SEOUL, KOMPAS.com - After being held online for two consecutive years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Galaxy Unpacked 2023 this time was again held offline directly at Samsung headquarters, Seoul, South Korea. Galaxy Unpacked 2023 which was held at COEX Convention Hall on Wednesday (07/26/2023) yesterday, invited a number of media crews, partners, and influencers from various parts of the world to attend. Starting from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Japan, Africa, the United States, North America, and many more.
KompasTekno journalist Caroline Saskia Tanoto had the opportunity to attend the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event in person. There, there were famous idols who enlivened the event. Starting from actress Sydney Sweeney from the United States to Suga, one of the members of the popular band BTS in South Korea. Now, when launching a number of its latest products, such as the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and others, Samsung bosses who deliver product specifications, occasionally involve influencers who are present in the room. For example, when introducing the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Nils Dahl, Product and Technology Planning MX Business asked Suga BTS a direct question. The question asked was "What do you think, Suga, about Galaxy?". He just stared at Nils wordlessly, then gave a thumbs-up to the stage.
The thumbs-up, which was interpreted as "good", was accompanied by a faint smile from Suga. Seeing that reaction, the audience clapped and cheered.
The cheers accompanied by sound and clapping made Suga blush and had time to hold his expression to smile. He also took out his cellphone, which looked like the Green color variant of the Galaxy S23 Plus. The back of the device above is written "D-Day" which is the third album by Suga. In addition to Suga, Sydney Sweeney was also involved to test the new FlexCam on the Galaxy Z Flip 5. He said a few words about the new design on the secondary screen of the device and invited Jang Won-young or commonly called Wonyoung, one of the IVE members, to take a selfie.
Sydney showed off the Flex Cam advantage of the Galaxy Z Flip 5's wide secondary screen. He took a selfie with Wonyoung by pressing the power button on the right side of the body. The selfie was immediately displayed on the wall of LED screens where the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event took place.
"I will mark the photos that I like. I really like the Flex Window. Do you like it?" asked Sydney to Wonyoung who was taking a selfie. Besides Sydney, the row of seats to her right was also attended by other famous South Korean bands, such as Stray Kids. All members came and filled the first to second row. They came wearing a uniform color that was dominated by black. In addition to overseas actresses and idols, influencers from Indonesia were also invited and attended the event, such as Reza Rahadian, Anya Geraldine, and Pevita Pearce. Apart from the presence of idols, Galaxy Unpacked 2023 also seemed to be welcomed enthusiastically by all participants. Because, while waiting for the hall gate to open, all participants from all over the world have begun to crowd the waiting room. The queue began to snake from the front to the back. Most of the participants also captured the moment and shared the new experience on social media. Starting from streaming, photos in front of the Galaxy Unpacked booth, recording moments of the crowd, selfies in front of the #JointheFlipSide slogan, and many more.
