The Galaxy S24 Ultra’s titanium frame has been previously rumored and is now confirmed by a new rumor originating in South Korea. According to unnamed sources, the S24 Ultra will be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature a titanium outer frame. If well-received, Samsung might consider extending this feature to other models.
This information aligns with previous rumors, although a rumor in early October suggested that the S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra would have titanium frames. Still, now it seems that only the Ultra variant will sport this premium material. Following in the footsteps of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, Samsung aims to enhance the durability and the premium feel of its flagship device.
Including the titanium frame suggests improved strength and resistance to wear and tear. Samsung’s decision to introduce titanium frames may depend on the response from consumers, and if successful, we can anticipate seeing this feature in future smartphone models as well.
According to the latest report, it has been revealed that the current titanium frames used by Samsung come at a cost of less than $20. Additionally, the report highlights that the success of integrating titanium frames on a larger scale will heavily depend on the yields.
To start, Samsung has set a target to produce 15 million titanium frames, equivalent to the number of Galaxy S23 Ultra units shipped this year.
According to the report, the upcoming S24 Ultra will feature a flat screen. The outer frame is expected to be made of titanium, while the inner frame will be aluminum.
