Well, looks like Samsung Australia spilled the beans early about the Galaxy S24 launch! In a quiet little post on December 27th that barely made a blip, they confirmed the S24 lineup will be unveiled on January 18th at an event timed for 5 AM local down under, which translates to January 17th at 3 PM Brasilian time.
The most hyped-up AI features and “Galaxy AI” capabilities are coming to these new devices. And it may have given away a key detail leakers have hinted at – the Galaxy S24 Ultra rockin’ a snazzy titanium build!
Chances are Samsung Australia jumped the gun here, considering the news hasn’t popped up on other official Samsung accounts internationally yet. This early unveil is probably meant to be kept under wraps for now. At least the rumored January launch date aligned nicely with what the hype machine reports suggested for the S24!
Either way, it looks like the secrets are out of the bag that we are less than a month away from the shiny new Galaxy S24 clan of phones headlined by its titanium boss, the Ultra model! AI upgrades sound sweet too. I can’t wait to see what other goodies get revealed as the launch event rolls up!

The upcoming Galaxy S24 series is anticipated to come in versions equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and the recently unveiled Exynos 2400. While modest changes are expected in the design, the devices are set to emphasize generative AI features heavily.
Among the anticipated features are a real-time translator for calls, improved zoom capabilities, brighter screens, and the innovative “Generative Edit” function. This function enables users to move and remove objects while filling empty spaces using AI, although an internet connection may be required.
Additionally, the new Galaxy S24 devices are expected to boast larger capacity batteries, streamlining of the Ultra model’s periscope telephoto camera, and enhanced recording capabilities, including 4K videos at 120 FPS and “uncropped zoom” in 4K videos at 60 FPS, among other exciting features.
