A record previously set by Xiaomi was broken by the Galaxy S22 Ultra by a large distance.
Samsung claims the Galaxy S22 Ultra helped them set a Guinness World Record. Accordingly, Samsung is currently the record holder for the title of “Most people unboxing at the same time” with the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
It may sound strange, but this record is pre-existing and the company that holds the previous title is Xiaomi. In 2019, the company set a record with 703 people opening the box at the same time.
Last week, Samsung India set a new record through the #EpicUnboxing event held on March 5. Samsung‘s number is almost triple Xiaomi‘s record with 1820 simultaneous unboxing over 17 cities.
The #EpicUnboxing event is celebrated with a select number of Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-order customers getting early delivery, to 1820 people. The simultaneous unboxing event took place at 19 locations in 17 cities across India.
To mark the event, Samsung gave these customers a limited edition box containing the Galaxy S22 Ultra along with the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Buds 2, along with a thank you note.
Aditya Babbar, Senior Director & Head of Product Marketing, Samsung India, said: “Thanks to all our users and avid fans who came together to make this a calendar day. history of Samsung.”
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is up for pre-order in India with prices starting at INR 109,999 ($1,433) and the device is expected to ship later this week. Pre-order customers will also receive a free Galaxy Watch 4.
