Main background

Samsung’s “Galaxy Unpacked” event came to much fanfare on Wednesday, and many of the AI ​​features announced at the event weren’t exactly surprising due to leaks just days before the event. But the event came on the heels of an International Data Corporation report that Apple has officially overtaken Samsung as the world’s largest phone maker. Samsung is embracing artificial intelligence, integrating it directly into its devices, in a way that Apple has not. But as Bloomberg reported in October, Apple has increased its investments in AI, and is on track to invest more than $1 billion annually in generative AI products. Other tech companies are similarly looking to integrate AI directly into everyday use of devices, with Microsoft announcing earlier this month that it will include a new AI Assistant button on future keyboards to allow easy access to AI functions.

Surprising fact

Samsung on Wednesday committed to providing seven years of updates for the S24 series, following the example set by Google, which committed to seven years of updates on its new Pixel 8 series.
