The invitation validates what the majority of us previously assumed would be the event’s main topic: artificial intelligence.

AI Live Translate Call is expected to launch in the first part of 2019.
The Live Translate Call function, according to the firm at the time, was just a little taste of what was to come. The announcement of Samsung Gauss, the company’s generative AI model, which can create and edit photographs, write letters, condense documents, and code for you, confirms that Samsung is prepared to fight in this competitive AI market.

Galaxy S24: What We Expect
Rumors have been circulating for months suggesting that Samsung will make the Galaxy S24 announcement in January, and it seems those stories are accurate. Because Samsung updated the Galaxy S series in February of last year, it is releasing its upcoming phones a bit sooner than usual.
Anticipated to feature a titanium frame, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will undoubtedly evoke comparisons with the Apple iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, which are outfitted similarly.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 system on a chip (SoC) is anticipated to run the S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra internally. Samsung may be alluding to the RedMagic 9 Pro, which showcases the 8 Gen 3’s incredible capability and crucial role in enabling on-device AI computations with the slogan for the occasion.
According to a different report, the standard S24 will continue to have 8GB of RAM, similar to the S23 model, while the S24 Plus and Ultra may have 12GB for an increase in performance.
A leaker going by the handle MysteryLupin has released what appears to be retailer advertisement content describing the new S24 series. According to the text, the S24 Plus and Ultra versions will be able to use generative editing to fill in blank areas and use AI to move or delete objects in images. These features sound a lot like those that were introduced with the Google Pixel 8 series last year.
According to some sources, the Samsung Phone app will include a live translation function so that two people who don’t speak the same language may communicate.
Additionally, according to Ice Universe, the S24 Ultra might be able to record 4K video at an incredible 120 frames per second. However, the company cautions that this feature is still in testing and might not be available at launch.
We’re interested to see which reports prove to be true and which are pure fiction. Watch this space for PCMag’s in-depth coverage of Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event on January 17.
