Samsung Galaxy S24 Series: Advanced AI, superior cameras, expensive pricing

Samsung Electronics has just introduced its latest Galaxy S24 series, featuring the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24, all of which are set to change how we view smartphones thanks to “Galaxy AI”. The new series which still looks like the S23 Series, but with flat displays, and flat sides reminiscent of the iPhone design, will set the mood for smartphone launches throughout the year. A lot more companies will be launching things with AI, and finding ways to out-do the things Samsung is promising. Everyone else will also want to jump at longevity now that Samsung has followed Google’s 7-year update policy.

The new smartphones will be the most expensive S-series in Kenya to date. This is thanks to a lot of factors including the falling shilling, and increased taxes. It will be interesting to see how the devices perform in the market even as the company will be pushing trade-in and financing options.
