Now, the company has announced an update for compatible Galaxy devices, One UI 6.1. This new OS will bring Galaxy AI to more Galaxy devices beyond the S24 series.

The update will be available across the Galaxy S23 series, S23 FE, Z Fold5, Z Flip5, as well as Tab S9 Ultra, Tab S9+ and Tab S9 starting in late March. Aligning with the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, Samsung says that this update “elevates the standard of users’ mobile AI experience” through a hybrid approach that combines on-device and cloud-based AI.

“Our goal with Galaxy AI is not only to pioneer a new era of mobile AI, but also to empower users by making AI more accessible to all,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “This is only the beginning of Galaxy AI, as we plan to bring the experience to over 100 million Galaxy users within 2024 and continue to innovate ways to harness the unlimited possibilities of mobile AI.”
