updates. If this happens, Samsung will place its smartphones next to the Pixel 8 series, which ships with seven years of Android updates.
Citing previous reports and rumors, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will ship in four colors, including yellow, violet, gray, and black. Like the iPhone 15 Pro series, the Ultra variant will feature a titanium frame. Recent leaks also suggested that the model’s pricing will be higher than previous models, courtesy of the more expensive frame material and an advanced new chipset.
Earlier this year, Smartprix published high-quality renders of the Galaxy S24 Ultra and the regular Galaxy S24 ahead of any other publication. You can also go through our S24 roundup to learn more details about the smartphone.
