Get ready for an AI revolution: Google hands off AI torch to Samsung with One UI 6.1 featuring Pixel 8’s AI wallpapers on Galaxy phones

Samsung’s Galaxy phones are about to get a major AI boost! Google’s AI torch has been passed to Samsung as leaked images of the upcoming One UI 6.1 update reveal the adoption of generative AI wallpapers for Galaxy phones. This move seems to be inspired by Google’s Pixel 8 series, which flaunts the ability to create personalized AI wallpapers. The leaked images, courtesy of @BennettBuhner on X, show the seamless and easy operation of generative AI wallpapers, which will allow for a unique wallpaper every time on Galaxy phones.

The One UI 6.1 update, riding on the coattails of Android 14, is set to introduce a slew of new features, with a focus on AI. The upcoming update will also bring weather effects on the lock screen, a spiffy editor akin to Google’s Magic Editor, and an “Auto Format” for notes, among other goodies.

The AI revolution doesn’t stop there. The upcoming Galaxy S24 series is poised to offer a variety of AI features, including live translation during calls and the debut of Samsung’s generative AI model, Gauss. One UI 6.1 is expected to drop soon and will likely grace the Galaxy S24 series right from the get-go. Additionally, leaks hint at a battery-preserving feature tucked into One UI 6.1, ensuring that Galaxy handsets stay juiced up and ready for action.

The introduction of generative AI wallpapers and other AI features in the One UI 6.1 update could mark the beginning of Samsung’s AI revolution, making the Galaxy phones even more advanced and user-friendly. Stay tuned for more updates on the exciting AI developments coming to Samsung’s Galaxy phones!
