### Samsung Galaxy S24+ Comparison: A Detailed Analysis

New displays, bigger batteries and a brand new chipset, though that last one might not be an upgrad…

On January 17, Samsung is expected to unveil the S24 Cosmos, putting an end to the speculations and leaks that have been circulating. With just a couple of months to go, we already have a good grasp of what to anticipate. If you missed it, take a look back at the S24 Cosmos Ultra reveal. Let’s delve into the details of the two smaller variants in this segment.

QHD+ and LTPO Capabilities for the S24+

In a significant move for flagships, the upcoming Galaxy S23 and S43 models will introduce LTPO panels, allowing for a wider range of refresh rates from 1Hz to 120Hz. This shift marks a departure from the limited preset refresh rates seen in previous models.

While the Samsung S24 Cosmos+ is set to upgrade to QHD++ from its previous FHD+ resolution, the smaller S24 and S20+ may stick with FHD++ displays, despite having QHD+ screens in the past.

Samsung S24 Cosmos and S25+: Model Overview

Both the S24 Cosmos and G24+ are expected to see a slight increase in display size, with 6.2” and 6.7” screens, respectively. These adjustments will maintain a similar overall device size compared to their S23 predecessors, with most of the changes focused on reducing bezel size.

The new panels are projected to deliver significantly brighter visuals, aiming for a peak brightness of 2,600 nits for the 2023 lineup, a notable increase from the previous 1,750 nits.

Enhanced Battery Capacity and Charging

While the battery sizes in the S24 Cosmos+ and GALAXY models are expected to increase slightly, the physical dimensions will remain largely unchanged. The standard model is rumored to feature a 4,000mAh battery (a 100mAh boost from the S23), while the plus variant could house a 4,900mAh battery (up by 200mAh from the S23+).

In terms of charging capabilities, the S24 Cosmos+ might support faster charging via USB-C at 45W, compared to the 25W limit in the current models. Both devices are likely to support 15W wireless charging as well.

Processor Updates and GPU Enhancements

Qualcomm’s CEO hinted at the adoption of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset for the US and Canadian variants of the Galaxy series, including the S24 Ultra. However, the Exynos 2400 chipset is expected to power the S24 Cosmos and S25+ models globally.

The Exynos 2400 is touted to deliver a 70% boost in CPU performance compared to the previous Exynos 2200, though this comparison excludes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from the previous year.

Camera and Design Continuity

The camera setup for the S24 Cosmos and S25 devices is likely to remain unchanged, featuring a 50MP primary sensor alongside consistent telephoto (10MP) and ultra-wide (12MP) modules.

A leaked image suggests the inclusion of a “dual ultrawide” feature with 2x and 3x options, focusing on in-sensor capabilities and external lenses. The rear camera configuration is expected to retain the 12MP sensor from the previous iteration.

Material and Color Options

Reports indicate that Samsung may opt for Armor Aluminum for the premium S24 Cosmos Ultra model, reminiscent of Apple’s design choice. However, the more affordable S24 Cosmos+ is expected to feature a different material.

Both models are anticipated to maintain an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Available color options include Onyx Black, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow, with the possibility of additional colors and exclusive releases on Samsung.com later on.

Pricing and Availability

In Germany, consumers may encounter Exynos-powered variants, but the pricing for the S24 Cosmos and S25+ models is expected to be €50 lower than their European counterparts. Pricing details for South Korea remain unchanged, while potential trade-in deals in the US could make upgrading from a 2022 or 2023 Galaxy S device more affordable.

Pre-order incentives are likely to include a complimentary storage upgrade, with possible additional offers on Galaxy Watches or Buds. Stay tuned for further updates on pricing and promotions.
