For this year’s iteration of Mobile World Congress, Samsung is hosting an all-virtual event called Galaxy Session where the company promised to talk – what else but – its upcoming tech. The focus will be on the possibilities enabled by the very same and how those can “enrich” one’s lifestyle. More specifically, we’re expecting some Wear OS announcements at the event, all as a prelude to the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4 series later this year.
All of this is happening much to Google’s relief, mind you. And for the uninitiated, the Galaxy Session will constitute the majority of Samsung’s participation in the MWC 2021. The Seoul-based company already confirmed it won’t be physically attending the event some two months back.
Will Samsung’s new tech live up to its claims of lifestyle enrichment?
Samsung’s switch to Wear OS is said to present some new opportunities for both users and developers alike. Samsung will also touch upon the growing importance of mobile security, one of Samsung’s core strategic goals in the product space. In fact, communicating the paramount importance of mobile security is very much on Samsung’s MWC 2021 agenda, according to the company’s announcement of the event.
As for how to tune in and watch the happening live, you have two options at your disposal: Samsung YouTube (embedded above) and Samsung Newsroom. Both will be streaming this year’s Galaxy Session which kicks off on Monday, 19:15 CET. That’s 10:15 PT, 13:15 ET, and 22:45 IST. As always, we’ll be following the session live, so the simplest way to stay on top of next week’s events is to simply keep up with our coverage.
