Samsung has unveiled the new ringtone for its flagship Galaxy S9 smartphone which is billed to arrive at the end of this week. The ringtone is the “Over the Horizon” tune which has been the default option for Galaxy phones since 2011.
Each year, with each new generation of Galaxy devices, “Over the Horizon” is rearranged to mirror the aesthetic transformation of the devices themselves. Samsung introduced a jazzy and youthful version last year for the Galaxy S8 and now, here is a classical version for the Galaxy S9. The 2018 “Over the Horizon” ringtone is developed by Icelandic composer Petur Jonsson who we can see perform it in the video below. The mellow sound of the piano and the drone images from Icelandic countryside “arouse the purest, fundamental elements of the human sentiment that often remain hidden in our daily lives”.
According to Samsung, listening to the notes of this year’s piece by Jónsson arouses the purest, fundamental elements of the human sentiment that often remain hidden in our daily lives (whatever that means). In this way, the latest version of Samsung’s brand sound has the power to relax the mind and heal the soul, thus resonating with all who hear it, regardless of their age. Anyway, this isn’t usually the case when people hear their phone ringing. However, the ringtone is a perfect fit for the classic, premium design of the Galaxy S9 which we have seen on the several Press renders that have leaked so far.
