In recent developments, reputable tipster Ice Universe let the cat out of the bag, affirming that Samsung is set to embrace a flat design for its upcoming Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. This revelation has gained further traction with corroborating insights from the prolific leakster, OnLeaks, in collaboration with Smartprix. Their combined efforts have culminated in the unveiling of the Galaxy S24’s striking design.
Breaking Away from Convention
Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S24 proudly boasts a flat back. However, it marks a significant departure from the S23’s curved frames. Instead, it sports flat frames reminiscent of Apple’s iPhone, a design choice that may not sit well with all users due to its potential impact on ergonomics.
Noteworthy Design Tweaks
A keen observer will notice that the LED flash on the rear of the Galaxy S24 has been strategically repositioned between the first and second cameras, diverging from the placement seen on the Galaxy S23. Despite these alterations, the button layout remains consistent, with the power button and volume rocker still adorning the right-side frame. Adding to the mix is the introduction of a UWB (Ultra Wideband) antenna. At the base of the device, you’ll find the trusty USB-C port, flanked by a SIM card slot, microphone, and speaker.
While the Galaxy S24 retains the 6.1″ display size of its predecessor, the Galaxy S23, there are subtle differences in its overall dimensions. The Galaxy S24 measures 147 x 70.5 x 7.6 mm, deviating slightly from the Galaxy S23’s measurements of 146.3 x 70.9 x 7.6 mm.
Interestingly, leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy A15, which surfaced last week, also exhibit flat frames. This suggests that Samsung is poised to adopt this design trend more widely across its smartphone lineup in the upcoming year.
Turning our attention back to the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S24, insider reports hint at an earlier-than-usual launch date of January 18 next year. This aligns with the simultaneous releases of the S24+ and S24 Ultra. If these speculations hold true, brace yourself for an influx of news and updates on the entire Galaxy S24 lineup in the weeks to come.
