The Samsung Galaxy S23 series could offer a satellite connectivity feature similar to that of the iPhone 14

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is likely to debut in February 2023. The company is likely to launch three premium Galaxy smartphones, namely the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra. We’re still a few months away from the rumored release timeline. Meanwhile, the rumor mill has started to reveal the key details of the S23 series. According to the latest leak, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series could borrow a feature from the iPhone 14. The South Korean tech giant is working to incorporate satellite connectivity as a feature of the upcoming Galaxy S23 series.

Samsung is reportedly working with Iridium Communications for the feature. The latter provides voice call and data communication services through 66 low-orbit satellites. Samsung has been working with Iridium Communications for the past two years, according to ET News.

The report further claims that Samsung is working on using the feature to provide text messaging and low-resolution image sharing support for the Galaxy S23 via satellite communications. That said, the antennas used for high-speed data and voice communication are large, and it’s hard to make a smaller one that’s as effective on phones.

Samsung is not the first brand to work on the satellite connectivity feature. Apple recently made the feature available on its iPhone 14 lineup. However, the service is only available in the US and Canada. Huawei is also said to be using Beidou’s satellites for the feature to send and receive limited text messages.

It would be interesting to see if Samsung manages to innovate the technology and introduce it to the S23 series. Another thing to consider would be the company’s ability to make the feature available to a broader set of users and not just a few countries.

While we wait for more details on that front, here’s a look at everything else that’s leaked about the Galaxy S23 series.
