Samsung Galaxy S II is about to enjoy a very special promotion treatment in Japan. On July 15 it’s going to lift off into the stratosphere, the second layer of Earth’s atmosphere, about 30 kilometers (98,000 feet) in the air.
While the Galaxy S II won’t go outside our own Milky Way galaxy, it’s going to join another astronaut member of the Samsung family, the Nexus S, which flew at the same height last Christmas. The Galaxy S II will reach the Stratosphere using special balloons, made specifically to reach those heights.
Here’s a little teaser video to switch your excitement on.
The event will be broadcaster live on UStream on July 15th, so mark your calendars everybody, it’s going to be a wild ride.. and fall.
