For the third and final in the Online Docent series, Samsung invites you to tour the very latest in mobile technology, straight from the CityCube Berlin exhibition center. Read on for a virtual guide of the Mobile zone, where the Galaxy Note9 is on full display along with the Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Tab S4 and other latest Samsung mobile devices in a variety of exciting and hands-on experiential booths.


Throngs of visitors to Samsung Town crowd into the venue’s Mobile zone, which offers hands-on looks at the company’s latest mobile innovations.


The Mobile zone offers fun for all ages, with plenty of opportunities to play with Samsung’s newest smartphones, tablets, wearables and more.



Galaxy Note9 – The New Super Powerful Note

The Mobile zone tour begins with booths presenting a full overview of the latest in the Galaxy Note series, demonstrating its enhancements designed to provide users with “the highest perfection.” The Galaxy Note9 has been designed to offer the speed, power and performance that today’s users want and need. Users can spend all day with their phone in hand without having to worry about battery life, thanks to the Galaxy Note9’s 4,000mAh battery1. The Galaxy Note9 also offers users more space to complete tasks efficiently and effectively, with 128GB/512GB of internal storage2. Furthermore, a slimmer cut and symmetrical curves accompanied by its 6.4-inch display, the Galaxy Note9 matched with AKG built-in stereo speakers provides the most immersive experience yet.


Since its launch along with the original Galaxy Note in 2011, the S Pen has provided innovative ways and exciting to users to communicate and streamline their Note experience. For its latest iteration, Samsung understood that users needed their S Pen to be able to do more than personalize their writing, drawing or ‘Screen-off’ memo drafting needs; and so, the S Pen now comes with an integrated Bluetooth Low-Energy module so that users can remotely control their device from a distance. The remote-control aspect allows users to take selfies remotely at the click of a button. Users can also use it as a convenient clicker with Samsung DeX, for remote, seamless presentation slide control.


At the S Pen Galaxy Photo Booth, visitors can experiment with the S Pen’s new remote capabilities – by just pressing a button on the S Pen, visitors are able to take a selfie, even when the phone is about 10 meters away from them.


At the S Pen Live Message Relay booth, visitors are experiencing more of the S Pen’s advanced features. Attendees can create their very own AR Emoji on the Galaxy Note9 and use the S Pen to add personalized Live Messages, drawings and more effects. These can be shared with other attendees through the screen at the event.


The Echoverse booth features special lighting and mirror effects, providing an exciting space for visitors to design a Live Message with the S Pen before taking a selfie and sharing the unique results.


Next up on the tour, the Camera Experience booths are demonstrating to visitors how the advanced camera in the Galaxy Note9 can help them take their best photos yet – effortlessly. Brand new intelligent functions, Scene Optimizer and Flaw Detection, do the work for you in capturing the perfect picture. The Galaxy Note9’s camera also features support for Samsung’s recently introduced Super Slow-mo function and AR Emojis that are more expressive than ever, so that you’ll never run out of fun ways to communicate with friends.


This interactive booth allows visitors to explore how groundbreaking the Super Slow-mo function of the Note9 can be. Attendees can choose an RC Car from the extensive line-up on offer, race them using the Note9 and utilize Super Slow-mo to fully capture and enjoy the dynamic scene.



Galaxy Watch – Heritage Design, Lifestyle Function

The Galaxy Note9’s wider ecosystem, powered by SmartThings, allows users centralized, easy control of their Samsung devices. The improved Galaxy Watch maintains its classic real watch design, but now comes with maximized battery life4 and LTE connectivity to allow integration across your devices, even when away from your Galaxy smartphone. The Galaxy Watch is the perfect lifestyle tool, introducing innovative tools to track your stress levels and sleep cycles5, providing an informative morning/evening debrief, and the ‘My Day’ watch face allows you quick access to the next 10 hours of your schedule.


At the Galaxy Watch Experience booth, users are learning how the Galaxy Watch has also become the ultimate fitness tool. Swim-ready with 5ATM support6, it has 39 exercise types for you to choose from and the device can detect the 6 most common exercise types automatically. Available in two sizes, the Galaxy Watch is the perfect complement to your daily activities, whatever your lifestyle type. And with a wide variety of straps to choose from, including the 25 especially stylish options from Samsung and Braloba that are currently on display in Samsung’s booth, it’s easy to customize your Galaxy Watch with a look that suits your style.

Collaboration Galaxy and Art

In the center of the Mobile zone, this year’s IFA presentation features Samsung’s latest creative collaboration with British pop artist Sam Cox, more commonly known as Mr. Doodle. The Mr. Doodle Façade Wall serves as a centerpiece, showcasing the full immersive quality of the bezel-less Galaxy Note9 screen as phones come together to display Mr. Doodle’s quirky and imaginative style in impressive ‘infinity’ style.


Samsung Electronics and Sam Cox (aka “Mr. Doodle”) have come together to showcase a special collaboration of technology and art. This side of the display wall utilizes The Frame, the Galaxy Note9 and the Galaxy Tab S4 so that visitors can fully enjoy the eye-catching nature of Mr. Doodle’s work as a media art.

Full VR Immersion

VR gaming has never been so exciting. At the 4D Experience booth, visitors can take part in an interactive 4D racing game with a car simulator. Also at the Galaxy Shoot-out VR, pairs of guests wearing Galaxy Note9-equipped Gear VRs, gloves and foot sensors can battle it out in a one-on-one soccer penalty shoot-out. Enthusiastic participants can even check the scoreboard afterwards to see how they ranked.
