Samsung may follow Apple’s lead and integrate satellite communications into the Galaxy S23 series.
According to the most recent rumors, Samsung is already working with a North American satellite communications company to assign more of this functionality to the new top of the range.

One of the great novelties of the iPhone 14 Pro models is satellite communications, which, for now, are available in only a few countries in the world. The Chinese Huawei has also included this feature in its Mate 50.
Now it seems that Samsung wants to follow the example of its rivals and also include satellite communications in its new series of smartphones Galaxy S23.
The information arrives through the South Korean publication Etnews, which advances that the South Korean giant intends to integrate this functionality with the aim of sending low-capacity text messages and images through the satellite network.
According to the same source, Samsung is already working with the North American company Iridium, specialist in the field of satellite communications, to overcome the challenges that this functionality imposes on smartphone manufacturers.
It should be noted that Iridium provides voice and data communication services in outer space, using a system of 66 communication satellites in low earth orbit.
According to the publication Etnews, Samsung has already managed to overcome some obstacles. Namely, all the challenges involving the RF antenna are already solved, as well as the technology needed to integrate modems for mobile and satellite communication to process digital data.
For its part, Samsung has not made any comment on this topic, of course. Now we can only wait until February 2023 to confirm the integration of this functionality in the Galaxy S23 series and to see if satellite communications, in this case, will be available globally, or in just a few countries as happened with Apple.
