In China, The Samsung Galaxy S24 Uses Baidu’s AI “Ernie” Instead Of Google Gemini
Samsung has replaced Google’s Gemini with its “Galaxy AI” software in the Chinese market.
According to CNBC, Baidu, a Chinese company, will provide “Ernie” for Samsung’s Galaxy S24, which will handle all the heavy lifting for its Galaxy AI software (via The Verge). According to reports, the bot is Baidu’s “response” to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which has amassed more than 100 million users.
Ernier will “translate content and summarise lengthy content into clear, intelligently organised formats,” the startup said in a statement.
According to Baidu, its chatbot can also respond to users in a “humanlike” manner. The business unveiled Ernie 4.0 in October, calling it the “most powerful” iteration of the chatbot since it was first introduced in November 2022. According to the publication, the programme can also reason and grasp other things.
Furthermore, according to The Verge, Baidu enhances the S24’s real-time call translation functionality in conjunction with a Google Circle search variant.
According to CNBC, Samsung’s persistent withdrawal from the Chinese smartphone market may have contributed to the decision to ditch Google. According to reports, the Korean OEM allowed Apple to take the top rank since it was not included in the list of the top 5 phone manufacturers in the area.
According to a 2019 report, Samsung underperformed in a few areas, which has been a frequent trend for the corporation for a while.
Samsung’s Galaxy AI will be powered by Google’s AI model Gemini for customers in other locations. Similar to Google’s Magic Editor, the app offers capabilities like “Chat Assist” for real-time translations. Users were previously informed via Samsung’s software teasers that Galaxy AI will have powerful on-device capabilities in addition to features that are exclusively accessible through cloud-based services (which require an internet connection).
Samsung is getting ready to start charging customers for the Galaxy AI features that will soon be available on older phones (apart from the S22).
