There are a few weeks remaining for the Galaxy S24 series to go official, which only means that a barrage of leaks surrounding their specifications and features will sprout on various online platforms. The latest one was spotted on X, where one tipster shares the storage, RAM, and color configurations of each model, though we have to say that these specifications are somewhat disappointing, especially given what Samsung’s competition is up to.
New leak also shows that Samsung has limited its Galaxy S24 lineup to 12GB RAM, whereas the competition is launching flagships with twice the memory
As the majority of you know, Samsung intends to launch the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra in January, so it should not be surprising that a wide range of models sporting different RAM counts, storage, and finishes have been posted by Revegnus. From what we can gather, the Korean giant will add a ‘Yellow’ and ‘Violet’ finish this year, which should make for an interesting lineup, especially when such flashy colors go well with the company’s younger customer base, as it allows them to set up a different layer of personalization, such as matching their clothes, or other products.
We also noticed that the base model will remain limited to 8GB RAM, but the Galaxy S24 Plus has been upgraded to 12GB RAM, just like the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Sadly, once more, Samsung’s top-end model will be limited to the same RAM count as last year, and while it is understandable that the company wishes to maintain its margins as it continues to procure expensive SoCs like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, it should not be at the cost of hardware upgrades. Samsung’s competitors, such as OnePlus and Xiaomi, are incorporating up to 24GB RAM in their high-end smartphones, and once they start optimizing their UI, it will cause real problems for Samsung.

An earlier rumor also mentioned that Samsung’s Galaxy S24 family would be limited to 12GB RAM but did not discuss the maximum supported storage. On this occasion, we have learned that Samsung will add 1TB of internal memory, but no word if that memory can be expanded through a microSD card. It also looks as if the most premium member of the company’s flagship lineup, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, will have that 1TB storage option, forcing customers to spend some extra savings to get their hands on the latest and greatest flagship next year.
Apart from Samsung’s stingy strategy of holding its devices back with 12GB RAM, everything else feels standard about these handsets, but if there is anything extra that we have not learned about as yet, we will before or during ‘Galaxy Unpacked,’ so stay tuned.
