Samsung One UI 7 Galaxy AI features wishlist

One UI 6.1.1 Galaxy S24 AI

Samsung One UI 7 update will come with new AI features for Galaxy devices. Post-Galaxy AI launch, Apple launched Apple Intelligence with iOS 18. Samsung has debuted new and improved AI features to counter Apple’s early entry into the segment.

Samsung One UI 7 Galaxy AI features wishlist

Galaxy AI comes with both on-device AI and cloud-processing-based features. The next frontier of Galaxy AI debuted on July 10 with the Galaxy Z6 series. However, we hope for more advanced and useful AI features with the 2025 iteration.

Enhanced on-device and cloud AI

Galaxy S24 and Z6 series are powered by Gemini Nano AI model. Google is working on Gemini Nano v2 with more AI capabilities, power efficiency, and reliability. It would benefit smartphones equipping the new AI model developed by Google.

The mixed suite of AI features is beneficial in many ways. Consumers don’t need to worry about privacy with on-device AI features. At the same time, consumers get quite useful image and video editing tools as well as wallpaper generators through cloud-based AI.

OS-level writing tools

One UI 7 should follow Apple’s edge of system-wide writing tools. Galaxy’s next major Galaxy AI upgrade should introduce features like rewrite, proofread, and summarize that work across all apps. Upgraded writing assistance will surely help Galaxy users in their everyday tasks.

AI notifications

Notifications are the most important aspect of our smartphones. Whether it’s a phone call, text message, or social media interaction, the notification function is the key to all. Due to multiple apps and services, users often face a condition where arrangement becomes a tough task.

Apple Intelligence managed to address the problem with the Priority Notifications feature. Artificial intelligence learns the usage patterns and importance plus priority of notifications. Based on deep analysis, the OS displays priority notifications on top followed by others.

Image and video enhancement

One UI 6.1’s Photo Editor added many useful tools for pro-editing in less time. Many third-party AI-powered photo editing apps are loaded with cool features. Samsung should adopt such tools to offer an effortless editing experience on Galaxy devices.

Smart Circle to Search

Circle to Search is a great feature that debuted with the Galaxy S24 series. Samsung and Google expanded it to their flagship devices. Besides, Google is working to fulfill its commitment to installing Circle to Search on 200 million devices worldwide.

This functionality should be further optimized with system functions. The addition of the translate button is worth praising and we need Circle to Search to evolve further. Apple’s iPhones don’t have any feature similar or equivalent to Circle to Search.
