Samsung Will Introduce AI Live Translate Call for its Smartphones by 2024

Samsung Electronics, the leading South Korean smartphone manufacturer, is set to introduce a cutting-edge real-time translation service integrated with AI technology in the coming year, according to a report by AFP.

The real-time translation feature is slated to debut in Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy flagship model, scheduled for an early release in 2024. This functionality will facilitate instant translation in both audio and text formats during phone calls, irrespective of the number of languages supported, which remains undetermined at this stage.

Crucially, the translation service will function seamlessly even if the call recipient is using a non-Samsung smartphone. This interoperability is achieved through the utilization of “on-device AI technology.

Importantly, private conversations conducted through this translation service will be securely contained within the phones.

“AI Live Translate Call will soon give users with the latest Galaxy AI phone a personal translator whenever needed. Because it’s integrated into the native call feature, the hassle of using third-party apps is gone, Samsung said in an official announcement.

Samsung plans to integrate this AI system into various products in the near future, although specific details regarding timing and supported models are yet to be disclosed.
