Samsung Galaxy S22 Could Get Some Galaxy AI Features

Published

on


Hey, Samsung Galaxy S22 owners! You could get Samsung’s recently introduced Galaxy AI tools on your older smartphone. 

Samsung has recently announced Galaxy AI features on the Galaxy S24 flagship series, which include various features such as Circle to Search, Live Translate, and more. After the announcement of the Galaxy AI features, the first thought that came to the old Galaxy device owners’ minds was whether their device was eligible to get these AI-powered features or not. 

Samsung previously just announced that the Galaxy AI features are high-end and can only run on a flagship device, and it will release some of the AI features to its older high-end smartphones in 2023 only. This announcement disappoints Galaxy S22 owners badly. 

But finally, things appear to have changed now, as Samsung MX CEO TM Roh stated that he is checking back into whether Galaxy AI features can be brought to older Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy S22. Reports are saying that he revealed this during the 55th annual general shareholders meeting of Samsung. 

However, at the moment, it’s not pretty confirmed that the Galaxy S22 will get Galaxy AI features, but it is a kind of sweet gesture from Samsung to Galaxy S22 owners, as Samsung is testing the stability of those features. AI features are also being tested on other high-end phones, but Roh did not list the names of all the devices. The brand will start rolling out the One UI 6.1 update, maybe later this month, and it will be completed by the end of this year. 

Initially, Samsung officially revealed that only Galaxy devices from 2023 are eligible for the Galaxy AI features (Circle to Search, Browsing Assist, Note Assist, and Generative AI-powered image and video editing), which include the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and the Galaxy Tab S9 series. 

Apart from this, he also revealed that the company is also working on rollable and slidable phones, and the testing of those devices is in the developing phase.

Samsung Self-Repair Program Discontinued by iFixit Over Accessibility Issues

Published

By


Samsung partnered with iFixit a couple of years ago and introduced a self-repair scheme in the US as an alternative to Apple’s program. This program is known for its repair guides, which make the program user-friendly. 

Now iFixit has decided to step back from collaborating with Samsung on this program. It is expected that Self-Repiar will live on with another partner, but iFixit will no longer play a role in it. iFixit has made some crucial claims regarding ‘obstacles’ from Samsung that prevented it from achieving the objective; however, the Korean brand has not responded yet. 

Regarding this decision, iFixit stated that even after its best efforts, it has not been able to deliver on the promise of offering independent repair shops with the tools and parts they require. The brand also depresses the point that it has continued going through a hard, challenging face that has made it “doubt Samsung’s commitment” to make repairs more accessible for customers. 

Samsung’s Self-Repair program faced various challenges; for instance, spare parts were difficult and expensive for repair shops to obtain; high part prices made repair costly as compared to replacing the device; and Samsung’s glued-together phone design raised repair difficulty and cost. iFixit also claims that the design of Samsung’s Galaxy devices is “frustratingly glued together,” forcing the brand to sell batteries and screens in pre-glued bundles that repair costs. 

In the end, iFixit says that it has ended its partnership with Samsung, saying that the Korean giant’s progress towards repairability doesn’t align with its mission. Starting next month, iFixit will cease to be an authorized third-party parts and tool distributor for Samsung. 

However, Samsung has not commented on the situation, but a response is expected due to the seriousness of iFixit’s claims.

Samsung Leads European Smartphone Market in Q1 2024

Samsung never fails to maintain its legacy of leading the tech market. This is what new reports are proving, since in Europe, the company managed to widen the gap between itself and its rival Apple.

If the latest metrics from Counterpoint Research are to be believed, Samsung was the biggest smartphone brand in Q1 2024. Its market share was 32%, and its sales increased by 7% in the first quarter of this year as compared to the first of last year (Q1 2023). However, somewhere, the Galaxy S24 series is the key reason behind the increment in sales since it was already reported that within a few days after its launch, the Galaxy S24 broke its predecessor’s Galaxy S23 series’ sales record. 

While its sales volume increase was not as good as the overall sales rise in the European market, which was at 10%, For the first time in two years, the South Korean firm regained its number one position in central and eastern European regions from Xiaomi. Apple scored a 25% share of the European smartphone market, two percentage points lower than last year. This means that iPhone sales decreased this year. Not only this, but iPhone sales are also expected to continue dropping until the launch of the iPhone 16 in Q4 2024. 

Xiaomi’s sales increased by 11% over 2023, and its overall market share in the European smartphone market earned 18%. Honor and Realme were the brands that showed the highest growth, and noticeably, Honor’s sales increased by 67% to reach a market share of 4%, whereas Reamle’s sales rose by 59% to reach a market share of 4%.

Samsung Knox Enhances Security to Curb AI Misuse

By


Transparently, Samsung is now dedicatedly focusing on AI security, and ethics are gaining traction. The reason behind this seems to be their chairman’s emphasis on responsible AI use. 

This suggests a growing trend within Samsung to get well-off and upgrade products and services that prioritize AI safety and ethical considerations. On May 22, industry sources reported that during the AI Seoul Summit held virtually on May 21, Lee Jae-young stated, “It is crucial to responsibly utilize the advantages of AI technology.” 

He also added, “Globally, there must be discussions on how to minimize the misuse of AI and maximize its benefits during the innovation process.” This meeting followed up on discussions from the AI Safety Summit held in Bletchley Park in the U.K. in November 2023 and was the second meeting co-hosted by South Korea and the U.K. 

Crimes using AI—for instance, breaches of personal information, corporate data theft, and financial sector hacking—are increasing globally, and now Samsung Electronics has been actively focusing attention on the safety of its AI products and services. The company is looking forward to preventing customer attrition in the AI market by increasing consumer trust. 

Currently, Samsung has debuted the application of its security solution “Knox” to “Family Care,” which was revealed at its Suwon site. Samsung’s AI home appliances are connected through an integrated SmartThings platform and have improved security because of privacy concerns. During the Bespoke AI Media Day in April, the incorporation of Knox into each home appliance was heavily emphasized. Vice Chairman Han Jin-hee stated, “The core of Bespoke AI is trustworthy security,” adding, “We prioritize security so that consumers can use our products with confidence.”
