In recent years, Samsung has chosen to bring its Galaxy devices and foldable models forward, and plans to implement this strategy in 2024. According to a new report, the launch date could be a few weeks away. Samsung has confirmed the date and shared more information on when the Galaxy S24 series will be available for purchase and pre-order.
Samsung plans to launch this mobile in January 2024, which is a month before the South Korean company plans to launch a flagship smartphone. Here we bring you the latest information on Galaxy S24 release date and possible prices.
Galaxy S24 release date and possible prices
According to a report by The Elec citing a representative of Samsung Electronics, the Galaxy S24 series is said to debut at an Unwrapped event in San Jose on January 17. Interestingly, Samsung has chosen San Jose as the location for a product launch, which is the first time that the city is home to the headquarters of Apple and Google. The choice of this position can be interpreted as a strategy of close cooperation with Google and direct competition with Apple.
Although San Francisco (USA) and Seoul (South Korea) were considered as possible locations for the Galaxy S24 launch event, the final decision was San Jose. In the past, the company has held unwrapped events at the New York Galaxy, but for the next launch, it looks like it will take place in Apple’s “backyard.”
Regarding the chronology of the previous presentations, this year the Galaxy S23 wrap event took place on February 1, 2010, and the Galaxy S22 event took place on February 9, 2022, at which time the company is bringing the launch of the company. Galaxy S24 in 15 days.
This strategy of launching the Galaxy S24 two weeks earlier than its predecessor, the Galaxy S23, is aimed at boosting revenue in the first quarter of the year. Samsung seems to have established a pattern of peak sales in the first and third quarters of each year due to the launch of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z series phones.
