KEY EVENTS


The Galaxy Unpacked event had alot to offer. Here are some of the major events of the Galaxy Unpacked event

16:55: Galaxy Home speaker




The last presentation of the event was for the Galaxy Home speaker which featured Samsung's Bixby. This particular launch was not well received as it came too late, poor aesthetic design and we all know Bixby still needs work. The speaker has a circular design that sends sound in every direction. The subwoofer provides a deep bass, while natural sound processing provide natural surround sound. You can also choose which way the sound is directed, by asking the speaker: “Hey Bixby, play music this way.”
