It’s no secret that Samsung is big on innovation, so when the new Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Fold2 5G debuted globally it was easy to see why they were two of the most anticipated launches of 2020. 

Besides starting a whole new ball game in the competitive world of smartphones, these 5G-ready phones have also managed to marry the comforts of a tablet with the portability of a phone, creating hybrids that impressed even the most avid of tech enthusiasts. The best way of experiencing any new phone is by getting up close and personal with it, and what better setting to showcase innovation and creativity than at Alma. 

The one Michelin-starred restaurant at Goodwood Park Hotel has become synonymous with Asian influenced Modern European cuisine in Singapore. Set within the contemporary confines of a private dining room within the lauded establishment, guests of Burda Singapore and Samsung got to savour a special four-course, caviar-themed menu specially created by Chef Haikal Johari, all while trying out the latest mobile phones by Samsung.

Each dish was a masterclass in flavour and technique, and standouts included Russian Kaluga caviar that was paired with fish velouté, chervil root, and Japanese black throat seaperch, as well as the Russian Hybrid caviar that offered a delicate brininess to the Anjou pear, crème fresh and Japanese Sume Ika. Even the dessert took an unconventional turn, as the tartness of yuzu, Japanese Mikan and honey pineapple were punctuated by savoury pops of Amur caviar. To elevate the meal, each course also came with its own alcohol pairing.

The new Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Fold2 5G were, of course, the stars of the show here, and guests enjoyed the phones’ flexibility (pun intended) as they explored their many possibilities. The former sees an innovative new design that unfolds to give a full 6.7-inch screen experience from a compact, palm-sized folding form. With unparalleled connectivity speeds and the ability to take selfies and photos hands-free, the phone is every urban explorer’s dream, giving them the opportunity to document their adventures effortlessly. 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G too, is designed to take on anything the day throws at it, whether it’s to make a hands-free video call, multi-task with three apps concurrently, or browse the internet on a larger display. With 5G capabilities, the smartphone offers hyperfast speeds to meet all these needs and more, ensuring you’re always seamlessly connected, no matter where you go.
