[Editorial] The Journey to the Next Generation of Foldable Innovation Starts TodayShare open/close
Stephanie Choi, EVP & Head of Marketing at Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics discusses how this year’s Unpacked embrace the next normal and opens up the Galaxy experience to everyone both on and offline.
For over a decade, Samsung Galaxy Unpacked events have been the culmination of innovation, engineering and celebration — bringing together Galaxy community from all over the world to unveil the latest Samsung Galaxy innovations.
Since its inception in 2009, Unpacked has been more than just a new product launch. It’s an event that unites Samsung fans and recognizes the hard work from thousands of employees that goes into each new product. Samsung fans have tuned into Unpacked events to experience the next generation of Galaxy innovations that make up the true spirit of Samsung and push the mobile industry forward.
As the world opens up to new experiences, we are reimagining Unpacked through the lens of our Galaxy openness philosophy to match the creativity of our unparalleled new foldables. Our ambition is not just to innovate the new technologies but also to innovate our marketing approach. To accomplish this, we will ensure that the Galaxy experience is open to everyone.
I can’t wait to see how Galaxy community responds to new foldable launches. We will see you on August 10!
[SUMMARY OF TEASER CAMPAIGNS]
A Greater Galaxy Experience
Leading up to the next Unpacked experience, we’re launching the greater than campaign today that teases a world made greater than before with the imminent launch of the new foldable devices. The universal greater than symbol (>) represents how our foldables’ unique form factor doesn’t just change shape, they change how we interact with our devices.
Defying expectations of what smartphones are capable of yet again, Samsung is bringing new ways to work, play and capture life through this new series.
Bringing the Best of Hybrid
This year’s strategy embraces a new age of Unpacked. It takes the best of on and offline events and makes them even better.
Introducing new immersive and experiential event spaces that will allow consumers around the world to get hands-on and explore our products in a fun, creative, engaging and immersive setting.
The experience will take over spaces in the hearts of London’s Piccadilly Circus and New York’s Meatpacking District — two neighborhoods that match the energy and excitement of Samsung’s upcoming announcements. These events will unite Galaxy fans, journalists, partners, and Samsung employees from all over the world and allow them to explore the latest Samsung products and innovations like never before.
The Best Is “Yet to Come”
In a nod to our iconic product colorway Bora Purple, embracing diversity and optimism, we’re painting the town purple. Samsung and BTS will partner for an unmissable trans-Atlantic premier of ‘Yet to Come’ foldable video on August 10.
The full version of the video will premiere at 4 p.m. EDT in several popular districts, including in Times Square in New York, taking over these iconic destinations to show the new video on some of the biggest and most recognizable screens worldwide.
But that’s not all. We have so much in store for you, not to mention some amazing new products to show you — so stay tuned, it’s going to be one to remember.
