Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Gray

Samsung Galaxy S24 has begun network testing with three Korean carriers, probably skipping the satellite connectivity. With the launch approaching within 20 days, attention is focused on the design and key performance. These new Galaxy products seek to differentiate itself as an AI Phone equipped with generative AI.

FYI, the network interconnection test is the final procedure before sales, separate from institutional preparations such as electromagnetic compatibility certification. It’s a task to evaluate whether the new device is suitable for the local network and whether there are any functional problems.

Satellite Connectivity?

It looks like the satellite connectivity feature that allows emergency messages to be transmitted even in shaded areas will not be installed in the Samsung Galaxy S24. It’s a service that can send a rescue notification signal using L-band frequency band satellite in an emergency.

The company appears to have decided that there is no need to rush the introduction of the Galaxy S24 in terms of utility rather than technology. The feature provided by Apple has a one-way structure and only allows limited types of transmission.

An industry insider said, “I understand that Samsung Electronics is preparing to install a satellite communication function capable of two-way service in its next-generation model.”

Korean network testing

ETNews reports that Korea’s SK Telecom, KT, and LG U+ recently began testing the Galaxy S24 network connection. These carriers have received the Galaxy S24 Ultra from Samsung and are evaluating whether it operates properly in South Korean networks.

The smartphone used in the test was a finished product, but it was reported that it was provided in the form of a “box phone” shaped like a lunch box to prevent design leaks. Per the info, the Galaxy S24 series will be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in San Jose, USA on January 17.

Honor Magic V3

Samsung announced its most anticipated foldable phones on July 10 in Paris. Yesterday, Honor launched the new Magic V3, which challenges the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with a thinner design and some cool specs. The new Honor foldable is considerably thin compared to the phones available.

Honor’s new Magic V3 measures 9.2mm (camera bump not included) in its folded state. It goes further slimmer to 4.35mm when you unfold its 7.92-inch main screen. Oops, there’s a clearly visible hole for the camera on the inner display, with Galaxy Z Fold 6 featuring UDC for years.

The Chinese vendor managed to make its new foldable slimmer with an upgraded hinge of 2.84mm thickness. It won’t break before 500,000 folds while the frame is made from 7-series aluminum alloy. It’s the most highlighting spec that makes it superior to its Samsung counterpart.

Samsung reduced the weight of the Z Fold 6 to 239 grams but the Magic V3 weighs just 226 grams. Honor also brought IPX8 water resistance to the Magic V3, making it the first in the lineup to feature official protection against water insertion.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 packs a 4400mAh battery, but Honor’s Magic V3 has an edge here too. It boasts a 5150mAh silicon-carbon battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging. Both devices use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, offering robust performance and efficiency.

Honor Magic V3 comes with a 6.43-inch LTPO cover screen with FHD+ resolution. It’s also rated for 2,500 nits peak brightness and supports stylus input. Notably, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 also supports S Pen input but on the inner panel only with a special pen crafted by Samsung.

In terms of optics, the Magic V3 features a 50MP primary with OIS, a 50MP Periscope with 3.5x optical zoom, and a 40MP ultrawide camera. The cover and main screens also house 20MP front-facing cameras. It lacks under-display camera technology which arrived 3rd time on a Samsung Fold.
