Samsung Galaxy S24 tipped to get Instagram camera shortcut on lock screen

The Samsung Galaxy S24 series is speculated to launch globally soon. The lineup is likely to include a base Galaxy S24, a Galaxy S24 Plus, and a Galaxy S24 Ultra model. These phones are said to succeed the Galaxy S23 models that were unveiled earlier this year in February. Although the South Korean company is yet to officially confirm the launch date, its next-generation flagship Galaxy S series is likely to be launched at an Unpacked event in the US on January 17. Multiple reports and certification site listings have suggested several important details about the Galaxy S24 handset. The design renders of the phone have also been leaked. Now, a report suggests that a new lock screen widget for the popular photo sharing app Instagram may come with the alleged smartphone.

A user on X, Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a), shared A screenshot that suggested the Galaxy S24 would allow an Instagram camera shortcut on its lock screen. Once a Galaxy S24 user opens the Instagram application for the first time, as per the image, a pop-up dialog box will provide them with the option to turn on the Instagram camera shortcut on their handset.

Notably, the shortcut is not for the Instagram application in general, but specifically for the Instagram camera only. If this is true, it would be one of the few non-system apps to have a lock screen widget on Android smartphones. It is speculated that the Galaxy S24 phones will get this update with One UI 6.1 OS version, which is expected to be released with the upcoming flagship smartphone.

Leaked images of Galaxy S24 dummy units had already given us an idea of ​​what the phone might look like. The handsets appear to come with minor adjustments compared to previous Galaxy S23 models. The outer metal frames of the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra smartphones appear to have rounded edges instead of sharp edges. The edges of the phone also appear flat.

A recent Geekbench listing has revealed that the Galaxy S24 Ultra may launch with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with model number SM-S928N along with 12GB of RAM. On the other hand, the Korean version of the base Galaxy S24 model is likely to come with an in-house Exynos 2400 SoC along with 8GB of RAM. The Galaxy S24 models are said to come with Android 14-based One UI 6.0 skin.
