The S24 series introduced Galaxy AI, then Samsung rolled it out to the 2023 flagships – that brought the AI features to some 100 million users. But there’s more, Samsung has now confirmed that it will also update the 2022 flagship devices (phones, foldables and tablets).

The devices that will be getting Galaxy AI are the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 foldable phones, and the Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets. This isn’t to say that these are the only older devices that will be getting it, only the ones that are confirmed for now.

Galaxy AI will arrive as part of the One UI 6.1 update for these devices and will include the full list of features: Circle to Search with Google, Chat Assist, Interpreter, Live Translate, Note Assist, Transcript Assist, Browsing Assist, Generative Edit, Edit Suggestion and AI-Generated Wallpaper.

Samsung says that the rollout will start in early May. As a reminder, the Galaxy AI features will be free to use until the end of 2025. It’s not clear what features will become premium or how much they will cost.

Interestingly, a moderator on the Samsung Community Forums in Korea posted that the 2022 devices will get Galaxy AI and that has proven to be correct. The moderator also claimed that some 2021 models will get a limited selection of features – the Galaxy S21 series and the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 will only receive Circle to Search and Magic Rewrite. That hasn’t been confirmed by an official Samsung press release so we’ll have to wait and see.


Pokdepinion: They definitely need to bring it to more devices soon, especially if they are planning to make it a premium feature in the future. The more data the AI can learn from, the better it will perform. Of course, I still wouldn’t expect it to pop up for literally every single Samsung device however, maybe just the newer ones.
