Thanks to Samsung for the invite to the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked First Look Media briefing. Had the opportunity to hands-on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6, Galaxy Z Flip6, Galaxy Watch Ultra, Galaxy Watch7, Galaxy Buds3 and Galaxy Buds3 Pro.

There are a lot of information in this post. Please be patient. Here is a simple menu for you to navigate around.

This is a very first look and hands-on of the devices. I was able to have a taste of the Galaxy AI that transformed my plain looking sketch into a masterpiece. Check out the video for more information.

In general, externally, there are not many changes to the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6. Internally, it has upgraded the processor and others (as of this writing, I do not have the actual specs of the two devices).

For the Fold6, it is still not able to keep the stylus inside the phone. I hope that they can manage to squeeze it in for future iteration. For the Flip6, finally, the camera is upgraded to 50 MPX. Design-wise, very similar to the predecessor.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Ultra is a surprise in a good way. I love bulky and big watches. The Galaxy Watch Ultra seems to fit the bill.

With its 100 hours battery life (in power saving mode), I believe it will be less of a nuisance as compared to charging it daily.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch7 is an upgrade from the previous one (Watch6). Of course, internally, the components have been upgraded.

As for the Galaxy Buds3 (open type) and Buds3 Pro (ear canal type), they are very different from Buds2 series. Both of them have the IP57 rating and capable of performing real time translation of a foreign language with Galaxy AI. For Buds3 Pro, it has the interesting blade light that you can control via app.

Finally, I tried the Galaxy AI to generate very nice-looking pictures from the sketches. Very interesting on how AI will transform our daily lives in the near future.
