Samsung recently mocked Apple about the iPhone 14 series after the Far Out event on September 7. The Korean giant even called Apple out for its “lack of innovation.” However, Samsung is now reportedly planning to introduce one of the features of the Apple iPhone 14 series in its upcoming flagship series.

According to a report from Gizmochina, Samsung may add satellite connectivity features to the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, which is expected to launch early next year. For those who don’t know, the satellite connection feature allows users to connect to the satellites and make an emergency call or send a message when there is no cellular connection.

Interestingly, this feature won’t be available until November and will only work in the US and Canada for now. However, there are rumors that Apple plans to bring the feature to other countries later this year.

It is worth noting that Huawei first introduced this feature with its Mate50 series, before Apple.

According to the Chinese company, Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro smartphones will allow users to send short text messages over China’s global BeiDou satellite network, enabling communication in areas without connectivity.

As for Apple, the company uses Globalstar’s network for its Emergency SOS feature on the iPhone 14 and future iPhones. It’s not certain which service Samsung will use, but it probably isn’t Globalstar, as Apple already has 85 percent of its current and future network capacity.
