Baidu has partnered with Lenovo, HONOR and Samsung Electronics to introduce AI features to smartphones using its powerful language model, Ernie AI (China’s ChatGPT). Together, these three brands make up at least 20% of the total Chinese smartphone market. This collaboration signifies a major advancement in incorporating AI into smartphones, promising to elevate user experiences to new heights. With this new tool, users will be able to generate texts and images within seconds, and it will also be seamlessly integrated into services like online shopping and travel booking.

Looking ahead, only 5% of smartphones worldwide are expected to have AI capabilities by 2024, but this number is projected to skyrocket to 47% by 2027. The new partnership firmly establish Baidu at the forefront of AI innovation in the smartphone industry.
