Key moments from the Galaxy Unpacked event

(18:10) Together we have come through a period of challenge and of change. The past year transformed our lives in unexpected ways. The pandemic imposed boundaries on all of us, and technology became a lifeline. A bridge to a bigger world; a way to overcome closures and constraints, to bring all of us together. This journey is not yet over. At Samsung, we believe this moment requires a new way forward. A new era of openness has arrived, where technology works for us — not the other way around. — TM Roh, President, Head of Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics
(19:08) Samsung has never been more ready, because we innovate to defy barriers and make lives better. We create category firsts that redefine what your mobile devices can do, and more importantly, what you can do with them. We create tailored experiences that empower you, give you choice, even reflect your personality and unique way of life. And we make these experiences available for all, not for the select few. — TM Roh, President, Head of Mobile Division, Samsung
(24:44) Most people are happy with their standard smartphone experience. So why change a good thing? Well, when closed, the Galaxy Z Fold3 gives you the full benefits of a regular smartphone. But when you unfold, it brings you so much more. At 7.6 inches, Z Fold3’s main display delivers a tablet-like experience, all on a cinematic screen. — Conor Pierce, Vice President, Head of UK Mobile Division
(35:44) You, our consumers, inspire us to continue to challenge the limits of technology. With the addition of the S Pen to the Fold Series, we have introduced a whole new way of taking advantage of the Z Fold3’s larger display. And we have worked tirelessly to ensure that the experiences that you love and rely on [from] regular smartphones carry over to our foldables — water resistance and increased durability being key. Both the Fold3 and Flip3 have an IPX8 water resistance rating. That means they are protected from everyday water damage. It’s a first for foldable smartphones. And we are proud to be able to deliver that to you. — Dr. Wonjoon Choi, Executive Vice President, Head of Flagship Product R&D
(38:35) We’ve designed the Galaxy Z Flip3 to make a statement. It has a sleek body, and a compact design when closed, so you can easily fit it inside the back pocket of your jeans. And when it’s shut, you’ll see we’ve integrated the cover screen with the front camera, creating a truly seamless look. Once you’re ready to flip it open, you’ll have a simply iconic phone to show the world. — Christina Burton, Europe Marketing
(53:32) Galaxy Buds2 come with best-in-class Active Noise Canceling. ANC cuts external background noise by up to 98 percent, so you can really hear what you’re listening to. ANC is essential to an excellent listening experience, so we made sure you can enjoy a long-lasting battery on Buds2, even with a smaller form factor. With ANC on, your battery will last up to 5 hours. With ANC off, your battery will last up to 7.5 hours. — Leonie Brunnert Rego, Europe Marketing
(1:00:37) We applaud the joyful pioneers of the world who wish to make their mark and live by their values. Our open Galaxy ecosystem gives everyone access to more apps and more options. It delivers continuous, connected experiences across your devices, and it offers choices that put you in control of your preferences and privacy, because your personal data belongs to you. — Stephanie Choi, Senior Vice President, Head of Mobile Marketing
