I am just wondering if anyone knows if with android 14, Samsung will enable the Satellite communication capabilities built into the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Processesor? 

If it doesn't, it feels like Samsung has wasted some of the potential of the processor, especially as Google has now started preparing messages for this.

@manu08manu: Earlier this year, Samsung announced that it had developed it's own 5G NTN tech that enabled 2 way communication between smartphones and satellites. As our latest flagship devices contain the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor, which supports Snapdragon Satellite, the options are certainly there, however I don't have any further information to share from this position. I think it's a case of 'watch this space' at this stage, as we will likely see this rolled out in future devices.
