Galaxy S24 price leaks surface, satellite connectivity may be skipped once again

    Get ready for the buzz! Samsung is gearing up to unveil its highly anticipated Galaxy S24 series in just a few weeks, and the rumor mill is working overtime. As we inch closer to the big reveal, leaks are pouring in, giving us a sneak peek into what's in store.

One hot topic on everyone's lips is the potential price hike for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Brace yourselves, folks, because not one, but two leaks have hit the scene. According to reports from GalaxyClub, the Ultra is slated to start at €1,449 in Europe for its base 256GB model. That's a notch up from the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which set you back €1,399. Hold on, there's more – Roland Quandt of WinFuture spills the beans on Sweden's pricing, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra kicking off at 17,990 SEK and the 512GB variant at 19,490 SEK. Checking Samsung's website in Sweden, the 512GB model is listed at 18,990 SEK, a smidge less than its upcoming sibling.

Now, the burning question: Will the price surge make its way across the pond to the US? The Galaxy S23 Ultra started at $1,199, and if we take these European prices as a crystal ball, $1,249 could be on the cards.

But that's not all – conflicting reports are swirling around the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ prices. The plot thickens as we await official confirmation on this front.

Stay tuned as we keep our ears to the ground for more juicy details on Samsung's Galaxy S24 series. The excitement is building, and we'll be here to break it all down for you.

Hold onto your hats, folks, because the Galaxy S24 series saga continues with more twists and turns. Let's dive into the latest scoop from the grapevine.

According to the ever-reliable Roland Quandt, the Galaxy S24 is set to maintain its ground in Sweden, launching at the familiar price tag of 11,490 SEK, mirroring its predecessor, the S23. Not to be outdone, the Galaxy S24+ follows suit, standing firm at 14,490 SEK, unchanged from the last model. But here's where it gets interesting - whispers from GalaxyClub suggest that, for the rest of Europe, the Galaxy S24 and S24+ might just be cutting some slack on the pricing front. Buckle up for this: the S24 could kick off at €899, a step down from €949, while its larger sibling, the S24+, might enter the stage at €1,149, down from €1,199.

Now, why the surge in the Ultra's price? GalaxyClub has a theory. Brace yourselves for more RAM firepower, with the base model now boasting a whopping 12GB, up from the previous 8GB. Looks like Samsung is unleashing the big guns to justify that price tag.

But wait, there's more! ETNews spills the beans on network testing in Korea, revealing a surprising omission. Brace yourselves – the Galaxy S24 series might not jump on the satellite connectivity bandwagon. Apple took the plunge with the iPhone 14 series in 2022, but Samsung seems to be tapping the brakes. Remember, with the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung hinted it was waiting for the tech to be "ready." The plot thickens, especially considering that Samsung's own cellular modems for Exynos chipsets are satellite-ready. What's the holdup, Samsung?

Zooming out to the broader Android scene, Qualcomm recently threw in the towel on its satellite connectivity efforts, and the silence on new tech developments is deafening. The plot thickens, and as we eagerly await more tidbits, one thing's for sure – the Galaxy S24 series is keeping us on our toes! Stay tuned for the next episode of the Samsung saga.
