These two rumors have been making the rounds for a while now, and a leak coming from the credible Roland Quandt
has their sources confirm every specs nook and cranny of the Galaxy S24 series
, including the aforementioned idiosyncrasies.
Galaxy S24 Ultra vs Galaxy S23 Ultra vs Oppo Find X7 Ultra camera setup
First things first, since the flagship phone fight is now mainly about the camera kits, let’s compare the sensor and lens sets on the top of the line Galaxy S24
against its predecessor the Galaxy S23 Ultra
, and against the breathtaking 2024 Oppo flagship newcomer, the Find X7 Ultra and its incredible zoom game.
|Galaxy S24 Ultra
|Galaxy S23 Ultra
|Oppo Find X7 Ultra
|200 MP, F/1.7, Super Quad Pixel autofocus, OIS, Super Clear Lens
|200 MP, F/1.7, Super Quad Pixel autofocus, OIS, Sensor size: 1/1.3″
|Sony LYT-900 1-inch sensor, f/1.8 aperture, OIS, 23mm optical focal length

|50 MP, F/3.4, 5x optical magnification, Quad Pixel autofocus, OIS
|10 MP (Telephoto)
Specifications: Optical zoom: 10.0x; Aperture size: F4.9; Focal Length: 230 mm; Sensor size: 1/3.52″
|50MP 6x periscope zoom with 1/2.51” Sony IMX858 sensor and 135mm equivalent lens, stabilized by Prism OIS, and with a nearest focus distance of 35cm,
|Zoom camera 2
|10 MP, F/2.4, 3x optical magnification, dual pixel autofocus, OIS
|10 MP (Telephoto, OIS)
Specifications: Optical zoom: 3.0x; Aperture size: F2.4; Focal Length: 69 mm; Sensor size: 1/3.52″
|50MP 3x periscope zoom camera features a 1/1.56” Sony IMX890 sensor, an f/2.6 aperture with Prism OIS, and a 65mm focal length.
|12 MP, F/2.2, dual pixel autofocus, 120° field of view
|12 MP (Ultra-wide)
Specifications: Aperture size: F2.2; Focal Length: 13 mm; Sensor size: 1/2.55″
|50MP Sony LYT-600 1/1.95” sensor with a 14mm equivalent focal length, a f/2.0 aperture and 4cm nearest focus distance.
As you can see, the Galaxy S24 Ultra camera specs are a step above the Galaxy S23 Ultra, what with the 50MP vs 10MP zoom camera that would being much cleaner night zoom shots. They, however, are way below what Oppo kitted its new Find X7 Ultra that goes on sale this Friday with. Oppo’s phone sports the world’s first dual periscope zoom set, and with large 50MP sensors at that, no matter if it is the 6x or 3x periscope lens.
Thus, we’d expect that the 2024 Oppo flagship would beat the Galaxy S24 Ultra in the zoom game yet again, as our Find X6 Pro review last year showed it does with the S23 Ultra. Furthermore, the record setting 1-inch Sony LYT-900 main camera sensor could also surpass the photon-gathering abilities of the higher resolution but smaller in size 200MP main camera sensor on the S24 Ultra, but we will be testing this in the following weeks and let you know how it goes.
Galaxy S24 price, colors, and processor specs in Europe
As for the rest of the specs, there are no real surprises in the new leak that we haven’t heard before. Recently, a rumor about the processor distribution made the rounds and it claimed that in Europe and the rest of the globe, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be clocked a bit lower, at a 3.3 GHz peak.
The current leak indeed indicates that the European Galaxy S24 Ultra version will get a 3.4 GHz 8 Gen 3 processor, so it remains to be seen what the US will get. The American models are much better appointed in terms of processor branding, though, as the specs listed here indicate that Europe would indeed get the Exynos 2400 chipset of Samsung for the cheaper members of the S24 family.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra
colors in Europe include Titanium Black, Titanium Gray, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Yellow (yep, the phone will be made of titainum like the iPhone 15 Pro Max
), while the S24+ and S24 colors will be Cobalt Violet, Amber Yellow, Onyx Black, Marble Gray, with Samsung store exclusives such as Jade Green, Sapphire Blue, Sandstone Orange, or a little bit for everybody.
As far as Galaxy S24 prices, they start from from 899 euros in the basic model, from 1149 euros for the 6.7″ S24+, and the whopping 1449 euros for the base 12GB/256GB S24 Ultra storage version. Compare this with the sub-$1000 price of the Oppo Find X7 Ultra and its camera prowess immediately becomes even more obvious. Well, at least the Galaxy S24 and S24+ will now come with modern LTPO displays that offer granular 1Hz-120Hz refresh rate at long last.
