Samsung accelerates the global expansion of mobile AI by enabling users to experience Galaxy AI on previous models

LONDON, United Kingdom – February 22, 2024 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the availability of Galaxy AI[i] features on more Galaxy devices through a new One UI 6.1 update engineered to further the democratisation of mobile AI. The update will be available across the Galaxy S23 series, S23 FE, Z Fold5, Z Flip5 and Tab S9 series, starting to roll out from end of March. Aligning with the recently launched Galaxy S24 series[ii], this update elevates the standard of users’ mobile AI experience through a hybrid approach that combines on-device and cloud-based AI.


“In January of this year we announced a new era of mobile AI with the Samsung Galaxy S24 series incorporating Galaxy AI. The performance to date has been extremely positive. Across the UK & Ireland we have seen record demand with pre-orders of the S24 Series surpassing the total pre-order quantity for S23 in half the time,” said James Kitto Vice President and Head of MX Division, Samsung UK and Ireland, “thus proving a real appetite for our AI features. Our global mission is to make AI more accessible, and that’s why we’re proud to be announcing that Galaxy AI features will be made available across a range of Samsung mobile devices throughout 2024, and for us here in the UK that’s over 1.8 million customers who will receive a Galaxy AI update on their current Galaxy device.”


Communication that Transcends Barriers

Even more Galaxy users will now be able to take advantage of the communication-enhancing Galaxy AI features available on AI-supported models. The features include the ability to adjust message tone and translate messages in 13 different languages using Chat Assist[iii]. Galaxy users can experience the power of real-time interactions through Live Translate[iv], which provides voice and text translations for phone calls. With Interpreter, users can also engage in spontaneous conversations with locals while traveling as the split-screen feature generates text translations for live conversations.


Productivity Unparalleled

The broader integration of Galaxy AI across the Galaxy ecosystem also enables seamless user experience in day-to-day tasks on AI-supported models, driving new levels of efficiency. Search functions are improved through Circle to Search with Google[v], which generates intuitive search results with a swift circle-motioned gesture. Life-enhancing organisation features such as Note Assist[vi] allow users to create formats, generate summaries and translate notes, while Browsing Assist[vii] enables individuals to stay up to speed faster by generating comprehensive summaries of news articles. Transcript Assist can also easily transcribe meeting recordings and generate summaries and translations.



Unstoppable Creativity for Your Inner Artist

With Galaxy AI, Samsung is doubling down on its role in unlocking individuals’ creative potential. Galaxy’s latest update delivers a suite of Galaxy AI tools that encourages creative freedom even after a photo is taken. Through Generative Edit[viii], AI-supported devices can easily resize, reposition, or realign objects in photos to perfect a great shot. Users can also polish any photo faster and easier than ever with Edit Suggestion[ix]. No need for multiple re-shots as Instant Slow-mo[x] can generate additional frames for slow-motion videos to capture action-packed moments.


Creativity and personalisation do not stop there. Customizing Galaxy devices is even easier than before through AI-generated wallpapers, enabling AI-supported devices to bring users’ creativity to life.
