Display brightness is one of those things most people don’t necessarily think of when it comes to phones. A lot of people tend to focus on specs like the chipset, the cameras, battery, and so on, but display brightness is important because it can affect the legibility of a phone when under bright lighting.
If you’re planning on getting the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, a post on X by Ahmed Qwaider has revealed that the handset will apparently have a peak brightness of 2,600 nits. This is quite a huge improvement over its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which had a peak brightness of 1,750 nits.

Of course, this still pales in comparison to the OnePlus 12 whose display can go over 4,000 nits at its peak, but the upside is that Samsung gets to lord it over one of its chief rivals, Apple, whose iPhones max out at 2,000 nits. Of course, not everyone has the need to go to the max brightness, but at least having the option is a good thing, especially for users who find themselves outdoors quite a bit and might have trouble seeing their phone’s screen under direct sunlight.
The post only mentions the Galaxy S24 Ultra, but seeing as how the entire Galaxy S23 lineup shares the same brightness levels, it might be safe to assume the same will apply here as well. The Galaxy S24 series is expected to launch in early January 2024, so check back with us next month for all the details.
