In a move set to redefine mobile technology, Samsung, Apple’s largest smartphone competitor, has announced a news conference in San Jose, California, on January 17, to unveil its latest Galaxy phones. With a 20% share of the global smartphone market, Samsung aims to outshine Apple’s 16%, and new features powered by AI could be the game-changer.
While the exact details of the AI features are yet to be revealed, recent developments from chipmakers like Qualcomm and competitors like Google shed light on potential advancements. Samsung traditionally uses Qualcomm chips, and the upcoming Galaxy S24 series might leverage Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Series 8 Gen 3 for Android phones, enabling on-device AI applications.
Qualcomm’s latest chips support generative artificial intelligence applications directly on the phone, facilitating smaller versions of applications like ChatGPT to run offline, enhancing privacy. The AI capabilities extend to generating images based on text, similar to Google’s Tensor G3 chip. Samsung’s move aligns with the industry trend of integrating AI to improve various aspects of user experience, including language and voice interaction and vision AI.
Samsung envisions a future where AI seamlessly integrates into daily lives, tackling challenges and advancing AI fundamentals. The Galaxy AI experience, combining on-device AI with cloud-based AI, promises to revolutionize mobile experiences with a focus on security, privacy, and openness.
The upcoming Galaxy AI is expected to introduce groundbreaking features, including an AI Live Translate Call, breaking language barriers with real-time audio and text translations during calls. As Samsung positions itself at the forefront of AI in mobile technology, the launch on January 17 is anticipated to usher in a new era of enhanced connection, productivity, and creativity.
