The controversy over the RAM capacity of the Galaxy S series

The controversy over the RAM capacity of the Galaxy S series is as follows:

  • The Galaxy S24+ has 12GB of RAM, but the other models maintain the same RAM capacity as before.
  • This has been criticized for maintaining a low RAM capacity, which is an important factor in providing sufficient performance for AI functions and 7 years of software updates.
  • Especially, Samsung Galaxy’s One UI requires a high RAM resident amount, so the Galaxy S series should have a RAM capacity equal to or larger than other companies, but in reality, it is smaller.

The controversy over Wi-Fi 7 support is as follows:

The controversy over the introduction of AP differentiation is as follows:

  • The S24 and S24+ use the Exynos 2400, and the S24 Ultra uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, making the Galaxy S series the first to introduce AP differentiation between ultra and non-ultra models.
  • This has created a difference in the composition of key product components between ultra models and non-ultra models.

Finally, the controversy over the use of the GN3 image sensor is as follows:

  • The ISOCELL S5KGN3 sensor, which was at the center of the controversy over the basic wide-angle camera performance of the non-ultra models of the Galaxy S22 and S23 series and the Fold4/5, has been reused for 3 years in a row, continuing the controversy.

In response to these controversies, Samsung Electronics claimed that it was not a cost reduction and that memory is not important in numbers. However, considering that all models of the Galaxy S20 series originally had 12GB of RAM, reducing the RAM capacity can be interpreted as the person admitting that they reduced the cost. <
