The Samsung Galaxy S24 series may arrive early next year at a Galaxy Unpacked event, and as always, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to debut as a productivity-focused handset. We haven’t heard much about the release date of the Galaxy S24 flagships yet, but ahead of that, a tipster has suggested the key specs of the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The upcoming smartphone is tipped to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and could pack a quad rear camera setup led by a 200-megapixel primary camera. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to pack a 120Hz refresh rate display and titanium bezels.

Tipster Yogesh Brar (@heyitsyogesh) submitted the alleged key specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra on X (formerly Twitter). According to the tipster, the phone will continue to run Android 14 based on A UI 6 and features a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED LTPO (low temperature polycrystalline oxide) display with 120Hz refresh rate. It is said to drive on Qualcomm’s yet to be announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC would come as an upgrade to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC powering the ongoing Galaxy S23 series.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is said to come with a quad rear camera setup, led by a 200-megapixel primary camera. The rear camera unit is also expected to include a 50-megapixel telephoto shooter, a third 12-megapixel sensor and a second 10-megapixel sensor. The 50-megapixel sensor would be one significant upgrade over Galaxy S23 Ultra 10 megapixel telephoto sensor. For selfies and video chats, there may be a 12-megapixel front camera. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is tipped to house a 5,000mAh battery that supports 45W fast charging.
