Samsung has dominated the headlines this week with the announcement of its latest flagship lineup, the Galaxy S24 series. Despite the rumors and leaks that may have spoiled some surprises, the Galaxy S24 Ultra stands out from the rest, featuring a new 5x camera, titanium frame, and Corning’s latest glass technology. It is, without a doubt, Samsung’s flagship for this year.
One of the key highlights of the announcement was the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into the new Galaxy devices. The use of AI brings a wide range of functionalities to the table. The Circle to Search feature, developed in collaboration with Google, allows users to obtain more information about any object or item on the screen by simply circling it with their finger. Transcript Assist automatically transcribes and summarizes voice notes, even providing translations. The Interpreter app enables seamless communication between individuals speaking different languages, while Live Translate offers in-app real-time translation.
The cameras on the Galaxy S24 Ultra introduce the ProVisual Engine, enhancing image quality during capture. AI technology is employed to move or remove objects, remove unwanted faces from a shot, and fill in empty spaces within the frame.
Samsung has also announced the Galaxy S24 and S24+ models. In certain markets such as South Korea, the United States, and China, these devices will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. The rest of the world will see the integration of Samsung’s new Exynos 2400 chipset. The Galaxy S24+ brings even more upgrades, including a slightly larger and significantly cleaner LTPO display and a 5% larger battery.
In a significant commitment, Samsung has pledged to provide software support for the Galaxy S24 series for a remarkable seven years.
