Samsung’s first event of the year will take place on February 9, 2022. On that day, be sure to tune in at around 10:00 a.m. EST. At this year’s event, Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S22, S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra. There will also be Galaxy Tab S8, S8+, and the Tab S8 Ultra variants.
Places to watch Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2022
The first place to watch the Samsung Unpacked 2022 event is through the company’s website. On February 9, at around 10:00 a.m. EST, the company’s Newsroom will update with a portal to watch the Unpacked 2022.
Of course, the second obvious place to go is to Samsung’s channel on YouTube. There, we’ll be able to find a live broadcast of the event. Before the event begins, the company will likely add a live stream to the channel page for Unpacked 2022.
Yes, as the headline of this article states, Samsung will be holding its event through the Metaverse. This is the first year, that the company will not only bring its smartphone through its own website but also through the metaverse.
Viewers will be able to head over to what Samsung calls “Samsung 837X.” The event will be held in “Decentraland”, there Samsung 837X is a virtual space where people can not only watch a 2D Samsung Unpacked 2022 but also will be able to explore the flagship New York City experience center, collect NFTs and go on quests.
Samsung is clearly increasing its efforts into the metaverse. However, it’s not clear what is the company’s real goal to expand onto the metaverse. Users will connect their MetaMask wallet and provide credentials. According to Samsung, users who log in as a guest won’t get the “full experience”, though it still isn’t clear what kind of experience Samsung is offering.
