It is no secret that the features introduced by Apple often generate new trends in the market. The launch of the iPhone 14 did not break this trend, with some of its features already being pointed out to various rival brands.
The latest covers Samsung and the likely future of its lineup of high-end devices. In the case of the South Korean, there is already speculation that satellite connectivity will be a reality in South Korean products.
Samsung will equip its Galaxy with satellite connectivity
This was one of Apple’s main revelations at the iPhone 14 presentation event. Their team has technology that allows them to use orbiting satellites to communicate with various emergency services.
This option is designed to provide users with a way to send messages to emergency services even when network coverage fails. In this way, no one will be unreachable in emergency situations.
Now, as Ricciolo points out on Twitter, Samsung is preparing to launch similar functionality on its Galaxy devices. Although it does not go into additional details, it is likely that this will already happen in the Galaxy S23.
In fact, your ceilings will surely benefit from an initial exclusivity of this feature. Like its great rival, Samsung should reserve satellite connectivity for its flagships.
However, it is important to note that this option may not be available at launch for all users. Like Apple, Samsung will have to find a partner that gives it access to its satellites to communicate with its smartphones.
Another point to discover is the official designation that Samsung will give to this feature. In Apple’s case, this was known as Emergency SOS, but the South Korean company will surely give its solution a different name.
There are still several months to go until the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 and until then we will surely know more details about this feature. Until then, we should always be skeptical when reading this information.
