Galaxy S24 Ultra Fails to Lose Weight Despite Titanium Use

Samsung‘s Galaxy S24 Ultra is a game-changer. It’s the first smartphone from the tech giant to feature a titanium frame. Sounds fancy, right? Well, it’s a feature that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max also boast. But here’s the kicker – unlike the iPhones, the Galaxy S24 Ultra isn’t any lighter because of its titanium frame.

Now, you might be thinking, “Titanium is supposed to be light, right?” Well, yes and no. The Galaxy S24 Ultra weighs in at 232 grams. Its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, tips the scales at 234 grams. That’s a difference of just 2 grams. Hardly noticeable, really.

In comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max weigh 187 grams and 221 grams respectively. Their predecessors? They weighed 206 grams and 240 grams. Now that’s a significant difference!

But wait, there’s more. The battery capacity in the Galaxy S24 Ultra is the same as its predecessor. So, what gives? Well, it’s all about the frame. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max used stainless steel instead of aluminum. The Galaxy S23 Ultra? It used aluminum, and a lighter version at that.

So, the switch from lightweight aluminum to titanium isn’t as dramatic as some might think. But a jump from stainless steel to titanium? Now that’s a different story. Hopefully, this clears up any confusion about the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s weight.

In other news, Samsung announced its new flagship smartphone series just a few days ago. The lineup includes three smartphones, one of which is the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The other two, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+, stuck with the aluminum build. They’re pretty similar to their predecessors in terms of weight.

All three phones are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy in the US. But in Europe, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ come with the Exynos 2400 instead.

Each phone has a matte glass finish on the back and has undergone slight design changes. The Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ have completely flat frames, thinner bezels, and slightly larger displays. The Galaxy S24 Ultra? It now has a flat display, and its top and bottom sides are completely flat.
