Who is Samsung Sam?
Before setting foot in SAM’s house, here’s some information about his tenant. First of all, SAM is the diminutive of Samantha, the real name of Samsung’s virtual assistant which has become very popular in 2021.
Although she has been slow to arrive in the metaverse, SAM is a virtual woman who is very proficient in the use of Samsung products. Funny, this 3D rendered virtual mascot is a pure production of Lightfarm (Brazilian design company) and Cheil (Samsung marketing company).
Since then, many have fallen in love with SAM, this square-haired expert, to the point of considering her a “waifu”. As a reminder, “waifu” refers to a fictional female character who is very appealing to fans of manga, anime, and video games.
Before SAM, Samsung has already developed other assistants like Bixby and NEON.
Like LG Electronics, Samsung has also developed crypto wallets that allow them to buy bitcoins and NFTs via smartTVs. In essence, the brand has already positioned itself in the markets for tokens and non-fungible chips for bitcoin mining.
As for his experience in the metaverse, know that Samsung already launched Space Tycoon, on Roblox, last July. Earlier this year, the South Korean company already opened its own shop on Decentraland.
Also, electronics companies like Samsung and LG Electronics no longer hesitate to set foot in the metaverse. Having understood the challenges of virtual worlds and related elements, they will rush into them at full speed.
