I'm actually not clear on what is meant by "cloud-based," what exactly does that mean?

Some of the AI features are handled on device, with no need for an Internet connection. Some of them, especially some of photo editing features, require an Internet connection and the edits are processed on the servers and then downloaded to the device. In other words, most of the work for those particular features is being done by servers that are in the cloud, not on your device. I suspect these would be the features that might become paid features, as they require Samsung or Google or whomever to do the heavy lifting with their servers.

Looks like that fine print in the original post is now gone on Samsung's product page..?
I too have pre-ordered and am worried that I am buying something that I will get charged for after a year...
Was there any clarification?

It will be like Google Pixel 8 with magic editor, packaged as a Ai subscription service for Google One users, no worries, free then pay if you want it, some are calling this complimentary marketing tactic a good move.

free Ai is already been added- Google assistant anyone, paid subscription Ai is next !

For Samsung Ai , No doubt paid through Samsung Wallet app.

I heard Samsung is going to start charging a monthly fee for the AI on their cell phones. It said at the end of 2025 right on their website (fine print), however even so these ultra phones are $1200 plus. And for them to even think it's a good idea to drain the customer pockets even more to use the features of the phone is unbelievable. I will be definitely switching phone manufacturers if that's the case.
