This is the best Samsung Galaxy S24 leak yet

It’s almost the start of a new year. How can you tell? Because Samsung smartphone leaks are everywhere. Just one day after a huge Galaxy S24 price leak, we now have new renders of all three S24 phones. And these aren’t just any renders — they’re the best ones we’ve seen yet.

Samsung Galaxy S24 renders have been appearing online for months now, but they often come with a caveat: They’re based on CAD designs, are low-resolution files, or have unsightly watermarks plastered all over them. That’s not the case with these newest S24 renders.

The first two images here show the regular Galaxy S24. It appears in yellow and purple colors in this leak, and as we’ve been expecting, it looks a lot like the Galaxy S23. We have a 6.2-inch display with no curved edges, three rear cameras, and a flat frame. It’s not breaking any new ground, but it’s also hard to argue with Samsung’s formula. It’s a solid design, and while not particularly exciting, I’m happy to see it return for another year.

The Galaxy S24 Plus render looks very similar to the standard S24, though it appears in a new gray/silver color. It’s expected to have a larger 6.7-inch screen and three rear cameras with a flat frame.

Finally, there’s the Galaxy S24 Ultra renders. This leak shows it in gray and violet colors, with the gray striking a close resemblance to the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Considering Samsung is reported to also be using titanium for the S24 Ultra, that shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Similar to the S24 and S24 Plus, the S24 Ultra also bears a remarkably similar design to its predecessor. Just like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the S24 Ultra will have a very square body, a 6.8-inch display, and four cameras on its backside. The 200MP camera introduced this year should make a return to the S24 Ultra. What may not return is Samsung’s 10x optical zoom; instead, Samsung may opt for 3x and 5x optical zoom sensors.

Although this latest Galaxy S24 leak doesn’t reveal any new information about the three phones, having such a clear, high-quality look at them is great.

Samsung has yet to say anything official about the Galaxy S24 series, but all signs point to a January 17 release/announcement date. If that’s true, expect Samsung to start teasing the S24 launch in the coming days ahead.

Why I ditched my iPhone 15 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and iPhone 15 Pro in hand.

This is not another “lifelong iPhone user tries Android” story. I use and review all kinds of phones, and I prefer the flexibility of Android. That said, I’ve been on the iPhone 15 Pro since its launch — for two reasons. First, I had been getting the iPhone 14 Pro Max-level battery life on it. Second, I like the stability of social media apps like Instagram and X (formerly Twitter). But the experience has been downgrading for a while now.

Samsung's "AI phone," the Galaxy S24 Ultra, tackles these two issues and gives me some extra features that I didn’t think would be important for me. It’s been a surprisingly fun experience. Here’s why I shifted to the Galaxy S24 Ultra from the iPhone 15 Pro and decided to stay on it. And no, it has nothing to do with AI.

When you want an excellent camera on your new smartphone, choosing the Google Pixel 8 Pro is a wise and safe choice, but what about the big, expensive Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra? After all, it’s Samsung’s top camera phone, and it has features that make it unique among the competition.
