Boldly going where no selfie has gone before, Samsung recently enlisted the help of actor, model and philanthropist Cara Delevingne.
At an event hosted by Radio 1’s Clara Amfo, Cara revealed the initiative to give everyone the opportunity to get their face in space.
Cara’s contribution was holding up a peace sign and wearing an astronaut helmet. The moment was also commemorated with a group selfie, taken by Cara, and featured A-list event attendees including; Italian rapper, singer and songwriter Fedez, best known as a judge on the Italian X Factor and his 2019 hit ‘Holding Out For You’ featuring Zara Larsson.
Cara Delevingne said, “I’m honored to be Samsung’s SpaceSelfie pioneer! To celebrate, I wanted to take the first group selfie to go to space. I can’t wait for my fans to join us in space and get their hands on a SpaceSelfie of their own.”
SpaceSelfie gives consumers the chance to join Cara in space by uploading a photo to Samsung’s ‘Mission Control’ website: www.samsung.com/spaceselfie.
Benjamin Braun, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung Europe said, “Tonight, we made history by unveiling the first selfie sent into space. Our relentless pioneering spirit continues to show that amazing things happen on a Samsung screens – even from the stratosphere.”
“Our ethos is Do What You Can’t and the Samsung SpaceSelfie is just that. We continually break the boundaries of what is possible with innovation and tonight’s SpaceSelfie launch is no different.”
Images will then be selected at random, displayed on Galaxy S10 5G’s 6.7-inch screen and captured using a unique view of planet earth as the backdrop. This photo will be sent back down to earth for its owner to share on social media.
