Samsung seemly give chase to the two companies that already possess satellite connectivity…..! Apple and Huwai have already adapted the technology before then bit time passed, Now our Korean tech giant is up way. Samsung will no doubt debut the satellite connectivity options in its Galaxy phones to compete, encounter to tipster Ricciolo tweet.
Apple made a big complexion in the case, although the source mentioned that it has limited the new feature under the domestic territory of certain countries, the United States and Canada. Intentionally Apple made the fans curious and has ambitious plans to bring the feature to other countries as soon as later this year. As same, China’s Huawei has launched the Mate 50 smartphone series that allows users to send text messages via satellite communication.
Emergency SOS via satellite connectivity feature:
Now the question arises what could be the facts, and What is the arresting feature of the satellite connectivity, for Samsung being adapting? Emergency SOS via satellite enables messaging with emergency services when outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. You’ll be able to reach emergency services regardless of cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. Satellite connectivity can also be used to share your location with friends and family via Find My.
Satellite connectivity will take 15 seconds to send a simple SOS message in clear sky conditions, or several minutes during overcast. Still, the availability of satellite connectivity on your phone will become the norm in the future, and Samsung wouldn’t want to be left behind. As to whose service it would use, this remains a mystery.
Back to the Samsung narration, Samsung may have to turn to another satellite connectivity provider. In its recent SEC filing, Globalstar reported that it will “provide 85% of its current and future network capacity” to Apple. And will be reporting record revenues as a result. So we doubt there will be a place for Samsung’s Galaxy birds to land on that particular perch anymore. Because apple leans on the vast network of Globalstar for its emergency SOS feature on the iPhone 14 and future iPhones.
Samsung in the same context will rather turn to Elon Musk, whose Starlink satellite service has already been in talks with Apple. Even though the team from Cupertino ultimately went with Globalstar. There is another factor Starlink, is in a brouhaha with the aspiring 5G network carrier DISH which hogs a bunch of 12GHz spectrum and wants to use it for terrestrial 5G network deployment.
Ok so, we can conclude the topic, while Samsung will assuredly volumetric launch the new feature in the Galaxy devices. As for now, the companies will be investing millions in new Globalstar satellites to maintain and expand the service. So hopefully, it will become more full-featured down the ground.
