The latest phones in Samsung’s lineup, the Galaxy S24 phones hit the scene in January. Already popular among Android fans, the S24 line includes a variety of upgraded features over its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 series. But those features, including new AI, brighter screens, bigger batteries and camera improvements, come at a cost. Luckily, there are a decent amount of trade-in offers for both locked and carrier phones. While there aren’t a ton of direct discounts, the trade-in offers are substantial, to the point where you could get one of the S24 models for free. There are also a handful of offers that drop the price without requiring a trade-in. 

This story is part of Samsung Event, CNET’s collection of news, tips and advice around Samsung’s most popular products.

Android fans have long appreciated the top-tier quality of Samsung phones. They’re consistently ranked among the best phones you can get. Most impressively, these phones are among some of the first to include generative AI capability directly on the device itself. That means you’ll be able to use generative AI services anywhere, even when the device is offline. The new phones are powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which means performance for on-device AI should be speedy.

It’s worth noting that the gen AI features that will be available on the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra will also be coming to previous-gen phones in the S23 series along with the Z series later this year. That means you may still be able to take advantage of that particular upgrade for a bit less, with expected Galaxy S23 deals set to roll out as the latest models hit shelves.

How much does the Galaxy S24 cost?

The three models of the Galaxy S24 are available in various storage configurations. US pricing for each model is as follows:

  • Samsung Galaxy S24 price: $800
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus price: $1,000
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra price: $1,300

That puts the Ultra at $100 more expensive than the S23 Ultra was at launch. However, it has a titanium frame this time around, which may account for the extra cost. 

In terms of configuration upgrades, the S24 remains the same as its predecessor with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage. The S24 Plus has 12GB of RAM, which is up from 8GB in the S23 Plus, and either 256GB or 512GB of storage. The Ultra is also sporting an upgraded 12GB of RAM and is available with 256GB, 512GB or 1TB of storage.
