After Apple, Samsung will also bring emergency satellite connectivity to select Galaxy devices

One of Apple’s biggest announcements at their “Far Out” event, when they launched the iPhone 14 series, was the new emergency satellite connectivity feature they announced. There’s no doubt about it, but it was one of the biggest and most impactful new features that Apple added to its smartphones this year.

Looks like Samsung will follow suit and offer a similar feature.

As expected, major Android smartphone makers are also going to add this feature to their upcoming smartphones. We learned earlier this month that Google will soon enable this feature on Androidso manufacturers can put the necessary hardware in their devices, although we still don’t know if the upcoming Pixel 7 series will have this feature or not.

A recent report suggests that the South Korean tech giant is looking to bring the feature to its high-end smartphones by next year. In all likelihood, it will be limited to their flagship devices, so we can expect to see the feature first in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 series.

Meanwhile, some reports also claim that Huawei will also introduce the feature in the upcoming Mate 50 series. However, it should be noted that many countries have banned Huawei devices including network hardware and smartphones due to security concerns. , so it should be interesting to see how it plays out.

Samsung is tipped to partner with Elon Musk to bring this feature to Galaxy devices. Musk’s Starlink Satellite services are available in many countries and this would help the South Korean tech giant run smoothly.

Apple, on the other hand, has partnered with Globalstar for its Emergency SOS Satellite Connectivity feature and will start rolling out in Canada and the US by the end of this year. Other countries may start supporting the feature, depending on local governments, once certain legal obligations and requirements are met.
