Leakster Ice Universe has some good news – the Samsung Galaxy S24+ will finally have an option with 12GB of RAM (the S23+ options begin and end at 8GB). However, The Cat has some bad news too – the vanilla Galaxy S24 is sticking to the 8GB, which has been the base capacity since the S20. As you may have heard, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will only use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chips with boosted prime CPU cores, while the S24 and S24+ will use the Snapdragon in some regions and Samsung’s own Exynos 2400 in others. We’ve already seen Geekbench runs from an S24 Ultra with 8GB of RAM and with 12GB of RAM,...

The S21 Ultra was the first of the Galaxy S series to use an LTPO display, this tech offers fine-grained control over the refresh rate and helps save battery. The the S21 and S21+ stuck with old school displays that only supported a couple of refresh rate options. That’s true of the S22/S22+ and even this year’s S23/23+. Things are finally about to change – Ice Universe just reported that both the Samsung Galaxy S24 and the S24+ will make the switch to LTPO.

Is Ice Universe is obsessed with bezel thickness? Yes, but we don’t mind – The Cat reports that the upcoming Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max will set a new record in that regard. The black border around the screen of the new flagship will measure only 1.55mm, way down from the 2.17mm of the current iPhone 14 Pro Max. The current record is held by the Xiaomi 13 with 1.81mm thickness. For comparison, the Galaxy 22 and S23 bezels are around 1.95mm. The glass panels of the iPhone 15 series were shown on video a couple of weeks ago. The person handling the panels reported that the bezels on the Pro...
