Full Story

Samsung’s Unpacked events are like clockwork, dropping into the tech world at roughly the same time every year. The Galaxy Unpacked 2024 event, eagerly awaited by many, is set for the first month of the year. Recent leaks have confirmed it’s happening on January 18.

A pre-holiday surprise came from Evan Blass, a known leaker. He shared a GIF that looked pretty official, a countdown timer to Galaxy Unpacked 2024. The leak suggests it came straight from Samsung’s HQ.

The GIF let slip that Samsung’s gearing up for Galaxy Unpacked on January 18 at 3 AM KST. But remember, time zones mean this translates to a January 17 launch in the US. This lines up with Samsung’s expected live event in San Jose, California.

The image drops a tasty tidbit: “Galaxy AI is coming.” This likely points to an on-device AI assistant for the Galaxy S24 series. Samsung recently rolled out its own generative AI model, Gauss. But the AI fun doesn’t stop there.

Leaks suggest that One UI 6.1, debuting with the Galaxy S24 series, will be chock-full of new AI features. We’re talking creating Pixel 8’s AI wallpapers on Galaxy phones. Or choosing your writing tone while using the keyboard. And there’s more.

Rumor has it, the Galaxy S24 series might bring an on-device phone call live translation feature. Talk about a big leap into the AI realm for Samsung!

Don’t expect a major design overhaul for the Galaxy S24 series, though. Some subtle tweaks are likely to shake up the visual and ergonomic aspects. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, set to rule the roost, might run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the US and China. In other markets, it could be the Exynos 2400.

There’s chatter about ditching the 10x telephoto camera for a higher-res camera with 5x zoom. And for those camera buffs out there, it seems Samsung might finally tackle image processing issues with the Galaxy S24 line.

With the Galaxy Unpacked 2024 date out in the open, an official announcement from Samsung is surely on its way. So, stay tuned, folks!
