As the smallest of the Galaxy S range of phones, the base model is often overlooked. But when you look closely at the specs there’s often a lot that’s worth exploring. The Galaxy S24 has been released and there are plenty of points to look at.

Somewhat predictably, some of the specs are evolutionary from the previous years model. Things like teh 6.2-inch FHD+ screen, the dynamic 120Hz refresh, the camera array (12MP Ultra Wide, 50MP Wide, 10MP Telephoto and 12MP front camera) and the battery capacity (4,000mAh) remain.

Any Exynos 2400 is behind the scenes powering the device.

There are still only the two storage options offering 8GB of RAM with either 256GB or 512GB of storage. There will be some users who will want 1TB of storage, but there’s an argument for storing data in the cloud and accessing it as you need it.

It seems as though Samsung are still playing it safe with batteries and charging. The charging speed is 25W for the S24, and it is said to provide up to 50% charge in “around” 30 minutes. There is of course, Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 capability on the S24 devices if you’ve got charging pads around already.

You’ll enjoy the usual connectivity options that you can expect from a current era phone. 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 and USB-C connectivity for charging and data transfer.

The Galaxy S24 is available in a range of colours that includes Onyx Black, Marble Grey, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow. Exclusive colours to the Samsung online store include Sapphire Blue, Jade Green and Sandstone Orange.

You can pick up an S24 in any of the above listed colours for $1,399.00 for the 256GB version, or $1,599.00 for the 512GB option.
