Samsung to announce new phones ‘powered by AI’ on Jan. 17

Samsung recently announced it will host a news conference in San Jose, California, on Jan. 17 where it will unveil its newest Galaxy phones.

Samsung is Apple’s largest smartphone competitor. The company has a 20% share of the global smartphone market, compared with Apple’s 16% share, according to Counterpoint Research. Meanwhile, Samsung has a 25% share of the U.S. phone market, behind Apple’s 53% share. New features that aren’t available on the iPhone could help it attract more customers.

Samsung said Tuesday evening its latest devices will offer an “all-new mobile experience powered by AI.” While it’s unclear what that means, recent announcements from chipmakers like Qualcomm and competitors like Google may provide some context.
