New Samsung Galaxy S24 Series now available in Canada, promising a new beginning with Galaxy AI

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Jan. 31, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Samsung Electronics Canada today announced that the new Samsung Galaxy S24 Series, including the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S24+ and Samsung Galaxy S24 are now available for purchase at Samsung Experience Stores, online at samsung.com/ca, on the Samsung Shop App, and at select national retail and carrier partners across Canada.

“Together with Galaxy AI, the latest Galaxy S devices mark a new era in everyday mobile innovation,” said Raj Doshi, Head of Mobile Business at Samsung Electronics Canada. “With all-new ways to connect, search, create and play, the Galaxy S24 Series harnesses the power of AI to create human-centered experiences, igniting new possibilities”

New Ways To Connect: Breaking Down Barriers
Live Translate1 on the Galaxy S24 Series enable seamless communication with two-way, real-time voice and text translations of phone calls within the native phone app. This means users can chat with a student or colleague in various languages or book a reservation while on vacation in another country – no third-party apps required. In addition, the new Note Assist2 feature in Samsung Notes creates a brief preview of your note with AI-generated summaries making it easier to find what you’re looking for. And, for voice recordings, Transcript Assist3 uses AI and Speech-to-Text technology to transcribe, summarize and even translate recordings even when there are multiple speakers.

New Ways To Search: Partnering To Revolutionize the Mobile Search Framework
Circle to Search4 with Google on the Galaxy S24 Series marks a milestone in the history of search as Samsung’s first phone to debut intuitive, gesture-driven search functionality. With a long press on the home button, you can circle, highlight, scribble on, or tap anything on the screen of your Galaxy S24 Series device to see helpful search results.

New Ways To Create: Boosting Content Creation With Enhanced Camera Features
Powered by an all-new ProVisual Engine5, the Galaxy S24 Series maximizes creative freedom with a wide-ranging suite of AI tools. Users can now take advantage of Galaxy’s native camera experiences on their favorite social media apps. The power of AI also extends to video, where users can create and watch videos in Instant Slow-mo, even if they didn’t film it that way. Or, they can use Dual Recording to create 4K vlogs utilizing the front and rear cameras at the same time. And thanks to upgraded Nightography capabilities, photos and videos are brilliant in low light conditions, even when zoomed in. After great shots are captured, innovative Galaxy AI editing tools enable users to make simple edits like erase, re-compose, and remaster photos. Now, Galaxy S24 Series users can produce pro-quality content without additional equipment.

New Ways To Play: Optimal Mobile Gaming Experiences Through Powerful Performance
The latest AI features call for innovative chip technology. That’s why the Galaxy S24 series is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform for Galaxy. With this, the Galaxy S24 Series offers superior usability and faster and smoother gameplay6 alongside Ray Tracing for a more immersive gaming experience. And, thanks to Galaxy AI, the Galaxy S24 series’ battery performance is optimized for extra-long gaming sessions.

Sustainability and More: Samsung’s Vision for a Sustainable Future
For the first time in a Galaxy device, the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s battery features a minimum of 50% recycled cobalt7, while all the magnets in the speaker are made from 100% recycled neodymium8. Additionally, every Galaxy S24 Series device is packaged in 100% recycled paper. Looking forward, Samsung aims to incorporate at least one recycled material in every module of all mobile products by 2030, as part of ongoing sustainability efforts.

Empowering User Choice and Trust With Advanced Security and Privacy
Secured by Samsung Knox, Galaxy’s defense-grade, multi-layer security platform, the Galaxy S24 Series safeguards critical information and protects against vulnerabilities with end-to-end secure hardware, real-time threat detection and collaborative protection. Galaxy S24 Series users have full control over how much they allow their data to enhance AI experiences, through Advanced Intelligence settings which can disable online processing of data for AI features9.
