Over the last decade, Samsung has introduced its Galaxy S flagships in the first quarter of the year. A recent tip suggests that the Galaxy S24 series will arrive quite early – the Unpacked event is slated for January 18.
Samsung-related leaks come from Ice Universe, a leakster with a great track record.
In 2021, Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 lineup in January. To maintain consumer demand during the pandemic times, the company introduced a refreshed lineup.
In this case, the early launch will be due to a more pragmatic reason – Samsung and Qualcomm will be releasing their next-gen chipsets earlier, and they will have final products ready by the time Galaxy S24 arrives.
