Along with the hardware specs, Samsung announced a number of new AI-powered features that will be included in the Galaxy S24 smartphones. One is Live Translate, which will offer two-way text and voice translations without the need to launch a third-party app.

Samsung added:

With Interpreter, live conversations can be instantly translated on a split-screen view so people standing opposite each other can read a text transcription of what the other person has said. It even works without cellular data or Wi-Fi.

The Samsung Notes app in the Galaxy S24 phones will include the AI-based Note Assist that will create summaries of notes and more. There’s also Transcript Assist which will automatically transcribe voice recordings, along with offering translations and summaries.

Samsung is teaming up with Google to add more AI features to the Galaxy S24 series, including Google’s Gemini Pro AI large language model: Samsung says:

Built from the ground up to be multimodal, Gemini can generalize and seamlessly understand, operate across, and combine different types of information including text, code, images, and video. Starting with Samsung-native applications, users can take advantage of the summarization feature across Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard.1 Gemini Pro on Vertex AI provides Samsung with critical Google Cloud features, including security, safety, privacy, and data compliance.

The phones will also be able to use Google’s on-device AI LLM, Gemini Nano, and owners will be able to test the upcoming Gemini Ultra LLM.

The unlocked Galaxy S24 is available for pre-order at Amazon starting at $799.99 and preorders can get an extra $50 Amazon gift card.
