By now it’s all clear that Samsung Unpacked event is happening on February 1st at 21:30 local time.
It’s the day that we expect to see Samsung unveil the Galaxy S23 series, including the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but of course, there’s more than just phones to see at the event.
Based on the teasers the company has been sending out, it has gone big in mobile photography with the S23 specifically night photography.
We have seen the company use catchphrases such as “Mode for moonlight,” “Capture the night, even in low light,” “Stunning night photos are coming,” among others.
Of course, there have been rumors about the Galaxy S23 series’s improved cameras for months and those teasers confirm that.
This also could be the reason why Samsung is partnering with Oscar-winning writer and director Charlie Kaufman to showcase these camera features.
Kaufman is best known for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Synecdoche, New York. Kaufman took advantage of the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s filming capabilities to create a short visual art film in beautiful, crystal-clear detail. The film, titled “Jackals and Fireflies”, is based on a poem by Eva H.D. who plays the role of poet, narrator, and lead actor in this uniquely Kaufmanesque love letter to New York City.
The partnership builds on the Filmed #withGalaxy campaign, which invites visionary directors to demonstrate that the Galaxy S Series is the perfect tool they need to share their epic stories with the world. In October 2021, world-renowned British director Joe Wright used the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 13mm Ultra-Wide lens to shoot his short film Princess and Peppernose. In November 2021, up-and-coming Chinese director Sha Mo used the Galaxy S21 Ultra to capture the visually stunning Kids of Paradise.
Jackals and Fireflies will be unveiled exclusively at the Galaxy Experience Space in San Francisco coming with the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1st. Kaufman will also present the film at a later date in New York City.
Samsung says will continue to set epic standards for the smartphone experience at Galaxy Unpacked, with camera capabilities being at the forefront of the new premium Galaxy innovations.
