Samsung is less than two months away from announcing its next-generation flagship smartphone. And several features of the upcoming devices have leaked over the past few months. Some rumors claimed that Samsung will finally upgrade RAM on its high-end devices, but a new rumor shoots down those claims.
Galaxy S24 series phones will have same RAM as predecessors
According to usually reliable tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), the base Galaxy S24 will come equipped with just 8GB RAM, with no option to upgrade memory with pricier variants. The Galaxy S24+, though, will have a variant with 12GB RAM, but its entry-level version will still use 8GB RAM. The rumor also claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will still come with 8GB RAM in entry-level model and 12GB RAM in higher-specced mode.
If this information is correct, it does not look good for Samsung, at least from the optics perspective. Consumers will not like Samsung cutting costs and not offering more RAM in its flagship smartphone lineup for four years in a row. This comes in at a time when these devices are expected to offer on-device AI, which needs more memory. It especially looks terrible compared to all other rival smartphones from competing Android brands that offer 16GB RAM or even up to 24GB RAM on some models.
