Samsung Considers Adding Galaxy AI Features to Older Phones like Galaxy S22

On March 20, according to IT House, earlier today, Lu Taewon, the head of Samsung Electronics’ mobile division, revealed at the company’s 55th Annual Shareholders Meeting that they are considering bringing some Galaxy AI features to older phones such as Galaxy S22.

Lu Taewon stated that the goal of Galaxy AI is “hybrid artificial intelligence,” combining cloud-based AI with on-device AI technologies, greatly influenced by hardware performance. Implementing AI on devices considering these hardware limitations requires a lot of effort, and the company is currently investing resources and energy into this.

Lu Taewon also mentioned that the company is currently developing phones with horizontally and vertically rolling screens, and these devices are already in testing. Before introducing new design concepts to the market, extensive research is needed to ensure product integrity and whether customers will perceive its value.

As reported by IT House earlier, in January of this year, Patrick Chomet, head of Samsung’s Customer Experience Department, confirmed to TechRadar that Galaxy AI will not be extended to older models released before 2023, such as the Galaxy S22 series.

He explained:

“We want to ensure that our AI experience evolves over time and is supported by the performance of the (mobile device), which requires the capabilities of CPU and GPU.

… We know that Galaxy AI performs well on the Galaxy S24 series, and we also know that it will do well on the Galaxy S23 series. But we do not know the extent to which regular users will utilize AI, or the impact of this intensity on device and cloud resources.

First, we want to ensure the quality and performance of the deployed functionalities. Then, we will understand how people use these features and adjust the performance. Next, we will deploy Galaxy AI on the second batch of devices, especially on the S23, S23 FE, Z Fold 5, Z Flip 5, and Tab S9, to understand its performance.”

According to the goal proposed by Lu Taewon in January of this year, the company aims to apply Galaxy AI to around 100 million Galaxy mobile devices globally this year.
