Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus: New benchmark leak confirms overdue RAM upgrade
Earlier this year, reports emerged that Samsung would be bringing RAM upgrades to all Galaxy S24 models, with the series topping out at 16 GB of RAM for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Additionally, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus were said to be available with 12 GB of RAM, 50% more than the current Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus. While the trio remain a few months away from being released, there is evidence that Samsung is prototyping the Galaxy S24 Plus with its rumoured RAM upgrade.
As the screenshot below shows, someone has run the SM-S926N through Geekbench with 12 GB of RAM. For reference, the result appeared a few weeks after the SM-S926B turned up on the same benchmarking website with 8 GB of RAM. Although Geekbench does not name the retail names of either handset, Samsung assigned 'SM-S916' to the Galaxy S23 Plus. Thus, one can deduce that SM-S926 applies to the Galaxy S24 Plus and not the Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Ultra.
Moreover, Samsung uses 'N' prefixes to denote South Korean models, which will feature its in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, too. Seemingly, Samsung will offer the Galaxy S24 Plus in 8 GB and 12 GB of RAM configurations, likely tied to 256 GB and 512 GB of storage, respectively. Currently, Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S24 series in January 2024 at an event in San Fransisco.
