Samsung trolls Apple Intelligence through Galaxy AI ads

Published

Samsung Intelligence Voice Services update

Samsung takes a swipe at Apple ahead of the unveiling of Apple Intelligence AI. Recently, Samsung’s US X handle posted a handful of videos, promoting key Galaxy AI features of the Galaxy S24 series. The ads also highlight features, which are not available on iPhone.

One of the Galaxy AI ads shows the “iPhone” word gradually unfolding and is filled with the phrase “Dare you to zoom into the dark without a Galaxy.” The video then ends with an actor holding an S24 Ultra and taking a night photo in a dark environment, with the words “Can your Apple do this?”.

This is a video highlighting the ‘Night Mode’ feature, which lets you take clear photos even in dark environments. The image quality of the Galaxy S24 series Night Mode has been improved with the AI-based ‘Pro Visual Engine’. Night Mode is a feature not found on Apple iPhones.

Another video shows the influencer using the ‘Galaxy AI Generative Photo Editing’ feature on the Galaxy S24 to enlarge a small apple. The post includes the caption “See what you can do with this apple.”

Other videos include scenes using the AI-based ‘Instant Slow Motion’ feature to slow down regular videos and the generative editing feature to erase an ‘apple’.

The videos, which are all composed of scenes reminiscent of the Apple iPhone, are filled with the phrase “Do more with an apple than Apple has ever done before.”

Samsung and Apple are known for their aggressive marketing campaigns that take shots at each other ahead of major events. Last year, Samsung criticized the iPhone 15 series over the inclusion of a USB C-Type port, which was the first to debut in the iPhone segment.

Apple’s first AI system, Apple Intelligence, is likely to be an AI-based system that controls existing applications (apps) rather than AI services such as image or video generation, similar to Galaxy AI.

Methods such as summarizing memos, text messages, and emails or automatically generating replies are being discussed. It is also expected that generative AI will be grafted onto the voice assistant Siri.

Samsung Galaxy Ring cheapest in Korea, not the US: Price breakdown

Samsung Galaxy Ring

Samsung Galaxy Ring is cheapest in South Korea followed by the US. The company’s first ring-type wearable is available for pre-order in six countries. Of these countries, Korea is the cheapest while the UK is the most expensive Galaxy Ring market.

Galaxy Ring pricing data gathered by AndroidAuthority shows that the product is the cheapest in South Korea. In US dollar terms, Samsung is selling the Galaxy Ring for $360, translated from the 499,400 Korean won retail price.

Samsung is selling the Galaxy Ring for $400 in the United States. The pricing decision makes it $40 more expensive than South Korea. It costs $412 (2,999 CNY) in China, $489 (440 EUR) in Germany and France, and $515 (399 GBP) in the UK.

As of now, the Korean tech giant is availing the Galaxy Ring in two Asian and three European countries alongside the United States. Notably, the US price in the below-mentioned chart doesn’t include sales tax, which could be approximately $40 or $45.

Samsung Galaxy Ring Price

Samsung will put the Galaxy Ring on general sale on July 24, 2024. If you travel abroad, you will be able to save some money on your Ring purchase. However, your trip destination should be South Korea or China to have travel discount perks.

The general availability will commence the day after tomorrow. We expect US e-commerce platforms would bring some sharp discounts for local shoppers in the US. Amazon and Best Buy may put the Galaxy Ring on sale, bringing additional discounts.

Well, it would take time for Galaxy Ring to see any significant price reduction. It all depends on the popularity of the product and production volume. If the product becomes hit, forget about any severe cash discount for at least 6 months.

Samsung’s Galaxy Ring is available in 9 different sizes. Pre-order your Ring to claim early buyer perks and faster delivery at your doorstep. You can also opt for a Sizing Kit, which will help you determine the perfect Ring size for yourself.
