It’s Samsung Unpacked season! We’ve got the deets about the tech giant’s latest launches: its Galaxy AI and S24 series which are arriving in Singapore soon.
Samsung Galaxy S24 series specs
Similar to its S23 series and its predecessors, the new range comes in three variations: Galaxy S24 Ultra, Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24. Here are some of the noteworthy features you don’t want to miss.
AI is at the heart of the new features of the range. Samsung promises to enhance everyday experiences, especially in the areas of communication, photography, gaming, and more. The Live Translate offers two-way, real-time voice and text translations of phone calls within the native app. It’s perfect for your travels or if you’re talking with someone who uses a different language.
Samsung also partnered with Google for its Circle to Search feature. It’s like Google Lens but more convenient and easy to use. All you have to do is long-press the home button, then circle, highlight, scribble on, or tap anything on Galaxy S24’s screen and see helpful, high-quality search results. No need for you to leave a particular app to find exactly what you’re looking for.
If you’re someone who prioritises a phone’s camera specs, you’ll be thrilled to find out that its ProVisual Engine’s AI-powered tools will change your photography game. It promises to deliver crystal clear images even at 100x zoom. The S24 Ultra also promises to help you shoot super stable 8K videos and 50MP photos. You can also enjoy the Super HDR feature which reveals lifelike previews before the shutter is pressed. After taking your photos, you can use its Galaxy AI editing tools which will provide suitable tweaks to turn your images into masterpieces.
For the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung tapped Wednesday star Emma Myers to tour around Seoul and try out some of the phone’s captivating features. We could feel her happiness as she took crisp photos and videos of some of the city’s lovely attractions, filmed a Happily Ever After dance challenge with TXT, used the phone’s upgraded Nightography Zoom for her fan cam, and more.
For gamers, Samsung boasts that its S24 Ultra possesses its most hyper-realistic mobile gameplay yet. It’s made with the Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 for faster processing and has a larger Vapor Chamber to improve heat dissipation.
