Samsung is reportedly taking its upcoming Galaxy S24 lineup seriously, with rumors suggesting that all three models will come with more RAM capacity than their predecessors, which will improve their multitasking performance.
According to leaker, the two non-Ultra versions of the Galaxy S24, i.e. the classic Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will offer 12 GB of RAM. This news is very interesting, since the previous Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus were limited to 8 GB of memory, which is not enough for some of the users in 2023.
On his side, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be offered in a massive 16GB RAM configuration, as is the case with the OnePlus 11 or the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Samsung had previously offered a 16GB RAM option with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but for cost reasons this option has been reduced to 12GB for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This limitation has not gone down well with consumers, and it looks like Samsung has taken notice.

Samsung will increase the RAM on its next flaships
Although we are happy with this development, we do not know at this time if the versions with 12 GB of RAM will be offered as a basic configuration or if customers will have to pay extra. It is likely that Samsung is trying to take advantage of these choices by incorporating only 8 GB of RAM in the base models.
On the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung may offer three tiers, namely 8 GB, 12 GB and 16 GB, each corresponding to one of the storage configurations. Anyway, this extra RAM is great news for those who want a slightly faster smartphone, especially when multitasking. The amount of RAM is important if you open many applications on your smartphone, and then saves you time by keeping them open in the background.
Samsung recently announced its LPDDR5X RAM chips, which offer higher bandwidth and consume up to 20% less power than the LPDDR5 standard. Using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with LPDDR5X RAM should result in a very efficient setup, and we can’t wait to hear more about the raw performance of the device. However, we already know that we can expect better gaming performance than the iPhone 15.
