When Apple introduced their iPhone 15s, only the Pro and Pro Max models (read more expensive) came with a frame made with a titanium alloy. We suppose that’s Apple’s way of differentiating its Pro and Pro Max models from the rest of the lineup.
Thankfully, it seems that Samsung could be a bit more generous with its upcoming Galaxy S24 series, where apparently all the models, which includes the base Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, will come with a titanium frame. This is according to a post on X by @Tech_Reve.
The Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra all have titanium frames.

That being said, we should point out that not everyone agrees with this rumor. A comment by reputable tipster Ice Universe claims that titanium will only be available on the Galaxy S24 Ultra model, but @Tech_Reve believes otherwise. Of course, since these are just rumors it’s probably best taken with a grain of salt.
Assuming the rumors are true, it could mean that we might be able to expect a price increase in the Galaxy S24 series since titanium is not only more expensive, but has also been known to be difficult to work with. Hopefully Samsung’s use of titanium will yield better results than Apple, where the titanium iPhone 15s have been found to be less durable than you might expect of a phone made using titanium.
