First images of the Galaxy S24 show an iPhone-inspired design – 01net

We are at the beginning of a phase in which information about Samsung’s future high-end smartphones begins to condense. Today we take a first look at the design of the Galaxy S24.

If you believe these first images shared by leaker @OnLeaks, that is the case Samsung Galaxy S24 would bring about a change design compared to the S23. A new look reminiscent of an iPhone.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 would change its look

As always, the images come from the smartphone’s computer-aided design files. The main change we see in this version of the Galaxy S24 is the frame, which is now completely flat.

Samsung would therefore put an end to the curved edges towards the screen that we now know on the Galaxy S23 in order to get closer to the design of the iPhone. Squarer edges, which are not to everyone’s taste, but have the advantage of providing a good grip.

Another, more anecdotal change is the placement of the LED flash, which is still to the right of the three camera modules, but placed higher. On the right edge of the phone we find the power button and the volume adjustment button.

More interesting is this elliptical area below. According to the source, it is an “Ultra Wide Band” (ULB) antenna which, as the name suggests, would offer a very wide bandwidth for ever higher speeds.

The presence of such an antenna could be explained by the presence of a new material used to design the frame of the Galaxy S24. It would be premature to talk about titanium here, as this alloy may be reserved for the Ultra version of the smartphone.

At the bottom we would find the USB-C port, the slot for the SIM card as well as a microphone and a speaker. The Galaxy S24 would benefit from a 6.1-inch screen like its predecessor. Its dimensions would also be very close: 147 × 70.5 × 7.6 mm, compared to 146.3 × 70.9 × 7.6 mm for the Galaxy S23.

The release date of the Samsung Galaxy S24 is becoming clearer

This new “flat” design reminds us of a previous leak surrounding the Galaxy A15, which could also take advantage of this design point. After unifying the placement of camera modules across its range, Samsung could review the appearance of all its smartphones in 2024.
