Samsung holds its Unpacked event every year to unveil the latest and best of its product lines. This year’s event will be unique as it will be accessible in both virtual reality and actual reality. The South Korean smartphone manufacturer announced the metaverse launch. Samsung said that viewers will need to go to “Samsung 837X” to watch the event in the metaverse.
What is Samsung 837X?
Samsung 837X a recreation of Samsung’s flagship New York City store location, recreated within virtual reality platform Decentraland. Here, viewers will be able to watch the Unpacked event in 2D and explore the flagship New York City experience center, collect NFTs and go on quests.
The company said that people will need to connect their MetaMask wallet and share credentials to receive the full experience. Users who log in as guests, according to Samsung, will not get the “full experience.” Samsung hasn’t yet revealed what kind of experience it will offer to its fans in the metaverse.
Why the Metaverse?
The Metaverse is the digital thing of the moment, despite the fact that few people comprehend, use, or live in it. Building a digital brick structure in this little kitschy area is a wink and a nod to the crypto camp, indicating that Samsung is aware of the blockchain and that whatever it announces on its event – smartphones, tablets, and other devices – will be part of the crypto wave.
Samsung Unpacked event date
According to Samsung Newsroom, the Samsung Unpacked 2022 event will take place on February 10 at 10:00 a.m. EST, which is around 8:30 p.m. Indian Standard Time (IST).
