At the AI Semiconductor Forum, Samsung appears to have officially confirmed the development of Google's second generation Gemini Nano and provided early insights into its Galaxy S25 plans, according to a report.

Google's Gemini Nano is the AI model that Samsung uses for some on-device AI features on the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra; it was recently retrofitted on many 2023 Galaxy flagships via the One UI 6.1 update and minor aspects of Galaxy AI will also be added to certain smartphones from 2022 and 2021 soon. Now, Samsung appears to have commented on its Galaxy AI plans for the future.

At least according to a report (via SamMobile) from South Korean website Daum Herald Economy. The report states that Executive Director Cho Cheol-min, responsible for System LSI at Samsung Electronics, is said to have commented on Google's Gemini Nano 2 plans and the Galaxy S25 generation at the Artificial Intelligence Semiconductor Forum, which is somewhat unusual, especially since even Google has not yet disclosed any information about the successor to Gemini Nano.

In this context, Samsung is reportedly currently planning another cooperation with Google for the Galaxy flagships of 2025, and there is supposedly a meeting with the search engine manufacturer next week to this end. The Large Language Model (LLM) Gemini Nano 2 will be delivered with the Galaxy S25 flagships, but the improvements it will bring have not been revealed. It also remains unclear whether the next Galaxy AI features will be free apart from the purchase price of the smartphone itself. In February, the Samsung Mobile Experience CEO indicated that additional or further developed AI features may one day be subject to surcharges.
