The Samsung Galaxy S24 arrives in Spain with a multitude of new features focused on artificial intelligence, and we have already been able to test them.

 

Samsung has announced at an event held in San José, United States, its new family of high-end mobile phones, the Samsung Galaxy S24, three models that maintain a continuous design line with respect to what was seen in previous generations, but in this chance They arrive loaded with news thanks to artificial intelligence.

This technology, which has been a surprise in 2023, now reaches one of the best-selling mobile brands in the world, with a very strong integration that changes and improves the way we relate to mobile phones. It is possible that none of the functions that have been integrated into the S24 Series are new, but the Being able to carry everything on your mobile can be something remarkably innovative.

In the hours in which we have been able to test these three models It has given us the feeling of being at the doors of a revolution, like when cell phones started to have an integrated camera. Yes, there were cameras before, but the fact of always carrying one in your pocket was what changed everything. Something similar could happen here.

A photo and video AI

Although many users use Google Photos as their Gallery, There are many who, on Samsung models, continue to use the application with this name, the manufacturer’s own, to view their photos and edit them. Not in vain this application already allowed things like remove objects, remaster images by increasing quality, etc.

These functions are maintained, but now they have been enhanced in two ways. On the one hand, the system offers suggestions for improvement when we open a particular photograph. This is possible thanks to artificial intelligence, which detects what is in the photo. For example, in a portrait he proposes blurring the backgroundwith a fairly well-done cut. In a black and white image you can even color it. The latter, along with the option to remaster, can make the S24 perfect tools for retouching old photos that we have printed.

In the gallery too AI can be used to select an object in an image and move it, or resize it. Even when straightening a crooked photo, image generation will be used to fill in the edges, thus not losing part of the photograph as happened until now, by having to crop it. The only thing we have missed is being able to enlarge an image using AI without having to rotate it first.

All Functions related to artificial intelligence will be identifiable by a three-star symbol. Coincidentally, it looks very similar to the original Samsung logo which, in Korean, means three stars. This logo will appear on AI-retouched images, so you know they are not normal photos.

 

Another novelty that comes from the hand of AI is be able to search for what appears on the screen simply by clicking on the three bottom Home buttons (or the gesture bar if this form of scrolling is used). When this is done, you can mark an area with your finger or the S-Pen and the system will return a Google search for said image. Besides, Any video stored in the phone’s gallery will be capable of being viewed in slow motion simply by holding your finger on the screen. The AI ​​will generate the necessary frames in real time to provide the expected fluidity. This function requires, however, that the videos be physically on the mobile, and that the Gallery application be used.

Image generation has become one of the most used and valued functions of artificial intelligence. Tools like Midjourney or Dall-E 3 are incredibly powerful, but using them requires installing apps, signing up for services, and even paying.

If what you want is generate an image to use as wallpaper, in the S24 Series this is much easier. You just have to go to the generative fill in the Wallpapers menu and select three different parameters from among the dozens that are proposed. With a very simple interface, the system will create multiple images with the chosen theme, tones and style. The interface is the same seen in the Pixel so it is very likely that Samsung has borrowed it from Google.

AI is integrated into more apps

As with the gallery application, Samsung’s web browser also receives new features. Among them stands out the option of summarize a particularly long web page with a simple tap. In addition, this summary can be somewhat larger, in case we want more context.

 

Similarly, it is possible to translate both the web page and its summary, so obtaining information from long articles in other languages ​​is tremendously simple and fast. Obviously these functions are not available in Chrome or other browsers.

But possibly the application that has received the most new features has been the Notes application. With the help of artificial intelligence Texts written by hand with the S-Pen can be converted to editable text. Also A text can be formatted automatically, with its title, sections and other sections. And if there are doubts about Spelling can be corrected by pressing a buttonthe functions being highlighted.

 

Added to these new features is the ability to summarize a text or translate it, as seen in the web browser. Besides, The different virtual notebooks with the associated notes can be personalized not only with icons, but with designs created with AI which will depend on the text of the notes themselves.

Where artificial intelligence also shines is the translation and dubbing functions, as they have explained in depth in Omicrono. The S24 Series have an interpreter modewhich opens from the quick access section, there is no app, to be able to watch it in one language and listen to it in another.

 

Also there are calls in real time that are translated and transcribedperfect when you have to talk to someone whose language we don’t know. And if instead of talking we want to chat, it is possible to do it by SMS or WhatsAppfor example, whenever the Samsung keyboard is used.

The latest major app revamped with AI is the tape recorder, which is capable of transcribing an audio that we have recorded and showing the audio part of each word. Besides, allows you to make a summary of the entire recording, indicate when the different interlocutors speak and even layout the final text to be able to use it in different applications.

The beginning of a change

As mentioned at the beginning, Samsung’s artificial intelligence functions do not represent a revolution. We could already summarize texts, transcribe audios, edit images… But this required different applications, different tools and web platforms and, in many cases, payment.

Samsung not only has integrated all this into its three Samsung Galaxy S24, but it has done it in a very comfortable way for the user. AND free. Obviously, in order to use these functions it is necessary that the mobile phone has a processor designed for this, which means that other mobile phones with these capabilities cannot be updated with software.

What we do hope is, little by little, these functions will become more and more numerous, become more useful and, little by little, may reach mid-range models of next generations. This could make AI something normal in the use of our mobile phones on a daily basis. As is the camera.
