The curtain lifted on a new era of connection, creativity, and collaboration at Galaxy Unpacked in sunny San Jose. Samsung Electronics took center stage on January 17, unveiling the Galaxy AI S24 series, a game-changer in the realm of mobile AI that’s set to redefine our relationship with the digital world.
A visionary introduction
TM Roh, the maestro behind Samsung’s Mobile Experience (MX) business, set the tone in his keynote. He didn’t just present a smartphone; he unveiled a promise. The Galaxy S24 series, he declared, is not just a phone; it’s a portal to a future where barriers dissolve and our potential knows no bounds.
“Galaxy S24 is truly the phone of the future,” Roh exclaimed. “Together with Samsung Galaxy AI, we will reshape the technology landscape. We are opening a new chapter without barriers to unleashing your potential.”
Connecting seamlessly with Galaxy AI
Let’s talk about the heart of it all—connection. Drew Blackard, the VP of Mobile Product Management at Samsung Electronics America, took the stage to showcase the Galaxy S24 series’ innovative AI features that enhance user experiences.
Breaking down language barriers
Live Translate stole the show, offering real-time, two-way call translations for up to 13 languages within the native call app. Imagine having a personal interpreter in your pocket, helping you navigate foreign lands or order food effortlessly. And the best part? It’s all happening on your device; there are no external clouds involved, ensuring top-notch security.
But that’s not all. Transcript Assist lets you create and share summaries of recorded conversations, while Note Assist keeps you organized during those never-ending meetings. And for drivers, the new Android Auto feature ensures a safe and connected journey on the road.
Search Redefined: Google and the Galaxy S24 Series
Samsung’s history of pushing boundaries through partnerships continues with Google joining forces for the mobile AI era. Cathy Edwards, VP of Google Search, unveiled Circle to Search, a game-changing feature allowing users to search intuitively with a simple gesture, no app-switching required.
Prioritizing Security in Search
The collaboration with Google isn’t just about innovation; it’s about securing user information. The Galaxy S24 series ensures transparency and control, letting users decide the extent of online processing and AI functionality under Advanced Intelligence settings.
Unleashing Creativity: The Power of AI in Content Creation
Tara Rael, Product Specialist at Samsung Electronics America, wows the audience with the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s AI-driven ProVisual Engine. The camera features are not just tools; they’re a creative playground.
Immersive camera experiences
From Nightography Zoom capturing a concert like you’re in the front row to Instant Slow-mo turning any video into a masterpiece, the Galaxy S24 series makes pro-quality content creation accessible to all. Quick Share, in partnership with Google, enables seamless file sharing across Android devices and Windows PCs.
Gaming Nirvana: Power and Performance
For gaming enthusiasts, the Galaxy S24 series packs a punch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform and Samsung’s Exynos 2400. AI ensures optimal performance, and the Ray Tracing module promises a more immersive gaming experience.
Sustainability meets innovation.
Samsung doesn’t just stop at technology; it envisions a sustainable future. The Galaxy S24 Ultra boasts a battery with 50% recycled cobalt, recycled rare earth elements in the speaker magnets, and eco-friendly packaging. The commitment to sustainability extends to Samsung’s goal of incorporating recycled materials in every module of its mobile products by 2030.
