Samsung Galaxy S24 line could get a price freeze, but less RAM than we’d hoped
The Samsung Galaxy S24 series – including the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra – will certainly be high-end phones, but they may not be as high-end as we had hoped, even in the case of the flagship Ultra- fashion model.
This could be mainly due to the RAM amounts, which according to the leaker @UniverseelIjs will be 8 GB in the case of the standard Samsung Galaxy S24, while both 8 GB and 12 GB models of the Galaxy S24 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra are rumored.
For reference, the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra have the same RAM amounts as rumored for their successors, while the Galaxy S23 Plus only comes in an 8GB configuration, so there could potentially be an upgrade in the case of the S24 Plus can take place.

But that would still mean no upgrade in RAM amounts for two of Samsung’s upcoming S-series phones, and 8GB for a high-end device like the Samsung Galaxy S24 seems quite low by 2023 standards , let alone 2024, when the phone will. launch.
This is also lower than we had previously heard, with previous reports suggesting that there could be a 12GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S24, and that the Galaxy S24 Ultra could come with up to 16GB of RAM.
So we should take this latest leak with a grain of salt, but it comes from a credible source and is backed by a leak. jaux1122writing on Naver, a South Korean blogging platform.
Less RAM means a lower price
They claim that Samsung tested the Galaxy S24 line with more RAM (which explains the previous leaks), but that some specs – and the RAM in particular – ended up being “compromised” to keep prices comparable to Samsung’s models. this year.
The only good news among all this is that the Samsung Galaxy S24 line may not cost more than the S23 series.
That would mean a starting price of around $799.99 / £849 / AU$1,349 for the Galaxy S24, $999.99 / £1,049 / AU$1,649 for the Galaxy S24 Plus, and $1,199.99 / £1,249 / AU$1,949 for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, although we’re not sure why Samsung can’t at least give buyers the choice of more RAM if they want it.
However, this can still be wrong; We’ll probably know for sure on January 17, as these new best Samsung phone contenders will reportedly be launched then.
