Samsung Galaxy S23 Series Could Get Satellite Connectivity, Thanks to Iridium

Published Date:

Samsung appears to be ready to take another cue from Apple and follow in the footsteps of the American corporation when it comes to delivering satellite connectivity to smartphones. In addition to Samsung reportedly working with Iridium to offer satellite communications to the Galaxy S23 family, Apple has its Emergency SOS function that utilises satellite on the iPhone 14 & iPhone 14 Pro lines. This feature is made possible by a cooperation between Apple and Globalstar.

Know about Iridium

Iridium is a 66-satellite constellation that delivers communication and data services from low-Earth orbit. Since the Galaxy S23 family will reportedly be released, there are rumours that you will be able to send text messages as well as small photos (in the hundreds of kbps) via satellite. Samsung has been working for the past two years to overcome the technical challenges of trying to bring satellite communications to smartphones, and it looks like it has finally succeeded.

Where and How it works

The key issue was to miniaturise the antenna so that it could be put into a typical smartphone without increasing its size, as you might have thought if you’ve ever seen a dedicated satellite phone.

Given the small land area and extensive 5G coverage in Korea, Samsung doesn’t anticipate this feature to be popular there. However, it believes that , China, Europe, North & South America and Russia could see significant adoption of this feature, particularly in areas with less developed infrastructure.

Galaxy S23 is expected

The Galaxy S23 series is expected to ship in the first week of February and will reportedly only feature a higher binned version of Qualcomm’s recently released Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU.
