Samsung and Google Cloud announce a new multi-year partnership to bring Google Cloud’s generative AI technology to Samsung smartphone users worldwide. The Galaxy S24 Series, launched today at Galaxy Unpacked in San Jose, California, is the first smartphone to feature Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI.
“Google and Samsung share a common vision of making technology more helpful and accessible for everyone. We are excited that the Galaxy S24 Series is the first smartphone with Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI,” said Janghyun Yoon, Corporate EVP and Head of Software Office of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “The Google Cloud and Samsung teams collaborated to deliver the best Gemini-powered AI experience on Galaxy.”
Gemini Pro on Vertex AI is the first Google Cloud product to be deployed to consumers by Samsung. Gemini is a multimodal generative AI that can understand, operate across, and combine different types of information such as text, code, images, and video. Users can use the summarization feature across Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard in Samsung-native applications. Gemini Pro on Vertex AI also provides Samsung with Google Cloud’s security, safety, privacy, and data compliance features.
Users can also enjoy Imagen 2, Google’s latest text-to-image diffusion technology from Google DeepMind. With Imagen 2 on Vertex AI, Samsung can offer safe and intuitive photo-editing capabilities to users. These features are available in Generative Edit in S24’s Gallery application.
Samsung is also one of the first customers to test Gemini Ultra, Google’s largest and most capable model for complex tasks. The Galaxy S24 Series also uses Gemini Nano, an on-device LLM that is part of the Android 14 operating system.
“With Gemini, Samsung’s developers can leverage Google Cloud’s world-class infrastructure, performance, and flexibility to deliver safe, reliable, and engaging generative AI-powered applications on Samsung smartphone devices,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud.
