Galaxy AI is soon expanding to more Samsung devices.

Samsung revealed that the Galaxy S23 series, S23 FE, Z Fold5, Z Flip5, and Tab S9 series are expected to receive Galaxy AI by late March. Galaxy AI, which was a highlight of Samsung Unpacked this year, is an artificial intelligence model on newer Samsung devices enabling various features like live translation, text summarization, message drafting, and advanced photo editing tools.

The Galaxy S24 series, already equipped with Galaxy AI upon its unveiling at Samsung Unpacked, is now rolling out Galaxy AI to other models through the One UI 6.1 update.

Although the Samsung Galaxy S22 won’t be receiving Galaxy AI, Samsung plans to extend the experience to over 100 million Galaxy users by 2024, ensuring broader access in the future.

Utilizing Google’s Gemini model through a partnership, Galaxy AI integrates features like Circle to Search and powers functions for apps such as Samsung Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard. Moreover, the Galaxy S24 series showcases AI-driven camera capabilities, including Generative Edit, which allows users to enhance photos, create slo-mo videos, and apply automatic adjustments even before capturing an image.

While the features of Galaxy AI seem promising, there is a caveat. Although currently free for Samsung S24 users, the service will transition to a paid model starting in 2026. Pricing details for Galaxy AI on other supported models like S23, Z Fold5, Z Flip5, and Tab S9 series were not specified, implying potential future costs.

The fine print indicates that some AI features from the Galaxy S24 series may not be available on previous generation models.

If you own any of the specified Samsung devices from previous generations, rest assured that you won’t have to wait long to access most Galaxy AI features.
