Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S10 series of flagship smartphones - with the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ representing the tenth generation of its Galaxy S series. To commemorate this anniversary, Samsung decided to do something out of this world, quite literally.
Samsung Malaysia, for the first time ever, went ahead and sent off 10 units of the new Galaxy S10 into space, about 80,000 feet above land to take camera shots of Earth from its brilliant rear camera setup. The Galaxy S10 units had a bird's-eye-view of the planet, with some stunning photography they brought back.
The camera sample seen above has been taken about 70,000 feet above ground. You can see the detail in clouds, green land patches, roads, and even water streams thousands of feet above the actual elements.
At the event for this space launch, Samsung decided to give out free Galaxy S10 units to those who accurately guessed where the units would land back on Earth. The 10 closest answers won the phones.
