What’s New in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Series of Mobile Phones

How many models does the new Samsung S24 range have?

Samsung has been the leading smartphone manufacturer for more than a decade with its Galaxy range of devices. Now, however, for the first time in 12 years, the Koreans have lost the leading position in terms of volumes of mobile phones shipped in the past year to traditional rival Apple. However, the Asian company has every chance to return to the top of the world hierarchy in 2024. And if you’re wondering how it’s going to do that, well the new Galaxy S24 range of smartphones launched earlier this year is its main asset.

As we have become accustomed to in recent years, the top range from Samsung is divided into three models. The smallest of these is the Galaxy S24 and is dedicated to users who want a phone that is as compact as it is powerful, reports Digital Trends. The intermediate model is the Galaxy S24+, which offers the same functionality as the smaller brother, but in a more generous format. Finally, the top of the range is the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which comes with an even larger screen, a much more powerful camera assembly, but also with the included S-Pen accessory, which will allow users to enjoy a level creative and higher than before.

What’s New in Galaxy S24 Design

At first glance, in terms of design, the new Samsung Galaxy S24 are similar to the phones of the previous generation, but on closer inspection they come with some aesthetic improvements. The screens and back casings are now completely flat, while the metal frame is very slightly rounded and the screens flatter.

The Galaxy S24 and S24+ models have cases made from a new version of Armor Aluminum, which is 17% stronger, according to Samsung. Also, the glass on the front and back is also Gorilla Glass Victus, just like the previous generation devices.

The flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra comes, however, with a number of novelties. The most important of them is the elimination of the curvature of the screen, which has become completely flat. Also, the glass curves slightly at the edges for added comfort in use. The edges are also in the case of “Ultra” a little flatter, but they remain rounded on the sides. The new S24 Ultra is the first Samsung smartphone to receive a titanium case unlike the other two models, whose case is made of aluminum. In addition, the Koreans used a stronger glass, Gorilla Glass Armor from Corning, only for this model. This reduces light reflections by up to 75% compared to the Victus 2 and provides three times more scratch resistance. It remains to be seen whether or not this bottle is that durable. On the back, the S24 Ultra has the same Victus 2 glass as the S23 Ultra.

What the new Galaxy AI technology offers

The new range of Samsung Galaxy S24 mobile phones offers new user experiences. And this is not necessarily due to the latest version of Android – 14 One UI 6.1 – which promises to revolutionize the way you interact with these terminals. One of the outstanding aspects of the new range from Samsung is the implementation of Galaxy AI technology, which redefines the way users will interact with their mobile devices thanks to new functionalities based on artificial intelligence. Samsung claims that its new Galaxy S24 range paves the way for a new era of smartphones that will forever change the way mobile devices bring innovative experiences to their users.

Samsung Galaxy AI enhances almost all experiences on the new smartphone series, starting with facilitating easier and more effective communication without language barriers, continuing with intelligent translations of text messages and calls, and ending with maximizing creative freedom in image capture with Galaxy ProVisual Engine or setting a new standard for online search.

Two-way voice and text translations

Galaxy AI technology contributes to the discovery of a new way of using the mobile phone, which aims to improve every part of life, especially communication, the fundamental function of this device. With the help of the new phones in the Galaxy S24 series, you will be able to communicate more easily and more efficiently than ever, practically defying language barriers, according to Samsung.

You will then be able to chat with a student or colleague from abroad or make a reservation while on holiday in another country using the new feature Live Translate, which provides real-time two-way voice and text translations of phone conversations in the native app. No third-party apps are required, and the AI ​​on your device will keep your conversations completely private. Moving on, another new feature based on Galaxy AI is Interpreter. With this feature, real-time conversations will be able to be instantly translated on the main screen which will be divided into two sections. This way, face-to-face users will be able to read a text transcript of what the other person said. This feature does not require mobile data or a Wi-Fi connection.

With the Samsung S24, organizing and transcribing notes is simplified

For messaging and other apps, Chat Assist will help you improve conversational tones in messages and apps, ensuring accurate and context-sensitive communication. At the same time, the AI ​​built into Samsung’s keyboard can translate messages, emails and more in 13 languages ​​in real time. When traveling by personal car, the system Android Auto will automatically summarize incoming messages and suggest relevant responses and actions. Here we mean sending your estimated time of arrival to a friend so you can stay connected while you focus on driving.

At the same time, functionalities such as Note Assist and Transcript Assist in Samsung Notes makes it easy to organize and transcribe notes, create templates, spell check text, and generate a note cover for a more efficient experience.

The new Galaxy S24 offers innovations in online search

Communication isn’t the only way the new Galaxy S24 series takes the fundamental benefits of Samsung phones into the future. Specifically, the new Galaxy S24 also brings significant innovations in terms of online search, being the first phone to integrate Circle to Search, an intuitive gesture-based feature. To provide users with a remarkable new tool, Samsung turned to the giant Google to make possible new forms of internet search with a simple gesture.

Specifically, with a long press on the home button, users can circle, highlight, scribble or tap any icon on the Galaxy S24 screen to see useful, high-quality search results. In other words, with a simple gesture of circling or touching an object on the screen, users can access useful and relevant information on social networks or on platforms such as YouTube without having to leave the application they are in.

Users will be more creative with the Galaxy S24

Users of phones in the new Galaxy S24 range will be able to be more creative thanks to the ProVisual Engine. This is a comprehensive suite of AI-powered tools that transforms image-capturing skills and maximizes creative freedom from setting up a photo to sharing it on social media.

Photos taken from a distance will no longer be shaky or pixelated. The Quad Tele system of the new Galaxy S24 Ultra, with the new 5x optical zoom lens, works with the 50MP sensor to enable high-performance optical quality from 2x, 3x, 5x to 10x zoom levels thanks to the Adaptive Pixel sensor. At the same time, images show clear results even at 100x with improved digital zoom.

With enhanced Nightography capabilities, photos and videos taken with the Galaxy S24 Space Zoom are excellent in all conditions, even when zoomed in. Capture more light in dark conditions with the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s larger pixel size, now 1.4μm, which is 60% larger than the previous model. Blur is reduced on the Galaxy S24 Ultra with the help of wider optical image stabilizer (OIS) angles. At the same time, when recording videos, the front and rear cameras are equipped with an image processor to reduce noise, and the Galaxy S24 analyzes gyroscopic information to distinguish between the movement of the videographer and that of the subject. This allows for more effective noise removal and results in clearer videos in the dark, even from a long distance away.
