The new flagship Samsung Galaxy S Series is here with a mobile-first on-device generative AI (GenAI). The trio of devices will go on sale in February from Vodacom, but you may find it difficult to choose a device. So, let’s break down the shiny new software and hardware options.
The new on-device GenAI features will be available on the Galaxy S24, S24+ and S24 Ultra. It includes Live Translate, Chat Assist, Circle to Search with Google, Transcript Assist and a range of photo editing features.
LIVE Translate is arguably the most interesting generative AI feature that lets users call any phone, including a landline, and it will translate the call in real time, supported by 13 languages at launch. This is ideal for travellers or anyone doing business across the world. New ways to connect, new ways to create.
Similarly, the Interpreter app will let you have a face-to-face conversation while the app translates what is being said in real time. The built-in GenAI features also work for audio recordings, text messages and the notes app.
It will summarise meeting minutes, list highlights in bullet points, and can translate them to 13 languages. It works natively on the Samsung browser for any long articles you want to read but don’t have time.
Another feature coming to select Androids is Circle to Search with Google. You long-press the home button to search for anything on your screen. It works across apps like social media, your browser or email, etc. It beats taking a screenshot and doing a reverse Google image search.
On the camera front, The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series has a ProVisual engine, which enhances details, removes reflections from images and changes the direction of an object once you select it. Here's to capturing more awesome photos!
