2023 Samsung Flagships Set to Receive Galaxy AI Tomorrow

galaxy ai rolls out to s23

If you're rocking a 2023 top-of-the-line Galaxy device and feeling a bit left out while watching Galaxy S24 owners enjoy all the AI excitement, fret not. Tomorrow, you'll get to experience the buzz firsthand.

Samsung's Galaxy S23, S23+, S23 Ultra, and S23 FE, along with the foldable Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5, are all set to receive a One UI 6.1 update tomorrow, unlocking the new Galaxy AI features.

For folks in the US, this includes phones from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, UScellular, and other carriers, as well as devices bought from Amazon, Best Buy, and similar retailers. Unlocked S23/Z phones, however, will have to wait until April. European units seem to be exempt from these restrictions.

As for tablets, the Wi-Fi versions of the Galaxy Tab S9, Tab S9+, and Tab S9 Ultra are also slated to get the update tomorrow, with the 5G-enabled models following suit in April. Unfortunately, the Tab S9 FE duo is left out of the party.

The new features encompass:

  • Circle to Search with Google: A simplified version of Google Lens for easy access.
  • Live Translate: Real-time two-way voice translation during phone calls, with optional live captions.
  • Generative Edit: Resize, remove objects, and fill in backgrounds without needing Photoshop skills.
  • Chat Assist: Integrated into the Samsung keyboard, offering translation, writing style advice, and spelling/grammar tweaks.

Additionally, the German press release mentions Edit Suggestion and Instant Slow-Mo, along with Note Assist (automatic summaries and translations of notes) and Transcribe Assist (convert audio recordings into text).

These features are free to use until the end of 2025. However, Samsung hasn't disclosed their post-2025 pricing yet. It's worth noting that all features, except Chat Assist, rely on cloud services and thus require an internet connection to function.

Samsung is reportedly working on bringing Galaxy AI to the S22 series, but details about its release remain unclear.
