One UI 6.1 is about to make your Samsung Galaxy S23 a lot smarter


With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S24 phones, Samsung included a new exclusive set of AI tools in the form of Galaxy AI. If you happen to have an older flagship and don't want to upgrade, you won't have to. Samsung has confirmed that One UI 6.1 will roll out to its older phones on the 28th of March which will bring Galaxy AI to these devices.


At the moment, One UI 6.1 will be available for the Galaxy S23 phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 foldables, and the Galaxy Tab S9 series. The update will include Galaxy AI features like Circle to Search, Generative Edit that will give users an AI helping hand when it comes to photo editing, Live Translate, and also Chat Assist which you can use if you use the Samsung Keyboard app.


Unfortunately, there is no mention of older flagship phones from 2022. This includes the Galaxy S22. Chances are there might be hardware limitations that could prevent the use of AI on these devices. But it's not all bad news. Samsung's mobile chief recently suggested that the company is exploring the idea of a hybrid model that could potentially bring AI to older phones.


There's no guarantee yet, but there is some hope. Hopefully this hybrid model also means that we can see Galaxy AI make its way to entry and mid-range phones. In any case, if you own any of the devices mentioned above, watch out for the update on the 28th of March!
