Take Masterpieces From the Louvre Home With Samsung’s The Frame
In its latest attempt to lure iPhone users into switching to the Galaxy side, Samsung wants Apple users to try out the new Galaxy S23 series right from their iPhones. According to 9to5Google, Samsung created a Try Galaxy website where iPhone owners can install a web app that transforms iOS into Samsung’s OneUI Android personalization.
The publication notes that this is really specific for iPhone users, as if you try the website on a Pixel phone, it simply won’t work.
With the Try Galaxy experience, you can navigate into Samsung’s OneUI interface and stock apps, such as Google Messages, which doesn’t use RCS but shows SMS/MMS texts, Gallery, Samsung Health, and even the Camera.
And when you click on the Camera, you’re prompted with several videos and tutorials highlighting the benefits of Samsung cameras. Interestingly enough, if you tap the Galaxy Themes app, you can fully customize your iPhone-Galaxy interface.

An annoying feature of this website is the several message notifications you get in exchange for insights about the Galaxy S23. Even the tiny things, such as the notification sounds, remind me why I prefer sticking with the iPhone.
That said, even if this experience isn’t enough to make you switch from an iPhone to the Galaxy S23 (or the Z Fold or Z Flip options), at least you get to understand what you’re missing out – or not – from an Android phone while testing this theme right from your iPhone.
For me, I’m already too attached to the Apple ecosystem to make the transition from the iPhone, AirPods, Mac, iPad, and its services to Samsung and Google. But if you want to give it a try, you can check the Try Galaxy here.

Samsung Electronics today unveiled a new interactive display with upgraded features and a powerful software solution at Bett (British Educational Training and Technology) 2023, the world’s largest education technology exhibition, in London. The more than 30,000 attendees at Bett can explore the future of education with the cutting-edge Samsung Interactive Display and the Samsung Whiteboard App.
Technology plays a critical role in the classroom today, and the classroom of tomorrow requires a full suite of tools to help teachers and students deepen connections and increase collaboration in a familiar and convenient way. To meet the evolving needs of educators, classroom technology is becoming increasingly customizable, feature-rich and interconnected across device ecosystems and operating systems (OS). Samsung is expanding its technology, services and support for education to set teachers up for success.
“Our education technology is designed to equip educators with the tools they need to fully engage students and enrich the learning experience in any environment,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “At Bett, we are excited to showcase our interactive display solutions, demonstrating the level of advanced usability and interactivity required for the tech-enabled future of education.”
Introducing the New Interactive Display and Software Powering the Classroom of the Future
The new Samsung Interactive Display (Model name: WAC) is available for Bett attendees to experience in person. Expanding the offerings beyond the Flip and Flip Pro models operating on Tizen OS, the new WAC model leverages Android OS to provide intuitive usability. The easy-to-use display helps teachers customize their home screen user interface (UI), activate multiple screens, share up to nine displays at once regardless of OS or device and utilize intelligent education apps to enrich student learning. Users can also take advantage of the integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Unveiled in 65-, 75- and 86-inch models,1 the WAC series is built to integrate into any classroom setting. Its connectivity is enhanced with a 3-in-1 USB-C port, which enables hassle-free screen connection, touch control and external device charging (max. 65W). In addition, the HDMI output function allows teachers to share content on a bigger screen, particularly useful in a lecture theater.
Featuring a slim and user-friendly design, the WAC model takes into consideration the importance of both convenience and interactivity. With IR touch, users can enjoy a natural writing experience, 20 multi-touch drawing and a dual-sided pen to write with a different color on each end without changing the settings. The front stereo speaker, penholder and handle on the display boost convenience for a seamless education environment.
The Device Management Solution (DMS) for WAC series allows users to monitor and control the display in the classroom remotely at the same time. The DMS also provides an alert function that sends warning messages to the screen collectively in case of an emergency.
Originally available on the Samsung Flip (Model name: WMB, WMA, WMR), the Samsung Whiteboard App will also be compatible with the WAC model. The software solution helps educators connect to Windows OS devices, so that even after connecting a PC to the display, seamless writing on top of the content on the PC can be experienced in real-time, creating a dynamic classroom experience. In addition, it is easy to store and share content and documents, as well as annotate on top of whatever is being displayed in real-time, even during a video conference.
At Bett, the Samsung stand will be located at NE31 in the ExCeL London from March 29 – 31, 2023.
1 65- and 75-inch models will launch during 1H. 86-inch model will launch during 2H.

Samsung Electronics and the New York Mets Hit a Home Run, Unveiling Newest and Brightest Outdoor LED Technology at Citi FieldBy STF News
Samsung Electronics America and the New York Mets recently made sports history with the installment of the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks. As fans gear up for the start of a new baseball season, they will have a firsthand look at the enhanced and fully upgraded dual-sided centerfield video board, which features a 17,400 square feet LED screen on the front and 6,900 square feet on the back. Since Fall of 2022, Samsung has installed over 29,800 square feet of new LED at Citi Field.
Unveiled for the first time at the Mets’ What’s New at Citi Field event on March 23, attendees had a sneak peek of what fans can expect for the upcoming season. The scoreboard is the highlight of the multiple digital display upgrades throughout the entire stadium, providing fans with a state-of-the-art display experience. Even as fans enjoy the new experienced introduced throughout the ballpark, the new scoreboard ensures that they won’t miss a moment of the action taking place on the field.
“As an emerging New York landmark, Citi Field continues to set itself apart with the integration of cutting-edge display technology that enhances the in-stadium experience for fans,” said James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Display and Home Entertainment Division, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung is a proud partner of the Mets and with the installment of the first-of-its-kind, double-sided LED display, we are excited to help the franchise reach the next level of technology innovation in professional sports.”
New Centerfield Scoreboard Brings Citi Field to Life
Since forming its partnership in 2021, Samsung has worked with the Mets to transform Citi Field into the most technologically advanced, professional ballpark. The multi-year digital transformation included the deployment of over 1,300 LFD displays and several new Outdoor LED displays last year, totaling over 15 million pixels. The second phase of installments, which will be fully operational by opening day on April 6, will feature several new outfield displays, including the new centerfield scoreboard, increasing the total pixel count in Citi Field to 40 million. In addition to the centerfield scoreboard, Mets fans will see display improvements in all corners of the stadium, including exterior signage, digital concession menu boards and more.
“Samsung’s innovative technology at Citi Field will expand the standard for what fans expect when entering the country’s best stadiums. Over a two-year period, we’ve transformed a once static signage environment to an all-digital experience,” said David Phelps, Vice President, Product Management, Display Division, Samsung Electronics America. “While working with the Mets, we’ve been able to push the boundaries of what is possible by delivering more creative and unique experiences for its fan base.”
The new LED technology also enables opportunities for DOOH (Digital Out-of-Home) advertising by transforming once static displays into a blank canvas of creativity. The scoreboard offers near unlimited configurations for advertisers to stand out from the competition and deliver entirely new visual experiences to fans. With the ability to accept multiple forms of content, the dynamic display helps foster the local economy by providing business owners with an affordable solution to advertise at Citi Field. The back of the dual-sided scoreboard reaches heights so tall that it’s visible from the highway, offering yet another opportunity to increase sponsorship and advertisement revenue, as well as inform and excite fans waiting to enter the stadium to join the action.
Immersive Entertainment for Every Fan
Citi Field’s main video LED board is substantially the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks and over three times larger than Citi Field’s previous centerfield scoreboard. The expansive 17,400 square-foot high-definition video display ensures that no matter where fans are in the stadium, they won’t miss the action on or off the field. Including the new enhanced display on the back, the centerfield scoreboard features over 24,000 square feet of LED signage and over 13 million pixels, along with a high-resolution, 10mm pixel pitch display to enhance the in-stadium fan experience. Teams in the dugouts and fans in the stands alike can watch 4K instant replays, up-close game action, game stats, interactive updates and more.
“Samsung’s state-of-the-art technology upgrades at Citi Field underscore our goal of providing best-in-class experiences for our fans,” said Mark Brubaker, Chief Technology Officer, New York Mets. “The quality of these enhancements will not only provide our fans with more immersive and memorable visits to the ballpark, but it also positions Citi Field as a trailblazer in the industry.”
The iconic ballpark’s digital transformation demonstrates how today’s display technology can seamlessly integrate into stadiums and introduce unique interactive offerings for fans. Built for the future, Samsung’s technology upgrades to Citi Field create an interactive environment for all generations of baseball fans traveling to the ballpark.
