Rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S23, the company’s next flagship, began months before its release. According to “The Elec” from Korea, the company intends to add satellite connectivity to the Galaxy S23 series.
The report says that Samsung plans to use satellite connectivity in the Galaxy S23 to send data at hundreds of kbps, like text messages and small images.
Huawei’s Mate 50 Pro has satellite connectivity, allowing you to send and receive limited text messages via China’s Beidou satellites.
According to the report, Samsung will work on it alongside partner Iridium. According to previous reports, the company’s 66 low-orbit communication satellites are being used in collaboration with smartphone manufacturers.
Apple has partnered with Globalstar to add Emergency SOS via satellite service to the iPhone 14 series, which is already available in the US and Canada. The emergency service will be available in France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom in December, according to Apple.
The Galaxy S23 series, with a new design and the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 SoC, is expected to be released in February 2023. The flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra will most likely have a 200-megapixel camera and a brighter screen.
