It appears that South Korean tech powerhouse Samsung will be the first to host its biggest event of the year in the Metaverse. The much-anticipated Galaxy Unpacked 2022, which will air on February 9th, i.e. this Wednesday, will be available in both virtual and physical reality.
Fans of the Metaverse can participate in the event by visiting 837X, a recreation of Samsung’s flagship New York City experience center within the virtual reality platform Decentraland (a blockchain-powered virtual space where users can purchase exclusive digital assets such as land, estates, or Avatar wearables).
However, as with previous Galaxy Unpacked events, fans can still watch the live stream on Samsung Newsroom and its official YouTube channel.
How to Attend Galaxy Unpacked 2022 Virtually
Users must also connect their MetaMask wallet and provide credentials to get the full Samsung 837X experience. However, the company claims that users who log in as guests will not receive the full Galaxy Unpacked experience, as opposed to those who use a Decentraland ID.
To participate in Decentraland events, fans must first create an avatar and a passport after opening Decentraland. MetaMask is used to generate the password.
After you’ve completed the initial setup, click “Explore the World” to teleport your avatar into the Decentraland Genesis Plaza. From there, you can explore Decentraland or use the link on the events page to teleport to the Samsung 837X experience.
Previous leaks indicated that the company would unveil its upcoming Galaxy S22 flagship, as well as the Galaxy Tab S8 lineup, at this year’s event. It will begin at 8:00 PM (PKT), and you can watch it live on Samsung’s official website, YouTube channel, or the Metaverse.
