2021 Samsung Galaxy Unpacked : Are You Ready?

Samsung is kicking off 2021 with a big bang on January 14 – the first Galaxy Unpacked of the year!

Unlike previous years, they are going to announce their latest Galaxy S21 smartphones on the last day of CES 2021, instead of during Mobile World Congress in February or March.

Like the 2021 Samsung TV first look, this will be a global event that will be streamed online on the official Samsung website.

The 2021 Samsung Galaxy Unpacked will be broadcast globally on www.samsung.com (www.samsung.com/my here in Malaysia) at 11 PM (GMT+8) on 14 January 2021.

If you register your interest at https://www.samsung.com/my/unpacked/ by 14 January 2021, you will be entitled to redeem a FREE Samsung Galaxy Fit2 worth RM179 when you pre-order any Galaxy S21 smartphone!
