Either you have a high-end device from 2023 or later, or you can forget about using the Galaxy AI options
The introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S24 also marks the beginning of Galaxy AI, the technology that brings generative AI options to these devices. The features — most from Google and coming to other devices, some exclusively — are promising, but it wasn't clear what Samsung devices they would eventually be available on.
Now we know. Samsung has confirmed that Galaxy AI will be available in Specific and limited choice– From Galaxy family devices like the S24 Ultra, there is a clear requirement: any model launched before 2023 will not include these options at the moment.
There is actually an additional requirement: Only the latest high-end products They will have these AI functions. In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S24 mentioned above, the list of mobile phones and tablets that will feature Galaxy AI will be as follows:
- Galaxy Z Fold5
- Galaxy Z Flip 5
- Galaxy S23 Ultra
- Galaxy S23+
- Galaxy S23
- Galaxy S23 FE
- Galaxy Tab S9
- Galaxy Tab S9+
- Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
It is of course surprising that relatively recent models such as the Galaxy S22 or Galaxy S22 Ultra do not have access to this option (at least for now), but here Samsung wanted to explain why.
This was explained by Patrick Chomet, Head of Customer Experience at Samsung On Tech Radar: “We want to ensure that over time, our AI experiences can be supported by performance [móvil]”, and of course both the CPU and GPU They must be strong enough So that this experience is smooth.
This manager added: “Right now, we are learning; we are going step by step. We know that Galaxy AI works well on the Galaxy S24 series and we know that it will work well on [la serie Galaxy S23]. “But we don’t know how intensive the use of AI will be for the average customer or how it will impact resources on the device and in the cloud.”
Therefore, at Samsung, they want to go step by step and not deploy these functions lightly if they are not sure that the experience will not be enough. This is of course the argument they are conveying, but there is another argument that is clear to users: with this strategy, They force their customers to renovate their stations Or be left without such options.
