To commemorate the 10th anniversary of its Galaxy S series, Samsung chose the epic route. It attempted an unprecedented stunt – by launching its Galaxy S10 into the earth’s stratosphere, becoming the nation’s first smartphone brand to undertake such an out-of-this-world endeavour.
The Galaxy S10 is mounted onto a weather balloon, then launched 80,000ft into the air. Upon reaching the altitude, the Galaxy S10 will take a birds-eye view of the earth, expectedly brighter and more dynamic than taken on any other smartphone. Thanks to its latest pro-grade camera and the ability to shoot videos in HDR10+.
It’s an epic way to demonstrate the Galaxy S10’s new camera, I give them that. But that’s not all its intent. Samsung’s objective is also to encourage interactivity and spur excitement amongst fans and customers. Throughout the phone’s flight into space, the audience keeping tabs on-ground can join an online contest to predict where the Galaxy S10 will land. They can do this by dropping a pin on the mapped locations.
Pins that are closest to the Galaxy S10’s landing site will win a brand new Galaxy S10.
The contest entitled “Be Unbeaten” will run from 1 March until 4 March 2019.

Don’t forget that the Galaxy S10 nationwide road show will be happening from 8 March until 10 March 2019. Look out for freebies worth up to MYR1,079 with each purchase of the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e.
