Samsung has confirmed its plans to use artificial intelligence in its upcoming smartphones, with the Galaxy S24 flagship widely expected to debut the new features. However, Samsung’s controversial decisions could cause problems in the coming months.
The South Korean company launched its productive AI model as part of it Samsung AI Forum 2023. Called Samsung Gaussafter Carl Friedrich GaussIt has three main components currently used internally: Gauss Language to understand human language and generate natural responses, Gauss Code helps software development for code descriptions and test case generation, and Gauss Image allows creation and modification images.
Update: Sunday November 12: After the public presentation of the Samsung Gauss, more potential uses of the company’s AI manufacturing capabilities on the upcoming Galaxy S24 have been revealed. Samsung reporter noted @Tech_Reve highlights the use of artificial intelligence not only to create an image of frequently used applications and tasks and to provide proactive results by simplifying complex tasks:
“Expected functions include analyzing the user’s destination and travel time to provide advance information about weather, traffic conditions and app functions. Additionally, if the user instructs an email to be sent, it is expected to automatically compose the email in the desired format and proceed with sending it.”
Samsung smartphones will collect a lot of personal data to achieve this. As user privacy becomes a critical factor in purchasing decisions, keeping this data on the handset and processing the information locally will be a priority – something that can only be possible thanks to the increased AI capabilities of the latest Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets.
Samsung also said that products featuring its artificial intelligence production models could be released early next year. One product line fits into that timeline and will have the hardware to process some AI on-device while offloading other routines to the cloud. the Samsung Galaxy S24 family.
Artificial intelligence is becoming the key feature of the current generation of smartphones. Google is promoting the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro as the first AI smartphones to start the avalanche with other smartphone manufacturers and vendors getting on board. Strangely, Apple is nowhere to be seen.
As one of the leading Android partners, Samsung’s advancement of artificial intelligence will continue to validate this space with designers, engineers and consumers. However, there are some questions specific to Samsung and its community that need to be addressed, such as the silicon itself
Samsung has committed to using a combination of its own Exynos 2400 chipsets alongside Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipsets in the S24 family. the flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra will be available exclusively with Qualcomm’s solution, while the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ models will be a combination of Exynos and Qualcomm—with each retail region reviving one or the other.
Both chipsets skewed reality the respective ones AI capabilities when they launched. Samsung will try to provide a similar experience on both the devices. However, with AI routines hard-coded into the silicon, many in the community will remember the different levels of performance and power offered by the two manufacturers – with the Qualcomm-powered Galaxy handsets widely seen as the better choice.
While this won’t affect Samsung’s new AI capabilities in the cloud, there will be an emphasis on artificial intelligence in the new Galaxy S24 handset. Samsung won’t want any deficit in capabilities between the Exynos and Snapdragon models. Otherwise, it will face the prospect of two layers of artificial intelligence in the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. Given the visibility of AI in the current market, the controversial decision to use two chipsets may be more prominent in 2024 than in previous years.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S24 family in early 2024, with many eyeing an earlier-than-expected event in January.
