Satellite communication is one of the highlights of the iPhone 14🇧🇷 THE samsungin turn, is already preparing a similar solution for the line galaxy s23but not restricted to emergency requests (SOS), as it happens on the cell phone apple🇧🇷 That’s what the South Korean daily tells ETNews this Thursday (24).
The bet comes from the publication, which reports the presence of the feature on Samsung cell phones. In the news, the newspaper reports that the South Korean brand is working with Iridium Communications. Thus, the Galaxy S23 could connect to the network with more than sixty low-orbit satellites thanks to the partnership.
The resource should work in a more flexible way. At the iPhone 14for example, Apple allows the use of the function only to send distress calls in cases of emergency🇧🇷 The South Korean brand’s smartphones, on the other hand, tend to authorize the sending of text messages and low-resolution images over the new network.
Satellite signal may have more flexible use on S23
The usefulness, however, would not be so different between the two companies. After all, even when there is no 3G, 4G or 5G available in the vicinity, the satellite network will not offer such a fast connection. In addition, you will need to use your smartphone outdoors to get a signal from an Iridium satellite.
That is, the function would be more used in cases of need, even with the flexibility.
On the other hand, this implementation opens doors for other innovations in the future. And, who knows, an evolution of phones to connect with satellites for other functions, without depending on carrier antennas? This possibility is still a long way off, but it would be a welcome upgrade for those living in remote areas.
What to expect from the Galaxy S23?
There is little left for the launch of the Galaxy S23. The expectation is that Samsung maintains the revenue of recent years with the debut of three models: the conventional edition, Plus and Ultra. In common, all tend to bring Snapdragon 8 Gen 2🇧🇷
Batteries must also undergo minor changes. As exclusively reported by Technoblog, the Galaxy S23 and S23+ will gain a small capacity boost. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will have the same battery with 5,000 mAh.
Another improvement would be 200 megapixel camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra🇧🇷 For the rest, the trio tends to have high-end specifications, such as the screen with up to 120 Hz and the plentiful amount of RAM and storage.
The successors of the Galaxy S22 are expected to be presented in early 2023.
