Tech giant Samsung’s new flagship smartphone includes an AI-powered ‘Interpreter’ feature that allows for real-time translation of face-to-face conversations between speakers of different languages – literally a translator in one’s palm.
The Samsung Galaxy S24 processes the voice data on the device itself – cutting the need to send the data to the cloud, which can slow down translation and make for awkward conversations with lots of dead air. On-device processing is also theoretically better for data privacy, as the information remains on the phone and not uploaded to a cloud service.
