The latest update arrives with a number of new features and improvements that allow people to further customize their user experience, including the recently launched Bixby Text Call in English.

Those who prefer the English language in their Galaxy smartphone can now enjoy the feature as they can now answer calls from anywhere by typing a message and Bixby will convert the message into audio and communicate directly with the caller on their behalf.

This feature is currently available on Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra, Z Fold 4, and Z Flip 4. In addition, it works on phones with One UI 4.1.1 or above for Korean and phones with One UI 5.1 or above for English.

Bixby Custom Voice Creator

With the new Bixby Custom Voice Creator, you can customize Bixby’s text call voice. You can record individual sentences and create an AI-generated copy of your voice and tone for Bixby to analyze. Currently, this feature is available in Korea and is compatible with other Samsung apps besides phone calls.

At the moment, users of Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra can enjoy this Bixby Custom Voice Creator feature.

Improved Language Recognition, Processing, and Response

Samsung has also boosted the on-device AI support of Bixby. You can run fundamental commands completely offline like setting a timer, taking a screenshot, or turning on the flashlight.

The Korean tech giant is able to further expand its language offerings and capabilities with advanced AI-based voice dictation by integrating on-device AI with its native apps. The new upgrades to Bixby will be enabled by powerful innovations across Samsung Galaxy devices such as enabling industry-leading performance for on-device AI applications.

Notably, Samsung Galaxy users will receive new Bixby features through a new update in February. However, the exact timing and availability of the updates may vary by user and market.

According to YoungJip Kim, Executive Vice President and Head of the Artificial Intelligence Team in the Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics:

“When Samsung first launched Bixby as a voice assistant, it was part of a vision to create a human-to-machine interface that makes life easier and can advance over time with Samsung Galaxy innovation. Today, we introduce updates to build a more intelligent interface that is proactive and adaptive, giving people greater control over their mobile experience.”

Synopsis Samsung 2nm

Synopsis reiterated its cooperation with Samsung on the 2nm process. The company is introducing new semiconductor technologies to shorten the development and launch period. It makes full use of artificial intelligence to automate manufacturing facilities.

GM of Synopsis announced that it is collaborating with Samsung and SK Hynix. Both Korea-based semiconductor vendors are working with Synopsis for further advancements. Synopsis revealed that AI is being applied to automate HBM development by manufacturers this year.

Automated manufacturing sites will significantly increase the launch speed of HBM makers. In addition, Samsung’s Foundry business has also partnered with Synopsis on the development of an advanced 2nm process technology.

Synopsis GM also shared key details of their collaboration with Samsung. The companies are working on the development of future technology, silicon photonics. FYI, silicon photonics transmits signals through optical fibers and attracts attention as a next-gen input/output tech.

Last month, the Korean tech giant announced that it plans to debut silicon photonics technology around 2027. Synopsys explained that applying “Synopsys.ai Copilot” can shorten the semiconductor launch period.

Samsung 3nm process

Samsung was the first chip maker which achieve 3nm process technology. The company has also commercialized its 3nm products for mines industry. For mobile devices, the Galaxy Watch 7 debuted a 3nm Exynos processor with improved performance and efficiency.

Meanwhile, the company is facing issues with its second-gen 3nm process yield. The production yield is currently 20% which makes it almost impossible for mass production. As a result, it’s too hard for Samsung to kick off the mass production of the 3nm Exynos 2500 processor.

Galaxy AI brings smart Composer feature to Samsung Keyboard

Published

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

Samsung announced the new Galaxy AI Composer feature for the Samsung Keyboard. The feature is initially available for Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 smartphones. We expect it to arrive on older Galaxy AI-supported devices later this year.

Galaxy AI Composer feature is added to the Samsung Keyboard app. Galaxy users can easily generate suggested text based on simple keywords for email and supported media apps. The feature is quite smart and uses advanced machine learning and AI capabilities to compose text.

For instance, it will offer you a social media caption based on the tone you often use. There’s no need to worry about privacy as it only analyzes data from your previous public posts. Once done, it delivers relevant content that you may use without any modification.

Notably, Composer is a cloud-processing-based AI feature. It requires your Galaxy handset to be connected with a stable network connection and a Samsung Account login. Currently, it’s available in a limited number of languages with future expansion likely.

Apart from this, Galaxy AI also brings Sketch to Image and PDF Overlay Translation features. The former allows you to create artistic images by drawing simple sketches in the Notes app. The latter makes it possible to translate the entire PDF in real time without switching apps.

The Korean tech giant finally launched new Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 smartphones, Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro earbuds, Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra smartwatches as well as the Galaxy Ring. One UI 6.1.1 and One UI 6 Watch have many new features for Samsung consumers.

One UI 7 (Android 15) Beta Soon? Galaxy S24, S23 and S22 surfaced so far

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra S Pen

One UI 7 Beta could be coming soon as Samsung’s progressing too fast with Android 15. So far, the Galaxy S24+, Galaxy S23 Ultra, and Galaxy S22 spotted running Android 15 (probably One UI 7 Beta). It indicates that the Beta Program might kick off soon.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen multiple test firmware builds on the server. The progress was also too fast, which now reached the benchmark state. Now, Galaxy flagships running the new OS are being tested on Geekbench to check performance scores.

Earlier, the Galaxy S24+ benchmarked with One UI 7 firmware. Later on, the Galaxy S23 Ultra joined the party with the new skin, followed by the Galaxy S22 today. The S22 and S23 Ultra are Snapdragon variants while the S24+ boasted Exynos 2400 SoC.

Geekbench test scores can’t be considered final performance. The firmware installed on the devices is in a very early stage. The developers will further optimize the new software through internal testing before kicking off the Public Beta.

Samsung’s One UI Beta builds can be used by general users too. The firmware doesn’t have major problems like bricking the phone entirely or major performance downgrades. The program allows you to have the new software on your phone months ahead of release.

The One UI 7 will be based on Android 15 operating system. Google is set to introduce the Pixel 9 series in August this year. The new OS might also be formally released as it gained the Platform Stability with Beta 3. We guess the Oen UI Beta could launch in early or mid-August.

The Galaxy S22 series is unlikely to enter the Beta Program in some markets like Germany. However, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S23 series could be invited for Beta in 7 markets. Some mid-range and budget Galaxy A/M/F phones are also likely to join the Beta later this year.
