Samsung Galaxy AI Launch

If you’ve had the chance to use a Chinese variant of a smartphone, you may have noticed that they don’t come with any Google services. The main reason behind that is China’s internet censorship and surveillance practices. So, when Samsung announced Galaxy AI for the Galaxy S24 series that’s powered by Google, we had questions on whether they would be fully supported in Chinese devices.

Well, Samsung has confirmed that it won’t be ignoring the Chinese consumers on the Galaxy AI features of the Galaxy S24 series. So, the company is relying on Baidu’s AI model for offering the new features of the latest smartphones.

Well, a good number of functions of Samsung Galaxy AI does rely on Google’s Gemini Pro. That includes summarization, translation, and generation.
