True innovations don’t just evolve with the world — they help shape it. To create the devices that push us ahead, rewrite the future and bring light to the dark, we must continue to break the rules of what is possible with a smartphone.
On Feb. 9, Samsung hosted a Galaxy Unpacked virtual event to do just that — setting an epic new standard for smartphones with the most noteworthy S series ever created, the Galaxy S22.
The world has changed in ways that were unimaginable a mere two years ago. Those changes have transformed the business world too. Mobility and connectivity have become more important than ever before. Using technology to facilitate collaboration and cohesion among teams has gone from a matter of importance, to nothing less than mission critical for businesses, large and small.
Responding to these changes, Samsung unveiled its latest mobile innovations at a Galaxy Unpacked virtual event. Insights from the past two years are firmly embedded into the designs of the Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy Tab S8 series — especially in how they support the new ways that teams across the world are working together.
Watch the full replay of the Galaxy Unpacked event above, and read on for highlights of the February 9 event and the all-new Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8.
Key moments from the Galaxy Unpacked event
Technology to drive positive change: “After two years of unprecedented challenges, our world has changed. Our ways of working, living, connecting with one another, our personal values and our responsibilities to each other, and society have changed. In our new world, technology has helped in ways we never expected, enhancing connection, creating positive change and helping all of us build a better future. We believe that technological progress and social progress are intertwined.” — TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business
UN Development Programme partnership: “It is clear that technology is a driving force behind driving the connections in our daily lives, and also in shaping our collective future. Technology can enable us to be better equipped to propel progress. It is with those innovative principles in mind that we have partnered with Samsung to create the Global Goals app. Together, we’ve inspired people throughout the world to learn about the global goals, and to take action on them.” — Achim Steiner, Administrator, UN Development Programme
Meet Galaxy S22: “It’s the ultimate smartphone — to rewrite the rules of innovation. To make your everyday epic. Empowering people to build a more inclusive future. That future begins right now, as we welcome a new season of innovation.” — TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business
S Pen is embedded: “Last year, we opened up a new world of possibilities for the S Series, making it compatible with the S Pen. Now, this is the first S series ever to feature an embedded S Pen. The S Pen helps your work and create more efficiently and with more detail than ever before. With a 3x more responsive display to the S Pen, we enhanced our AI based point prediction software. So your writing and drawing will be smoother than ever.” — Drew Blackard, VP, US Mobile Product Management
A truly professional camera: “Epic moments happen around the clock, and dim lighting should never hold you back. The S22 helps you capture every moment. Pro mode represents a truly professional camera experience that even an amateur can take advantage of. Adjust shutter speed, ISO, manual focus and more. Extend these powerful capabilities to all the devices’ lenses, including the telephoto lenses which allows 10x optical zoom. For true pros, the Expert Raw app opens up the whole camera system, giving you full control of the thing. With access to all of the meta data, you can even edit right on the device with Adobe Light Room. And when you want to edit on your PC, the Galaxy Ecosystem makes it incredibly easy.” — Won-Joo Choi, EVP Head of Flagship Product R&D
Introducing Galaxy Tab S8: “The Galaxy Tab S8 is more than just a tablet — it’s an idea vault, a canvas, a video editing tool and a productivity machine. It’s hard to believe a tablet can be this powerful, but the Tab S8 truly is. … For multitaskers, Samsung DeX and the compatible Keyboard Cover transforms the Tab S8 into a true laptop experience. It also works seamlessly with Windows PCs, so it’s easy to connect the tablet as a second, wireless monitor that is also a touch screen. … This tablet will help you bring your biggest ideas to life.” — Danielle E. Moten, New Computing Product Management
A trusted security platform: “Contrary to the misconception, openness and security can coexist. Knowing that you’ll always be protected by the world’s most trusted security platforms, you’ll have full control over your personal data and digital experiences. We stand by three core principles — protection, transparency and choice. We’re committed to keeping your data secure at all times, constantly adding layers of protection. We respect what you’re willing to share, or not — and will follow your lead. We live up to these principles and will never waver on a promise, because trust means everything.” — Stephanie Choi, EVP, CMO of MX Business
