Full Story

Samsung’s got some exciting news. The upcoming Galaxy S24 flagship line will boast AI features, one of which is the Live Translate Call feature. According to Nikkei Asia, this feature will debut with support for English and Spanish, then expand to other languages like Korean and Japanese.

What’s this feature all about? It’s about breaking language barriers. It allows two people who speak different languages to have a phone conversation. The words spoken by each caller are translated into the other’s language in real-time.

Here’s the kicker. Nikkei Asia found out that this feature works even if the other person doesn’t have a Galaxy S24 series device. So, if you’re a Galaxy S24 Ultra owner, you can chat with someone who speaks a different language and uses an iPhone, a Pixel, or any other non-Samsung brand.

Both parties will hear the conversation translated in their ears, real-time. Want to see the translation? It can appear as text on your phone’s screen.

Samsung could’ve limited this feature to Galaxy-to-Galaxy calls. But they didn’t. They chose to let calls between a Galaxy S24 series handset and another phone benefit from this AI feature. It’s like they’re making the world smaller, one call at a time.

Now, about the translations. They’re seamless. Unlike previous call-based translation apps that relied on the cloud and caused slight delays, these translations will be instant. Thanks to more powerful chips, conversations can be translated instantly on-device.

Samsung first announced its AI-based Live Translate Call feature in November. They’ll be using Samsung’s Gauss generative AI model and the company’s proprietary processors to provide on-device translations.

But wait, there’s more. Rumor has it that the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro will offer the same real-time language translation feature. It will also allow face-to-face conversations to be translated. The Galaxy Buds 3 Pro is expected to hit the market in the second half of next year.

The Live Translate Call feature will work on the earbuds even when there’s no internet connection.

The Galaxy S24 flagship series is expected to be unveiled on January 17th, with pre-orders starting the same day. The rumored release date for the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra is January 30th.
