"The AltZLife feature will be available to the existing as well as new users of Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51 through a software update on August 10, 2020", Samsung said in a statement.

Samsung on Tuesday said that the pre-booking notifications for its 'Make in India Galaxy Note 20 smartphone crossed more than 5 Lakh this year, which is more than double the figure the company achieved last year with Galaxy Note10. For example, a consumer can easily move between the normal Gallery and a private Gallery; or from a normal WhatsApp to private WhatsApp with a simple double click of the power button.

According to Samsung, the all-new AltZLife is a feature that is designed for users who are looking for greater privacy on their devices. All private versions of these apps are secured by Samsung Knox in the Secure Folder of these phones. The update included features like the Single Take camera mode, a better Pro mode, Quick Share, Music Share, and much more. This is not the first time we're hearing about the company bringing "Make in India" AI-based features. It has been built by a team of young engineers at Samsung R&D Institutes in Bangalore and Noida using insights from consumer research.

Whereas, if they carry out the action on home screen or app drawer, the phone will launch the Secure Folder.

Mr Putin said the vaccine had passed all the required checks , adding that his daughter had already been given it. He also said that " none of them had serious complications " after receiving the vaccine.

The Galaxy Note20 is now up for pre-orders in India priced at Rs. 77,999. And passing Samsung's post, it appears like the function is restricted to Indian users just.

AltZLife has two components, i.e. Quick Switch is useful even if the application does not have dual instances in Private and Normal mode. In this, the on-device AI-powered engine automatically suggests users move private images of pre-selected categories to the Secure Folder.

Quick Switch provides an authentication-protected secondary private profile, accessed via a double press of the power button, and Samsung claims it also works directly inside apps like Gallery and WhatsApp, though it sounds like it may not work the same with all apps.

When switching from private to normal mode, no authentication is required.
