If you’re looking to get the best and most powerful flagship phone of 2024, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra could be it. This is according to benchmarks which has revealed that the Galaxy S24 Ultra could be running an overclocked version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
Based on the benchmarks, the Galaxy S24 Ultra was clocked at 3.4GHz. For context, the official speeds offered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is 3.3GHz, meaning that Samsung will be using a slightly faster variant.
This seems to be a similar strategy that Samsung used this year with its Galaxy S23 Ultra where they had an exclusive deal with Qualcomm to supply them with an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The deal isn’t permanently exclusive as Qualcomm later made it available to other handset makers, but at least for a period in time, the Galaxy S23 Ultra was the fastest phone available in the market.
That being said, CPU clock speed is only one aspect of a phone. There are other factors to consider when choosing a handset, like battery life, charging speed, cameras, size and weight, display, and so on. But if you’re after the best possible performance, the Galaxy S24 Ultra could be it.
