Samsung to Unveil New Galaxy S24 Smartphones With Enhanced AI on January 17

Samsung this week announced its 2024 Unpacked event, which is set to be held on January 17 in San Jose, California. Samsung is expected to introduce its S24 line of Galaxy smartphones, which will directly compete with Apple's iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro lineup.


Samsung's event announcement teases a "new era of mobile AI," so it's safe to say that Samsung's new smartphones will have enhanced AI capabilities on par with ChatGPT and other AI products. In fact, Samsung says that the new Galaxy S series will feature the "most intelligent mobile experience yet."

Galaxy S24 rumors have suggested that the high-end Ultra model will include a 200-megapixel AI-enhanced camera that is able to identify 12 kinds of objects and optimize them for improved image quality. The AI could also be used to translate messages to more than a dozen languages in real time.

The S24 Ultra is also expected to feature a flatter screen design with a more square shape, and it appears that Samsung is going to transition to a titanium frame, mimicking an Apple design decision for the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌. Samsung is expected to offer the S24 Ultra in black, gray, violet, and yellow titanium shades.

Other Ultra rumors include a 50-megapixel 5x telephoto lens, which is a downgrade from the prior 10x telephoto lens, and Wi-Fi 7 support. The S24 and S24 Plus are expected to be largely similar to the S23 models, though there will be new color options and lager 6.7 and 6.2-inch displays.

Samsung's event will take place on January 17 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and customers who plan to pre-order can reserve a device and receive a $50 Samsung credit. The reservation system does not charge automatically, requiring only a name and an email address to reserve devices. Credits will be able to be redeemed when pre-ordering after the devices debut.

Make sure we keep supporting Korean companies...I mean, that's what we're about right? Sending money to Samsung to rip off American companies.
Do you own any Apple devices? You do realize Apple uses Samsung components in their products, right?

Samsung's roadmap is empty until they hear what Apple is doing.

When was the last time you owned an Android phone?
I use one currently for work. I am forced to use a S22 Ultra for work. and absolutely loathe the OS and how messy it is.

Competition is a good thing.

Usually yes... But competition doesn't seem to affect Apple... It doesn't cause them to drop prices and it doesn't cause them to innovate any quicker... They march to the beat of their own drum regardless of what the competition is doing.
