Samsung confirms date of its Galaxy S24 series keynote, telcos open up registration of interest

Note: This article was first published on 3rd January 2024, and we're re-publishing it as it's still relevant + new tips to save more.

Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked keynote announcement.

It looks like Samsung is ready to launch its H1 2024 flagship phones, with its announcement’s date and time up for all to tune in.

According to Samsung, a “revolutionary mobile experience is coming” via its Galaxy Unpacked keynote. It’s happening on 18 January 2024, 2 AM Singapore Time.

Teasers of the upcoming Galaxy phones will be uploaded on its official news portal, while the event will be streamed live on Samsung’s official website.

Also coinciding with this news is a new teaser trailer for Galaxy AI uploaded onto its official YouTube channel, which opens with a lady quipping about how “phones were so different back in the day”. With Samsung previously saying that its next Galaxy phone will come with its self-made AI, it’s very likely that the trailer also counts as a promotion for its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked keynote.

Why are we sure it will announce the flagship Galaxy S24 series? Not only are its rumours rife, but the teaser trailer also showed the rear of an Ultra variant handset before its “Galaxy AI” title card. 

The biggest hint, however, is our local telcos opening up their registration of interest pages for Samsung’s upcoming devices. 

Registration of Interest for Galaxy Unpacked 2024

Singtel's ROI page for Samsung Galaxy S24 series.

You can register your interest (ROI) for the upcoming Galaxy AI-powered mobiles via Samsung or our local telcos.

The page for ROI via Samsung can be found here. Samsung is offering an exclusive S$88 e-voucher (promo code) valid for one pre-order transaction on the Samsung Online Store or Samsung Shop App between 18 and 30 January 2024

  • Bonus Tip 1: Samsung's new Shop App offers 10% off any first purchase (till 31st March 2024), which can be stacked with the above-mentioned $88 e-voucher promo code for even more savings. Get the app here.
  • Bonus Tip 2: Citibank card users get an additional $100 off on top of Samsung's promotions when you pre-order/purchase Samsung's new phones.

Folks who use the Samsung e-voucher to pre-order the phones also have one chance to win a trip for two to Seoul, South Korea. Business Class flights and accommodation are provided (total worth S$6,000). Eight winners (with their travel partners) will be chosen from 4 April 2024 onwards. T&Cs and other FAQs about this lucky draw can be found here.

Local major telcos also have their Galaxy S24 series ROI pages up and running.

  • Singtel’s ROI page for Galaxy S24 series phones can be found here. It’s offering S$88 off “your next Samsung Galaxy Unpacked device” and S$20 off selected Samsung accessories when pre-ordering from 18 January 2024 onwards.
  • StarHub has its ROI page here. Instead of running its own promotion, it’s tapping into Samsung’s lucky draw and e-voucher offering, if we were to understand its ROI terms and conditions correctly.
  • M1 also has an ROI page here. Like StarHub, its promotion also seems to be based on Samsung’s lucky draw, which means that lucky M1 users would be drawn from the same pool of Samsung pre-order users. M1’s page also hinted at upcoming Galaxy AI features with a tiny poll asking users which “smartphone AI” features would interest them, with four options: Camera, Photo Editing, Search, and Translation.
