Has The Samsung Galaxy S24 Release Date Been Leaked?

TECH NEWS – We’ve heard a few things about the performance of the chip in Samsung’s flagship phone.


The Galaxy S24 series will be launched in 2024, and now we’ve heard exactly when it will hit the stores. The Elec, a Korean publication, wrote that Samsung’s handsets will debut on January 17. Samsung will hold its Galaxy Unpacked event in San Jose, California, and after that, pre-orders will be available from the 18th so that customers can get their hands on the phone between the 26th and 30th. Stores will reportedly be able to buy the Galaxy S24 series from January 30.

January 17 has been mentioned a lot, so we can take The Elec’s information as credible. Samsung is supposed to announce the phones in December, but their prices are still unknown. They will probably be more expensive than the S23 (e.g. because of the generative artificial intelligence). Depending on the location, they’ll be phones with either the Exynos 2400 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, but the Ultra model will definitely have the latter.

And on Twitter, Golden Reviewer shared the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 test results from the Specint06 Big Core benchmark run on the Xiaomi 14 Pro. Qualcomm’s latest system-on-a-chip (SoC) has higher power consumption, which hurts efficiency. A single high-performance core with higher clock speed Cortex A720 cores (which boosts multi-core performance). The benchmark threw out a score of 69.28, which is 13% higher than the increased clock speed of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (60.86), but in return the power consumption is higher at 6.27 watts.

That’s 28% higher than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (4.9 watts), and the un-tuned chip is even more efficient, so Qualcomm may have reached the limits of TSMC’s 4-nanometer N4P process and could only achieve the performance difference at a higher power consumption. According to Golden Reviewer, phone makers who want to use Gen 3 will have to intelligently tune the 8-core CPU cluster so that the power cores don’t reach their highest clock speeds, because that means performance degradation. The Xiaomi 14 Pro has a vapor chamber, so it might be able to tame the chip…
