Samsung has unveiled its new AI-powered flagship smartphone, featuring Google Gemini. The Samsung Galaxy S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra, are all hitting shelves this January 31st, with pre-orders open now. Advertised as a frontrunner in the AI smartphone market, what artificial intelligence feature can we expect?
What AI features will the Samsung Galaxy S24 have?
Samsung’s new flagship smartphone is touted as one of the first AI-native personal hardware devices. With dedicated AI hardware such as the Rabbit R1 and Humane AI pin becoming more popular, it was only a matter of time before smartphones followed.
The artificial intelligence contained within is capable of AI-powered search, providing “quick language translation on a call,”. This in addition to speech-to-text speech conversion, turns “your voice recording into text” before summarizing your call, plus allowing users to “effortlessly edit your photos.”
Circle to Search
Circle to Search is a new AI feature available at launch. It “enables you to search for details about an image or text automatically by drawing a simple gesture with the S Pen or your finger.” This impressive USP enables the user “to swiftly search the internet for items of interest in an image or text without changing applications or typing out your search query.”
To use AI Circle to Search:
- Tap and hold the home key.
- Use your finger or an S-pen to circle or tap the object of interest.
- Once your finger or S-pen is removed from the phone’s screen, the web search will begin.
Live Translate, available on all models, will translate “phone calls in real-time directly on your device. You will essentially have your own personal translator, which will make multilingual communication easier.”
At launch, “13 languages (17 regions) are supported”, with further language to be added via updates. These languages already include Chinese Simplified, English (India, United Kingdom, United States), French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish (Mexico, Spain, United States), Thai, and Vietnamese.
To use Live Translate:
- Make or receive a call using the native phone app, and tap on Call assist.
- Tap on Live Translate.
- Bixby Voice (Samsung’s proprietary AI assistant) will automatically use the language configuration selected in your device’s Settings to start the conversation.

When can I order the Galaxy S24 with AI?
Samsung is taking pre-orders now, until January 30th. Should you choose to order in advance, you’ll get “double the storage” — which specifically applies to 256GB for the price of 128GB.
All Samsung Galaxy S24 models will come with AI features, meaning that you can order your new AI-powered smartphone today.
Could smartphones be replaced by personal AI hardware like the Rabbit R1 and Humane AI pin? The form factor of personal communication hardware has been perfected over the past 50 years. Since the first cell phone call in 1973, we’ve been developing the form for mass distribution and usability. Between the first commercially distributed mobile phone, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, in 1983, to the first iPhone in 2007, it’s a time-tested high-demand market that we can’t see going anywhere. Now, with AI built-in, the future is firmly in your pocket (I can’t wait to be proved wrong in 5 years or less).
