Samsung Galaxy S24 price, release date, and preorder details: How to get the S24 Ultra, S24+, or the base model


UPDATE: Jan. 17, 2024, 2:15 p.m. EST This story has been updated with additional preorder listings from mobile carriers.

Samsung has kicked off the new year with an AI-fueled refresh of its Galaxy S series lineup, and you could have one of the new devices in hand before January takes its leave.

Announced at its Galaxy Unpacked event on Wednesday, Jan. 17, the all-new smartphones include the Samsung Galaxy S24, S24+, and the S24 Ultra starting from $799.99, $999.99, and $1,299.99, respectively. All three feature subtle but welcome improvements over last year’s Galaxy S23 series from a raw spec standpoint, like a newer Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor and brighter screens with thinner bezels. More notable, though, is their support for a new suite of Galaxy AI features that put them closely in line with Google’s Pixel 8 devices, including live translation, gesture-based search, and photo editing tools.

The new Galaxy S24 smartphones are now available for preorder before their formal launch on Wednesday, Jan. 31, and shoppers who reserve one ahead of time are eligible for a free storage upgrade. (For the first time, that includes the option to bump the Ultra model from 512GB to 1TB.) Select retailers and carriers are also throwing in free credits and gift cards with preorders; we’ve rounded up some of the best offers for deal hunters.

The new entry-level Galaxy S24 starts at $799.99 — same as last year’s Galaxy S23 — with 8GB of RAM and a storage capacity of 128GB or 256GB. You can preorder it from Amazon, AT&T, Best Buy, and T-Mobile in four different colors, including Onyx Black, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Amber Yellow. Three more limited-edition hues (Jade Green, Sapphire Blue, and Sandstone Orange) are available directly through Samsung itself.

The tech giant’s latest starter smartphone features a 6.2-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with a 1 to 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, making it just a tad larger than its 6.1-inch predecessor. It also comes equipped with a slightly longer-lasting (in theory) 4,000mAh battery. Its camera setup carries over the 10MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 50MP wide lens, and a 12MP selfie camera from the Galaxy S23.

The mid-range Galaxy S24+ comes in 256GB and 512GB storage capacities (both with 12GB of memory) starting at $999.99. It’s available in the same seven colors as the regular S24, including the three exclusives, and you can pre-order it from Amazon, AT&T, Best Buy, Samsung, or T-Mobile.

This one’s for anyone who wants more screen real estate and more time between charges: It’s largely the same as the base Galaxy S24, only with a bigger, higher-resolution 6.7-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x display and a beefier 4,900mAh battery.

Available in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage capacities with 12GB of RAM, the high-end Galaxy S24 Ultra starts at $1,299.99 (or $100 more than the Galaxy S23 Ultra). It has a titanium frame à la Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro models — a first for a Galaxy phone — which comes standard in Titanium Gray, Titanium Black, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Yellow colorways; Samsung’s website also has it exclusively in Titanium Green, Titanium Blue, and Titanium Orange. Elsewhere, it’s up for preorder at Amazon, AT&T, Best Buy, and T-Mobile.

Sporting a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x display made from durable Corning Gorilla Armor, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is the largest of Samsung’s three new smartphones and the only one that supports its S Pen stylus. It should also be the best at taking pictures: Samsung has bumped up its wide camera lens to 200MP and tacked on an extra 50MP telephoto lens. A 5,000 mAh battery rounds out its spec sheet.
