The presentation opened with a lengthy orchestra concert and an intro video that showed attractive-looking folks working out, getting married and biking through New York City while using Samsung products.

Fitness was a key theme of Unpacked, and Samsung took the opportunity to unveil the Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch and Samsung Gear Fit fitness band.

But the company spent most of its time describing the new features of the Galaxy S5, with a focus on fitness and the phone's camera. Samsung Vice President of European Telecommunications Operations Jean-Daniel Ayme said it has the fastest auto-focus of any smartphone at 0.3 seconds.

In addition, Samsung is upgrading the original Galaxy Gear to Tizen OS.
