Luxury retreats flooded with overseas demand as India opens up to foreign tourists – The Island
Samsung, the No.1 smartphone brand in Sri Lanka, recently unveiled its latest high-end flagship series, the Samsung Galaxy S22. The event, which included student ambassadors and Samsung members, took off on a high note and received phenomenal feedback in response to a company press release.
“Samsung Student Ambassadors are the brand’s young representatives from many reputable universities across the country. The Samsung Student Ambassador Program has emerged as a platform for young and talented university students in Sri Lanka to enhance their knowledge and skills,” he said.
“Among them, great innovators were selected and had the chance to undergo incredible training programs and to be exposed to many technology experts and industry leaders. In addition to these young ambassadors, high-level members who provide advice to Samsung Galaxy users to help them solve their product-related issues and share the Samsung Galaxy experience were also present at the event.
The event kicked off on a high note as these student ambassadors, with the help of Samsung members, were able to experience the amazing features of the Galaxy S22 series firsthand. Several booths were erected to experience the series’ more premium features, including “noctograph” function, 5G compatibility and gaming. In addition, the students also had the opportunity to meet Samsung’s Managing Director, Mr. Kevin SungSu YOU, as well as Samsung staff, influencers and Samsung Brand Ambassador Yohani de Silva. They also got a glimpse of 5G technologies in Sri Lanka, according to the statement.
“We are thrilled to introduce these cutting-edge, next-generation products to the next generation of consumers,” said Mr. Kevin SungSu YOU, General Manager of Samsung Sri Lanka. “It was a great opportunity for the Student Ambassadors and Samsung members to experience the excellence of the Samsung Galaxy S22 first-hand. Our Ambassadors and Members have been a tremendous support throughout this journey and we are honored to have them as well at our launch.

It was an amazing event to be part of. It was also great to meet Samsung staff, celebrities, student ambassadors and expert level members. I used to watch launch events online for a long time.
