[Galaxy Unpacked 2023] Samsung Displays a Unique Lifestyle Experience at Flip Side Market SeongsuShare open/close
“Experience the ‘flip side’ with Galaxy.”
At this year’s Galaxy Unpacked held at COEX in Seoul on July 26, Samsung Electronics unveiled a new product lineup that signaled the next era of innovation — from the upgraded Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 to the Galaxy Watch6 series and Galaxy Tab S9 series.
Encouraging users to join the flip side and explore the possibilities of Galaxy, Samsung opened a Galaxy Studio in the Seongsu neighborhood of Seoul on July 28. This year’s Galaxy Studio enables visitors to explore the latest devices through Flip Side Market, “a lifestyle market that showcases mobile experiences unique to Galaxy.” Samsung Newsroom traveled to the Seongsu Galaxy Studio to experience the Flip Side Market locations firsthand.
Flip Side Market Seongsu is situated in three different spaces around Seongsu, each distinctly themed. Visitors begin their journey at Flip Side Market The Garden with the Innovation Monument of Galaxy foldables. Then, they can explore the new Galaxy products across the street at Flip Side Market Seongsu, the main experience hub resembling a marketplace.
Notably, Flip Side Market The Garden and Flip Side Market Seongsu will carry the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 for guests to try out. The last stop is Flip Side Market DOOR to Seongsu, where guests can purchase special dessert merchandise in collaboration with Korean convenience store brand GS25.
Samsung Newsroom traveled to the three Galaxy Experience Spaces in Seongsu — Flip Side Market The Garden, Flip Side Market Seongsu and Flip Side Market DOOR to Seongsu.
Step #1: Flip Side Market The Garden
As you walk along the main street of Seongsu-dong, you will come across a unique exhibition of objects displayed beyond the glass windows. Decorated in mint, the main color of the Galaxy Z Flip5, Flip Side Market is hard to miss on “Yeonmujang-gil,” a popular street in Seongsu. First stop? Flip Side Market The Garden.
Make the Most of Your Visit
At Flip Side Market The Garden, guests select a Galaxy Z Flip5 or Z Fold5 in the color of their choice to get hands-on experience with the latest devices. Using the preloaded mileage, visitors can purchase a variety of programs to experience what it is like to shop with Samsung Wallet. Additionally, they have the opportunity to purchase items by using the trial phones.
The Innovation of Galaxy Foldables and New Products Exhibition
Upon entering Flip Side Market The Garden, visitors are greeted by an Innovation Monument at the center of the space, showcasing the evolution of the new foldable phones through a factory line. The Innovation Monument is a tribute to the ingenuity behind the Galaxy Z Flip and Fold lineups — displaying the production process of the devices from applying the new Flex Hinge and testing their durability to the final launch with new colors and eco-conscious, recyclable packaging.
Epic Selfie Experiences, Just for Gen Z
At Flip Side The Garden, there is a selfie zone with a variety of eye-popping backgrounds and themes for visitors to enjoy. Guests can take epic selfies from different angles using the Galaxy Z Flip5’s precise camera and other advanced features, including Flex Cam and Quick Shot. The selfie zone, designed to target Gen Z, also showcases t-shirts from Samsung’s collaboration with popular brand “Kim’s Fruits” in Korea.
Step #2: Flip Side Market Seongsu
Across Flip Side Market The Garden is Flip Side Market Seongsu, the highlight of the Galaxy Studio experience where visitors can experience all the features of the new Galaxy products unveiled at Unpacked.
The Unique Side: Simply Tap To Explore Your Personalities
Upon entering the first floor of Flip Side Market Seongsu, visitors are welcomed by a large wall that utilizes the Galaxy Z Flip5. The display showcases the larger 3.4-inch Flex Window on the Galaxy Z Flip5, creating a colorful attraction with each unique screen.
“The wall demonstrates the enhanced usability of Galaxy Z Flip5’s Flex Window,” said a tech influencer from Thailand. “I can use more apps on a larger Cover Screen and customize the screen with more choices.”
On first and second floor of The Unique Side, visitors can decorate their Galaxy Z Flip5 with the all-new NFC-based Flipsuit Card. When guests choose a design and tap the changeable NFC card against the back of the device, the Flex Window automatically changes to match, just like decalcomania. By simply tapping different Flipsuit Cards, guests can find the accessories that match their personalities.
The Flex Side: Complete Your Fashion With Galaxy
At The Flex Side zone on the second floor, visitors can get a glimpse into the exciting world of Galaxy Watch6 series straps to enrich their fashion styles. With the Galaxy Watch6 series on their wrists, guests can take pictures at the photo zone in front of large mirror or test out different straps just as if they are shopping at a fashion accessory boutique.
In addition, guests can experience the 12MP high-definition rear camera, Quick Shot and FlexCam on the Galaxy Z Flip5 in two Galaxy photo booths that resemble a fitting room. Here, visitors can take a memorable shot with a frame mimicking a magazine cover or a frame in collaboration with Italian creative studio TOILETPAPER.
The Fun Side: An Immersive Gaming Experience Like Never Before
For passionate gamers looking for a playground, The Fun Side zone will be an immersive experience complete with the large screens of the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Tab S9 series. Visitors can put their gaming skills to the test through a series of daily challenges, and the best gamers will be selected at the end of each day.
The Creative Side: Multitasking Perfectly Made for Your Lifestyle
On the other end of the second floor is The Creative Side, a bookstore-like space where guests can experience the multitasking and productivity power of the Galaxy Z Fold5. Just like a library where books are organized by genre, the space is divided into different user lifestyle themes so guests can learn how to utilize the multitasking features on their Galaxy devices. Featuring different day-to-day scenarios — from using Split Screen View to take notes while listening to a lecture to using Pop-up view to check stock prices in real time — visitors can explore the enhanced productivity performance of the Galaxy Z Fold5.
The Wellness Side: Identify Your Sleep Type and Set Healthy Sleep Habits
Guests who are curious about their sleep habits can stop by The Wellness Side for in-depth sleep insights. The zone highlights the Galaxy Watch6 series’ sleep coaching program and the Galaxy Tab S9 series’ comprehensive sleep analysis as visitors learn about their sleep type.
Step #3: Flip Side Market DOOR to Seongsu
After exploring the Flip Side Market locations, visitors can use their accumulated experience points to buy merchandise at Flip Side Market DOOR to Seongsu. Near Flip Side Market Seongsu, this store showcases a variety of Galaxy collaboration merchandise.
At Flip Side Market DOOR to Seongsu, guests can experience the selfie and gaming capabilities of the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5. Special dessert merchandise, created in collaboration with GS25, can also be found here.
Tech reporters from Singapore visiting these spaces shared: “I became extremely excited about the Galaxy Z Flip5 after attending Galaxy Unpacked at COEX. Flip Side Market was a wonderful experience, allowing me to creatively enjoy the Galaxy Z Flip5.”
Seongsu Galaxy Studio invites visitors to explore the connected Galaxy ecosystem and discover a mobile experience made just for them. The three Flip Side Market locations will be open until August 20, 2023.
