Samsung Galaxy smartphones will support satellite communications starting next year. This was confirmed by Park Yong-in, President of System LSI at Samsung. It’s a not-so-subtle reference to the Galaxy S24 series, which will be unveiled in early 2024. Park Yong-in spread the good news at the current Semiconductor Expo 2023 (SEDEX) in Seoul.

Accordingly, Samsung has already made technical preparations to enable communication via satellites. This could be an indication of the Exynos 5300 modem’s support for two-way communication via satellite. However, it raises the question of how important the chipset is in this matter. The Samsung executive talked about the in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, which is rumored to power all Galaxy S24 and S24+ in Europe and South Korea. But what about satellite communication features on the Galaxy S24 Ultra and its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip?

Park Yong-in also spoke about Samsung’s plans to increase the graphics performance of smartphones through improved raytracing. Raytracing is responsible, among other things, for light reflections in games to make them look more realistic. Samsung first introduced the feature on the Galaxy S22 and its Exynos 2200 processor.

He also talked about Generative AI, a key feature of Qualcomm’s newly announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Essentially, it allows a virtual personal assistant to give concise and human-like answers, generate media (videos and photos), and more. There are some indications that Samsung also wants to implement generative AI in the Exynos 2400.
