Well, nearly 80% of Samsung’s Galaxy launch event was about how the Galaxy S24 smartphones are now more useful because of generative AI called Galaxy AI. It’s a partnership between Samsung and Google, and all fingers point towards Google’s Gemini Nano model. It’s the most powerful AI model from Google which is made for Android devices and works without any access to the internet. Samsung’s calling it Galaxy AI and with it, you can live-translate calls in different languages, transcribe text messages, summarise long paragraphs, edit images with generative AI and also slow down high-resolution videos by stacking AI frames in between. It’s a lot of new features.
You can also circle anything on your screen and the smarty pants AI will quickly search it. Restaurants? Zomato can take a backseat. That swanky outfit you saw someone wear on Instagram? Circle away and let the AI be your dedicated fashion detective. It’s all coming together neatly and some features are also added to Galaxy Notes to summarize and rearrange text more meaningfully.
You can read our full hands-on here with the Samsung Galaxy devices and if you want to know more about the AI features, here are the top 5. Besides AI, the insides are pretty much like last year with newer materials and upgraded bits. The 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display on the S24 Ultra is now flat with a rounded Titanium frame with Gorilla Glass Armor protecting the display. Oh, and only the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra gets the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, the S24 and S24 Plus have an Exynos 2400 for Galaxy. Behind you get a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a whopping 200MP main wide camera, a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom and another 10MP telephoto camera with a 3x optical zoom. Samsung says the OIS bracket is now bigger to allow more correction while zooming and taking photos and videos. The selfie snapper is a 12MP camera. The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra comes in three variants. The 12GB + 1TB, the 12 + 512GB and the 12 + 256GB. All with a 5,000 mAh and a bigger vapour cooling chamber than before.
