DJ Koh, a mainstay of Samsung Unpacked events in recent years, will step back from the limelight but will still head up Samsung’s IT and mobile communications. The news means Roh could make his Unpacked debut on stage at the launch of the Galaxy S20 series in San Francisco on 11 February. 

Samsung has managed to weather the storm from the 2016 Note 7 fiasco where people’s phones caught on fire through to last year’s delayed release of the Galaxy Fold due to manufacturing defects.

It will surely be the company’s hope that Roh will ensure Samsung does not bring any further marquee products to market with such issues.
