Samsung will bring a serious change to the S24 and S24+ compared to its predecessors.
Next January 2024, Samsung will introduce three new Galaxy S24 smartphones and again there will be a significant difference. What is meant is not the S-Pen, but the chipset of the devices. Samsung uses Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in S24 Ultra, but we only use Exynos 2400 in S24 and S24+.
It’s becoming increasingly clear just how bad the new Exynos 2400 actually is compared to Qualcomm’s current top model. The Exynos 2400 will even have trouble keeping up with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from 2022.

However, those who will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in their smartphone in the future, be it the Galaxy S24 Ultra or another manufacturer’s model, will have the new non-Plus Ultra in the smartphone world. At least in terms of performance which could have been increased again. However, in the first tests with the Xiaomi 14 Pro, efficiency decreased and power consumption increased by 28 percent.
However, we remember: in the current battery test, the Xiaomi 14 Pro still beats the competition. This shows us that many individual values are interesting for rough classification, but do not allow a final conclusion. Samsung will also offer Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the S24 Ultra with different clock speeds, resulting in a different picture.
