While we’re still getting used to the AI potential of this year’s Samsung smartphones, a new report surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S25’s AI features is circulating online. If it turns out to be true, this year’s introduction of AI tools like Live Translate and Circle to Search with Google could be just the tip of the iceberg.

According to a report from the Korean publication Daum Herald Economy, via Android Authority, Samsung plans to utilize Google Gemini Nano 2 technology for the Galaxy S25 series, next year’s flagship Samsung phones. This information is reportedly courtesy of Samsung executive Cho Cheol-min’s presentation at this month’s Artificial Intelligence Semiconductor Forum. You don’t get a much more reliable source than that.

For those who don’t know, Google’s Gemini Nano is the tech giant’s most capable AI model, making the incredible Galaxy AI features of this year’s S24 Series possible. Gemini Nano 2 is the next generation of this innovative technology, which Google is yet to officially announce.

We’re probably more likely to see Gemini Nano 2 first with the Google Pixel 9 series, as the Google Pixel 8 Pro was the first to get Gemini Nano functionality, but if Google and Samsung continue to play nice as Android brands trying to combat Apple’s dominance, it makes sense to expect the S25 Series to arrive earlier next year with new Gemini Nano 2 powered features.

Outside of the collaboration with Google, Cheol-min also told the AISF audience that Samsung is planning on doubling its 200-strong Exynos AI department. While it’s just speculation, this could point to the Korean tech brand relying more on its own Exynos chipsets for AI functionality rather than any new Qualcomm Snapdragon SOC. Either way, we’ll keep an eye out for any updates from Samsung or Google relating to the future of smartphone AI.

There you have it, the news that Samsung is looking to power the Samsung Galaxy S25’s AI features with a little help from Gemini Nano 2.
