Samsung Galaxy S24 Leak: A Change in Design?
A recent leak of the Samsung Galaxy S24 has excited tech enthusiasts, as it purportedly reveals a new design choice for the upcoming phone. The leak, in the form of full 360-degree renders, suggests that Samsung is moving away from the rounded edges of its predecessors and opting for a flat-edged look.
The leak, released by prominent leaker Steve McFly, also known as @OnLeaks, in partnership with the website SmartPrix, showcases a rotating 360-degree render of what is claimed to be the design for the Galaxy S24. From the back, the render looks like a typical Galaxy phone, particularly as it retains the vertical alignment of three rear cameras seen in the Galaxy S23.
One notable design change highlighted in the render is the presence of metal sides, resembling the metallic and flat sides of recent iPhones. This departure from the colored sides of the Galaxy S23 may indicate a shift in Samsung’s design philosophy. However, it’s important to approach this information with caution, as renders usually rely on specifications and documents and may not accurately reflect the final material and color choices made by Samsung.
The render also reveals the inclusion of an ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna on the side of the phone. This suggests that the UWB antenna will be more prominently positioned on the outside of the Galaxy S24, in contrast to previous Galaxy handsets where it was integrated within the phone.
In terms of dimensions, SmartPrix suggests that the Galaxy S24 will have a similar size to its predecessor, with dimensions of 147 x 70.5 x 7.6 mm compared to the Galaxy S23’s 146.3 x 70.9 x 7.6 mm. Additionally, the leak predicts a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, indicating little change from the Galaxy S23 in terms of display specifications.
Another set of leaks by Steve McFly, this time in partnership with GizNext, offered renders of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus. These renders showcased a design very similar to the standard Galaxy S24, with a metallic finish on the side frame. The leaked dimensions for the Galaxy S24 Plus are also nearly identical to the previous year’s S23 Plus.
While these leaks provide exciting insights into the potential design of the Samsung Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus, it’s important to remember that they are not official confirmations. Samsung has not yet finalized the appearance of the phones, and there may be changes before their expected release in early 2024.
In the meantime, fans of Samsung’s flagship phones can continue to speculate and eagerly anticipate the official announcements regarding the Samsung Galaxy S24 series.
