Samsung exec confirms emergency satellite tech on the Galaxy S24 series

Samsung’s systems LSI Park Yong-in has confirmed that Galaxy phones will support satellite services from next year. This is a not-so-subtle hint about the Galaxy S24 series expected in early 2024.

2023 Semiconductor Expo (SEDEX), Park Yong-in added that technical preparations have already been made to enable communications using satellites. This may be a reference to the Exynos Modem 5300’s support for two-way communication via satellite.

However, this begs the question: If the rumors of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered Galaxy S24 Ultra and Exynos 2400-powered S24 and S24+ are true, how will the Ultra support the satellite communication feature?

Park Yong-in also talked about Samsung’s plans to boost smartphone graphics performance by improving ray tracing. It’s a feature that creates light reflections to add realism to games, and it premiered on the Galaxy S22 with the Exynos 2200.

He also talked about Generative AI, a feature front and center in Qualcomm’s newly announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. In short, it allows a virtual personal assistant to provide concise and human-like feedback, create media (videos and photos). And much more. We can take this as a sign that Samsung is looking to implement on-device generative AI in the Exynos 2400.
