Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Promises You’ll Never Have To Learn Another Language Again

Despite all the weird and wonderful applications we’ve found for smartphones in our modern lives, at the end of the day, it’s always been about communication. And Samsung has found yet another way to change the game in this department with their forthcoming Galaxy S24 series.

Leveraging the rapidly evolving power of artificial intelligence (AI), the headlining feature of the S24 series is — without a shadow of a doubt — Live Translate. Essentially, it provides two-way, real-time voice + text translations of your phone calls all built into the native app. No third-party interference, no stored data.

At the time of this writing, Samsung’s AI is capable of translating 13 languages in real-time (certain language packs may require downloading).

“The Galaxy S24 series transforms our connection with the world and ignites the next decade of mobile innovation,” said TM Roh, Samsung’s President & Head of Mobile eXperience (MX) Business.

“Galaxy AI is built on our innovation heritage and deep understanding of how people use their phones. We’re excited to see how our users around the world empower their everyday lives with Galaxy AI to open up new possibilities.”

This innovation has also presented itself in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S24 series’ Interpreter function, allowing for live conversations to be instantly translated on a split-screen view so people standing opposite each other can read a text transcription of what’s being said. No cellular data or WiFi is required.

Of course, understanding the world with far fewer barriers is just the tip of the AI iceberg.

For messages and text-based exchanges in other apps, Chat Assist is available to help you achieve the perfect conversational tone — whether that’s phrasing something more politely to a coworker you cannot stand; playing it cool with something casual for that Tinder match; or even knocking something quick ‘n’ punchy up for a social media caption. 

The latest iterations of the Samsung Galaxies are also about summarising things for those of you who are either time-poor or simply short on attention span.

In Android Auto, it’ll give you the cliff notes for incoming messages and suggest relevant replies/actions, like sending someone your ETA. For voice recordings, Transcript Assist sums up and translates. Even when there’s more than one person yapping.

Organisation also gets an upgrade with Samsung Notes’ Note Assist: AI-generated summaries, template creation to streamline notes with pre-made formats, cover/preview creation… the works.

The other two major AI-powered additions are as follows:

  • Circle To Search
    A world first in the history of search: circle literally anything that appears on your screen and Google will determine what it is for you. You can also add further prompts to enhance search results, i.e. asking for a white version of the flowers you’re trying to identify.
  • ProVisual Engine
    A comprehensive suite of AI tools that not only make capturing images easier than ever, but also turn any video into a high-quality slow-motion clip, as well as Photoshop-level image editing, i.e. selecting a visual element and asking it to be enlarged/removed without hassle (watermark added to the image’s metadata for transparency reasons).

The Samsung Galaxy S24 model starts at $1,399 (256GB) and tops out at $1,599 (512GB); the S24+ ranges from $1,699 (256GB) to $1,899 (512GB); while the luxe S24 Ultra will set you back $2,699 (256GB)/$2,399 (512GB)/$2,799 (1TB). Colourways vary depending on which you opt for.

Pre-orders are now open with the official launch scheduled for February 7th, 2024.
