Increasing competition in the metaverse has led to Samsung announcing its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event. The Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup will formally debut in both virtual and augmented reality. This year’s Unpacked event, where Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy S21 series and many other products, was Samsung’s most anticipated event of the year.
With the Galaxy S22 lineup and other products being announced both virtually via YouTube and Samsung’s website. As well as through the metaverse, this year will be no exception. Samsung 837X, a virtual environment where enthusiasts and others can watch a 2D Unpacked event, is the place to watch the event in the metaverse. Similarly, Samsung’s flagship New York City experience center will be available through the virtual reality platform Decentraland, where visitors can also collect NFTs.
Upon connecting to Decentraland, you will see your avatar outside our spectacular virtual 837X building. Once there, you can enter the doors and experience 837X, the company explained on its website.
The company added that “…you can earn a variety of collectible NFT badges. As well as an exclusive collection of limited-supply Samsung Decentraland wearables to customize your avatars. If you want to link your MetaMask wallet, you can do that here. Stay tuned for more virtual adventures and rewards in 2022.”
Samsung not wanting to fall behind with Galaxy S22
The Metaverse is a fully functioning virtual universe backed by a blockchain. That has attracted the attention of almost all tech giants, such as Facebook (Meta), Microsoft, and Walmart. The South Korean technology giant had previously hinted at the possibility of the Galaxy Note making a comeback. Samsung’s super-premium model, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, shares many similarities with the Galaxy Note. “At Unpacked in February 2022, we’ll introduce you to the most noteworthy S series device we’ve ever created. The next generation of Galaxy S is here, bringing together the greatest experiences of our Samsung Galaxy into one ultimate device,” Samsung President and Head of MX Business TM Roh wrote in a blog post.
