Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus and Galaxy S24 Ultra to launch without charging improvements as 65 W fast charging ruled out
Samsung is a while off from launching the Galaxy S24 series. Currently, the company is expected to introduce its next flagship smartphones in January, a month shy of the Galaxy S23 series' first anniversary. Reportedly, this is in part due to Qualcomm's decision to unveil its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 platform a month earlier than usual too.
Typically, Samsung and its competitors submit their forthcoming devices to regulatory bodies like the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the FCC months ahead of schedule. However, the FCC and its equivalents tend to avoid publishing initial documentation until shortly before a device's official release. Nonetheless, the 3C has already listed what are believed to be a trio of Galaxy S24 models, revealing a few details in the process.
In short, Samsung will make no changes from this year's Galaxy S23 models, contrary to earlier rumours. Thus, the Galaxy S24 will remain limited to 25 W, the same wattage that Samsung affords to many of its mid-range smartphones like the Galaxy A54. Likewise, 45 W wired charging will return for next year's Plus and Ultra models, which has been the case since the Galaxy S22 series.
Based on previous leaks, Samsung may only bring a battery upgrade to its Plus model as well, with a 4,900 mAh cell replacing the 4,700 mAh equivalent in the Galaxy S23 Plus. Moreover, the 3C has disclosed the Galaxy S24 series' codenames. As the images below show, Samsung has assigned SM-S9210 to the Galaxy S24, with SM-S9260 and SM-S9280 serving the Galaxy S24 Plus and Galaxy S24 Ultra, respectively.
