the line iphone 14launched in September of this year, brought the “SOS de Emergência” feature, which allows sending messages via satellite in urgent situations to alert the nearest authorities. Now it looks like the samsung also intend to insert something similar in the line Galaxy S23 to increase public receptivity.
Feature under development
According to information from etnewsa samsung is working on developing a satellite communication feature for all models in the range Galaxy S23🇧🇷 To make it viable, the company must establish a partnership with Iridium, which has 66 low-orbit satellites for data transmission.
However, unlike the solution offered by apple that only allows the sending of text messages, the service of the next flagships of samsung can deliver the possibility of sharing small images (in the range of kbps).
According to the publication on the South Korean website, the biggest challenge faced by the company was to miniaturize the technology needed to send information via satellite, especially the antenna used in this type of transmission. Fortunately, it looks like this step has been completed successfully.
In any case, we will have to wait for more information about the line Galaxy S23 to confirm (or not) all this. It is worth remembering that the models should also bring a more powerful version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a camera of up to 200 megapixels and a standardized design. If all goes as expected, they could launch in the first quarter of 2023.
