Samsung Unpacked at IFA 2014

Samsung is running events in Berlin, New York and Beijing to announce its new mobile products, widely expected to include the Galaxy Note 4.

    "This is a landmark first step," Carmack enthuses.
  • Jason Jenkins 9/3/2014 2:07:18 PM
    Sooooo awkward

    "Finding great partners is a large part of making progress," Samsung says. And Carmack has left the stage.

    There's an 'Innovator's Edition' of the Gear VR, perhaps for early adopters.

    "Consumers want, need and deserve exciting content."

    Will we all have one of these in our homes? I predict: no.

    Marvel, IMAX, Dreamworks, Warner Brothers, Vevo and more are partnered to provide content for the Gear VR. That's encouraging.
  • Jason Jenkins 9/3/2014 2:09:19 PM
    That headset was a really weird product to end on, the Galaxy Note Edge looked amazing, should have spent longer on that.
  • Luke Westaway 9/3/2014 2:09:45 PM
    It looks like that might be it. Samsung says "Let's be reminded of the hero of the day" and rolls a Note 4 promo video. Nothing upstages the Note 4, it seems.
  • Luke Westaway 9/3/2014 2:10:29 PM
    "Do you Note?" is the question the promo vid asks. We're, er, not sure.
  • Jason Jenkins 9/3/2014 2:10:37 PM
    "Do you Note?" Huh?
  • Andrew Hoyle 9/3/2014 2:10:47 PM
  • Luke Westaway 9/3/2014 2:10:53 PM
    And we're done. The presenters are saying their goodbyes. Don't forget to check out those First Takes.
  • Luke Westaway 9/3/2014 2:11:09 PM
    Thanks for following along folks, have a great, tech-filled day. We're off to play with the new kit.
  • Jason Jenkins 9/3/2014 2:11:21 PM
    We're wrapping up here, good to see Samsung doing something different in phones - shows there is still genuine innovation left in this space.
  • Jared Sterry 9/3/2014 2:11:41 PM
    A smart move on the partnerships. If they could partner with Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, etc on the TV/Movie side, this would be epic. I would love to see integration with consoles (likely XBox since PS had adopted their own headset)
  • Nick Sardelianos 9/3/2014 2:11:51 PM
    No waterproof semi-killed it for me. WHY Samsung?
  • Andrew Hoyle 9/3/2014 2:12:42 PM

    And it's goodbye from me, too!
