Samsung Galaxy S24 Now Up For Pre-Order – Pricing and Details

The new AI-powered Samsung Galaxy S24 range is now available for pre-order. The range comes in the standard Galaxy S24, the larger Galaxy S24+ and the high-end Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The new Samsung Galaxy S24 range features some minor hardware improvements including improved camera optics. However, the big new features come in the form of AI tools across the devices. Owners can use AI generative tools to clean up images by removing reflections on glass, cutting out objects, stitching backgrounds together and much more.

The new Samsung Galaxy range is expected to launch in South Africa on 9 February. You can pre-order the phones starting today from R22,499 for the Galaxy S24, R25,999 for the Galaxy S24+ and R32,499 for the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Samsung isn’t offering any major pre-order incentives to customers this year. Usually, the company throws in some big discounts, earbuds and storage upgrades. However, that isn’t the case. The only pre-order offer lets customers get a Galaxy Tab S9 FE for R99 per month if they upgrade or get a new contract line at participating mobile operators.

Pre-order customers can also choose to purchase Samsung Care Plus at a reduced rate of R499. This exclusive offer includes one screen replacement within a year from the date of purchase, providing customers with peace of mind. You can pre-order your Galaxy S24 on the official Samsung site here.
