The Samsung Galaxy S24 series launch is just a few weeks away, and this is set to end a year's worth of rumours and leaks. According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will likely occur in mid-January. Continuing the trend, three models are expected - Samsung Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24 Plus, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, and the latter will again compete with the likes of iPhone 15 Pro Max to earn the position of the best smartphone of the year. While leaks have previously hinted that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra could feature satellite connectivity, which the iPhone 15 Pro Max does, it isn't likely to be the case for Samsung, according to a new report.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra: No satellite connectivity?

According to a report by ETNews, the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will likely come too soon, and consequently, it won't feature satellite connectivity. This is one feature that has been rumoured to come to the Galaxy S series since last year, but evidently, the Galaxy S23 Ultra did not feature it. It was expected that the feature would arrive next year with the Galaxy S24 Ultra, but the chances are reportedly slim.

For the unaware, satellite connectivity on the Galaxy S24 Ultra was expected to function like Emergency SOS via satellite. It could potentially allow users to contact emergency services in case of dire situations, especially when there's no network connectivity.

As per the report, the flagship phone can be available in four different colors — Titanium Black, Titanium Gray, Titanium Violet, and Titanium Yellow.
