Watch the newest ads on TV from Samsung, Apple, Coca-Cola and more

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than eight million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time over the weekend.

A few highlights: Samsung hypes the versatility of the "reimagined" camera on the Galaxy S9/S9+. In a Coca-Cola ad, a game-day debate breaks out between basketball fans—eat wings during the game or subs?—but everyone agrees that "You've gotta have ice-cold Coke." And Apple finds an incredibly fun way to promote the Face ID feature on iPhone X (Creativity's Alexandra Jardine has the backstory on the campaign: "A Simple Glance Unlocks Everything (Including an iPhone) in Apple's Spirited Ad").
