‘Over the Horizon’ ringtone reimagined for the Galaxy S9

If you’ve owned a Samsung smartphone at any point over the past few years then you would be familiar with “Over the Horizon.” It has been the default ringtone of Galaxy devices since 2011 and is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable ringtones. Samsung rearranges the Over the Horizon ringtone every year with each new generation of Galaxy devices and with its next-generation flagship just around the corner, Samsung today shared the Over the Horizon 2018 ringtone.

The company says that the latest version of its brand sound has the power to relax the mind and heal the soul and that it will resonate with all those who hear it regardless of their age.

Go on a journey of discovery with Over the Horizon 2018

Over the Horizon has been rearranged for 2018 by Icelandic composer Pétur Jónsson. He has created a minimalistic arrangement with delicately layering instruments that will take the listener on an “atmospheric journey of discovery,” according to Samsung.

The sound rises to a crescendo as additional instruments are gradually introduced before fading away. The video that Samsung has released today pairs the soft melody with sweeping shots of misty mountains, snow-blanketed hills and jagged cliffs that capture the beauty of Nordic nature.

Over the Horizon 2018 will debut with the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ that are due to be unveiled on February 25 in Barcelona.
