Samsung May Bring Satellite Features To The Galaxy S24: Report Says 

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Samsung has just revealed that it will be adding satellite-based capabilities to the Galaxy S24.
  • The company has been exploring the possibility of sending and receiving any kind of messages through satellite.
  • This would offer the ability to the users for sending text messages to anyone else, not just emergency services, while there is no cellular connection available. 

Samsung has just revealed that it will be adding satellite-based capabilities to the Galaxy S24. On a parallel side, Apple already introduced Emergency SOS in 2022 through Satellite along with the iPhone 14 lineup, which permits users to call emergency services for help in places where there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity. Since then, other smartphone makers have been working with Google to bring a similar feature to Android devices. 

The Korean brand also already revealed that it plans to bring smartphone satellite connectivity. However, Samsung executive Park Young confirmed this week that the brand will begin offering satellite connectivity for emergency services on its forthcoming flagship phones starting in early 2024. 

However, the details are not clear yet, so it’s no surprise that Young makes reference to the Galaxy S24, as Samsung typically announces its new high-end smartphones in January or February. The reason behind this strategy of the brand still remains to be seen. Apple powered its iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 lineups with these satellite capabilities, and similarly, Samsung could also power its forthcoming Galaxy S24 lineup by satellite connectivity. 

On the iPhone, the Emergency SOS, through the Satellite feature, asks the users a few questions regarding the situation and sends the answers with the present location to a relay center. Specialists then call emergency services on the user’s behalf. Meanwhile, this feature on Samsung smartphones should work similarly; the company has been exploring the possibility of sending and receiving any kind of messages through satellite. 

This would offer the ability to the users for sending text messages to anyone else, not just emergency services, while there is no cellular connection available.
