Samsung’s next-generation flagship smartphone has cleared one more hurdle on its way to the official announcement. The Galaxy S24 Ultra has been certified by NBTC (National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission), which is Thailand’s testing and certification body for mobile phones and other telecommunication devices.
