One interesting feature of the Galaxy S24 Ultra is currently not available on other Android devices, including Samsung phones.
In January, around the same time as the Galaxy S24 series, Google unveiled its very useful AI feature, Circle to Search. However, the feature currently works on a limited number of Android devices, and according to Samsung, this may continue for the next few months.
In a press release focusing on sales of the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra, Samsung announced that the Circle to Search feature will be exclusive to the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Galaxy S24 series for most of 2024.
Samsung says Circle to Search may be available on other Android devices starting October 5, 2024 (around the time of the Pixel 9 launch). However, it also shows that there is no certainty at this time.
It seems unlikely that Samsung will release its next series of foldable phones, which will be unveiled in the summer of 2024, without Circle to Search. The same logic applies to the Pixel 8a, and it’s likely that the feature will be available much sooner.
Currently, most Circle to Search features are available on all Android devices and can be found in Google Lens. The important thing is that using Circle to Search makes searching much easier and faster.
