The new Galaxy S24 series from Samsung has been confirmed. Predictably, the lineup includes three alternatives, namely the standard S24, the More, and the Ultimate, all of which are available for pre-order. As commonly, in various markets, Samsung offers remarkable exchange values, which may entice you to switch from an older model to the most recent one.
So, how do the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ stack up compared to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+? These previous models were launched almost two years ago, in February 2022; however, not a lot seems to have changed externally. This 2024 version of the Galaxy S24 and S24+ brings some significant enhancements in terms of hardware and software.
Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S24: Design and presentations
The Galaxy S24 and S24+ nearly resemble the Galaxy S22 and S22+, except for the flat frames and the absence of a prominent camera contour. Rather, the 2024 models feature individual round cutouts for each rear-facing camera.
Regarding the screens, the Galaxy S24 and S24+ are at a much greater brightness when at peak levels. The 2024 premier phones feature newer Dynamic AMOLED 2X tech with an LTPO / HOP backplane and can achieve 2600 nits of brightness. Likewise, for the first time, the non-Ultimate models receive 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate.
On the contrary, the Galaxy S22 could reach 1300 nits, while the Galaxy S22+ was limited to 1750 nits. Besides, both models were restricted to 48-120Hz. The Galaxy S24+ has also received a higher-resolution panel, with the Galaxy S22+ having a 2340 x 1080 resolution, and the Galaxy S24+ boasting 3120 x 1440 pixels. However, the base Galaxy S24 retains the 2340 x 1080 resolution of the S22. Moreover, the new 2024 flagships offer better Vision Booster tech and introduce a new feature named Adaptive Color Tone, closely resembling Apple’s True Tone, which uses the phone’s cameras to determine the best color and white balance for the screen based on light conditions.
