Teaser: Samsung Galaxy S7 unboxed by a llama and a 4 year old kid (for real)
Samsung this week kicked off a marketing campaign to tease the Galaxy S7 series, which will be officially unveiled on Sunday, February 21, at MWC 2016.

Dubbed "Seven Days of Unboxing", the campaign brings us unusual Galaxy S7 unboxing videos - quite weird videos, that is. The first video shows us what a 4 year old child saw when unboxing the Galaxy S7, while the second one is about a llama unboxing the handset, too. Yes, we're talking about a real llama here. Both the kid and the tech savvy mammal made drawings of what the S7 looked to them. Unfortunately, their works or art don't really reveal much about the smartphone (though we already know that, design-wise, the handset should resemble the Galaxy S6 from last year).

Since this campaign is called "Seven Days of Unboxing", we're expecting 5 more weird videos to be released in the following days, including on Sunday, when the Galaxy S7 will be officially presented to the world. Until then, you can watch the first two unboxing videos for yourself below. After you do, while wondering what the fudge was that? (or something along these lines), you may want to check out our Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge rumor review to find out what the new smartphones are expected to offer.

Earlier today, Samsung posted another Galaxy S7 teaser video, apparently confirming one of the new series' features: water-resistance. Also today, we saw leaked photos of what appeared to be the Galaxy S7 edge inside its retail box. All in all, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge aren't exactly Samsung's best kept secrets, are they?

This could be one of the biggest waste of money for advertising since HTC has Robert Downey Jr

Lol not even close since HTC spent 1 billion on the Robert Downey Jr ads.

Daddy gonna tell u what......
I am tell you what i saw and the point.... llama painted base on 4 colours, Titanium Silver, BLUE, BLACK and GOLD. I am sure, llama and the trainer shows us the phone colours... anyway this is a new style of commercial... the way of attracting people with puzzle to the new flagship

Frankly spoken, the best commercials that Samsung has ever done for Galaxy S Series because they aim at inducing emotions instead of showing functionality of the device. Samsung has caught my attention now.

Frankly, emotion commercials are useless to me when I'm buying a tool, but then again, I'm no average joe persuaded by meh emotions in buying what's meant to be a tool instead of some fashion product...I want to know uses of that tool/product over the competition, that's what I look for in tool/product ads.

These were just reminders of a tool coming, which is a good thing for any up coming product, but definitely won't buy the tool based on any of them...

Nice teaser commercial. Although thing is after all these leak, everyone has an idea of what the phone will look like and what spec it will have. Hope there still a small surprise left for MWC.

Hope those earlier leaks aren't the real design. Or the leaked picture from Dubai about the G5. Both companies can and should come up with better designs.

Why? What's wrong with the S7 design?
Or you always have to find a way to criticize Samsung?

Why don't you tell that to Apple? They have the same design since 2007.lol

Eh not really. Every two years they change the overall design. iPhone 6/6S look nothing like the first iPhone except for the thick top/bottom bezels and home button. Thick bezels seems to be something Apple doesn't want to change.

Wow... Same design since 2007? Really?
I don't mind haters, but you can be more rational and realistic about it.

Care to explain how you envision the designs then? Not much can be done with a rectangular slab.

Exactly! It seems like the majority of commentators on PA criticize every single design they see.

48. aegislash (Posts: 195; Member since: 27 Jan 2015)


Honestly though. I swear every article related to the S7/Edge has people complaining about the design, but none of them ever back up the complaints with how they feel the device should look.

The S7 looks a lot like the iPhone 6s, which looks kinda boring and Uninnovative. I think Sony and Microsoft Lumias have better design.

Having a kid and an animal isn't the best idea to market phone anticipation. For various reasons...the kid is too young to understand what a smartphone is. Secondly, animals can't talk and last I know of animals can't talk and surf the web of what human beings can do.

Pointless commercial tease!

Glad they're having fun with it. I like them.

They should do an ad with Evleaks, and then have him act all surprised. Just to mess with everyone.

This "unboxing" video didn't reveal jack sh/t. All it did show is yet another example that Orientals and Africans don't mix well.

Since we know what the GS7 will llikely look like, the real unboxing I would like to see is that of the LG G5. If it really does feature the rumoured slide-out battery, that will be a MAJOR selling point to me. Too bad the recently posted bootleg sale photo didn't show that or not.

D you know what I am thinking? We have seen so many leaked images in the last several months. I think that Samsung is pointing to something unusual, which never done before. I mean, Samsung maybe is pointing out that what we have seen in the last several months, were all illusions and wrong. Galaxy S7 might be totally different than we actually thought. I got to these conclusions after I watch the video with the Lama. It shows that we saw something and our imaginations were just a scratch on the surface, but the real thing is totally different.
