Samsung Galaxy AI Features Not Stay Free Forever: Will You Pay for It?

Published

on


Experience your Samsung Galaxy AI while you can, since they won’t be free forever. Samsung earlier this year introduced a powerful package of AI features named ‘Galaxy AI’ on the Galaxy S24 series and later expanded it to other Galaxy flagship devices. 

Samsung Galaxy AI Features Not Free

The Samsung Galaxy AI package includes multiple features such as Circle to Search, Chat Assist, Live Translate, generative wallpaper, and many more for enhancing the users’ experience, but unfortunately, they are no longer available for free. This is being speculated on in an official statement. 

On the official Galaxy AI page, Samsung mentioned in the terms and conditions section that “Galaxy AI features will be provided for free until the end of 2025 on supported Samsung Galaxy devices. Different terms may apply for AI features provided by third parties.” 

By this statement, it’s pretty clear that these Galaxy AI features are only available for free until 2025; after that, it will start asking for charges for using these novelties. However, the brand has not yet mentioned or unveiled how much it will cost or if it will offer plans for it. 

Somehow, the statement mentioned above pointed toward two notes: the first is that maybe the Korean giant is planning to support and upgrade Galaxy AI going forward, possibly adding new features alongside the next-generation Galaxy S25 in 2025, and the next is that after this year, when your base has grown and become established and some of you have grown comfortable with features like Translate, the trap will spring. 

On the other side, Google is also expected to charge for access to generative AI features, such as Gemini. It is just one part of Google One and has already offered both free and paid tiers. Along with the free tier, users can access 60 requests per minute and perform a wide range of image as well as text tasks. Whereas, with the paid tier, users have the power to access more than 60 requests but are charged $0.000125 per 1k character and $0.0025 per image. 

Here’s the question: Do people pay for the Galaxy AI features? 

Galaxy AI includes various features that are divided into two categories: one that works offline (live translation, chat translation, style and grammar, and more), and the second that requires an internet connection (summarize for Samsung Internet and more). If the brand asks for charges for AI features that don’t even require an internet connection, it’s pretty hard to believe users will agree or be interested in paying for them. On the other hand, if the brand charges for the Galaxy AI features that require an internet connection, there is quite a high chance that premium users will agree to pay. 

Why is Samsung looking forward to asking for charges to use the Galaxy AI features? 

In a way, Galaxy AI features are using different servers; for instance, Google for Circle to Search features. This means that Samsung should pay Google and another server provider, so maybe that’s the reason why the brand is looking forward to asking for the charges for Galaxy AI features. 

However, Samsung behind this decision has not revealed any reason officially yet, but it will be interesting to see what new changes it will introduce and how much it asks to pay for using Galaxy AI.

Samsung’s Relumino Mode Now Available on Galaxy Phones

Published

on


Samsung is adding one more functionality, ‘Relumino Mode’, from its smart TVs to its Galaxy smartphones for users’ overall viewing experience. 

The Korean giant introduced the Relumino Mode feature on Samsung Smart TVs, which enhances the viewing experience for people with low vision. It improves particular parts of the content on the TV’s display, such as contrast, color, and sharpness. Now the giant has decided to bring Relumino, an accessibility feature, from TVs to particular Galaxy smartphones, which it initially showed off at CES 2023

Somewhere, Relumino Mode’s functionality and features appear similar to the color contrast setting that was earlier available to access now with Android 15 Beta 2. In a new blog post, Samsung wrote, “Relumino Mode is the product of years of research and development to advance Samsung’s goal of providing “Screens for All” and improving the viewing experience for those with limited vision,” which highlights a range of accessibility features that it delivers. 

However, at the moment, it’s not clear whether this feature needs specific display hardware or if it’s purely a software-side update. According to Samsung’s blog post, the Galaxy S24 series “and beyond” should be able to access Relumino Mode now. The feature appears on the Galaxy S23+ devices that are running One UI 6.1, but unfortunately not on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or the Galaxy Z Fold 4, even after running the same interface. 

Owners of Galaxy phones with One UI 6.1 can easily check if the new convenient mode is available on their device or not by just following the steps mentioned here: go to Settings >> Accessibility >> Vision Enhancements >> Relumino outline. 

On the other hand, Apple also introduced new accessibility features that should land later this year, which include eye tracking to control iPhones and iPads.

Samsung Mocks Apple iPad Pro’s ‘Crush’ Ad With Artistic Response

Published

Samsung and Apple are the two biggest rivals of each other in the tech industry, as both brands never miss the chance to put down each other’s firm. Now the Korean giant has published a new commercial for its current flagship tablet, and the key reason behind this is pretty clear: to throw a dig at the competition. 

Apple introduced a new iPad at a lunch event on May 7th. During the event, the giant also showed a commercial called ‘Crush’ that resulted in a lot of controversy. 

Apple showcases a hydraulic press physically crushing musical instruments, paints, books, camera lenses, and more ahead of evidently revealing an iPad Pro, unfortunately, which backfired. Creative professionals saw a profound sense—a metaphor for technology replacing traditional forms of creativity. Many felt the impoliteness of artists and their professions, especially considering the rise of AI-powered art creation. 

However, every single person is free to have their own opinion, but Apple’s intention was beyond question—not this, but more to show how the new device in the house was able to encompass a whole series of tools and elements. Not only this, but the firm was forced to apologize publicly, removing the commercial from television publication. 

On the other hand, Samsung took all this fuss as a golden opportunity and capitalized on Apple’s controversial “Crush” ad, and Samsung released a counter-ad in which a musician walking through the wreckage left by Apple’s hydraulic press then picked up a partially destroyed guitar and started playing music. The center-worthy point of the ad is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra housed on a tripod nearby.
