As the tech world continues to dissect the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung is already gearing up for its next big thing. The Galaxy S24 series — including the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra — have received their 3C certification in China. This not only indicates that the devices meet safety standards but also reveals key features, particularly in the realm of charging speeds.
What the 3C Certification Reveals
The 3C (China Compulsory Certificate) mark is a safety standard that all devices imported, sold, or used in China must meet. According to the certification details, the Galaxy S24 Ultra (SM-S9280) and the Galaxy S24+ (SM-S9260) will both support 45W fast charging. The standard Galaxy S24 (SM-S9210) is set to feature 25W fast charging. As expected, all three models will come with 5G support.
The Chipset Conundrum
While charging details are significant, the chipset under the hood remains a topic of hot discussion. All Galaxy S23 models are equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. However, there’s speculation that Samsung may switch to the homegrown Exynos 2400 SoC for the Galaxy S24 models in certain regions, while sticking to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the U.S. and China. Unlike previous years, the Exynos chip is showing promise, with reports suggesting that the 2400 will sport a deca-core configuration.
Early Benchmarks and Camera Specs
Tipster Ice Universe has added to the Galaxy S24 buzz, stating that the Ultra model will include a 200MP primary camera using an optimized version of the 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. As for the display, the tipster expects a significant brightness bump, from the S23 Ultra’s 1750 nits to a peak of 2500 nits in the S24 Ultra.
What to Expect Next?
Samsung is ticking off tasks for the Galaxy S24 series, indicating that more information could be unveiled soon. The U.S. version of the Galaxy S24+ has already made a cameo on Geekbench, running the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with 8GB of RAM. With potential chipset announcements slated for next month, the Galaxy S24 series is gradually taking shape, and it’s only a matter of time before Samsung officially pulls the curtain.
The Galaxy S24 series is shaping up to be a noteworthy upgrade, especially in terms of charging speeds and possible chipset configurations. As Samsung works through its to-do list for its 2024 flagship line, the tech community eagerly awaits more details. With each new certification and leak, the Galaxy S24 series is becoming less of a mystery and more of a highly anticipated reality.
