Rumors that Samsung will release its next Galaxy S24 a little earlier than usual are increasing.
A new report from a Korean publication The Elect (via SamMobile) claims that Samsung’s next flagship will be announced on January 17, 2024, with the device lineup available for pre-order the following day. The Galaxy unpacked event will also take place in San Jose, California.
The report states that the thought process behind an early launch date is to improve sales in the first half of next year. Unsurprisingly, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra at the launch event.
This isn’t the first news pointing to a January release. Last month, sources speaking with SamMobile claimed that the new device would be revealed “in early to mid-January”, which was supported by tipster Ice Universe, who said that the Galaxy S24 series had entered mass production.
The last Galaxy S flagship phone to land this early was the S21, announced on the 14th and released on January 29th. The Elect claims that buyers could start their S24 as early as January 26, which would be one of the first releases in Samsung’s recent history. The S22 series was launched in February last year, while the Galaxy S20 was announced in February and available for purchase on March 6. The Galaxy S10 had a similar launch schedule, releasing on March 8, 2019.
We’ll find out if this date and location is accurate in the coming weeks, but given the number of recent leaks, it seems likely that Samsung is aiming for an earlier version. The company is also looking to add new AI skills to the Galaxy S24 lineup.
A new feature called “Live Translate Call,” which appears intended for the Galaxy S24, will automatically translate calls, in real time, directly through the native phone app. Samsung has also developed its own generative AI model, called Gauss, which can edit and create images, summarize documents, and serve as a coding assistant.
How this all boils down to user-friendly features remains to be seen. But Samsung seems to be thinking specifically about how it will integrate advanced AI tools into everyday applications, with Live Translate Call being a good example of bridging that gap. If the company has more up its sleeve, it will both solve a long-standing problem with its phones’ features and challenge Google’s AI-laden Pixel 8.
