Throughout the years, Samsung Electronics has continually led innovation within the mobile industry — and this year was no exception. Following the release of the highly coveted Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 foldables, Galaxy S23 series smartphones and Galaxy Watch6 series, Samsung has engaged in a variety of global marketing initiatives aimed at bringing users closer together. Samsung Newsroom has handpicked a selection of these creative campaigns that have truly captivated the imagination and resonated with consumers around the world.
The Intricacies of Nature Captured Using Galaxy’s Powerful Camera
[Argentina] Showcasing Nature Through a Galaxy Mini Documentary
Samsung teamed up with National Geographic to release “Epic Nature,” a captivating mini documentary shot using the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The film captured the stunning and diverse wildlife inhabiting Cuenca Los Ojos, a biological reserve in Sonora, Mexico. Utilizing the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s incredible high-definition 200MP camera, the documentary recorded the smallest details of the wildlife reserve, rendering breathtakingly vivid imagery. Additionally, Nightography mode allowed filmmakers to shoot seldom-seen nocturnal animals — such as jaguars, black bears and ocelots in low-light environments — giving audiences a rare glimpse into the lives of creatures that are active at night.
[Europe] Monitoring and Protecting Wildlife With Galaxy
In Europe, Samsung has joined forces with Africam and the Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit to create the “Wildlife Watch” program in 2021. This initiative harnesses the cutting-edge technology of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra to monitor wildlife and combat poaching at the Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa. Viewers can alert rangers of danger and aid in conservation efforts through 24-hour live streams of wildlife in the savannah. Thanks to their advanced recording features and Nightography mode, the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra are protecting animals and keeping them out of the hands of poachers.
Prioritizing Health and Wellbeing With Galaxy
[Netherlands] A Night of Restful Sleep With Galaxy Watch6
Samsung Benelux organized the first-ever Sleep Rave event at the Hotel Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands. During the Sleep Rave, participants wore the Galaxy Watch6 and listened to an eight-hour DJ set specially designed for sleep — by Mr. Belt & Wezol, Dutch DJ duo, and Dr. Els van der Helm, a sleep expert and neuroscientist. Samsung analyzed participants’ sleep patterns — including sleep stages and regularity — using the sleep coaching feature on the Galaxy Watch6 to gain new insights on how music impacts sleep quality. The gained insights were used by the DJ Duo and Dr. Els van der Helm to create the ultimate sleep track, which is now available on Spotify.

Showcasing the Capabilities of Galaxy Nightography
[Germany] Capturing the Beauty of the Night With Nightography
To give German creatives a new way to capture their city, Samsung organized a smartphone photo contest earlier this year in collaboration with German photography magazine FOTOTEST. After receiving submissions from nearly 800 individuals, five finalists were selected to participate in the final round — the ultimate nightography competition using the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The finalists’ photos each captured distinct scenes at night in extraordinary detail and clarity, highlighting the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s impressive Night Mode functionality.

In support of eco-conscious movements within the fashion industry, the Galaxy Z Flip5 was donned by models on the runway during Colombia Fashion Week.

To emphasize this message, models wearing Guarnizo’s designs performed in an upbeat flash mob with the Galaxy Z Flip5 before engaging with visitors directly at the Galaxy Z Flip5 booth. Samsung’s collaboration with Guarnizo at Colombia Fashion Week highlighted the importance of environmental sustainability, underscoring Samsung’s use of recycled materials like discarded fishing nets and plastic bottles in its device components.
