At the beginning of 2016, who doesn't take smartphones for granted. People think they've seen everything a smartphone can do
At Samsung we have other ideas
We're here to show you that what others see as limits, we see as an invitation to see what's possible
"Redefine the possibilities"
S7 and S7 edge "more than just a smartphone. It's a gateway which links you to more possibilities
Products, partnerships and services working together
No company in a better position to achieve this vision than Samsung
Samsung pay is expanding to Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Singapore, Spain, UK
Samsung working with Google, "our special relationship partner."
Samsung "leading security" in Android with Knox
Samsung Connect Auto is built on Knox and Tizen. "Most advanced connected car service on the market"
Next up, Gear VR. In 2016, we are leading the way as VR takes you beyond the borders of physical presence.
Today we're introducing Gear 360, a 360 degree camera to change the way memories are made
Samsung VP of research Pranav Mistry is taking to the stage to talk Gear 360
With Gear 360 what we have created is a new way to tell stories, to capture the world around us
GS7 is at the very center of this experience
360. Because the real world is not in one direction.
We started this 360 degree journey with Project Beyond
Over the past few days we've taken it all over the world to capture beautiful places
We designed Gear 360 to help you tell your story. To capture the fun parts of life
This is a new kind of camera. Lets us virtually travel from one place to another
And here it is! A small sphere packed with the best of Samsung's technologies. 30MP combined over two lenses. f/2.0
Seamlessly connected to GS7. Can preview live what you're recording
Today we can capture 360 degrees of life, put you at the center and transport you to places you've always wanted to go
It's more than VR. We call it "other reality"
With GS7 at the center, we're redefining what the Gear 360 can do
Whoa. Zuckerberg is here!
(Which makes since – he's giving a keynote here at MWC)
And just like that, the VR experience is over and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is taking to the stage
Talking about his early days writing code
Imagining a world where you could transport your way to another place in reality.
(Zuck being here also makes sense as Facebook owns Oculus, which is a partner for Gear VR
"At Facebook, we think about giving people richer tools for sharing and experiencing everything they want in the world"
(Camera crews in this place are all running up to the stage.)
10 years ago, most of what we shared was text. Then photos. Now it's video. Pretty soon it'll be the power to experience whole scenes
Zuck's talking about how to remember important moments, like his daughter's first steps
"VR is the next platform"
"Where anyone can create and experience anything"
