Samsung's New Galaxy S22 Smartphone Will Include NFTs in Pre-Orders
Samsung's flagship devices will be accompanied by a unique NFT from Theta Network for users who pre-ordered in South Korea.
In a partnership with Theta Labs, the electronic manufacturer giant, Samsung, will be giving commemorative non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for people who pre-ordered either the Galaxy S22 smartphone or the Samsung Tablet S8.
The NFTs reportedly come equipped with "ongoing membership benefits and privileges," Mitch Liu, CEO and co-founder of Theta Labs, said to Decrypt. A Theta spokesperson could not share further details with Decrypt as to what these benefits would be, however.
Theta Labs is the company behind the Theta Network blockchain project as well as THETA.tv, a crypto-native video streaming service. Theta Labs is promoting its network in the esports and video streaming niches, and the native $THETA token incentivizes activity on its platforms.
Customers who pre-ordered Samsung's Galaxy S22 or Tablet S8 can get their NFTs by enrolling with ThetaDrop and using a unique code created by their "Samsung Members" app.
Pre-orders began on February 9 and the devices will be available for purchase on February 25. This isn't Samsung's first foray into crypto, nor is it its first collaboration with the Theta Network.
