Galaxy S4 hits Romania in style

Samsung Galaxy S4

Whatever your opinion is on Samsung, one thing can be said for them: they do it big. From a 6.3” phone to a Broadway show announcing the “next big thing”, Samsung is intent on making an impact. Romania is not immune to their effect, either.

How do you make a big deal about a device in Romania? Helicopters. That’s right, Samsung flew the Galaxy S4 into their announcement event in a helicopter. I guess just, you know, bringing it along with you isn’t good enough. You have to treat it like a state secret, replete with two dapper guards.

Say what you like, but it’s pretty cool that Samsung puts forth so much effort to a smaller market like Romania. I’m sure the cost for a stunt like this is high, but obviously they’re serious about the Galaxy S4 being a hit everywhere. Hopefully, Romanians found it fun and different, or at least cool enough to give the device a look.

The video is below. It’s set to a “James Bond” theme song, which is perhaps the funniest part. Bond uses a Sony Xperia… not a Samsung. Oops.

    What would have been awesome is a conversation between the pilot and the passengers.

    Pilot: “Crazy Helicopter”
    Passengers: “Check”
    Pilot: “2 massive turrets”

    Passengers: “Check”

    Pilot: “Samsung Galaxy S4”

    Passengers: “uhhhh…..”

    Cool.. I can’t wait to get the S4 here in Romania.. I will be buying it from 3rd party retailers, though, as I wanna get the i9500 version..

    LOL It looks like criminals smuggling something, or I’m still affected by Samsung’s dirty tricks on the internet?

    Everyone knows what is going to be since the big event in March so why bother hyping the event now. Just launch the sucker and roll out the 32GB version on AT&T.

    I think they are dragging out the 32GB launch until end of May and maybe that’s why Verizon is not launching and waiting to be last. I am still leaving for AT&T.
