Galaxy AI: Samsung reveals exciting AI feature for the Galaxy S24
Samsung has issued a press release with an initial preview of "Galaxy AI", Samsung's new branding for features based on artificial intelligence running on Galaxy smartphones. Galaxy AI will be released at the beginning of next year - a timing that is hardly a coincidence, as this means that Galaxy AI will be launched practically at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S24, which is to be unveiled together with the Plus and Ultra models in mid-January.
Galaxy AI combines functions that are processed on the smartphone's SoC's NPU with features that are implemented in the cloud to enable the integration of third-party services. These AI functions are designed to "transform" the smartphone user experience, while giving users peace of mind about their privacy and the security of their smartphone, according to Samsung. To provide a sneak peek of the new capabilities that Galaxy AI enables, Samsung has announced the "AI Live Translate Call" feature.
This will allow Galaxy smartphones to translate calls in real time, making it possible to talk to others smoothly without having to speak the language of the person you're talking to. This feature will be integrated directly into the phone app so that users don't need to use a third-party app.
Translations are not only provided via audio; the course of the conversation is also shown in the user's own language on their display in the form of a chat log so that it is easy to see who said what. As all of this is processed directly on the Galaxy smartphone instead of being uploaded to the cloud, this feature should not compromise privacy.
