The South Korean tech-giant Samsung has revealed that the company is going to include support for nine Indian languages on its Galaxy series of smartphones and tablets. According to the company, the support of the Indian languages will not just limited to user interface but users will also be able to see content in select applications in the Indian languages like Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi and Gujarati.
In its official press release, Samsung has noted that the first devices to receive the support for Indian languages will be Galaxy Grand, flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab 3. Other Galaxy smartphones and tablets will be included in the list later.
However there is no word on how exactly is the company planning to bring updated user interface to the Galaxy devices, but it is most likely to be done via a software update, so look for an update notification on your Galaxy devices. You will be able to enable a particular language by going to Settings and then Languages and Input.
The applications with local language support can be downloaded from the Samsung Apps store, which will house the updated versions of these apps. Popular applications like Bharat Matrimony, Ganesh speak, Indian property, Times of India, BSE, and Mydala amongst hundreds of other applications will soon be available in vernacular language for users. Customers can right away get experience in their own language by using ChatOn, Facebook, Gmail, and Newshunt on select Samsung devices, the company added in the press release.
