Samsung’s ‘Unpacking’ commercial, which was posted to YouTube on the 18th of February, 2016, tells the technology companies innovation story, unpacked, one box at a time.
The ad starts off showing us Samsung’s SH-100 mobile phone from 1988, before taking us up to the first wristwatch phone. In between, we see the world’s smallest TV phone and the companies first MP3 phone.
There’s also a recreation of the first 3G call made from Everest, plus a demonstration of the Galaxy S5’s water-resistant ability and how curved glass was used to create the first dual edge screen smartphone.
