Let’s be frank here – over the past decade, Samsung’s ride to become one of the top Android smartphone brand is nothing short of amazing. As number of Samsung users grow, so does the amount of people who do not change their ringtones from the default one. Hence, that iconic Samsung ringtone chime is engraved in our brains – and that song is called Over The Horizon.
Over The Horizon has actually been rearranged a few times in multiple different genres of music – starting from the Galaxy S2 that was launched back in 2011. From rock to new age, to fusion jazz and more, Over the Horizon had it all.
To commemorate the 10th birthday and the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S10 series, Over The Horizon has now been rearranged once again – but this time in a new “classical-pop crossover” flavor that is “ocean-inspired”. Take a listen here.
Samsung says that the new “ocean-inspired” Over The Horizon signifies Samsung’s exploration in multiple different types of technologies and innovating it into Galaxy devices over the years.
The video above was also filmed around the shores of Sipadan Island in Malaysia, which highlights just how beautiful the ocean currently is. The other message Samsung underscores here is the the importance of ocean conservation.
The video follows Ai Futaki, a renowned conservationist and Guinness World Record-holding freediver, exploring the waters and marine life while acclaimed nature filmmakers James Brickell and Simon Enderby shot the exploration adventure. The new Over the Horizon arrangement was composed by Academy Award-winning composer Steven Price and performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.
Samsung has promised us that a behind-the-scenes on how the beautiful video was shot in the coming days. While we are waiting for that to arrive, check out Samsung’s Newsroom here to listen to all the different variants of Over The Horizon.
