On the back is a triple camera array with a design that resembles the Galaxy S23.

The expected colors are Amber Yellow, Marble Gray, Cobalt Violet, and Onyx Black.

According to Android Headlines, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will feature similar color variants, although the precise marketing names are still unclear. As for the design, the device appears identical to the Galaxy S23 Ultra regarding cameras and their alignments.

All three models will ship with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The premium Galaxy S24 Ultra model would likely opt for a 200MP sensor, per earlier reports. A recent leak from prolific tipster Ice Universe gives additional details about the Ultra's camera capabilities. The 200MP is believed to feature AI to further optimize image quality and would be able to detect at least 12 objects in the frame.

Meanwhile, tipster Evan Blass has managed to get the Korean launch date for the Galaxy S24, which is apparently set for January 18 at 3 am KST, which translates to January 17 at 1 pm EST, assuming a global launch. This corroborates previous rumors of the Galaxy S24 launch date.

The GIF posted to X includes a countdown and a Galaxy AI animation, which hints at Samsung potentially utilizing Bard, given the presence of similar-looking sparkle icons.
