Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Could Tap Into Google’s Bard AI Capabilities


Samsung is rumored to launch the Galaxy S24 in January next year, which is unlike with recent Galaxy S Unpacked events that happened in February. While the company has not confirmed any details or information about the event, a leaked teaser has revealed the exact time of the keynote alongside a hint of Galaxy AI.

Previous reports indicated the Unpacked event will happen on January 17, 2024, and will be held in San Jose, California. Leaker Evan Blass supports the idea by sharing a short clip on X of what appears to be part of a countdown to the upcoming event.

Apparently, the post has been taken down which highlighted the exact event schedule that is set to happen on January 18, 3:00 AM (local South Korean time). This makes it January 17 at 10:00 PM in US Pacific Standard Time (PST). A timer was also attached that goes to the last second on when the Unpacked event will begin alongside a note for a livestream option to watch the event.

The leaked teaser also shows an animation featuring stars that transform into text with the words “Galaxy AI is coming”. Interestingly, the stars resemble Google Bard’s icon branding, although the hues are different. So far, there is no official confirmation if Samsung plans to utilize a Google Bard or Gemini-powered AI in the upcoming Galaxy flagship smartphones. Regardless, the teaser most likely points to this possibility.

Samsung’s Galaxy S24 trio is expected to debut with on-board generative AI capabilities, including the ability for wallpaper generation and real-time translation, among others. The Galaxy S24 will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with some countries receiving the Exynos 2400 variant. Additionally, bigger RAM and memory configurations are planned for the Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra as well.

Earlier this week, official-looking images of the Galaxy S24 have surfaced, confirming new colors, updated design with flatter frames, and thinner bezels. The entire Galaxy S24 range is said to undercut many of their competitors by retaining this year’s Galaxy S23 pricing structure.
