Galaxy S24 Ultra Claims Best-Selling Smartphone Title (Q1 2024)

Published

on


Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is one of the most successful devices of the year, whether in terms of its pre-booking or in terms of its unit sales. The device has performed better than its predecessor. The reason behind it lies not only in the hardware perspective but also in the software, which has brought the new Galaxy AI features to new hype among consumers.

According to counterpoint research, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is listed among the top ten best smartphones, where it is the best Android device. Going into details, the Galaxy S24 ranks in fifth place immediately after Apple’s latest smartphones. The iPhone 15 Pro Max ranked first with 4.4% market share, the iPhone 15 ranked second with 4.3% market share, the iPhone Pro ranked third with 3.7% market share, and the iPhone 14 ranked fourth with 1.9% share of sales. Then, in the fifth position, the Galaxy S24 Ultra comes in with 1.9% of sales.

At first sight, it looks like Apple is significantly ahead of Samsung in terms of sales, but if you go in detail, Samsung not only provides smartphones in the high-end category but also makes several smartphones according to their affordability for a larger consumer base. Let’s explore the data about some non- flagship devices as well.

Non-flagship devices also secure a position in the top 10

Apart from the Galaxy S24 ultra device, there are other affordable devices from Samsung that also top the top ten list of sales. The Galaxy A15 5G secures the 6th position, the Galaxy A54 is in the 7th position, and the Galaxy A34 appears in the 10th position. The list ultimately depicts the dominance of Samsung and the iPhone in the global smartphone markets. However, Samsung has scope to capture the market for Android devices.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 keeps AMOLED cover display

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Cover

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is on its way to make its debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The note-worthy fact is that the giant is not downgrading the cover display of the phone, as it will feature an AMOLED panel on the inside as well as the outside.

A couple of days ago, even before the official launch, a few images of the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 leaked online. The leaked image suggests that the Korean giant is looking forward to attaching an AMOLED panel to the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 device. 

However, it appears that the Samsung employee who created that leaked spec sheet made a typo. The report says that the cover screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be similar to that of its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5. It will feature a 3.4-inch diagonal, the same folder-like shape, and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. 

Samsung has yet to announce the official specs and features of the phone, but following leaks and rumors, it’s expected that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. The memory package could include 8GB and 12GB of RAM variants. It will feature a 50MP primary rear camera and a 4,000 mAh battery. 

It will run Android 14 and One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. The Korean giant has added some new Galaxy AI features that could arrive on existing devices through a software update. Along with the Galaxy Z Flip 6, the brand will also launch its sibling, the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Potentially, both could be eligible for seven years of OS and security patches.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim could feature a bigger display than the standard model

Samsung is aggressively ready to launch its next-gen Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Flip 6 next week at the launch event. Apart from these two, the brand is also gearing up to launch the slimmer variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, which could be on the floor as soon as Q4 2024. 

The new report from The Elec says that the production schedule for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 slim model has been finalized. If the report is to be believed, the brand could introduce the device as soon as Q4 2024, and 400,000 to 500,000 units will be shipped by the end of this year. However, the brand will make the slimmer variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 6 available only in selected markets. 

The Korean website also suggested that the forthcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 slim variant will feature a larger cover screen and folding display. In light of this fact, it’s expected that it could feature a 6.5-inch smartphone display and an 8-inch folding screen. Whereas the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6 model is supposed to feature a 6.2 or 6.3-inch outer and a 7.6-inch folding screen. 

On the comparison side, Honor Magic V2 features a 7.29-inch folding and 6.43-inch outer screen, and Vivo X Fold 3 Pro has an 8.3-inch folding screen and a 6.53-inch outer screen. So the slimmer Galaxy Z Fold 6 would offer similarly large screens.

Reportedly, a few years back, Samsung had previously developed a Z Fold device with an 8-inch folding screen, but unfortunately, due to the foldable’s thickness, it was never seen on the market. Noticeably, the new variant will lack S Pen support, but it’ll be thinner as compared to the actual Z Fold 6. It was also noted that some unnamed components will have ‘higher specifications’ than the standards in Z Fold 6.

Samsung is just a week away from the official launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. Ahead of the official debut, leaks and rumors are continuously blowing in the market. Now the new leak says that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 makes smart use of the cover screen for language translation. 

The Galaxy Z Flip 6 will run Android 14-based One UI 6.1.1 out of the box. This software version will bring dozens of new AI-powered tools, including a new feature that uses the cover screen intelligently during language translation. A tipster on X shared marketing images of the Galaxy Z Flip 6. It has been revealed that Samsung has upgraded the interpreter mode for foldable phones. 

Galaxy Z Flip 6 Smart Translation

The images showcase that translated text is also visible on the cover screen to make it easier to see for the person conversing with the phone’s user. On the other side, a similar feature is also expected to arrive for the Galaxy Z Fold 6. Although Google has already introduced a similar feature for the Pixel Fold, now Samsung is looking forward to the feature. 

This feature will be beneficial in scenarios like international business meetings where you do not understand your colleague’s language. This feature will only work in Flex Mode, which means you have to fold the Galaxy Z Flip 6’s screen halfway to activate the cover screen. The latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 already has the Interpreter Mode, so it’s quite possible that the brand could expand this feature to the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
