Samsung launches the premium Galaxy S24 Ultra in the Philippines, joining the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. The Galaxy S24 Ultra boasts a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy chipset, a quad camera setup, and a titanium frame.

The new Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is different from the Galaxy S23 Ultra in terms of design. It has a flat display and sharp corners, giving a sleeker and more modern look. It’s also the first Galaxy phone to have a titanium frame, which is stronger and lighter than aluminum.
