Samsung Galaxy S9 ringtone debuts in inspirational video

'Over the Horizon' has been the default ringtone of Samsung Galaxy cellphones since 2011, when it came on the fresh, new Samsung Galaxy S II. Since then, the melody has been updated on a yearly basis in order to keep it fresh and to reflect the changes in the ever-evolving Galaxy series. Thе update happens in time for the release of the new Samsung Galaxy flagships and since we are a mere week away from the unveiling of the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung has released their 2018 iteration of 'Over the Horizon'.

While last year's edition of 'Over the Horizon' had a bit of a jazz feel to it, this year's edition sounds more like a classical symphony. Samsung says the ringtone rearrangement's goal is to calm and relax you, regardless of your age and music taste. The tones are a blissful combination of constantly changing instruments, piano and violin to name a few, produced by Icelandic composer Pétur Jónsson. The ringtone was released alongside a video showing off the beauty of the Nordic nature – from snow-covered mountains to beautifully curved rivers. 

'Over the Horizon' is expected to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, which will be revealed on February 25 at the MWC '18 in Barcelona.

Nice! I like it a lot. I wasn't a fan of last years version at all, but this one I can get behind. Piano + strings is always a winning combination, and it's been a while since we've had a theme reminiscent of the S3 days. This one feels simpler than the S3 theme, but still quite good.
