Yes, the bezels are slimmer. Yes, the screen is flat. And yes: the Pen … still has an S in front of it. But if you’re looking for excitement in smartphones (at least those without a hinge), software is where it’s at these days – and that’s why Samsung has chosen to pitch its newest, most-expensive bar-type Galaxy … as an “AI Phone.”

Yeah, the buzzword I managed to mostly avoid at this year’s CES in Las Vegas finally caught up with me at Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Jose – and here’s the thing: AI does actually make it easier to get excited about this year’s Galaxy Ultra. The only question is … for how long.
