Apple recently officially unveiled its iPhone 14 series phones. Simultaneously with the introduction of these handsets, an emergency feature known as satellite connection was also unveiled. Apparently, with the help of this feature, iPhone users can communicate with satellites and make emergency calls if there is no mobile phone network coverage. Huawei also unveiled a similar feature by introducing Mate 50 series smartphones. Now it looks like Samsung will also add satellite connectivity to its upcoming Galaxy devices.
According to a leaker named Ricciolo, Samsung may be planning to introduce a satellite connection feature to its upcoming Galaxy devices. It is not yet clear whether this emergency feature will be available in the Galaxy S23 series smartphones. As mentioned earlier; With the release of the iPhone 14 series, Apple unveiled the ability to connect to satellite. It is interesting to note that this feature will not be available until November. Currently, this feature will only be available in Canada and the United States. However, according to some rumors, Apple plans to introduce this feature in other countries at the end of this year.
It is worth noting that Huawei unveiled this feature before Apple by introducing its Mate 50 series. According to the announcement of the Chinese company, the Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro smartphones provide Chinese users with the ability to send short text messages through the BeiDou global satellite network. This feature allows communication in areas without mobile network coverage.
Apple’s Emergency SOS feature in the iPhone 14 series and future iPhones of this company uses the Globalstar network. It is not yet clear which service Samsung will use for its future products. However, the Korean giant will probably not use the Globalstar network; Because Apple owns 85% of the current and future capacity of the network.

Of course, it should be noted that the feature of satellite connection for Samsung handsets is only a rumor and the Korean company has not yet officially confirmed any details in this regard. However, it is expected that more details will be released in the coming days.
