Samsung is reportedly working with AMD and Qualcomm to develop FidelityFX Super Resolution software for Galaxy phones. At present, this functionality is available on AMD Radeon GPUs and is supported by select games.
According to tipster @Tech_Reve, Samsung joined forces with AMD and Qualcomm to jointly develop FidelityFX Super Resolution software. It’s probably to compete with NVIDIA’s DLSS and coming to Galaxy phones along with ray tracing in the future.
Apart from this, the tipster has not shared any more details about the firms’ FSR project. However, it should be noted that FSR could be supported on both Exynos and Snapdragon-powered Galaxy devices.
If FidelityFX Super Resolution for mobile is being developed to compete with NVIDIA’s tech, it could greatly boost gaming by using AI to generate additional high-quality frames and improve image quality by creating additional pixels, reports AndroidAuthority.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and S23 Ultra design compared in live images
Samsung is expected to hold the next Unpacked event in January next year. After leaked hands-on, new live images of the Galaxy S24 Ultra have surfaced, showing off design changes over its predecessor.
In the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung is not heavily tweaking the overall look and design. While the display is ditching curved edges, the rear design looks a lot identical to the S23 Ultra, which is hard to compare.
As you can see in the image showing the phone’s bottom, the speaker grille has ditched the holes in favor of a single linear cutout. The company has also flattened out the bottom of the S Pen.
Notably, the Galaxy S24 Ultra makes use of a titanium frame instead of aluminum, while other models follow the older frame strategy.
