Australia is one of the first countries to launch the Galaxy Studio as it rolls out to a range of countries in Europe and Asia. The studio will operate with a trained team of 26 Samsung staff.

“This is the first time Samsung has given Australians this kind of access to immersive experiences that are built on our latest mobile innovation. People can now have hands-on experience with our new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, as well as virtual reality and wearable technology,” said Richard Fink, vice-president, IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Australia.

“We are incredibly excited and proud to launch Galaxy Studio with support from our partners at Westfield, a programme we believe will set a new benchmark for the way we bring our technology to life for Australians.”
