We’ve already seen Google’s “Live Translate” working its magic on phones calls, but to date, this feature is still exclusive to Pixel devices. If you happen to be a Samsung fan, though, chances are you may get to use a similar feature — without having to install third-party apps — early next year.
According to the Korean giant, its next phone — our money’s on the “Galaxy S24” family — will come with “Galaxy AI,” which is “powered by both on-device AI developed at Samsung and cloud-based AI” from providers. Part of this package will include “AI Live Translate Call,” which will show real-time translations in the form of a chat log during phone calls — as is the case in the demo screenshot showcasing a dialog between a New York-based English speaker and a Seoul-based Korean speaker. As a bonus, the tool throws up an “add event” button whenever there’s a mention of a time and a date, to let you instantly mark the calendar for your foreign acquaintance.
There’s not much else here about Galaxy AI, except that “it will change how we think about our phones forever,” said Wonjoon Choi, EVP and Head of R&D, Mobile eXperience Business. There’s no word on whether Galaxy AI will also include Samsung’s Gauss generative AI capability, but given the exec’s wording and the recent similar offerings from Google, we wouldn’t be surprised if we’re getting the whole shebang in the Galaxy S24 lineup next year.
