Jan 14, 2021 20:34 (IST)

Samsung’s official corporate partnerships will increase this year, hints Roh. Google, Microsoft, Netflix and Spotify logos pop up on the screen.

We have TM Roh, Samsung’s mobile business head, addressing the keynote.

Finally, the Galaxy is unpacking itself!

Jan 14, 2021 20:30 (IST)

So, that’s that. There are 21 “Galaxy devices” that you will win through the course of the event, so stay tuned to Samsung India’s YouTube stream of the event. Now, time for the announcements to begin.

On a related note, does it matter to you if your phone is made in India? Or do you focus more on the features of a phone instead of where they are made?

Until the event begins, tell us if you’ve downloaded Signal or Telegram recently, too. If you have, do you really plan to stick to it and move away from WhatsApp?

About 600+ Indian engineers have worked on the Galaxy S21 phones as part of the global team, claims Samsung.

Okay, so… yeah, we’ll have another 20 minutes of basically no real information. Just to clarify: ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ is not starting 30 minutes ahead of global schedule. That’s at 8:30pm only, folks.

Jan 14, 2021 20:07 (IST)

Breaking: 21 new Samsung Galaxy S21 phones will be given away for free. The contest will run through the course of the event.

Jan 14, 2021 20:06 (IST)

Let’s give Samsung (India) credit where it’s due – they’ve debuted the show by being funny. Also, telling everyone to “buy a new phone”.

Jan 14, 2021 20:05 (IST)

“The only place where the resolutions are getting better are on smartphone screens.” Hmmm, that wasn’t an expected line *at all*.

Jan 14, 2021 20:03 (IST)

We’re running 30 minutes ahead of the global schedule, and… we begin by talking about “resolutions”. Get the pun?

Jan 14, 2021 20:03 (IST)

But the Galaxy Unpacked India stream has begun!

Jan 14, 2021 20:02 (IST)

Still some time to go for unpacking our next galaxy, it seems. “The show will begin soon,” says Samsung in the stream.

Jan 14, 2021 20:02 (IST)

Or… so I thought. We’re still at the colourful musical cube.

Jan 14, 2021 20:01 (IST)

And it’s time!

Jan 14, 2021 19:57 (IST)

Another little something that’ll probably annoy you if you’re a Samsung fan: after trolling Apple about removing the charging adapter from the iPhone retail boxes, Samsung will apparently do the same. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Now, for some whole-hearted spamming of all the stuff we’ve covered for the Galaxy S21. Surprise, surprise – there have been WAY TOO MANY leaks about this phone already. First up – the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and all details about it.

Jan 14, 2021 19:51 (IST)

As always, if you’d rather watch the event yourself than hear us drone on about things, here’s the stream for you:

As you may have already guessed (and were likely waiting for it), this is the launch event of the Samsung Galaxy S21. I’d actually expected Samsung to call it the Galaxy S30 after the jump they made last year, but turns out they were only aligning their numbering to the year. Meh.

Hello, good evening and welcome to our second Samsung live blog in a week. This one’s definitely gonna be more than about talking refrigerators.
