Full Story

Oh, did you hear the latest? AssembleDebug, that Android whiz everyone follows, dropped some juicy deets on the Pixel-focused blog. It’s all about the new Google Pixel phones. And guess what? They’re about to get a serious AI glow-up.

We’re talking text-to-image magic, folks. Plus, a souped-up Magic Compose feature. Oh, and it doesn’t stop there. These phones might just whip up auto-reply suggestions that’ll make you go, “Did I write that?” And let’s not forget about sorting and embedding text like a boss.

Now, where’s all this intel from? A little birdie, aka code sleuthing, in the latest and greatest versions of Google’s AI Core app and the Google Messages beta. Piunikaweb’s got the scoop, saying the Pixel 9 could be popping out images without even a smidge of cloud help. Imagine the speed!

Remember the Pixel 8 Pro? Did the whole AI-generated wallpaper thing but needed cloud backup? Seems like old news now. And there’s more. The OCR feature is getting a buff, promising next-level on-device text recognition. Plus, there’s chatter about an AI that chats back in the Google Messages app. Spotted in the beta code, no less.

If this all pans out, and Google really does amp up the on-device AI game, the Pixel 9 series could be a whole new ball game. Why, you ask? Let’s dive into the perks of on-device AI versus the cloud.

First off, privacy and security. Your data stays your data, no cloud sending required. That means fewer chances for leaks and more peace of mind. Then, there’s the speed – no back-and-forth with the cloud means you’re getting answers at lightning speed. And the cherry on top? It works offline. No Wi-Fi, no problem.

Samsung‘s already riding the on-device AI wave, tapping into Google’s Gemini AI models for a slew of features. They launched One UI 6.1 and the Galaxy AI system with the Galaxy S24 series, making a splash. Initially, it was just for the S24 gang, but after folks couldn’t get enough, Samsung’s spreading the love.

So, there you have it. A little peek into the future of Pixel phones and a nod to Samsung’s moves. It’s all happening, and we’re here for it.
