The good news is that Samsung's upcoming S24 smartphones are expected to be getting a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and up to 2TB of storage. The bad news is that you will likely need to fork over cash for the top-of-the-line Ultra model to get them.

Samsung's announcement that the Galaxy S23 flagships sold globally would be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 chipsets was widely met with praise. Before that, the S-series was often split between Exynos and Snapdragon versions, usually on a regional basis, but the Samsung-designed SoCs never quite matched the performance or efficiency of their Qualcomm counterparts.
It looks like Samsung is intending to return to its two-chipset strategy, however. One rumor has suggested that the S24 Ultra will have Snapdragons under the hood globally, with other models less certain. Others are saying that European Ultras will have an Exynos 2400. That said, Samsung is promising great things with the 10-core Exynos 2400, so it might not be that huge of a concession. As with all things, only time will tell.

According to another tweet by Revegnus, the S24 Ultra will come in multiple storage options, ranging from 128GB all the way up to a monstrous 2TB. We question the value proposition of a 128GB model, since flagship cameras need tons of media storage and 128 gigs seems so... 2021. Even the S23 Ultra starts out at 256GB. 

Apple's iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are also likely coming in 2TB flavors. So, while the 2TB version is a rather intentional decision, it's not hard to imagine how much these maxed out 2TB storage and 12GB RAM models will cost. For reference, the 1TB S23 Ultra retails for $1,620, which is a $400 bump over the 512GB variant. 

The Galaxy S24 series is expected to be officially announced sometime between late January or early February 2024, and then hit the market a few weeks after that.
