Galaxy S24 Ultra could offer 2600 nits brightness and 5x zoom for 8k Video

Published

The Galaxy S24 Ultra, which is about to release on January 17, 2024, along with the Galaxy S24 and S24+ models, is increasing the hype every single day. Now we have our hands on the new features that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be getting.

Those who follow up on the tech updates will know that earlier it was stated that the Galaxy S24 series as a whole will be getting 2,500 nits as the peak brightness. But it seems there is an enhancement here; a recent rumor from tipster Ahmed Qwaider claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s dynamic AMOLED 2x screen may feature a peak brightness of 2,600 nits.

Will the S24 series become the brightest phones ever?

It appears that the peak brightness will exceed the earlier reported value by 100 nits. The thing is that the Galaxy S24 and S24+ will also receive the same peak brightness. If this happens, then the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be the brightest phone, and for sure, it will surpass the iPhone 15 Pro and Google Pixel 8 Pro, which have 2,000 and 2,400 peak brightness, respectively. However, it is important to note that this figure may only be reached during specific HDR scenarios for a short duration of time.

Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra camera specs revealed

Because it uses a logarithmic scale, 100 nits does not correspond to double the perceived brightness of 200 nits. Likewise, a screen brightness of 2,000 nits does not appear twice as bright as one that is 1,000 nits. Other than this, there is also another feature that is tipped to accompany the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Is 5x zoom coming to the Galaxy S24 Ultra?

The same tipster, Ahmed Qwaider, claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have four cameras: a 200 MP primary camera, a 12 MP ultrawide camera, a 10 MP telephoto camera, and a 50 MP telephoto camera. It is said that the gadget will have 5x zoom capability for the purpose of capturing 8K footage. The S24 Ultra has updated the 50 MP telephoto camera, resulting in larger pixels and a greater resolution for better light gathering.

It will include an optical zoom lens that is five times more powerful, providing greater reach during the capture of 8K films. Further, the phone has better stabilization in both bright and dim light. Its AI Object Aware Engine is said to function with both front- and rear-facing cameras, and it needs to include enjoyable imaging characteristics like portrait effects. Ahmed also put forward that Samsung and Meta have teamed up to provide better image and video quality when uploading photos to Facebook and Instagram.

Samsung Galaxy S25’s advanced AI novelties could boost its price

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brightness & Adaptive Color Tone

Samsung started working on the Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to be launched early next year. This forthcoming device is expected to be priced higher as compared to its predecessor. 

Samsung will expand its high-end S series by introducing a next-gen smartphone series named the Galaxy S25. It’s too early to discuss the Galaxy S25, but leaks and rumors are doing their jobs by offering more details about the upcoming Galaxy S25. This upcoming device is expected to cost more than the current S-series devices. 

The reason behind this report appears to be that a Galaxy S25 will be more expensive than a Galaxy S24 due to its higher manufacturing costs. The US chip designer Qualcomm could push the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 into production in the second half of the year. This latest chipset is expected to boost AI processing. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be a truly advanced chip, but its high-end tech advancements might lead to higher costs, which could translate into a price hike for the upcoming Galaxy S25. The report suggested that, according to a recent prediction from industry watcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm might increase the cost of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 by 25–30% compared to the Gen 3 solution. 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be manufactured on the 3nm N3E process by TSMC; it’s the same technique used to build Apple’s A18 Pro chip. This shift will supposedly cause the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to be 25–30% more expensive than its predecessor. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 costs around $190–$200; by this metric, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might cost $260. 

However, Samsung could deal with the higher expenses of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the Galaxy S25 by absorbing the cost or reducing the quality in other areas, such as the battery or display, but this could be risky, such as switching to its in-house Exynos 2500 chip. The upcoming chipset will be fabricated from TSMC’s most advanced process and should bring performance gains to the CPU, GPU, and NPU (AI processing).
