Meet This Telecom Giant’s New AI Smartphone

Samsung has a big AI announcement set for January 17.

In announcing a “new era” of AI, Samsung is reportedly rolling out a new AI-powered mobile phone at its Unpacked conference in San Jose, Cal. on January 17.

“A revolutionary mobile experience is coming,” said in a January 3 statement on its website. “Get ready to discover a new era full of possibilities with the latest Galaxy innovations, designed to transform how you live, connect, and create. The new Galaxy S series will set a higher standard for the most intelligent mobile experience yet.”

The new AI-engineered device is expected to be the lynchpin of the long-rumored Galaxy S24 series of smartphones.

The telecom company has largely been mum about the S24, save for a November, 2023 press release that indicated its new 2024 phone lineup will be an “AI Experience”.

“Galaxy AI is our most comprehensive intelligence offering to date, and it will change how we think about our phones forever,” Wonjoon Choi, head of research and development for Mobile eXperience Business, stated in the release.

While details are scarce on the new AI phone, Galaxy has recently indicated the device would include a new wrinkle called AI Live Translate Call will allow users of the “latest Galaxy AI phone” to leverage Galaxy AI to translate audio and text in real-time, according to CNET. The phones will also include a ChatGPT-like assistant embedded into the device, which would be a first-ever feature for mobile phones.

High Hopes and a Target In Sight

While Galaxy has largely kept the curtains closed until Unpacked later this month, the company seems to have high hopes for the new AI-powered phone.

“With the release of the Galaxy S24, we intend to shake up the global mobile market dominated by Apple and Google,” noted a senior Samsung executive.

Keep your eyes out for the January 17th announcement which is expected to feature the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Galaxy has said the phones should go on sale before January 30 and is offering a pre-order deal that includes a $50 credit toward a Galaxy S24 purchase, for pre-orders made by January 16.
