Samsung looks set to follow in Apple’s footsteps again, as apparently the Samsung Galaxy S23 family, which could include three models, namely Galaxy S23+, Galaxy S23 Ultra, and Galaxy S23, would bring satellite communication features. . With the launch of this Galaxy S23 series, possibly early next year, users will be able to send messages using satellite connectivity, reports suggest. Moreover, it is said that this was planned two years ago and it seems that the plan is on the right track. Samsung may launch it in North and South America, Russia, China and Europe at first and other countries after proper model development.
According to reports, it comes to life through a partnership with McLean-based Iridium, a 66-unit Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation that provides voice and data services. Likewise, Apple has teamed up with Globalstar to instill an emergency SOS feature in the iPhone 14 Pro. Huawei uses Beidou satellites to offer similar services to Huawei Mate 50 Pro series users.
According to previous leaks and rumors, the Galaxy S23 family will use a higher version of Qualcomm’s recently released Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It could be released the first week of February next year. It is also speculated that the Galaxy S23 will be backed by a 3,900mAh battery with 25W fast charging. It may also have triple rear cameras with a 200MP main sensor along with its satellite coverage features.
It will be interesting to see the use of satellite network communication in the Samsung S23 family and how users find it advantageous or different from other models that use territorial communication services. But there is a major challenge associated with making satellite phones. A miniature size antenna should be added without interfering with the size of the model.
