The Galaxy S24 Ultra brings new AI-powered software concepts like Circle to Search to Samsung’s flagship smartphone with a stylus. It’s in many ways a refinement of the design Samsung’s been building on since the introduction of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but with some important refinements, namely to the size, weight, cameras, and display of the smartphone. With a new titanium frame, flat front display, and overall more compact body, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is an immediately holdable and pocketable phone in a way past Ultras haven’t been. But even with all of those improvements, it’ll benefit immensely from a good case.

Do Galaxy S23 Ultra cases fit the S24 Ultra?
No, Galaxy S23 Ultra cases do not fit the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Despite having the same general boxy shape (all the better for storing an S Pen), the Galaxy S24 Ultra is smaller than its predecessor, and importantly, slimmer. That means that most Galaxy S23 Ultra cases aren’t likely to fit the S24 unless they have a good bit of stretch. Complicating matters further, the Galaxy S24 Ultra has a completely flat front display. Since most cases were designed around the gentle curve of the S23 Ultra, a new case for the S24 Ultra is going to require more space, since less of the display is compressed in that curve.
Does the new titanium frame mean the Galaxy S24 Ultra is more durable?
Yes and no. As we learned with Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro, titanium is noticeably lighter than aluminum, and far stronger at lower weights. It isn’t impervious, however. The Galaxy S24 Ultra isn’t made entirely from titanium, but it is more durable. Just not so durable that you should avoid using a case or screen protector entirely. Like most smartphone improvements, the difference here is incremental. You can just feel it in the different weight of the S24 Ultra in a way changing to say, Gorilla Glass Victus, wasn’t as easily observable.
