Hello Dear Friends welcome back to resultcorner in this article we are talking about In this article we are talking about Samsung Might Also Planning Satellite Connectivity Feature. Satellite phones are designed specifically for telephonic communications, meaning that most allow you to make and receive calls — and that’s about it.
However, newer models are coming out with access to Internet in certain “hotspots” and the capability to send and receive text messages. Their signals will usually bypass local telecoms systems, hindering censorship and wiretapping attempts, which has led some intelligence agencies to believe that satellite phones aid terrorist activity.
Even with cellular phone outages, satellite phones will still work and are unaffected by the outage. Most satellite phones also have awesome battery packs that does not easily run out, so it really is a reliable communication tool. User-Friendly – satellite phones are not as complicated as regular phones.
However, it is unclear if this emergency feature will be available on the Galaxy S23 smartphones, citing tipster, GizmoChina reported on Saturday. After Apple, Samsung might also be working on a Satellite connectivity SOS feature, and we might see this feature in its future smartphones.
Samsung Might Also Planning Satellite Connectivity Feature
As mentioned, Apple introduced the satellite connectivity feature with the iPhone 14 series. Interestingly, this feature will not be available until November and it will work only in the US and Canada for now. However, rumors are rife that Apple plans to bring the feature to other countries as soon as later this year.
It’s worth noting that Huawei introduced this feature first with its Mate50 series, before Apple. As per the Chinese company, Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro smartphones will allow users to send short text messages via China’s global BeiDou satellite network, allowing for communication in areas without connectivity.
With the help of this feature, users can apparently establish a connection with the satellites and do an emergency call when there is no cellular signal coverage.
The satellite connectivity of the Apple iPhone 14 series will only be available for users in the US and Canada. It will go live for the users starting November this year and the service will be free for two years. There are chances that the feature will roll out in more countries later this year.
Apple explained that with this feature, your smartphone could connect with the satellites and creates the ability to make an emergency call even if that area has no cellular signal coverage.
Besides, this feature will also require a partnership with a satellite company, as Apple has partnered with the satellite company Globalstar and also for this feature, the company has invested millions of dollars.
Currently, there is no other detail available about its arrival, like when it will arrive, but I think that the company also wants to accomplish it very soon due to competition.
A report by PhoneArena reveals that instead of going to Apple’s satellite connection provider, Samsung is likely to turn to Elon Musk for the feature, whose Starlink satellite service is now live in some locations.
Starlink was apparently in talks with Apple for the emergency feature, but Apple decided to go ahead with Globalstar. Reportedly, in its recent SEC filing, Globalstar reported that it will “provide 85 percent of its current and future network capacity” to the Cupertino-based tech giant, Apple.
