The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is expected in January 2024, where the flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S24 series, including the older S24 Ultra model, are expected to be presented. The new flagship is expected to get a titanium body instead of the traditional aluminum body. And it is already possible to compare the silver Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra with its predecessor, the black Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Comparison photos posted by the account Ice universe on social network X, but the watermarks indicate that they come from another source. The most noticeable difference between the new device and its predecessor is the smoother texture of the titanium alloy body. Note that experience with the iPhone 15 Pro has shown that this material is inferior to stainless steel in strength.
The overall thickness of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has been reduced to 8.6mm and the speaker gap at the bottom edge is no longer a grille, but a massive cutout that poses a potential threat to sound quality. The ventilation holes have moved from bottom to top and the surface of the S Pen stylus has become flat instead of convex.
In terms of feel, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra smartphone is likely to differ significantly from its predecessor – the case with a smoother texture is more comfortable to hold and the buttons on the case have become wider, which also ensures more comfort. The most important question is whether a smartphone made of titanium alloy is durable enough, but it’s still too early to tell.
