Google plans Gemini Pro and Ultra in smartphones by 2025.

Google is one of the technology companies that is investing the most in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) to compete with the services of OpenAI, owner of ChatGPT and DALL-E. A great example of this is Geminiwhich will fully integrate it into Android smartphones starting next year.

Gemini is Google’s latest large language model (LLM) and has three versions: Nano, Pro and Ultra (Advanced). The first of them is the most basic version, it is focused on its use for mobile phones and began to be deployed at the end of 2023 (in Pixel and Samsung models). Now, it has been learned that they also plan to introduce the more advanced Pro and Ultra versions on smartphones thanks to some new changes.

The news of Gemini Pro and Ultra for mobile phones

Brian Rakowski, vice president of Pixel Product Management, was the one who announced in an interview for CNBC that both Pro and Ultra will be enabled for mobile phones in 2025.

Currently, these models are available for use from the browser and are not available for use internally on smartphones. Rakaowski explained that they have worked to “compress” these more complex versions“to run on the device.”

“Some have already been tested and others are being explored for some applications”, added the vice president of Product Management at Pixel. Most likely, these new features in its AI will reach Google phones first before the rest, as has already happened with the Nano version.

When will Gemini Nano come to more phones?

Gemini Nano is not yet enabled on all smartphones. First, they integrated it into some Google Pixel models and recently added to the Samsung Galaxy S24. Thanks to this, these phones have AI functions, such as ‘Summarize’ in the recorder application or ‘Smart Reply’ in the Gboard keyboard.

The smaller version will come to more devices soon. In X, Google announced in mid-February that Gemini Nano was now available in English in the United States for iOS and Android. Therefore, it is a matter of time before it reaches more countries, including Spain.

Differences between Gemini Nano, Pro and Ultra

Since the presentation of Gemini at the end of last year, Google has differentiated between three very specific versions. As we have already mentioned, Gemini Nano It is the one that has initially been developed for use on mobile phones, it is the smallest and is designed for basic tasks.

The intermediate size is Gemini Pro, which is more complex than Nano and therefore has higher performance. This model allows for a wide range of tasks and can be used through a browser.

Finally, Gemini Ultra It is the largest and most complex of Google. This version has a greater capacity for demanding tasks, but is only available for users subscribed to the Google One AI Premium plan, which costs 21.99 euros per month.

What happened to Bard?

Google launched Bard, an AI chatbot, last year. However, for some time now, we have stopped talking about Bard. This has caused many users to wonder what has happened and the truth is that the company continues working on that project, but under the name Gemini.

In mid-February, the brand announced that they would stop using the term Bard to give more voice to their LLM. Therefore, those who want to use its conversational generative AI will have to search for it by its new name, Gemini, instead of Bard.
