Galaxy S23 series does not support satellite communication
Prior to this, Huawei and Apple successively released the Mate 50 series and iPhone 14 series smartphones. One of the highlights is the function of supporting satellite communication. The former supports the Beidou satellite, and the latter introduces the emergency SOS function through satellite communication. It is rumored that Samsung is also preparing to bring satellite communication functions to the Galaxy series of phones. With Qualcomm launching the Snapdragon Satellite at CES 2023, it seems inevitable that the Galaxy S23 series, which uses a customized second-generation Snapdragon 8 platform, will provide support.
Wccftech speculated that the hardware architecture of the Galaxy S23 series should be supported, but since the Snapdragon Satellite will not be launched in some regions until the second half of 2023, the specific charges are not clear. In addition, there is no direct cooperation between Samsung and Iridium Communications. Factors such as time, region, and pricing make Samsung temporarily abandon the introduction of satellite communication functions.
