Galaxy S24: Samsung's New Year's Surprise!

Galaxy S24

Reports suggest that the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S24 series, which includes the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, is set to make its debut earlier than expected, with a significant increase in production volumes compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 series.

Launch Timing

It's projected that there will be a gap of just over five months between the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 and the unveiling of the Galaxy S24 series. Samsung is aiming to release these flagship smartphones before the anniversary of the current Galaxy S23 series, demonstrating the company's commitment to staying ahead in the highly competitive smartphone market.

The Chinese tech giant, Xiaomi, is also making waves in the smartphone industry. Rumors suggest that Xiaomi is on track to launch the Xiaomi 14 series just before its Singles' Day special event in China, which traditionally falls on November 11. This event is set to occur a month before the introduction of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro, potentially putting Xiaomi's next-gen flagship devices on the market less than two months after its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-based flagships.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

The key to these early launches lies in the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, expected to be unveiled by Qualcomm in October. This release comes eleven months after the introduction of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, signaling Qualcomm's commitment to pushing the boundaries of mobile technology.

Notably, Qualcomm has transitioned to using TSMC N4P nodes for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, marking a slight upgrade from the N4 nodes that underpinned all Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 variants. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is rumored to feature an ARM Cortex-X4 prime core clocked at 3.3 GHz, three Cortex-A720 performance cores capable of boosting to 3.15 GHz, an additional two Cortex-A720 cores restricted to 2.95 GHz, and a pair of Cortex-A520 efficiency cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.27 GHz.

Furthermore, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to house the Adreno 750 GPU, which is anticipated to outperform the Adreno 740 found in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 by a substantial margin, possibly exceeding a 50% improvement in graphics performance. An even more powerful variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, specifically tailored for the Galaxy series, is rumored to enhance its Cortex-X4 prime core, pushing it from 3.3 GHz to 3.39 GHz.

Production and Release

Reportedly, Samsung is gearing up to commence mass production of the Galaxy S24 series in November, a month earlier than the production start for the Galaxy S23 series in the previous year. This accelerated production schedule suggests that Samsung is eyeing a January 2024 launch for its next-generation Galaxy S smartphones, setting the stage for an exciting start to the new year for tech enthusiasts.

In terms of production volumes, ETNews has reported that Samsung plans to manufacture an impressive 30 million units of the Galaxy S24 series, representing a 10% increase compared to its predecessor. Notably, the Galaxy S23 series had already outsold the Galaxy S22 series by over a fifth, making this 10% uplift a rather conservative estimate on Samsung's behalf.

ETNews further adds that the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to dominate the production numbers, with an estimated 15 million units slated for production, while both the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus are anticipated to have 7.5 million units each produced.


In conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy S24 series is poised to make a grand entrance into the smartphone market with earlier launch timings and increased production volumes. The introduction of the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor promises to elevate the performance of these devices, and competition from Xiaomi adds to the excitement in the tech world. With Samsung aiming for a January 2024 launch, tech enthusiasts can look forward to an eventful start to the new year.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Samsung Galaxy S24 series and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor as we approach their official unveilings in the coming months.
